Well-executed, authentic Thai classics anchor the menu at Khao Sarn, with some street-food-inspired dishes rounding out the mix. There's a Manhattan branch of this mini-chain, and this location features dim lighting and hand-painted walls decked with colorful artwork. Chicken and tofu satays are tasty, particularly with their accompanying super-sweet peanut sauce; go with those or with the house dumplings, wrapped in a thin white dough and filled with a similarly flavored mix of chicken and crushed peanut. Standards like pad Thai and drunken noodles hold up, but it’s the specials menu that has the good stuff. Swimming Angel Chicken and Volcanic Shrimp are intriguing, Mango Sha Sha is the standout; it's two crispy duck legs atop a flavorful mélange of boneless duck meat with mango slices and a spicy sauce. Dessert’s worth it too: try the spring-roll-esque banana rolls, hot on the inside, drizzled in hot fudge and honey, served with mango ice cream and whipped cream.Recommended Dishes
