Thai food can be sour enough make you pucker up, hot enough to melt ice sculptures of extinct animals, and sweet enough to woo the ghost of Nikola Tesla. Take the rollycoaster ride of Thai's punchy flavors with today’s Groupon, which gets you $20 of Thai cuisine for $10 at Jasmine Thai & Sushi House. Jasmine serves classic Thai dishes, fresh sushi, and vegetarian fare in a bright and bubbly dining room.
Start your appetite's engine with crispy, chicken-stuffed spring rolls (three for $4.50) or Loog Chin Ping (eight for $5.75), which reinvents the meatball by grilling it and serving it on skewers with peanut sauce. The coconut soup ($4.50 cup, $8.95 bowl) is a Jasmine specialty. Curries are central to the menu of carefully prepared Thai favorites. Try shrimp green curry ($10.95) or pineapple chicken in red curry ($9.25). To venture beyond the curry boundaries, sup on a wok-fried dish such as mango chicken (lean and tender chicken betrothed to tangy mango, $9.50). Moo Tod ($9.95) consists of six pieces of pork tender enough to serve as pillows for gnomes, if dozing gnomes didn't mind being marinated in garlic-pepper sauce.
Jasmine also offers a full vegetarian menu in addition to the sushi menu, which is stuffed with some of Albuquerque’s freshest maki, nigiri, sashimi, and vegetable rolls. Dig into the spicy tuna roll ($5.95 for eight pieces) or bright and fresh salmon nigiri (two pieces for $4.50) that pops in front of Jasmine's brightly colored, cheerful walls. The dining room is decorated with framed flower paintings on the walls, delicate silk flowers on the tables, and upside-down painted umbrellas on the ceiling to ensure your eyes won’t get jealous of your taste buds' good times and hatch plots for revenge that result in tiny after-dinner explosions.
- High expectations are in order when a restaurant has a name like Jasmine Thai. Diners might expect that the restaurant be pleasing to the eye and that aromas emanating from the kitchen titillate the olfactory senses. This restaurant does not disappoint in either count. – Gil Garduno
- This is one of the best restaurants in town. Seriously good curry, pad thai, and soups. – Nate, Urbanspoon
- Other than the consistent good food & great service, we love the warm atmosphere of this restaurant. Prices are also reasonable (for both Thai food & sushi). – Private Member, Dining Guide
- …a piping hot bowl of coconut milk soup with a veggie tempura roll always hits the right spot. Pad Thai is a sure fire win and the Thai Tea is awesome! – cody, Google Maps
