The cozy, family-run eatery whisks diners away on an epicurean adventure through Thailand’s bustling street markets, verdant rice fields, and vast rivers of curry. The multifarious menu includes a covey of coconut-infused curries—available in red, green, and Penang incarnations—in addition to lip-smacking stir-fries and tasty Thai noodle dishes such as the broccoli-bedecked rard-nar topped with a choice of meat ($7.95–$10.95). Treat well-behaving taste buds to one of Thai Original BBQ’s house specials, such as the crispy duck dinner ($9.95) glazed with a zesty orange sauce. Soothe grumbling tummies with crunchy bites of Thai egg rolls ($5.95), or indulge in grilled nibbles of naked shrimp ($7.95) instead of a Speedo-clad lobster. Soup slurpers can sink their spoons in tom yum, a chili- and lemongrass-garnished goulash fortified with chicken ($8.95) or shrimp ($9.95).
Diners of the herbaceous persuasion can also revel in myriad meatless offerings while relaxing amid the serene, crimson-hued atmosphere. The vegetable supreme boasts a colorful medley of carrots, tomatoes, and bean sprouts ($7.50), and vegetable egg rolls ($4.95) pack a crunch that’s tastier than a petrified tree. Most stir-fry, noodle, and curry dishes are available with tofu.
