Owner Ma Vue understands Thai cuisine, and it shows. The fare at his US Thai is simple: authentic street and everyday food made by a chef and cooks who also thoroughly understand the techniques and ingredients. The curries are deep and complicated and absolutely addictive; even the simplest fried rice and spring-roll plates are done with style. The dining rooms are small and seating is tight, so you may have to wait -- but you can spend that time watching the cooks in the open kitchen work their magic.
