Neisha Thai: Review

foodiejudy | Jan 31, 2005 05:04 PM

My husband and I dined at Neisha Thai restaurant in Tenleytown, DC (Wisconsin Avenue) and quite enjoyed the experience. On the night we dined, a Saturday, they had live music, a guitarist and flutist, who played nice, soft jazz that didn't interfere with conversations but sounded good. We were seated next to the fountain which burbled along nicely. Our spring roll appetizer, while rather ordinary, was still well-cooked and tasted good. However, we really had to emphasize the addition of spiciness to our food (at least to mine. My husband doesn't care for spicy). The spring rolls were accompanied by nice carrot curls and a soy sauce that was a bit on the sweet side. For entrees, we enjoyed their Pad Thai, which, while a bit too sweet for me, had a nice ratio of peanuts, bean sprouts and noodles. I ordered the mixed seafood in a spicy sauce and the seafood wasn't too heavily sauced and properly cooked (i.e., squid not tough). The sauce was a tasty, light curry and came again with carrot curls and some red cabbage. For dessert we both enjoyed their coconut ice cream with jackfruit which was a refreshing, light end to the meal. The service is friendly, professional and quick without rushing you or bringing courses out on top of each other which is a pet peeve of mine.
