China thinks King of Thai Noodle House #2 has the best Thai food for the money in the city. Som tum (green papaya salad) is very satisfying–tart, roughly shredded papaya with tiny pink dried shrimp mixed in. Kao pad gang khew warn (stir-fried rice with green curry paste, chicken, long beans, bamboo shoots, and basil) is very flavorful, with lots of lean chicken and basil. Dishes ordered medium come out quite spicy–a welcome piece of news for non-Thai hounds who seek “Thai spicy” and are leery of getting gringoed. Lunch for two, with tea, after tip, is around $18.
