Best Vegetarian Thai!
Posted on 11 / 11 / 2013
This is the best Thai vegetarian restaurant I've been and I've been to a few including the ones in LA and Irvine. So glad to find this restaurant.
I like their Spicy Noodle and Veggie Chicken Ka Pow. We ordered with heat level 5 out of 10 and they were spicy enough without adding more hot sauce or chilies. The dishes were designed to be served for one person but you can still share in a family style dinner with your group, ask for plates.
We ordered an appetizer, 'tuna' in flower cups that is popular from chef specialty menu. We thought that it was just ok. The 'tuna' salad is vegan and I know what it is made of since I make vegan tuna salad at home with that ingredient. The filling/ salad was too salty in my opinion. It would have been better if it was mixed with other ingredients such as cube potatoes or yam to reduce the saltiness. There is a version of this with tofu, it may be better and less salty.
However, the veg chicken ka pow with yellow noodle was soooo gooood. The cut green beans were crunchy and the chicken was chewy. There were a lot of holy basil in the dish. Super yummy!
The Spicy Noodle was served with crispy tofu as we requested. YUM! I think their wok is so hot that the dishes came out so hot and crispy. The restaurant accommodate vegans very well, just communicate with them.
I wish that we have more people so we can try many other dishes but we will be back.
Service was quick and friendly. The restaurant is small so maybe during a peak time there is a wait time although we didn't wait too long on a Saturday night. I would recommend a reservation for a group. Also, parking can be hard in this area.
Tasty, Large portions, Great service
