Da's Thai at the Y--has anyone been? (Princeton)

Caralien | Jun 26, 2009 09:40 AM

I've searched the boards, and couldn't find a consensus regarding a good Thai restaurant in the area.

The places we've been to haven't been spectacular:

Tom Yum Goong (Princeton): The best here, but that is not saying a lot. It's pretty, the service friendly, but the food is oversalted and getting the attention of a server after the food hits the table is difficult.

Thai Village (Princeton): Not good. Greasy food which has an off smell; surly service.

Royal Orchid (East Windsor): Disappointing. If they concentrated on Thai instead of pan-Asian, might be better.

Mie Thai (North Brunswick) closed down and was replaced with another Thai restaurant (Aroma?) which had a pan-Asian menu with what appeared to be the top 10 of what Americans seem to order (Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, Japanese, Thai); I haven't had much luck with schitzophrenic menus

I couldn't find anything on Da's Thai Cafe; has anyone been there? We almost went one afternoon, then realised it was in the YMCA (we had planned on a leisurely lunch with wine).

Are there any other Thai recommendations (within 30 minutes, preferably)? Particularly for a great beef salad, papaya salad, or steaming bowl (with flames) of tom yum goong--served with real Jasmine rice?
