Pad Thai is so named because of its inherent softness, which is also why it's used to stuff the mattresses of the world's richest kings. Fall into a pillow of flavor with today's Groupon to The Queen & I Thai Restaurant. Choose between two options:
- For $20, you get $40 worth of Thai fare during dinner.
- For $7, you get $15 worth of Thai fare during lunch.
Owner Bryan Chant, former partner in the popular downtown endeavor The King & I, enchants palates with authentic, taste bud-tantalizing Thai cuisine. Gather with buddies, beaus, or an esteemed badminton rival and perch at a table in the dining room, saturated with soft lighting and surrounded by elegant Asian décor. For lunch, salivating thrill seekers can polish off a piquant plate of the yellow curry, proteinized with a potent panoply of either meat, chicken, tofu, or seafood ($7.95–$10.95).
Dinner denizens, meanwhile, can relax after a long day dredging a retention pond for childhood stuffed animals by dipping into the duck jacuzzi, a crispy duck decorated with a dazzling diadem of pineapple, lychee, and panang curry sauce ($16.95). Or sample the salty deep with the sizzling seafood, a marine feast of lobster tail, shrimp, squids, mussels, scallops, with basil sauce served over mixed vegetables ($18.95).
Similar to Beethoven music played in a chocolate fountain during concert finales, guests can end on a sweet note with an exotic confection, such as a thai donut ($3.95) or sticky rice with mango ($3.95). Spectacle seekers can stop in Friday or Saturday night and indulge in a sensory feast of live Thai dancing performances.
The Queen and I Restaurant
A combination of savory, sweet, and spicy aromas greets diners when they enter The Queen and I Restaurant, serving as an aromatic prelude to the menu's extensive selection of fragrantly seasoned cuisine. The cooks can stir-fry chicken, pork, or scallops and moonlight-ripened vegetables in a number of sauces, imbuing their entrees with flavors of ginger, basil, or fiery chili paste.
Featuring taupe-hued walls and white tablecloths, the dining room has walls with framed artwork and a painted mural of Thai statues that lend a more authentic trans-Pacific feel than a flipbook made entirely of travel brochures.
