Thai noodles combine Thai flavors with the utility of tiny ropes, as demonstrated most frequently when eaters use them to lasso appetizers directly into their mouths. Let noodles prove their full potential with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of cuisine at Thai Village.
On the Michelin Bib Gourmand list for two years in a row for gourmet value, Thai Village furbishes palates with traditional cuisine, including many vegetarian options, enjoyed in the dining room or on the outdoor patio in warmer weather. Past the ornately carved wooden façade of the restaurant, guests spear classics such as pad see ewe, whose soft, wide rice noodles surf a rich egg- and Chinese broccoli-laden sea of sauce ($7.75). Crispy, fried shrimp rolls dive into sweet and sour sauce while bundled in spring roll wrappers, so named for the season in which they fall off their trees ($5.50), and a choice of meat turns spicy tom yum soup into a meal ($5–$8.95). Thai eggplant joins jalapeño, basil, and a choice of meat or tofu to become an eggplant basil entree ($8.95), and thai iced tea floods glasses cooled by tiny glaciers ($2.50).
On the Michelin Bib Gourmand list from 2011–2012 for gourmet value, Thai Village excites palates with traditional Asian cuisine, including many vegetarian options. Behind the restaurant’s carved wooden façade is a bright, exposed-brick dining room with a pressed-tin ceiling and walls speckled with ornately framed art. During warm weather, the restaurant’s outdoor patio allows guests to mingle spicy tastes with no-holds-barred staring contests against the sun.
Definitely give this place a visit. And try the papaya salad.Emil O., Yelp, 10/29/11
