TAKOI Restaurant Review

: TAKOI began as a pop-up in Ann Arbor and is now a standalone establishment that’s part of the trendy restaurant scene in Detroit’s Corktown. This Thai eatery nails the ultra-cool, made-in-Detroit ambience, and it gets the food right as well. The menu changes often, but we've enjoyed the papaya salad, Chinese duck noodles, hot pot with frogs’ legs, khao soi curry, stir-fried nira flower and the coconut vegan ice cream. Thrice-cooked sweet potatoes, with their charred skins and smooth and soft insides, are served with palm sugar, sherry, avocado and bonito flakes. Experienced mixologists offer cocktail specials. Adding to the overall Asian theme, house-made tinctures infused with Thai ingredients are part of the bartenders’ bag of boozy tricks. Service is first-rate and prices are very reasonable.
