In the tradition of authentic Thai cooking, the chefs at Sri Thai blend sweet, spicy, and sour flavors in careful proportions to bring out the essence of each dish—efforts not overlooked by food reviewer Kristin Mastre of Feasting Fort Collins, who awarded it four out of four stars. Both the lunch and dinner menus wax lengthy, listing curries with coconut milk and peanuts as well as fried rice and noodle dishes. A vast selection of dishes is also available gluten-free or vegetarian, and the entire menu is MSG-free, a particular boon to vowel appreciators.
Much like its siblings Thai Kitchens 1 and 2, Thai Kitchen 3 can be identified by the distinctive aroma of sizzling garlic and fresh basil that wafts out through its door. In the kitchen, chefs fold fresh seafood, meats, and vegetables into savory curries, nutty noodle dishes, and fiery stir-fries. All meals are made by adhering to time-honored traditional Thai recipes, which favor spicy chili peppers, creamy coconut milk, and tangy ginger root. Servers bring plates of noodles and bowls of soup into the dining room, where guests await their meals as they sip on Thai iced coffee in cushy booths amid warm red and yellow walls. Other diners sit perched on tall red bar stools as they order a cocktail or demonstrate how many times they can twirl around in a circle without even getting dizzy.
Though their backgrounds may differ, Green Leaf Massage Center's certified therapists share a passion for improving their clients’ health and wellness through massage. The owner sets a sterling example for her staff to follow, routinely attending continuing-education classes to bolster her therapy skills.
Inside private treatment rooms, the therapists rely on 100% organic lotions to bolster the effectiveness of sports, hot-stone, relaxation, therapeutic, and deep-tissue massages. Aromatherapy add-ons further awaken the senses with the comforting scents of tangerine, lemongrass, sandalwood, and homemade fried chicken.
Tuk Tuk Thai Bistro offers popular Thai favorites as well as more unexpected dishes. For instance: the Saochingcha, an eggplant dish with coconut shrimp, mussels, and squid. Along with this bistro location, Tuk Tuk also adapts its food to a fast-food atmosphere at Tuk Tuk Thai Wraps.
Celebrating seven years of service and flaunting freshly painted walls, Saigon Landing Restaurant reopened last year in Greenwood Village with its menu of fresh, heart-healthy Vietnamese cuisine intact. At the Greenwood Village location, an eclectic range of Eastern flavors abound, with lemongrass and curry anchoring plates piled with pork, chicken, seafood, or veggies. Outside, an American flag billows over a grassy border lined with vibrant foliage, fir trees, and a friendly giant tasked with blowing away approaching storm clouds. The Greenwood Village location is close to the United Artists/Regal movie theater off of East Arapahoe Road and I-25.
Wild Bangkok's team of chefs employs award-winning expertise gleaned from multiple continents to fashion a menu that offers authentic Thai fare made with healthy, organic, and locally derived ingredients. A full bar shines behind the marigold- and purple-hued dining space, with barkeeps standing by to uncap beers or pour, shake, and stir a variety of classic cocktails. The dining area's shoulder-stimulating booths accommodate both romantic dinners and group outings.
