At Yakitori 5 and Thai Food by Naya, a menu of authentic Thai food is accented with homemade sauces and Japanese delicacies. Pad Thai ($9.25 for dinner; $7.25 for lunch) catches chicken, tofu, and egg in a net of rice noodles bedecked with buoys of ground peanuts and fried onions, and the mussaman curry ($9.25 for dinner; $7.25 for lunch) appoints a triumvirate of red curry, potatoes, and cashew nuts to rule over insolent mouths. An array of Japanese meat skewers steps off the grill, including the dinnertime option of tatsua and gyoza ($9.25), a spread of cubed beef surrounded by a roaring crowd of five pot stickers, and a lunchtime plating of two yakitori skewers and three scallops ($6.80). Many meals can be transformed into vegetarian dishes with the aid of tofu, and a serving of stir-fried vegetables brims from the evil jungle dish ($8.25), spiced with the sinful notes of red-curry paste and lemon grass. Diners chow down on their selections in a casual dining room accented in a kaleidoscope of pink and gold décor and guarded by sentient menus.
