Let me start by saying that there is no really great
Thai to be had in Modesto. That's a shame, as we have
had a large influx of SE Asian immigrants, yet no
fabulous Thai, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Lao, etc. so far.
That said, you can get a very serviceable meal at the
Thailand Restaurant in downtown, 10th St. between I & J
Streets. I think their Pad Thai is quite good, and the
Tom Ym "Sam Glur" soup is just outstanding. I try to
go with a group and order a variety of dishes to share,
as typically seems to work best at Asian restaurants
generally. But today I had the "businessman's lunch"
off the lunch menu--chicken with mushrooms, julienned
ginger, scallions, and some lovely green chiles, all
with a scoop of steamed rice. Quite tasty and a good
filling lunch.
