Like the plot of a Gilligan’s Island episode, Thai food features lots of ginger, coconuts, and adventure, with a little nuttiness thrown in for good measure. And with this offer, you don’t have to be Thurston Howell III to afford an incredible meal—get $20 of delicious Southeast Asian fare at Thai Time for only $10.
Surrounded by a chic, subdued décor without the garish accents other Asian restaurants find necessary, the food at Thai Time is attractive enough not to need distraction. Instead, the savory/sweet, exotic flavors hold your complete attention, from your first bite to your last. Start with classic hot and sour Tom Yum Goong soup, then dive into spicy green curry, laden with coconut milk, eggplant, bell peppers, string beans, bamboo shoots, snow peas, with kaffir lime and basil leaves, and your choice of protein or tofu. The Kha Prow Duck with spicy garlic sauce, Bangkok Ocean with shrimp, scallops, squid and mussels, and the Rama with pineapple, broccoli, cabbage and peanut sauce are not to be missed, and the signature Drunken Noodles is famous for reasons you’ll taste in every mouthful of shrimp, chicken, rice noodles, veggies and basil. Seal shut your hunger cave with a dessert of fried honey banana or Thai coconut custard.
