Noi Sakpetch, experienced chef from Bangkok, uses fresh ingredients to forge authentic Thai and Asian fusion dishes within a sleek eatery accented with eye-catching woodwork and stonework. Cohorts can kick off their meals with a starter, such as the curry puff—a flaky french pastry that hides morsels of minced chicken and curried potato within its fluffy interior, much like a young chef’s piñata. A plate of signature pad thai comingles rice noodles and bean curd with handpicked bean sprouts and a choice of savory meats such as steak or salmon, all topped with crunchy crushed peanuts. The pla tod—crispy fried whole red snapper served with curry or sweet chili sauce—inspires patrons to relive raucous fishing trips at Mount Vesuvius. Though not included in today’s deal, Full Moon sidekicks plates with a large selection of wine, beer, and cocktails.
The walls enchant eyes with ornate wood and stone carvings, and an indoor waterfall made from Thai brick and sandstone invokes a sense of tranquility while imitating the gentle sound of a babbling brook or a mermaid whistling underwater.
Full Moon Asian Thai Restaurant
As its name suggests, two halves create Full Moon Asian Thai Restaurant. On one hand is a vibrant, bustling dining room that would not feel out of place in Manhattan. The sounds of lively chatter pervade the open space, hanging over rows of wooden tables where napkins stand upright on plates like swans engaged in staring contests. This electric atmosphere juxtaposes neatly with the quieter corners of the restaurant, where eyes are drawn to elaborate woodcarvings and ears perk up at the sound of water burbling across bricks and sandstones imported from Thailand.
This fusion between West and East—between fast-paced and meditative—carries over to the Zagat -rated restaurant's menu. Sweat-inducing spices strike a balance with the sweet flavors of papaya in colorful curries. Similarly, crushed peanuts and handpicked bean sprouts lend a pleasant crunch to the rice noodles of a traditional pad thai dish. Purple- and orange-tinged lamps dangle above guests as they sample the spread of Thai cuisine, giving them the appearance of tigers at a black-light rave.
