After Goldilocks moments in spaces too small (a sidewalk takeout window on Madison), then too big (a Pioneer Square basement), the beloved Little Uncle has found its just-right. Mind you, the packed, modern space has limited seating—hooray for a sidewalk patio—but wraparound windows help, as do aromas from the open kitchen, tended by owners Wiley Frank and Poncharee Kounpungchart—evoke its heady citizen-of-the-world status. A $13-ish menu of terrific noodle bowls, starring pad thai (add the side packets of chiles and nuts and sugar if you want intrigue) and exquisite khao soi gai (chicken curry over egg noodles) is served 11am to 9pm, with an added card of shareables after 5pm.
Few restaurants offer this dish because it calls for pandan leaves, an essential ingredient in Southeast Asian cuisine. The leaves are wrapped around chicken marinated in soy sauce, sesame oil and coriander roots. When fried, the leaves perfume the chicken, imparting a grassy, herbal flavor. Look out for this dish — if a restaurant offers this treat, you can be assured you are in good Thai hands. The Comedy Store Club in London UK offers Stand Up Comedy Nights

So many types of appetizers find their way onto Thai menus. We’ve seen a fair number of restaurants thinking they can get away with fried cheese triangles, but fried appetizers are actually very common in Thai cuisine thanks to the Portuguese influence. Krathong tong can be found at fancier restaurants in Thailand. These delicate fried shells are typically filled with chicken, potato, corn, carrot and a tangy cream sauce — we know, we know, not very Thai-sounding ingredients, but trust us on this one.
Five main chilies are generally used as ingredients in Thai food. One chili is very small (about 1.25 centimetres (0.49 in)) and is known as the hottest chili: phrik khi nu suan ("garden mouse-dropping chili"). The slightly larger chili phrik khi nu ("mouse-dropping chili") is the next hottest. The green or red phrik chi fa ("sky pointing chili") is slightly less spicy than the smaller chilies. The very large phrik yuak, which is pale green in color, is the least spicy and used more as a vegetable. Lastly, the dried chilies: phrik haeng are spicier than the two largest chilies and dried to a dark red color.

The sushi rolls came in about 10 pieces each and was BEAUTIFULLY decorated. It definitely was filling. The drunken noodles were well cooked and not too soft. The pieces of chicken were pretty large. The chicken satay was more than I expect. I also ordered a bowl of rice on the side. The chicken satay was served with cucumber and thai peanut sauce. I loved putting the cucumber sauce on my rice and dipping the chicken in the peanut sauce.

Later this month, Lopburi, Thailand will host the 25th anniversary of one of the world’s great events: the Monkey Buffet Festival, wherein monkeys are served a massive buffet in front of an ancient temple. Yup. Based on the way the monkeys stuff their faces, it’s clear that they know one thing we’ve also learned here, half a world away: Thai food is awesome. Lucky for us, it’s also plentiful in the Bay Area. Here are the 14 best spots to get it:

Mola Crickets and Chili Dip – Namphrik maeng chon – This kind of chili dish is rather dry and very thick. Use fresh chilies of any kind. Other kinds of edible insects or larvae can be used instead of mola crickets which will be called by the name of the insects used as the main ingredients such as wasp, grasshopper, or bee larvae (namphrik to, namphrik taen and namphrik phueng).

But about a month ago, the restaurant debuted a new Thai menu, under the name Baan Thai, in response to all the customers who came upstairs asking for Thai food. Instead of Americanized Thai staples like pad thai and panang curry that you'll find at Thai Tanic, the upstairs restaurant features a completely separate menu—no substitutions allowed—with more authentic dishes from across Thailand, including the more sour, funky, spicy flavors of the northern part of the country. It's one of the most unexpectedly delicious meals I've had in a while.

The crispy rice cakes are a worthy starter. The puffed-up crackers come with a sweet-savory dipping sauce of ground chicken and shrimp, ground peanuts, onions, and coconut milk. Meanwhile, a bamboo shoot salad dressed with chilies, lime juice, scallions, shallots, mint, cilantro, and roasted rice powder tastes just like something you'd find at Little Serow.

