Tan Thai serves up savory noodle dishes, authentic Thai entrees, and sweet curries in a relaxing, casual atmosphere. The menu showcases a smorgasbord of seafood specialties, including spicy salmon with basil and red curry ($14.95), as well as hot and spicy scallops, piled atop a mound of bamboo shoots, baby corn, bell peppers, basil, and red-chili sauce ($13.95). Tan Thai allows guests to customize meals with one of six protein choices—tofu, vegetables, pork, chicken, beef, or shrimp—and one of five levels of spiciness, ranging from the relatively mild level one, to the will-testing level five, capable of generating enough mouth heat to melt a harmonica. Personalize a plate of pad thai ($9.95–$11.95) or one of five colorful curries ($10.50–$12.50), such as the green, yellow, and red—inspired by Bangkok traffic patterns. Sip a refreshing thai iced coffee ($2.95) or nibble on a sweet treat of mango sticky rice ($4.95) in Tan Thai's cheery dining room adorned with serene, pale-yellow walls, comfy booth seating, and arched doorways.
