Say what you like about the glitzy décor (banks of golden temple bells, full-wall color transparencies of street vendors), the menu at this Manhattan Valley spot is solid and serious Thai, making you wonder why a slightly upscale establishment of this sort hasn"t opened in Elmhurst. The noodles are totally on the money, especially a pad woon sen swarming with veggies, including Chinese celery, which can"t be too easy to acquire in these latitudes. (One demerit for using skinless, boneless, soul-less chicken breast.) A very nice curry list includes a couple of surprises. And you can get larb made with ground pork instead of chicken. When the menu says "spicy," it means it.
