Hamden CT - Thai Extrodinaire!

Just returned from an exceptional experience at The Terrace restaurant on Dixwell Avenue in Hamden. A few months ago, a flyer was on our mailbox for this restaurant, newly opened. It looked interesting because the description of:

'...delicious and uncommon Thai foods with French look by an experienced Thai chef who understands the spirit of Thai foods, cooks by her passion, and advanced her skill in Paul Bocuse Culinary Institute......"

that really piqued my interest.
So tonight we sought it out and were very, very excited by this new restaurant. This Thai food is so elevated beyond what I have experienced, beautiful presentations, wonderful flavors - I am gushing, I know, but I think this place really deserves an extreme rec! Spring rolls were best I have ever tasted, the papaya salad was just amazing, I had a yellow vegetable curry and my other had duck curry which he raved about. I had to try a dessert, there was Spaghetti and Meatballs - which was really rich very vanilla ice cream extruded out to look like a plate of pasta with a delicious strawberry sauce and 2 chocolate truffles (meatballs) - sounds silly but was so creative and really delicious. I wish this restaurant the best success. You can taste and see her love and passion for her cooking. The decor is very euro/simple and pleasant and the waiter was charming and helpful.
