THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Neisha Thai Cuisine Restaurant Review

: Named after the owner’s daughter, this Thai restaurant is meant to sparkle like a jewel---that’s the idea of the cavelike interior in glinting jewel-like colors. The food is also meant to shine, but we were disappointed. The menu does not include many of the better-known Thai dishes and most we sampled were overly sweet; the cook would do well to cut the sugar by half. The best choices here include the fried tofu appetizer and the crispy soft-shell crabs, which come two to an order. The pineapple fried rice served in a hollowed-out pineapple half looks glamorous but seems more Cantonese than Thai. Although not centrally located, it’s become a popular place and packs in a hungry lunch crowd of young professionals.
