At Lime Leaf Thai Cuisine, husband-and-wife owners David Cheng and Kanas Lam meld a dinner menu of curries, noodles, and rice dishes with Thai and Asian fusion flavors. An appetizer of chicken satay leads off the culinary batting order with sliced chicken breast marinated in barbecue spices and peanut sauce ($6.95). Bowls brim with one of six different curries, such as red curry, gang pa, or panang neur, accompanied by tasty submersibles of pork, chicken, or beef ($10.95). Chefs stir-fry wide egg noodles with garlic, egg, and broccoli in the pad see ew ($14.95 with shrimp), and steaming bowls of pho—rice noodles with beef ($8.95)—arrive at tables with identical cardboard cutouts to fool thieving dinner dates. Loaded with fresh vegetables, dinner dishes pile ingredients such as marinated pork, bell peppers, and scallions atop a bed of legumes ($11.95). Lime Leaf Thai Cuisine serves up portions of its tasty fare at lunch and reserves Friday nights for live music in the chic lounge, which occupies the upper level of a two-story space complete with an onsite wine cellar and a private party room.
