Part of the Blue Spice Restaurant's network of Thai eateries, Delmar Blue Spice surrounds visitors with the scents of curry, fresh mango and pineapple, and thai basil. Inside, right next to the windows and a few big pots of broad-leafed tropical plants, there's a dining area filled with the clatter of silverware tearing into noodles, curries, and seafood. The menu brims with green-papaya salad, salmon in panang curry, jasmine rice, and pork and shrimp dumplings, all of it shredded, grilled, fried, steamed, or karate-chopped to perfection.

The chefs at Bangkok Bistro not only prepare dishes, such as pad thai and a rainbow of curries, they also plate up roll after roll of inventive sushi creations. The Schenectady roll marries crab, spicy tuna, and baked salmon with fried onion, eel sauce, and spicy mayo, whereas the Facebook roll showcases crab, cream cheese, asparagus, and roe. Bento boxes come neatly packed with appetizers, teriyakis, and salads and platters of fried rice come spiked with ingredients such as pineapple or basil leaves.

Determined to introduce the public’s collective palate to creative Asian-inspired food, the cooks at Noodles prepare their namesake dish following both traditional Thai recipes and their own unique formulas. They craft a multitude of soups ranging from the classic udon noodle soup to the unconventional nava noodle soup, which combines seafood, minced chicken, fish balls, fish cake, and crushed peanuts in a spicy lime broth.

Customers shouldn’t let the name fool them, though—the culinary team has more than noodles and broths in their wheelhouse. They also prepare six meat-based rice bowls and 10 salads that combine ingredients such as steamed shrimp, mint, crushed peanut, and carrots. The chefs also have their own specialties, including shrimp and tofu curry and Duck in Red—roasted duck simmered in panang-curry sauce and topped with string beans, bell peppers, and herbs. This is not to be confused with Duck in White—a female duck on her wedding day.

Thai Place infuses authentic Thai dishes with locally sourced ingredients for a mélange of more than 100 traditional and contemporary Southeast Asian dishes. Though some may view Thai food as merely spicy, the recipes at Thai Place run the gamut from the loving, noodly arms of a sweet pad thai ($6.50/lunch, $7.50/dinner) to the tangy gastronomic fireworks of hot-basil calamari ($9.95). Wrap your mouth around Bangkok beef, an eastern barbecue amalgamate of soybean sauce and sirloin ($9.50), or ponder the savory mysteries of a hypnotic yellow curry ($6.50/lunch, $9.50/dinner).

When the owners of V. Thai remodeled the restaurant?s interior, complete with a show-stopping chandelier, they also tackled the menu.

The chefs whip up both Vietnamese and Thai specialty dishes, including caramel-saut?ed fish and the Sizzling Ocean Plate, which serves up the oceans bounty?everything from scallops to squid to sunken treasure?on a sizzling hot plate.

Thai Hut's chefs ignite taste buds with a menu of traditional Thai fare, spicing seafood, duck, and beef with zesty sauces in a choice of four heat levels. Couples can warm up their palates on an appetizer of chicken satay paired with peanut sauce or the Money Bag, deep-fried parcels of prawn, chicken, corn, and peas used to pay off grumbling tummies. A pair of Thai Hut salads clears out leftover flavors with crispy vegetables and a delectable dressing of peanut sauce. A broad array of entrees encourages diners to select the ingredients and spice levels in any dish, such as letting fans of thai basil mix the dish’s eponymous herb, green beans, and bell peppers with a choice of seafood, chicken, beef, or duck. A plate of pad thai hides eggs, peanuts, and bean sprouts in a labyrinth of fried noodles, and spicy red or green curry tempers tongue-tingling heat with cool notes of coconut milk, bamboo shoots, and scales from Rhapsody in Blue. Ornate touches, such as tablecloths zigzagged with intricate patterns, bright flowers, and a rich wood bar, make for an elegant atmosphere in the dining room.
