Natta Thai Restaurant Review

: It's odd to find a Thai restaurant shoehorned into a standing-room-only space once occupied by a barbecue restaurant. We stopped in for lunch to find a modest crowd---after all, there may be only seven tables in all---and decided that the architect was a space wizard at remodeling. Though the menu offers the usual suspects---pad thai, duck curry, and Thai fried rice---some sound interesting. We found the crispy duck salad, though loaded with such non-Thai tidbits as celery, red cabbage and carrots, filled with flavor. The Drunken Noodles, however, needed first aid: Take out the veggies and add Thai basil and chilies. For the 'burbs, this is another contender for the consumers' Thai passions.
