A cocoon of comfort - even elegance -hidden in a Chesterfield strip mall. The menu at Addie's Thai House generally hews to the template of St. Louis-area Thai restaurants, but it's worth veering off course to try one of the house specialties - like gang kua ped yang, an incredible red curry with duck breast, or soft-shell crab pan-fried in a garlic-pepper sauce. If the other dishes are conventional, they are no less outstanding, especially the assertive green curry. Without question, one of St. Louis' best Thai restaurants.
With its origins strongly rooted in St. Louis' former top-flight Japanese restaurant, Robata, Ariake Japanese Steakhouse combines a teppanyaki steak house, where your meal is cooked at your table, with a full sushi bar and a Thai restaurant. While the Japanese menu focuses mostly on the various meats and seafood that will be sizzled right where you sit, such as their filet mignon or lobster, the Thai side turns its culinary attention more toward the sauces and curries that flavor your dish. In addition to the usual pad Thai and stir-fried items, Ariake's Thai menu includes a crispy catfish and garlic frog legs with a spicy sauce. Their sushi menu offers sashimi, rolled sushi and a variety of specialty rolls.
Asia reflects only a sliver of the titular continent's size and cultural variety. Instead it focuses on those countries many might think of when they hear the phrase "Asian cuisine": China, Japan, Vietnam and Thailand. Sushi is prepared well, though the fish itself is merely good, not outstanding. Entrées lean toward Chinese and Chinese-American dishes like General Tso's chicken; house specialties include Peking duck and an excellent Cornish hen dish. The Cornish hen is one of the few values on a relatively high-priced menu.
The friendly staff and large dining area provide a quick-fix for downtown 9-to-5ers looking for their midday meal. The lunch buffet offers a taste of the popular menu items at an affordable price. The regular menu includes a large variety of Chinese, Thai and Vietnamese choices, including spring rolls, kung pao chicken and curry vegetable tofu.
A welcoming environment for the familiar pleasures of Thai cuisine. The staff is friendly, and the dishes are made with quality ingredients and thoughtful attention to detail. The menu features the expected lineup of curries, stir fries and fried-rice dishes. Gang Mussa-Muhn Nuah curry, with peanuts as well as pineapple chunks and tamarind juice is sweet, tart and delicious. The traditional Tom Kha Gai soup is very good. The menu includes a dozen vegetarian dishes and a weekday lunch special.
This cozy spot in downtown Clayton serves up the usual Thai suspects with flair. Roasted boneless duck breast with red curry is one of the "house specialties" -- crisp skin outside, moist, succulent and meaty inside, with a sauce that provides a nice, not-too-spicy counterbalance to sweet chunks of pineapple and tomato and fresh basil leaves. Thai barbecued chicken is a tasty, mild and b-i-g half a bird. The heat in the salmon in green curry sneaks up on you, unfolding its layers of flavor -- and that's the appeal of a Blue Elephant meal: a harmony of flavors that are simultaneously subtle and complex.
The new venture from restaurateur Zoë Robinson and chef Ny Vongsaly, who have collaborated at I Fratellini and the late Zoë Pan-Asian Café, is the perfect restaurant for its location across the street from Washington University: an inexpensive but stylish noodle restaurant. Vongsaly draws upon the familiar flavors of Southeast Asia - lemon grass, curry, fish sauce - sometimes, as in the excellent beef pho with butternut squash and red curry, in unexpected combinations. The spare ribs and pork spring rolls are dynamite appetizers, and the lemongrass beef over chilled sesame noodles is a standout main course. Delivery available during dinner hours.
Fork & Stix is a hidden gem: a terrific, unique Thai restaurant tucked behind an unassuming storefront on a dead-end side street at the eastern edge of the Delmar Loop. Unlike most Thai eateries here and elsewhere, the menu features dishes from the country’s north. Khao soi is a curry-noodle soup with egg noodles and steak (or chicken) in a deeply, complexly flavorful broth. Add red onion, pickled cabbage and lime juice for one of the best soups you’ll ever taste. Hung lay curry is another standout, a sweet-and-sour pork dish that’s almost certainly unlike from any other curry you’ve tried. Classic Thai favorites such as red and green curries and pad Thai are also available (and excellent).
This cavernous restaurant in the Delmar Loop describes its cuisine as "pioneering Asian fusion." Fans of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai and Vietnamese cuisine will likely describe the dishes as defanged. Few dishes provide much flavor, let alone the vast array of vibrant flavors that any one of the aforementioned cuisines have to offer. Fortunately, Ginger Bistro is located only a short walk or drive from restaurants that serve the genuine article.
House of Thai is a Thai restaurant located in Creve Couer.
A mainstay of South Grand Boulevard's impressive array of ethnic restaurants, the King & I has introduced countless St. Louisans to Thai cuisine. The menu offers several dozen selections, and all your Thai favorites are present: pad thai and other noodle dishes; fried rice; the classic tom yum and tom kha soups. The red and green curries are very good. (As always, hotter is better, but the kitchen will tweak to your preference.) The restaurant is an ideal spot for families looking for a more adventurous destination, with a few crowd-pleasing Chinese dishes and a brief, Western kids' menu.
Situated in a small strip mall in Olivette, Land of Smile serves a large selection of Thai cuisine. The restaurant offers more than a dozen appetizers, including fried tofu, spring rolls and a sampler platter. For the main event, Land of Smile cooks up noodles, sautéed dishes, curry and fried rice, each with a choice of chicken pork or tofu (with an additional charge for beef or seafood options). The restaurant also features beer and specialty cocktails.
