This unassuming Thai restaurant serves up some of the hottest dishes in the Triangle.The Scene
Eleven tables spaced amply allow for private dinner conversation or a comfortable lunch spot during work. The space is casual, yet refined. Framed art posters grace mustard-yellow walls, while a wood parquet floor adds a crisp feel.The Food
Even the salads here are spicy. The green papaya salad is a bevy of julienned papaya, topped with roasted peanuts and chili peppers, in a lime juice and palm sugar dressing that sweetly evens out the peppers' kick. Duck panang comes lightly fried, sliced and slathered in a strong, creamy coconut-curry sauce with carrots and green beans. Chicken red curry is more bamboo shoot than chicken, but fresh basil leaves make a pungent contrast to this dish, one of many marked "hot and spicy" on the menu. Cool off with the "fresh young coconut milk," a refreshing, clear juice with floating pieces of coconut.Insider TipsSave Money
