Your prayers of finding a delicious Thai AND sushi restaurant have been answered in the form of Ka Prow. This hidden gem located on I-35 and Howard Lane not only offers Titaya's-grade noodle and rice dishes, but pretty darn inventive and inexpensive sushi too (how many of you have tried apples in your sushi, eh?) There is something for everyone at this Pan-Asian eatery and if you're looking for a culinary trip through Asia, save up your appetite for their $17.99 set dinner menu that includes edamame, Tom Kha or Tom Yum soup, sushi, noodle dish AND green tea or plum wine dessert! P.S. Of all the Thai places this scout has tried, Ka Prow's tofu noodle dishes are the closest in taste and preparation to Titaya's.
Fresh and Delicious Appetizers! – Have you tried Ka-Prow yet? I was introduced to it a couple of months ago and I LOVED it! We tried a variety of appetizers and loved every one. The steamed dumplings were just about the best I've tasted anywhere. Same for the spring rolls and sauce. Just amazing. The crab cakes and coconut shrimp were also fantastic. The sauce that came with the crab cakes was a little bit too spicy for me, but for most folks it would probably be just fine. Now whenever we go back, we order these same appetizers, the plum wine and make a meal of it! We loved these appetizers THAT MUCH!
Best thai in Austin. hands down. – I used to love Bangkok Cuisine's food until I tried Ka-Prow. The curries are awesome, and they make the food wonderfullly spicy with thai peppers if you ask for it. I am vegetarian, and don't have too many options other than tofu curries at most Thai places.....Ka-Prow even has vegetarian sushi rolls called Dune rolls that are great! I have yet to have anything in this restaurant that didn't beat any other Thai food that I have ever had. I reccommend this place highly, and if you're a fan of Thai food...and don't like your curries all watery, please try this place.
genius! – dumplings, pad thai, sushi rolls all in one place! heck yes! its a long ways away from the austin action, but if you are in the mood for dinner and a movie come here and catch a movie at a theater up north. or if you have to do a lot of boring shopping, there's a home store and an electronics store and all that type of stuff nearby. come with two or three other people so you can sample a lot of stuff.
Best Panang! Edamame! Salad! Green Tea Ice Cream! – Hands down, eating the panang chicken at Ka-prow, is as close to an out-of-body experience as one can get from food. In addition, the salad with its extremely fresh ingredients coupled with the sweet but spicy dressing, is the ulimate start to a great meal. Order the edamame as a starter...NOW! If you haven't had the green tea ice cream, stop whatever you are doing and go, go get it, as fast as you can.
Try the Tiger Cried or the Duck Curry! – I live in N. Austin, and it's a bit of a no man's land when it comes to good food. I decided to check out Ka-Prow when they first opened and was not dissappointed. I've tried many menu items and the staff is always ready to reccommend a specific item or wine. If Chef O is around he always makes a point to come over and make sure everyone is happy and to answer any questions. There is always something new to try on the specials board, and the food is always flavorful, not over-seasoned. Plus, if you like it hot, they'll really make it hot for you! Great food from around Asia.
A bit expensive, and a bit of a disappointment – I'm not a sushi-eater, so I can't comment on that.
I had seen a number of ultra-positive reviews for this restaurant before trying it out, so perhaps my expectations were too high? I loved the fresh green pepper buds (the whole bud, not just the peppercorn), but the rest of the meal was a disappointment. The entrees didn't have depth of flavor, and seemed (I'm no expert) MSG-heavy. Staff was polite, parking was easy, decor was ordinary.
Fresh Ingredients Are a Plus! – Ka-Prow has some of the most fresh ingredients for Austin restaurants. The waitstaff are very helpful and gave some great recommendations. The food is a bit on the spicy side, so don't forget to ask for 'mild' if needed! Great sushi as well, which was a welcome surprise. I highly recommend this restaurant!
A wide swath of Asian cuisines makes its way to north Austin. – In Short
The warm, welcoming interior is created by deeply saturated reddish-orange walls. There's a sushi bar, an open kitchen and two dining areas set with simple, dark-wood tables and chairs. The eclectic mix of Japanese, Chinese and Thai dishes means there's something for everyone here. The Philadelphia roll (salmon, avocado, cream cheese) yields a rich, creamy center. Paradise duck, one of the chef's specialties is arranged over a crispy bed of broccoli and julienned carrots.
Modern ambience meets authenticate Thai Food – Ka-Prow is a great place for dates, or for families. Has a diverse menu and sushi offering as well. The cook pays special attention to his diners by visiting and getting their opinions of the food. The food is tasty and a great way to introduce yourself or someone else to the great taste of Thai food. Pad se ewt, pad thai, Pad Kai Mau, or Pad Kra Prow are good choices to try. There are some great dessert choices from the traditional thai selection. Sticky Rice with ice cream is a favorite.
Fantastic! – Fantastic food since the opening night. Very friendly staff. Fresh, artfully done sushi. Great regular entrees for people who think sushi is the japanese word for "bait."
