I had the pleasure of eating at Suriya Thai last night on Valencia and was incredibly pleased. The variety and creativity of the dishes was like nothing I have seen in a Thai resturant before. Since I live in Oakland I would like to find something close to home. I think that Suriya focuses on Northern Thai dishes, and that is where the uniqueness comes from? So what are you favorite Thai places in the East Bay, looking for all good Thai, but Nothern particularly.
