4912 Thai Cuisine

A friendly neighborhood place that will kick up or tone down the spice for each customer.

From November 2004

Regulars 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.
