New Latitude Eight Thai Grill in Chandler

hungryinaz | Jun 21, 2008 08:59 AM

There's a hip little gourmet-ish Asian restaurant in historic downtown Chandler that opened recently. Tried it last night and although our Musamman Short Rib ($16) needed more cooking time, the flavors were great and the presentation was upscale. We were happy overall with our meal. The Tom Kah soup broth was poured over the ingredients at the table which was fun and different from our typical Thai stops (Swaddee, Thai House, etc.). The yellow chicken curry ($11) was served on a deep plate and had a wonderful aroma and flavor. From what we could gather, the place is owned by a mom/son team. The son, David, was very friendly and talkative w/o being over-talkative. It's a 30 minute drive from our northeast Mesa house, but if Latitude Eight were in my hood I'd probably be there once a week. It's BYOB right now but they're working on a liquor license.
