Thai Chili - preliminary scouting report

janet of Reno | May 1, 200405:16 PM

Stopped in there yesterday for a late solo lunch. I'm not going to make a full report, as I ordered a simple dish and was so darn hungry that anything would have tasted good...but thought I'd give a brief report.

Reno chowhounds will recall that this is the restaurant that took over when SS Supra closed. (South Virginia, approximate cross st. Cheney). I will say they cleaned it up a lot...nice decor, white tablecloths and all. Prices are reasonable. There are a few unusual items on the menu, and the usual standards.

I had the lunch special 5.95.. It consists of soup (a chicken-rice soup, pretty standard), a "curry puff" (kind of a Thai version of a fried wonton, too bland for my taste), steamed rice, and a choice of about six or seven entrees. I had the "peanut forest": chicken on steamed spinach with a peanut sauce. Spinach was deliciously fresh, peanut sauce a little bland, but spiced up nicely with the hot sauce brought to the table.

Anyway, if the spinach is any indication, they make an effort to use very fresh ingredients. Might be worth a trip with a larger group to check it out....
