Chai Thai

by cochrancj

Pan-Asian with a Thai bent in Williamsburg.

What We Had

I had the Chiangmai Noodles – chicken curry northern style with egg noodles — chicken so deeply flavored it almost tasted like pork – fall apart, intense. Fantastic dish – pleasantly spicy, great flavors. Perfectly just underdone noodles.

My DH had the Pad See Ew – Great wok hay, perfectly cooked chicken. A real knockout dish.

Unfortunately, the pictures of these two dishes didn’t turn out. Suffice it to say, they were delicious.

We also had the peanut something dumplings #5 – sweet, peanutty, could have done with a touch more acid, but still good.

Decor

Cool interior – contemporary Asian with great organic flow. Lots of dark woods, organic shapes, and hard-edged decor pieces. A well put together, thoughtful atmosphere.

Also, really interesting upbeat lounge covers through the speakers. According to Yelp, cover music is sort of a big deal here, and it shows.

Service

On the slow side.

Overall Impressions
This is a great spot for a quiet weeknight dinner and would make a good place to dine with friends. the menu is inventive, the music is a conversation piece, and the decor is cool without being obtrusive. The prices are also surprisingly reasonable and the portions are generous.

Rating

4 out of 5 for PFG food. This spot was a great find.
