Thai Dishes Restaurant utilizes authentic cuisine to load bellies with a balanced blend of exotic ingredients and spices. Arouse appetites with starters including spicy, deep-fried fish cakes ($6.95) while titillating eyes with one of the eatery’s four LCD TVs. From 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., patrons can climb over midday humps with lunch specials, such as Thai-style barbecue chicken served with steamed rice, fried wontons, and salad ($6.95).
Sink incisors into noodle dishes such as the lard nar—flat rice noodles topped with brown gravy and broccoli ($8.95)—or entrees that include sautéed baby corn in oyster sauce ($8.95), which can help build bulk when laced with a choice of protein ($2) or an experimental growth serum. Those who prefer noodles in their less-easily-twirled-around-a-fork form can fill faces with rice dishes such as crab fried rice ($9.95) and pineapple fried rice infused with piney apples, raisins, cashew nuts, and yellow curry powder ($8.95).
