Pam Real Thai

i just went to Pam Real Thai on 49th street this week after reading such good reviews of the place in the past (although i can't seem to find them now on chowhound). i was pretty disappointed. maybe i've been spoiled by sripraphai, but i thought Pam REal was pretty average. they weren't terrible, but i wouldn't make a special effort to go there again.

my dining mate and i shared a fried taro-root cube appetizer. t hat was pretty tasty, actually. and then your standard green papaya salad, which was pretty standard, but definitely no spiciness in it.

entrees -- green curry with overcooked dry chicken. the curry itself was pretty OK, nothign special.
and one on the "chef's recommendations" list -- sauteed fish fillet with veggies, which was deep friend nuggets of fish fillet (i.e., NOT fresh fish!), and sauteed chopped bokchoy with garlic, which i could have made myself at home.

overall, it was an OK restaurant. i'd probably go back if i lived in the neighborhood, but since i have Pongsri in Chinatown nearby me, i'll just stick with Pongsri.
