Great new Thai place in Tuckahoe

UncleAndy | Aug 26, 2011 12:11 PM

Aries just opened 3wks ago on the site of the now defunct Tangerine Thai (and previously Garlic & Pepper). I stopped in there a couple of days after they opened to meet the new owners & check it out. Everything we had was absolutely delicious, the prices were very reasonable, the portions were very generous & these are just 3 of the nicest people! The service was great, as it should be considering that we were the only customers. It's BYOB until they get a liquor license.
Here's what we had:
1) Assorted Appetizers ($19) consisting of:
a) Spiced Pan-Seared Tuna....(6"long x 2"diameter cylinder)
b) Summer Rolls (4)..carrots, mint, basil, tofu, rice noodles, lettuce, etc. w/ tamarind sauce
c) Golden Curry Puffs (4)...chicken, onions, potato, curry w/ cucumber relish
d) Mini Crab Cakes (4) ...actually more like a crab mixture on toast wedges
e) Crispy Thai Calamari served with a wonderful mayo vinaigrette dipping sauce

2) Papaya Salad ($10) papaya strings, shredded spiced beef, roasted garlic, peanuts &
tomatoes in a lime vinaigrette with sticky rice croutons.......YUM!

3) Narm Tok ($13)...a steak salad made of spicy sauteed beef flank, red onions, mint leaves &
Thai condiments, served with coconut sticky rice.

The 3 of us had intended to try an entree or two but the appetizers were just too much; so much so that we had to take a doggie bag home.

I hope this little place has better luck than it's predecessors, what with the location being so bad. The menu shows a website ( but it doesn't seem to be up yet. They also don't have a delivery person yet. Try it before the location kills it. The food really IS worth it!!

btw: The little street they're on has been closed for repair since before they opened & from the look of it will remain so for quite a while. Parking was always nearly impossible on this block but there's a large municipal lot about 100ft from the place. It's next to the bridge that crosses the Metro North tracks adjacent to the Tuckahoe Station. There's a luncheonette called Bentley's right opposite the lot...and Aries is immediately behind Bentley's (in the same building).
