Mong Kut Thai Gold, brief review

At 471 Danforth Ave, just west of Pape.

We had dinner here tonight. Ordered: 1) Sup Noa Mai. The menu describes this as a Northeast style salad. Bamboo shoots served warm with lots of funky fish sauce, lemon juice, coriander. and chili sauce. This was our favourite dish, a unique offering for Toronto. Sticky rice, listed as an ingredient in the menu description, was absent.
2)Kanom Jeen Num Ya Kai, A ground chicken yellow curry, served with noodles. This was an unremarkable but tasty enough curry. Decent level of heat. Needed a bit more noodles to wipe up the sauce.
3)Kua-Tiew Nuer, beef noodle soup. Worst dish of our meal. They forgot to add the flavour here, nothing like Sukhothai's similar named offering. A very meek broth, vermicelli noodles, chewy unseasoned beef, watery bok choi and mushrooms. I would not order this again.

Go for the unique dishes at the back of the menu. Prices were a little high I thought, at around $10+ per dish. I'm craving Sukhothai now.
