The chefs at Sang Thai & Vietnamese Restaurant create both classic versions and modern twists on pan-Asian cuisine. Couples and magicians still handcuffed to their assistants begin three-course meals with starters such as tom yum seafood soup or a crisp mound of greens topped with lemongrass chicken, julienned carrots, and peanuts. Appetizers such as pork-stuffed pot stickers or skewered chicken satay and peanut sauce keep fingers busy. While chili-and-pepper squid and other spicy seafood entrees raise taste bud temperatures, heat-averse tongues can enjoy cooler concoctions such as ginger-beef stir-fry and vegetarian pad thai. Asian-themed statuettes and dynamic lighting ornament the dining room in which weekend dinners enjoy live performances. Stephanie Ren delights patrons by playing the gu-zheng, a traditional Asian string instrument, and vigilantly controlling ensuing mosh pits.
Sang Thai Restaurant
Sang Thai Restaurant has garnered local praise for its pan-Asian cuisine; diners even crowned it Favourite Thai Restaurant on the 2012 Tri-City News A LIst. Inside, bright red walls and hanging lamps surround guests as they dine on Thai and Asian specialties, including curry, fried rice, and clay-pot dishes. Wooden pillars divide the sleek, minimalist dining room into two sections. A bar decorated with martini glasses and figurines stands next to a wall of illuminated bamboo that frequently attracts botanists eager to nibble on it.
