Side St. & Sushi Bar by I-Thai Restaurant Review: With a somewhat glamorous setting for a Thai place, this Tysons restaurant has much going for it. A sparkling buffet seems to offer just about all the Thai favorites, and many more authentic dishes as well. But your best bet is to go to the menu, where the kitchen has assembled such dishes as crispy beef and fish cakes appetizers, crying tiger and crispy flounder chef’s specials, and roasted duck curry or massaman curry, among others. A section called “Traditional Thai” features crispy duck and southern curries. For dessert, you’ll find mango with sticky rice, but also the less familiar taro custard and fried bananas in spring roll wrappers. Besides all that, I-Thai offers a four-chili repertoire for those who really like it hot.