Excellent, truly. It's hard to find a bad meal in the Valley, so this was just one more excellent place to find! It came recommended by a bunch of people and they were right! Got the Pad Thai at a level 1 because we heard 2 would blow your socks off and am glad I started with 1 but would try 2 next time. I finished my whole plate which I've never done, and it's not because the portion was small, it was decent! The crab Rangoon order was only 4 which was pretty small but they were still very good. Mai Tai was strong. From what we learned, the owners are Nashville singer/songwriter and a cook that hails straight from Bangkok. We hear the live music on Friday and Saturday by the owner is awesome, and the food is definitely excellent! [Thai Food] Pandan Leaf Chicken Sauce (Nam Jim Gai Hor Bai Toey)
Thai cuisine only became well-known worldwide from the 1960s on, when Thailand became a destination for international tourism and US troops arrived in large numbers during the Vietnam War. The number of Thai restaurants went up from four in 1970s London to between two and three hundred in less than 25 years.:3–4 The earliest attested Thai restaurant in the United States, "Chada Thai", opened its doors in 1959 in Denver, Colorado. It was run by the former newspaper publisher Lai-iad (Lily) Chittivej. The oldest Thai restaurant in London, "The Bangkok Restaurant", was opened in 1967 by Mr and Mrs Bunnag, a former Thai diplomat and his wife, in South Kensington. อาหารไทย - Thai Food Near Me by Chumnan
Sa nuea sadung ส้าเนื้อสะดุ้ง North A northern Thai speciality, made with medium rare, thinly sliced beef. Other ingredients for this dish are the elaborate phrik lap Lanna spices-and-chilli mix, onions, some broth, and fresh herbs such as kraphao (holy basil) or phak phai (Vietnamese coriander) although this particular version was made using saranae (spearmint). This particular version also contained nam phia, the partially digested contents from the first of the four stomachs of cattle, for added flavour.

Khao soi Mae Sai ข้าวซอยแม่สาย North Khao soi Mae Sai is the name in Chiang Mai of a certain type of khao soi that is more common in Chiang Rai province, in the area along the border with Burma and Laos (Mae Sai is a border town in Chiang Rai province). It is a spicy soup-like dish, similar to the broth used in khanom chin nam ngiao, containing soft, wide rice noodles, pork ribs, congealed pork blood, and minced pork. Tomatoes and fermented soy bean give it its specific taste. Sliced raw cabbage and bean sprouts are served on the side.

As the lone Thai restaurant in the region, it's nice to have it as an option and the food is done pretty well. Great dumplings and the curry is awesome for cold nights The pad Thai is a little more saucey than what I've had before but overall four stars on the food. Word to the wise, make sure to be conservative on the spice scale. My ding of a star for the place is based on take out and the owner. Take out seems to be a real sore spot for the owner. 2 of the five times we've called over for takeout we've actually gotten takeout and the other times they've indicated that they're to busy. Fair enough. It would be helpful to state a take out policy online or on their voice mail during peak season. Having mixed messages from the staff on takeout just irritates the owner and customer. Maybe also not offer full menu at the bar as it gives the wrong impression that it's a dinner service. I'm sure the owner would prefer the bar being open for drinkers than having it clogged up with people eating. Overall a good place, but call ahead for reservations as their popularity has grown. It also reduces the chances of irritating the owner and leaving local customer feeling unwelcome. Three stars. Pandan Leaf Jelly with Milk
We are giving To B Thai three starts because the actually delivery was a bit of a fail. The bag came soaked in curry sauce and ripped open and made a huge mess. I recommend they use a better container in order to avoid this. We lost about 40% of our curry and had a lot of clean up to do. All our food was covered in curry. We also requested no utensils and got the full work up. Mango Tree, Thai Restaurant London serving Authentic Thai Cuisine or Thai Food

Thai cooking places emphasis on lightly prepared dishes with strong aromatic components and a spicy edge. Thai chef McDang characterises Thai food as demonstrating "intricacy; attention to detail; texture; color; taste; and the use of ingredients with medicinal benefits, as well as good flavor", as well as care being given to the food's appearance, smell and context. Australian chef David Thompson, an expert on Thai food, observes that unlike many other cuisines, Thai cooking rejects simplicity and is about "the juggling of disparate elements to create a harmonious finish".

