THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Thai Emerald Restaurant Review

: Exotic art starts outside the entrance and flows through the upper and lower dining areas, sushi bar and wine room of this haven off busy Hwy. 280. The aesthetics continue in the presentation on the plate. Som tum salads make a refreshing light meal, with crispy green papaya topped with either chicken or seafood. Mussaman beef or Emerald curry chicken (grilled chicken curry with eggplant, green beans, basil and bamboo shoots) are more substantial. Basil or garlic grilled lamb are signature selections. The extensive sushi roll list includes a “no raw fish” category for the squeamish. One surprise here is the big-screen TV lowered from the ceiling for sports events---football fans can eat sushi, raw or not, without missing a down. Try the SuperCrunch, a favorite roll. Desserts include a pineapple cake with thin slices of fresh pineapple under creamy frosting. Strawberry cake or coconut ice cream also make delicately sweet finishes to the meal. Alas, the formerly offered Thai wines are now gone, but there’s still a better-than-average selection for an Asian restaurant.
