Nana Thai in Old Pasadena - quick review

AltadenaJack | Feb 23, 2005 12:40 AM

Been to Nana twice, both for takeout but spent some time in the nice space while I waited.

Very nicely decorated room, quite small but lit with lots of candles and in a modern, understated way. Classy and romantic, in a modern, understated way (that'll be my theme in this review).

Foodwise I think they have a menu that covers the bases and delivers good, clean flavors. Quality ingredients, as good or better than others in the area. Standouts for me are cashew chicken and crying tiger beef (great sauce here) and I hear from my cohorts that a mild veggie/shrimp dish was also good. Not as varied as some of the other joints (like Saladang, which has some funky sweet westernized (?) items and Saladang Song, which has some great variety) but good in a modern, understated way (see, I knew I could work that in!).

Nice folks, too. The place is absolutely worth a try and I'm interested in hearing the impressions of others.

Nana is on Holly Street, between Fair Oaks and Raymond, just across from Tibet/Nepal House.

Cheers -