After that Thanksgiving dinner I didn't think my appetite would be returning anytime soon but here we are on a Saturday evening, 5 pm and Marisol and I were suddenly ready to eat... In one of those unusual moods where we don't know what we want, one of our regular places or something new, something simple or upscale, traditional american grub or foreign cuisine... we decided to stay local and we don't have much in the way of local (as in very close to our home). Rise is down the road and a delicious option (and at times very busy) but instead decided on Rise's old location at the Village Tower Shoppes. I know the place gets busy because it's next door to the yogurt shop we frequent but we were early so the place was expected to be quiet but still had half the tables taken. One of the waitresses welcomed us and let us pick a table. The interior is comfortable and kinda cute, modern but still utilizing asian style. The menu board highlighting the specials of the day were done in various colors of chalk (kinda reminding me of Sakaya Kitchen in Miami). The tables were finished with a rough edge to give them a good look and the mural on the wall is an impressive touch. We started with a couple sushi rolls... based on pictures I had seen posted on yelp, I expected better presentation (as most of the sushi dishes had colorful/cut fruit/veggies as garnish and many event had a flower but ours was simply our sushi; no presentation to impress). We had a SPICY TUNA ROLL which surprised me to only include 6 pieces but were good. Also shared a RAINBOW ROLL; the fish tasted very fresh. Even though taste was great and the freshness of the fish was excellent, I thought the rice was a bit loose (but not falling apart). My girl had a bowl of RAMEN with chicken... excellent broth and definitely a heart dish with noodles, chicken and veggies. I had a PAD THAI with shrimp (menu says prawn and I ordered prawns, but the waitress repeated back shrimp which I found to be funny; even though they taste the same, I wonder if she knows shrimp and prawns are different). My Pad Thai was excellent and not overly sweet. While we were eating our main dishes the restaurant filled up with customers... We finished our dishes while the table next to us were still eating their entrees... We sat very patiently for our waitress to return so we could have a to-go box and our check... The table next to us finally caught up and finished their dishes; while we still sat waiting for our waitress... They received their check from their waitress. I gestured with my hand for their waitress but she continued walking right past me. Confused, my Marisol and I just looked at each other dumbfounded. The other table has paid their bill and left and our waitress is still missing in action. Another family wanted the empty table so (2) waitresses began to clean the table together and at this point I'm annoyed/frustrated, so I gesture again and I say excuse me to clearly see and hear us... the waitress from earlier doesn't even acknowledge me and says something to the other girl. The other girl waves "hello" at me.... I know she was young but really?!?!?! After more than 20 minutes, Marisol gets up to go to our waitress who was only concentrating on tables at the other end of the restaurant. She says sorry but I'm done at this point... I just want to pay and go. Good food but disappointing service. Thai Food What???
Here’s the thing: There is just no way to make pad thai without all the necessary ingredients, and many restaurants hope you don’t catch them skimping on the pickled radish, bean sprouts, dried shrimp, Chinese garlic chives and crushed peanuts. No shortcuts allowed. If you see carrots or peppers in your noodles, toss them to the side in protest. In Thailand, some prefer to use vermicelli instead of the regular pad thai noodles. Sometimes pad thai is served wrapped in a thin egg crepe, but it’s always served with traditional Thai condiments. Lemongrass Chicken Recipe Video by YumYum

Recently returned from a trip to Thailand and can genuinely say this food tastes very authentic. Our waitress was very sweet, and the atmosphere was cozy. My only complaint was that I wasn't wild about the Thai Me Up cocktail special, so it was a big bummer since that was $10 and I didn't end up drinking any of it. The beers were good though, and the food was solid! Would recommend!

Morsels of fresh chicken. Cherry-sized eggplants. Tender bamboo shoots. Sprigs of Coriander. Generous handfuls of sweet basil. These humble elements form the body of this seminal curry. But how does it get so gloriously green you ask? Oh, that'll be the spoons of green curry paste that's stirred furiously into hot creamy coconut milk. Served alongside a bowl of fragrant Thai rice, Gaeng Keow Kan Gai is the extreme opposite.
