Finally! Thai takeout comes to Sugar Hill

verbena | Dec 28, 201002:35 PM

To a laundromat of all places. We've watched with trepidation as it crept through various stages of renovation and readiness and finally opened a few weeks back. We have ordered three times so far. A tiny menu of curries and noodles. Very inexpensive. The curries have been surprisingly good: spicy, nuanced, authentic for wont of a better word. Noodles, though tasty, seem overcooked and a bit mushy. Pad thai better than pad see yew. Ka Praw pretty good but not memorable. Tom Yum soup zingy and good, but lacking that transcendent balance of salty, fishy, and spicy.

Overall, a boon to a neighborhood with no other thai in sight. Its not Sri, but most certainly not the sweetish gloppy faux thai of so many places downtown. Portions of curries are small, noodles large. Very nice people and shockingly fast delivery. They weren't up on menu pages or has a site as of last week.

Tri Thai 212-234-4711
St. Nicholas at 148th (in the strip mall with the rent-a-center)
