Thai food attempts to balance the five fundamental flavors: bitter, sour, sweet, salty, and victory. Score a win for your mouth with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Thai fare at Thai Place in South Hadley.
Thai Place infuses authentic Thai dishes with locally sourced ingredients for a mélange of more than 100 traditional and contemporary Southeast Asian dishes. Though some may view Thai food as merely spicy, the recipes at Thai Place run the gamut from the loving, noodly arms of a sweet pad thai ($6.50/lunch, $7.50/dinner) to the tangy gastronomic fireworks of hot-basil calamari ($9.95). Wrap your mouth around Bangkok beef, an eastern barbecue amalgamate of soybean sauce and sirloin ($9.50), or ponder the savory mysteries of a hypnotic yellow curry ($6.50/lunch, $9.50/dinner).
Trade fork for spoon and tooth for slurp with fluid fare such as the delightful tom yum seafood ($3.50/lunch, $3.95/dinner), or heed the milky call of the coconut-filled tom kha kai ($2.95/lunch, $3.50/dinner). The eating environs at Thai Place are inviting and warm, bolstered by a friendly staff that complements a hearty dinner like yodeling tops off a morning commute. Though Thai Place has four locations, today's Groupon is valid only at the South Hadley location.
