The delicate silk hangings and handmade wood accents at Bangkok Village effervesce with authentic Thai ambiance alongside an extensive menu of vegetarian and meat dishes. A sautéed slice of spicy chicken, beef, or pork sporting a basil overcoat struts across sweet bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, and hot peppers($9.99); cashew chicken shows its sweeter side with peanuts, pineapple, and sweet pepper ($9.99). In the Star Delight, a mélange of snow peas, carrots, cabbage, broccoli, and fresh bean sprouts lure herbivores with a homemade sauce and whispered promises of birthday pony rides ($8.99). Lightly seasoned bean-thread noodles wrap around your choice of protein or tofu ($9.99), shrimp ($11.99), or seafood ($11.99) in the Transparent Delight, which features a medley of stir-fried baby corn, bean sprouts, peapods, mushrooms, onions, sweet pepper, and egg.
There must have been considerable coordination between the head chef and interior decorator at Montri Thai; the walls vary in color from red and green to lemon yellow––a fitting homage to the kitchen's use of red, green, and yellow curries in its traditional Thai recipes. Artistic plating of braided noodles garnished with wisps of green chives parallels the dining room's floral bouquets, and intricate sauce designs succeed in making the plates hungry for themselves. A full wall of floor-to-ceiling windows and blue neon lights illuminate the bright ginger and orange notes in beef, chicken, and tofu dishes. An elephant motif drives the sophisticated Eastern vibe home with bronze statues, framed photographs, and loud stomps resonating from the peanut room.
On cold winter days, it’s not uncommon for the windows of Thai Pot dining room to fog up. The cheerful interior keeps warm with the steam rising from simmering tom yum soups, sizzling stir-fried noodles, and cups of hot tea. Soft lights shine down on the ruddy faces of diners, who dig into fiery red and green curries, chock full of pork, beef, and shrimp. Others twirl forks in mounds of noodles speckled with fresh vegetables and flavorful herbs. An accommodating wait staff stands by to refill water glasses and jot down orders, taking note of special culinary preferences, such as a fondness for extra spice or a desire to have regular bell peppers swapped out for bell peppers made of solid gold.
The Thai Medallion team doesn’t mess around when it comes to Thai cuisine. In fact, at Thai Medallion, diners can enjoy a range of traditional Thai-style dishes made from the owner's mother's own recipes. And to make the experience even more authentic, chefs blast curry dishes with handmade curry powder and grow pad thai noodles in the kitchens built-in greenhouse.
