Thai 2 Go’s chefs draw on traditional and modern influences to concoct their own recipes for noodle dishes, curries, and sizzling stir-fries. Aromatic basil leaves, spicy chilis, and coconut milk season dishes such as pad thai and panang curry. No matter what you order, expect leftovers—even sturdy chopsticks begin to resemble toothpicks when considered beside the huge, family-size portions.

Chestnut Hill’s Thai Kuu is where to head for traditional Thai cooking with a modern twist in Philadelphia. The sleek atmosphere sets the stage; walls and leather chairs are cream colored and subtle, while vibrant lights and stand-out orange napkins make the room pop. A sheer drapery separates the smallish space, converting the large room into several smaller sections. Pad Thai and curries are favorites, as well as the spicy pad kee mao, consisting of stir-fried rice noodles, spicy sweet basil sauce, vegetables and your choice of meat. Chef’s recommendations include pad pong karee seafood, a mild yellow curry packed with seafood (crab meat, scallops, shrimp, calamari and mussels) or garlic soft-shell crabs.

While scanning the pages of Nooddi Thai Chef's eclectic and lengthy menu amid the eatery's oceanic murals, eyes are forced to stop at words that stand out against the traditional "dumpling," "curry," and "satay." The kitchen staff's specialties cause these double takes on a daily basis, as they introduce eccentric proteins such as wild boar in a garlic red curry sauce or sautéed alligator in an aromatic herb sauce. In addition to their Thai classics, the cooks assemble flavors from across Asia, including those in Vietnamese pho, Japanese yakisoba, and Indonesian mee goreng.

Penang's menu stamps tongue passports with authentic, spicy Malaysian dishes. Start with the customer-favorite roti-canai appetizer, hot indian pancakes in curry-chicken sauce ($3.95). The Penang satay serves four skewers of tender, marinated chicken or beef with peanut sauce ($7.50), and the mango chicken ignites mouths with a spicy sauce prepared by chefs raised from infancy on a strict diet of only mangos ($13.95). The curry dishes at Penang offer a refreshing take on this standard Asian spice—more subtle than Indian curries, heartier than Thai versions, and more existent than German recipes. Try the kari ayam, dark-meat chicken and potatoes with red curry in coconut-milk gravy ($12.95).
