Eat At Thai is located in a small shopping center and hard to find, and when you walk inside it is very dark, the walls are dark red, the inside has a number of small “rooms” connected together with archways, windows and Thai decorations. This imparts a cozy, quiet ambiance. The night we were there they had a very small staff, but luckily there were not many diners so service was acceptable and very friendly.
Having eaten at many, many Thai restaurants all over the world, I have a wide variety of experiences to compare this restaurant, and I’d say it ranks in the middle of the pack. Good but not exceptional. We started with the cheese roll, sort of a spring roll with cheese, shrimp, and crab served with a sweet & sour sauce that while smallish, were quite tasty. The house salad was also small served with a tiny amount of peanut dressing on the side, but did have chicken and shrimp chunks in it and it seemed very fresh. The Tom Kha soup was very thin and did not have much coconut milk in it, and tasted more like a Tom Yum soup flavored with a drop or two of coconut milk – flavorful but a little disappointing.
The chicken Masaman Curry was very tasty, but again, a very small portion. This is really atypical from most Thai restaurants that usually give you huge portions that could easily serve two people. I guess it is either a sign of the poor economic times or just the owner’s way of trying to save money. The white rice served with it was perfectly cooked and very good, and the overall impact of the dish was delicious. For $9.95 I guess I’d rate it as an average value.
For desert we had fried banana with a scoop of coconut flavored vanilla ice cream, and while the four pieces of banana were (again) tiny, they were delicious. And the ice cream was a very premium creamy vanilla just lightly flavored with coconut – again, very delicious.
Overall, I’d say you should Eat At Thai, but don’t expect to be wowed, just satisfied. And in today’s world, that ain’t bad!
