Geisha prints on the salmon sponge-painted walls vivify an otherwise generic dining room composed of simple wooden tables and celadon-hued banquettes. Thankfully, the food is bolder. The menu is divided into Thai classics and pan-Asian creations; the most successful dishes are Malaysian inspired. Roti canai, buttery multilayered flatbread served with a small bowl of lightly spiced chicken and potato curry, stands out from Chinatown versions in the extra amount of poultry included. A duck salad doesn’t skimp on protein either: crisp-skinned slices of medium-rare magret and a drumstick fan across a tart green-mango slaw. The laksa soup, teeming with shrimp, plump scallops, fried tofu puffs and sliced okra is so rich and thick with coconut milk here that it’s closer to a curry. Prominently displayed lunch specials and stacks of paper takeout menus give away Asiana’s core patronage: daytime office workers; evening diners may find themselves alone with plates of pad Thai.Recommended Dishes
