Yes, Siam

Manee Thai brings welcome spice to bland suburbia

Several relatively exotic desserts are offered; when available, the sticky rice with a whole sliced mango is a real treat, the warm rice flavored with coconut cream and sesame seeds and serving as a perfect counterpoint in both appearance and flavor to the bright-orange, delicately sweet mango.

Singha malt liquor is generally the best hard drink to go with Thai food, and for softer drinks, Manee Thai offers excellent renditions of strong Thai iced tea, flavored with sweetened milk or lime. Service reflects the pre-eminent emphasis on hospitality in Thai culture, and both of our meals took less than an hour without being at all rushed.

For a relatively new place, Manee Thai was busy both nights we visited, drawing a good cross-section of sit-down and carryout business. Long-term viability looks good, which bodes well for those who crave alternatives to suburban sameness.
