Key Word: to go!! – S&I Thai To Go is just that... to go!! Don't expect to sit at one of the 2 tables they have in the restaurant, just take your food and go. But the food is scrumptious for the price - the lunch special includes a lot of goodies, like pad thai, rice, an egg roll and some soup - for not more than $5, if I remember correctly. Ate so much S&I pad thai that it's hard for me to eat it anywhere else.
Turned off – OK, there are several things that makes me dislike this place. First I have to say that I'm an interracial ( Thai-American), so I don't really look Thai. I was there a month ago, waiting to place an oder since I heard so much about the place that serves real thai food. I was so excited until I heard the lady at the front saying thing in Thai that totally turned me off ( something that was rude to the customers if they can understand Thai ). But I still ordered the food anyway since I was there already there, if was good but the portion was moer on the rice, littel on chicken and so oilly....It wasn't the real Thai I grown up with...but it was OK. Anyway...
Authentic Thai Food – My girlfriend and I have gotten delivery and take out a few times from this hidden gem. S & I offers a great menu selection and a separate authentic Thai menu. Our favorites have been the spicy catfish, pork on stick with spicy fish sauce and red curry. All these dishes taste a little different than what most American's have come to expect from typical Thai food. This in my opinion is a good thing. The food is spicy, with a ton of complex flavors. Don't be afraid to go out on a limb and try something new. S & I offers great tastes for the adventurous diner. The only problem with this place is the portions are small and the restaurant itself is tiny and kind of dumpy. Get delivery or take out and you won't be sorry.
Great Thai food with authentic dishes and flavors – If you want great Authentic Thai food for a decent price, S&I is the perfect place to eat. I am from Thailand and let me tell you that the food they serve here is very similar in taste to what we have in Thailand. I especially recommend the crispy pork with basil over rice! The only thing people may not appreciate at this place though is the smaller than average portion, but for the price, its still a bargain. The chefs often add new dishes to the menu as well, so dont forget to ask them about what's new. Be open minded and visit this tiny restaurant that will surprise you. Enjoy!
Not worth it. – I couldn't agree more with bustudi's review. I would reccomend you to go to the one on harvard st. in brookline. A little more money, but muchhappier.
Do not expect so much, – I have say that I didn't like this restaurant that much. My friend kept telling me to go and try. I price look attractive seem to be really cheap for Thai-food compare to all others. But don't be fool by that, the portion and quality are not that great. I got my chicken basil over rice, LOT of rice, but only little of chicken basil. Basically, you pay for over portion of rice.
