Talesai Restaurant Review

: This menu far exceeds the predictable neighborhood fare found at your typical corner Thai restaurant, and presentations in this style-conscious contemporary environment are often elegant. Consider Pacific calamari with plum sauce, crispy duck twice-cooked with ginger-soy sauce, grilled lamb chops with homemade pickled vegetables, tamarind sea bass, and “Red Devil” pan-fried flat noodles with grilled rib-eye steak, jalapeños and Thai basil. For dessert, order sticky rice with Thai custard and, in season, fresh-sliced mango.
