Singha II Thai Bistro’s chefs chop basil, sprinkle cashews, and simmer curries to construct a variety of traditional Thai entrees and signature dishes. Diners can unwind after a long day of chasing spot-billed pelicans out of their bedrooms with a succulent appetizer, from steamed thai dumplings ($5.99) to marinated strips of tender chicken satay ($5.99). The bistro tempts seafood-yearning stomachs with spicy catfish, buffeted by zucchini, bell peppers, and pineapple ($12.95). Chicken is swathed in a sweet-and-spicy sauce with the bangkok chicken ($10.95). A sautéed red-curry duck ($16.95) competes for stomach residency with wok dishes crafted from ingredients such as thai eggplant or cashew nuts and served over a choice of chicken, pork, vegetable or tofu ($9.95 for dinner, $5.99 for lunch).
Singha II Thai Bistro
Though the low-lit amber tones of its dining room create a darkly romantic atmosphere, Singha II Thai Bistro has nothing to hide. In a surprisingly gutsy move, the owners opened a message board on the bistro's website and gave diners free reign to speak their minds. The resulting forum crackles with tips (the chefs keep a stockpile of habanero peppers if you like your curry spicy), recommendations (Mike is a fan of the shrimp with cilantro sauce), and a panoply of plaudits (including "best thai food in nc"). Though the authentic Thai menu features a handful of signature dishes, you probably won't go wrong with the roasted duck basil. The boneless crispy fowl flavored with garlic, chilis, and fresh basil leaves seems to be a real crowd-pleaser.
