a while back I remember driving by spoon thai on western a little south of lincoln square and noticing it seemed full of thais. I have meant to go back and check it out but haven't gotten around to it.
I checked the metromix site for info about it and am now am more intrigued than ever - on the review page are phrases like:
"Spicy, not on english menu"
"Ask for the thai version if you want to avoid the americanization of thai food."
