Chiang Mai Thai Restaurant Review

: Planted on the edge of Midtown (locals call the neighborhood The Bench), Chiang Mai joins a clutch of other hip strip mall businesses, and is a magnet for anyone craving authentic Thai dishes. You won't find fusion fare --- preparations are classic, ranging from tom yum koong and massaman curry to pad kee mao (drunken noodles). The kitchen is also adept at turning out tofu dishes without compromising on taste. A small wine and beer list is available. Service is delightful, and the atmosphere is traditional and warm. Alternatively, if you're feeling the need to dine at home, take-out is fast and consistently flavorful.
