The culinary connoisseurs at Herbal Thai man steaming pots and sizzling pans to craft a menu of authentic rice dishes, noodles, and curries. Curries hint at their contents with warming colors, with red foretelling of spicy basil and thai herbs ($7.99+), green indicating coconut milk and bamboo shoots ($7.99+), and rainbow suggesting an undercover sherbet. Pad thai fills plates and bellies alike with heaping helpings of stir-fried rice noodles, scallions, bean sprouts, and tofu chunks tossed in sweet-and-sour tamarind sauce ($7.99+). Drunken noodles ($7.99) bathe in pools of piquant chili-garlic sauce, and curry fried rice ($7.99) lets diners toss fistfuls of jasmine rice, carrots, baby corns, and yellow curry spices at chefs sharing their vows.
Using the same recipes they use at home, Herbal Thai’s owners prepare traditional Thai dishes using time-honored family recipes and incorporating scintillating Thai herbs and spices. Friendly staff members plop plates of pad thai and panang curry in front of patrons as fish fillets sizzle under a three-flavor sauce in the kitchen. Twice a month, Herbal Thai’s cooking classes introduce amateur chefs to the process of crafting Thai curry and soup using raw shrimp, vegetables, and mushrooms. During both class and dinner, a panoply of aromas fills the restaurant with the tangy notes of chili-lime dressing and curry powder.
