A wall of mirrors extends around Kao Tong Modern Thai Restaurant, reflecting images of the eatery's contemporary white chairs and vibrant orange accents. But, despite the immersive visuals, it's the colorful entrees of classic and progressive Thai cuisine that snatch patrons' attention the quickest. Artistically plated meals of chicken pad thai and curries infused with coconut milk satisfy cravings for traditional Thai tastes, and eclectic flavors, such as crispy basil duck and shrimp covered in a spicy panang sauce, arrive elegantly presented with slices of hot peppers and kaffir lime leaves folded into origami swans. Kao Tong’s sweets round out each hearty Thai meal, with thai iced tea and banana with sticky rice adding a sugary denouement to the savory proceedings.
