Aura promises Thai fusion. What it delivers are a few Chinese and Japanese dishes (shu mai, edamame, spring rolls) on a standard Thai menu. Considering the restaurant’s lineage—part of Parkpoom Wattanasuparp’s otherwise reliable mini-chain, which includes Aceluck and Thai Chai-yo—the kitchen’s job on the culinary transplants alongside flavor-flattened native cuisine comes as a disappointment. About all that Aura shares with its kin eateries is an airy, stripped-down aesthetic. Pale yellow walls and exposed brick play off high ceilings, an exposed duct, and blond-wood furniture. Just three watercolors of Thai longboat scenes adorn the walls.
