Siam River Thai & Sushi’s masterful chefs animate years of experience when whipping together authentic Thai eats cataloged on the extensive menu. Blending Chinese and Indian delicacies, a lunch platter of meat and broccoli pad ke mow ($7.95) invites teeth to a flavor fete, and a dinner sampling of the Pirate Boat—brimming with a mixed seafood blend and old-fashioned Thai herbs ($16.95)—tempts even the most placid palates to bellow vociferous encomiums. Sautéed duck with wild basil backstrokes in a pool of chili and hot-pepper waves ($18.95), and colorful Japanese sushi creations, such as the Miami Hurricane roll with crab meat, cooked shrimp, and cream cheese ($7.50), high-five lonely tonsils. Siam River also weighs down plates with curry, noodles, misplaced dumbbells, and rice dishes.
To create their traditional dishes, the chefs at Emerald Thai flavor simmering pots of soup with lemongrass, galangal root, kaffir lime leaf, ginger, garlic, and chili paste (to name only a few of their ingredients). They slather oyster sauce across grilled steak and glaze fried duck with a tangy sweet and sour sauce. They'll even let guests in on the fun, allowing them to customize their own stir-fried dishes by choosing a protein such as tofu, beef, or scallops. The flavorful dishes are served in an elegant dining room cloaked in golden drapes and crimson tablecloths. For an equally luxurious experience, guests can order food online and have meals delivered straight to their throne room.
Asia Bay serves the "best sushi in this town," according to actor Alec Baldwin, who tweeted his recommendation while in Fort Lauderdale to film Rock of Ages, according to pbpulse. The man behind this A-list-worthy cuisine is executive chef and co-owner Peter Hepp, who according to Miami New Times "is hip to the aesthetic of clean lines, vivid colors, and brightly delineated flavors." Hepp's chefs drizzle the menu's more than 60 sushi and sashimi plates with colorful sauces as carefully as painters adorn canvas, yielding dishes that are as nice to look at as they are to eat. The 50-seat dining room operates under a similarly modern theme, with large picture windows, white leather chairs, and curved-back banquettes which Social Miami calls "minimalist-chic."
Outside, a patio held up by stilts lifts diners above the rippling waves of the Tarpon River, helping garner Asia Bay an OpenTable Diners' Choice Award for Best Outdoor Dining. Here the decor invites relaxation with large parasols, old-fashioned street lamps, and seagulls who will give backrubs for fresh-cut sashimi.
Inside Fort Lauderdale reviewed Sukhothai and Zagat rated the food and service "very good to excellent." Seventy-nine percent of more than 220 Urbanspooners recommend the restaurant and Yelpers give it an average of four stars.
