I have eaten at most and am wondering how they stack up at the moment?
One exception (and I have a caveat) is I'm not sure if I have eaten at The Rice Pot on State Street. (I think) I ate at this location some two-three years ago and it was called something else or, there is/was another restaurant very nearby The Rice Pot. It had a funny name (like, "Pan Asian International") which sounded more like an Asian importer than a Thai restaurant. We had one good meal there and one very poor, disappointing one. Did The Rice Bowl take over that operation a while back?
Is The Rice Bowl owned by the same people that own Thai Taste, on Chapel Street? Is The Rice Bowl better?
I hear there are two or more in Hamden. I think we ate at one (a long time ago) that was on Whitney Avenue, in Hamden. Upscale place.
Anything within five or so miles of New Haven that's better than average?
