I had occasion to have lunch in the THAI PAVILION in Astoria and found it quite good. They have an inexpensive lunch menu and for $5.95 I had their vegetable Pad Thai, soup and a salad. The chicken soup was a nice broth, pungently spicey with some fresh mushrooms and pieces of chicken. Pad Thai is Pad Thai and can be quite variable from restaurant to restaurant. Here, I found it most satisfying with a healthy mix of fresh vegetables, noodles, bean sprouts, peanuts and a nice sauce.
I will return for a full dinner and see how that goes. This meal was quite good, I thought. In a borough that seems to have had a decline in good Thai restaurants recently, this might be one to focus on. Thai Pavilion is at 37-10 30th Ave. (between 37th and 38th streets) in Astoria, Queens. Any thoughts on the Thai Pavilion from the Thai experts on this site?
