Veg friendly! – Hey, this place is near my house. We order from here frequently - and they are always very accomodating for vegans. YUM!
Fast delivery – Never know this restaurant before, then I just got the mailed menu for delivery. It looked pretty interesting. I ordered soft-shell crab with royal spice sauce, wow crabs size is so big. I couldn't believe they use this size for low price, the flavor is also great. Their delivery time was just 20 minutes.
Another in the line of Park Slope Thai restaurants, this one cued to a certain ruby root. – In Short
The owners of this Thai restaurant obviously like food names: They also own nearby Mango Thai. Here, the namesake is represented by the red and purple color scheme, a contrast to the bone-white furniture straight out of Woody Allen's "Sleeper." But other than the complimentary beet chip starter, the scarlet vegetable is nowhere to be found on the menu, a mixture of standard Thai fare and more intriguing dishes like avocado-mango salad and red snapper with champagne-vanilla butter sauce.
Great Thai Fusion – First time I went, I just tried the basic Thai dish, green curry, wow it was the best green curry I ever had. Second time I tried off course Pad Thai off the lunch menu, it started to convince me this might be the best Thai place on 7th. Third time I thaught I should give it a try the unusual dish in Thai place, the Soft Shell crab in Thai herb sauce, I just found my new favourite dish, and totally convinced me the fav. Thai place. I definitely will come back for this dish and try out the new dishes.
not so great – Decided to go there for lunch. no one else was there. we ordered (we thought) off the lunch menu. i had the panang, which was excellent. my friend had the crab, which was fishy tasting. and then we got the bill, we saw that they overcharged us (the crab was $15 instead of $8 as listed on the menu). we told the waitress about the discrepancy. apparently we did not get the items from the lunch menu, but from the dinner menu. they charged us the lunch menu price, but only after telling us that it is up to the customer to indicate from what menu you're ordering! frankly, that's her job as a waitress. and if people come in at lunchtime and order something that's on both the lunch and dinner menu, she should have asked for clarification.
just my bad luck... – I was impressed by its ambience (maybe a little too red, but still nice) and eclectic menu. I, unfortunately, had to put my coat back on and step out into the rain after ordering to be able to go to the bodega across the street to buy beer to accompany my meal. I ordered the mango and avocado salad which was a slice of an already darkening avocado on top of strips of mango. I had the tuna with butter garlic sauce on a bed of steamed vegetables. I enjoyed the entree but regretably my stomach didn't.. it did everything in its power to purge the meal... Dessert options were kept to a basic minimum to quicken my departure, I presume, as they were closing the books for the night in front of me and ready to call it a night. It was not even 10:30pm.
finally, excellent Thai in Park Slope! – I have always wondered when a great Thai place would come Park Slope and now it has. We ordered lots of apps and dishes and everything was fabulous. Delivery is fast, too if you do take out, which I prefer because it can get crowded.
The best Thai food – I've been there many times. I love the lemongrass beef appetizer, which was wonderful, and I got the Miso Glazed Sea Bass, which was really good, and HUGE! The othertime, I got the Fresh Salad Roll, which came with this really great ground peanut vinaigrette. and then the chicken with chili basil spice which was lovely and really spicy. My friend got the honey glazed duck, which she loved. The portions are extremely generous. And it's BYOB at the moment, which is really nice.
Beet is great – I've had the potato-corn croquettes, very fresh and good. The panang curry is awsome their portion is generous. And they are willing to do both veggies and tofu for us, even though the menu specifies one or the other. Their spicy basil sauce is very fantastic I've heard great things about their Jumbo shrimp and Scallop with brown butter sauce.
It is on 7th Ave. between 9th and 8th.
Couldn't Even Get Seated, Had to Leave – We arrived to a line of people waiting. We put our names on the reservation list. After watching numerous couples get seated, and we were the last couple, we were ready for our table as a table opened up. But a group of 3 women arrived and were seated at the free table. When we confronted the hostess, she told us that there were 3 of them and only 2 of us, and that the 3 women had a reservation at 8:30pm. It was 9:30pm. When we complained, she just shrugged her shoulders and said sorry. I won't eat there based on their bad managing skills. Good staff know how to manage a steady stream of customers, not to turn away people.
