A great, world-conquering day. I need one day like that every month and all would be well.
I've had two different cow-orkers goading me to to to TThai, so the Dear Wife and I finally went last night.
I was looking forward to it, since I've had some excellent salad rolls at Star of Siam (not recently!) and excellent pad thai and thai fried frice at the thai place that used to be at the NE corner of Spring Valley and Coit. It's since changed to Noodle Wave or something recently and haven't been back yet).
So I ordered thai fried rice and salad rolls. DW ordered some kind of beef dish. Both were decent but not notable. I tried thai iced tea, and won't make that mistake again. Reminded me of licking a piece of pressure-treated lumber. The DW thought I was joking when I said it tasted like a patio deck. Until she tried it.
Two entrees, two drinks, one appetizer: $28.36 before tip.
Pros: many locals, BYOB, pleasant atmosphere, pleasant service and friendly (presumably thai) staff. Cons: Kind of a crummy part of town. Food decent but not great. Verdict: Not worth the hype, not worth the drive. I don't see us going back.
Located just off LBJ over near BoBo China (mentioned more for its sign visibility than culinary excellence).
