This sleek, modern neighborhood spot offers reliable, tasty Thai food, and atmosphere to boot. The long, narrow space is intimate, with cherrywood paneling, red silk lighting fixtures, lots of candlelight, and a hip-hop soundtrack. Shrimp dumplings combine plentiful chunks of shrimp and ground chicken, and the Tom Kha soup is robust in both taste and quantity. Despite tending toward the greasy, Khao Soi and Penang curry pack a seriously spicy punch—a strong and sweet Thai iced coffee can ease the pain for more delicate palates.Recommended Dishes
