There was a thread on this board about six months ago regarding Vanni's Innovative Thai restaurant (Dwight/San Pablo, Berkeley) and I've meant to try it since then.
Finally did. Two words for you: Calamari Salad.
I will never be able to eat calamari salad anywhere else ever again. The most beautiful, fresh, slightly smoky, tender calamari I've ever tasted with perfect vegetables and dressing. Go eat it. I'm serious.
Everything else was tasty too, especially the special crab curry. A little pricier than your average thai joint, but we dug it!
