Our favorite Thai restaurant in Lexington
Posted on 06 / 11 / 2009
Planet Thai is my wife's and my favorite Thai restaurant in Lexington. They offer several vegetarian and vegan (I think) Thai dishes that we love. Our favorites are the red and green curry dishes: theirs is nicely hot (we order 4/5 stars for heat/spiciness) with just a light touch of sweetness in the coconut milk. The staff is friendly and the restaurant has the positive feel of a family-owned establishment (though I can't vouch for that -- but they certainly aren't corporate-owned). Another thing we love about Planet Thai is the fact that most of the vegetarian selections are under $10, so the price is right. We've eaten at Planet Thai @10 times and have always had a good experience.
great red/green curry (w/tofu) dishes, good value, family-owned(?)
the animal lover in me hates to see the , giant fish squished into a big (but not, big enough) aquarium in the dining room
