After 10 years in the San Francisco Bay Area, the family chefs of Thai Palms bring their culinary craftsmanship to Fresno, blending traditional and modern recipes into a menu of edible artistry. Silence bellies’ grumbling gossip with an appetizer such as Thai rolls, golden fried rice rolls snuggling chicken, prawns, and a piquant blend of herbs and spices ($8.50). Diners seeking classic fare may twine fork tines into pad thai, pan-fried rice noodles aromatically accessorized with egg, bean sprouts, tofu, and crushed peanuts ($9.50–$12). Herb-seasoned, chili-sauced barbecue beef sates ravenous pit masters ($10), and spicy platters such as the red curry, sporting bamboo shoots, peas, pepper, and basil leaves, provide tastier heat than a cinnamon-coated campfire ($9–$11.50).
Sweet basil, chili sauces, and ginger cast their scents throughout the dining room at Thai Palms, providing an olfactory glimpse of the intricately spiced menu. The curries range from mild yellow broth to spicy green varieties. Bamboo-skewered morsels of chicken, beef, and prawns line the grill tops, and rolls of fried rice paper surround cores of herb-accessorized proteins.
