In the aquamarine pool of paint of at the center of Thai Lagoon's circular sign, red and yellow koi swim in circles, forming, in essence, the shape of a yin and yang symbol. The symbol describes interplay and balance between two opposite forces, such as light and dark or salty and sweet.
Thai Lagoon's chefs seek this balance in their dishes, both in terms of texture and taste. In the crispy rice namsod, savory chicken and peanuts harmonize sweet flashes of ginger; in mussaman curry, soft chunks of meat and potatoes reside amidst crispy bell peppers. In beef broccoli, a velvety sauce offsets the crunch of fresh broccoli crowns.
