Sy Thai Restaurant Review

: We've never found anyone who asked for the top-of-the-line spice level at Sy Thai, which opened in 1930. Surely their tongue would be singed. We like hot and spicy, but can only tolerate the mild rating here (or an occasional foray into medium territory). Begin with the satay, shrimp chips or tod mun with cucumber sauce before slurping up tom yum soup. Pad see ew, thick with rice noodles, broccoli and egg, is a favorite, as is pad prik and red curried gang gai. There’s a nice selection of duck and seafood options. All of the dishes can be ordered with chicken, beef or pork in addition to shrimp or scallops. You also might want to try the chicken drunken noodle with sweet bell peppers, bean sprouts, eggs and green onions in sweet brandy sauce. Desserts are house-made coconut ice cream and steamed bananas and sticky rice wrapped in a banana leaf. A kids' menu has cheese noodles, chicken satay and chicken fried rice. Very sweet Thai iced tea is a tasty and soothing accompaniment, and guava and mango are two interesting juice options to help quench any fire. Fax, call or email for carryout orders.
