Like lava, curry is a brightly colored liquid capable of warming palates and delighting volcanologists. Dine on viscous victuals with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Thai fare from Chaba Thai Cuisine in Scarborough.

Co-owner and chef Lawan Seelawongsayree combines family recipes, experience working with acclaimed chefs, and a personal philosophy of “sanuk”—that all things should be fun and pleasurable—to create distinctive Thai dishes made from fresh ingredients. Specialty curry and noodle dishes include Wild Wild Wild curry ($9.95–$11.95), a spicy combination of red chili paste, vegetables, basil, and lime leaf, and traditional pad thai ($9.95–$11.95). Adventurous eaters can explore inventive entrees including crispy tamarind duck ($15.95) and salmon choo ahee ($13.95), a breed of salmon that swims upriver to reach curry, pineapple, and basil spawning beds. Take advantage of lunch specials such as pad kee mow or red curry ($8.95–$10.95), each paired with a choice of two sides such as Thai egg rolls, tofu vegetable soup, or chicken wings.

Chaba Thai Cuisine & Sushi

A bachelor’s degree in international language has lent Chaba Thai Cuisine & Sushi's owner, Lawan Seelawongsayree, an advanced understanding of human communication. However, at her restaurant—which she opened in 2004 and where she perpetuates family recipes passed through generations—Lawan speaks to her customers through her cuisine: a language primal yet international and sophisticated all at the same time.

Spicy, sweet, bitter, and citrusy flavors collide in dishes that hold true to Thai tradition while playfully thumbing their noses at stodgy conventions such as chewing. Curry dishes marry sweet coconut milk with spicy red-chili paste, a combination sewn with coriander and cumin threads in the massaman version. With every guest’s meal, Lawan aspires for a dining experience rich with sanuk, a term that denotes fun and pleasure at the table without forcing guests to sculpt mashed potatoes into Bobcat Goldthwait.
