The vibe is upbeat at this small East Village Thai spot thanks to a bubbly Asian pop soundtrack and the giant tank in back brimming with colorful fish. The menu is pretty standard; choose chicken, pork, seafood, tofu or crispy duck and have it bathed in curry, thrown into noodles or sautéed with things like basil, ginger and scallions. There are a few house specialties as well including a grilled half-chicken marinated in Thai spices and served with sticky rice and crispy duck served in an orange tamarind sauce. Whole fish, either tilapia or a market special, are either fried or steamed and dressed in things like garlic sauce and vegetables. A light crowd comes in before 5pm to take advantage of the lunch special, when a select number of dishes areonly $5.95. The atmosphere is decidedly casual, with laminated menus on each table and a flat-screen TV playing in the corner. Gold-colored Buddha statues and paintings of Buddhist scenes provide additional decoration.—Keith Wagstaff
