After driving to 3 different Thai places on Thanksgiving Monday, we finally found an open one. Came across Khao San on Urbanspoon with good reviews. Apparently the place is quite new. Inviting atmosphere with comfortable banquettes and a thorough but fairly expensive menu.
We ordered spring rolls for appetizer, it was obvious they were homemade, which was quite a treat and rarity at most Asian restaurants. As mains we opted for a chicken panang curry, coconut rice and pad thai. The curry was exactly what you would expect, nothing bad, nothing out of the ordinary. The pad thai was the highlight. It was perfectly cooked with a little bit of char on the tofu and meat. Exceptional balance of flavours. Probably one of the best pad thai I have had.
friendly staff, enjoyable experience. I will return on our next visit to Calgary.
