From November 2004Regulars get a hearty greeting at this neighborhood Thai restaurant; regulars who haven't been in for a while are given the opportunity to explain their absence. Both the greetings and the low prices keep customers coming back. It's a bargain at lunch: The specials--each consisting of an appetizer, main course, and rice--are about $6. The cooking is not subtle, but the food is hearty and fresh.
The crust on the stuffed chicken wings often found in Thai restaurants was hard and tough, but main-course chicken with basil was hot with chilies and nicely cooked--you can't complain too much for $6. Thai salads, including larb--the spicy ground chicken--and the seafood salad, may be ordered mild or spicy. The menu has a good selection of red and green curries and several good vegetarian options.
