Sure, the name and location—a small strip center just outside Loop 410—are generic, but the cooking at this intimate family-owned restaurant is anything but. Many of Thailand’s most famous dishes are prepared here with great care and with fresh ingredients: pad thai (not too sweet, noodles cooked to the perfect texture, crunchy bean sprouts), pad kra pao (generous with the basil leaves), and panang curry (nicely scented, with just the right hint of lime and shrimp paste). The fried tofu appetizer comes with a delicious peanut and cilantro dipping sauce, while yum nua, a cold beef salad with fresh butter lettuce, red onion, tomato, and cucumber, has a light, tangy citrus dressing. Attentive service, low prices, and a quiet dining room (at least until 9pm, when music from the bar next door begins to seep through the wall) also make this an attractive choice.
