Thai Delight in Sunnyvale (long)

hao | Oct 11, 200108:39 PM

i tried this place last night with a couple of friend and will definitely be coming back again. we got to the restaurant at 9pm and they were still open! all three of us were starving but we controlled ourselves and ordered four dishes: papaya salad, yellow curry with chicken, prawns sauteed with garlic, and wide flat rice noodle stir fried with shrimps and brocoli(pad see haw).

papaya salad - i thought the papaya needed to be more finely grated but my two companions did not have a problem with this. one did mention that more chopped peanuts would make the dish better and i agreed. we all agree that the lime dressing was just right.

yellow curry w/ chicken - my favorite dish of the night. the chicken was fork tender and the curry had a nice depth and a rich, creamy texture.

prawn sauteed w/ garlic - huge prawns cooked perfectly. the sauce was thick, garlicky and sweet but not coyly so.

pad see haw - i thought the dish needed a little more salt or fish sauce but once again, my dining companions disagree. the noodles had the smoky flavor of a good stir fry, was not overly oily, and the ingredients were fresh.

the service was very friendly and even though we were the last one in and last one out, we never felt rushed. the tab came out to be $16/person, after tax and tips.
