Add this to your list of worthwhile Thai restaurants in Greenville*. We stopped in for lunch yesterday and got much more than we'd bargained for. I had sweet basil chicken, ordered Thai hot, and my wife had sweet and sour shrimp. Unfortunately, I'm allergic to shrimp and wasn't able to try hers. My basil chicken was great, though- it had the sort of complex spiciness that I am always looking for. Their normal spiciness scale runs from A-E, with E being the hottest. If you want Thai hot, you have to ask. The chef will apparently make it as hot as you want it, although Double Thai Hot is apparently as high as they routinely go. The waiter did say that they have a regular who always comes in and orders curries at five times Thai Hot. I eat spicy food fairly frequently, and the Thai Hot was very good, but didn't really push any limits. I'll try the double Thai hot next time.

What really made the meal for me was the starters- each entree came with a soup and an egg/spring roll. The soup was wonderful- IIRC a mix of chicken and fish stock, fresh cilantro, rice, mushrooms. Really great, and I enjoyed it as much as I did my main dish. The roll was in a springroll wrapper but had contents more similar to an eggroll- although it was vegetarian. Very good though, and it came with a great sweet and sour sauce.

They do sushi in the evenings, as well, which we are going back to try soon. I'm interested to go through the rest of the menu so as to make a comparison with Saeng Thai. What I had yesterday was as good as the best food I've had from Saeng Thai, though.
