R’Noh Thai

April 18, 2015
The Shut-Up-and-Give-it-to-Me-Quick Version:
Good, not great.
I came here with Dennis and the bestie (shoutout to Kate) and, to be honest, I expected more. It’s a good Thai place to satisfy the craving and order take out, but I wont’ be going out of my way to return.

The I-Like-to-be-Wrapped-Up-in-All-the-Details Version:
When I walked in I sort of fell in love because there are elephants everywhere (you know me… elephants and lavender are my two obsessions besides food – ask anyone who knows me and they will undoubtedly tell you the same). The service was very attentive although there was a definite language barrier that made ordering a bit of a task. I’m all for authenticity and hand motioning, but the evening started off weird when our waitress didn’t seem all too enthusiastic about the menu.What we ate:

  • Egg rolls ($7.50)
  • Eggplant with tofu ($10.50)
  • Tom ka with prawns ($5.25)
  • Duck Curry ($14.95)
  • Chicken pad thai ($11.25)

Thoughts?

The eggrolls were good, it’s an eggroll is there much to say? The sauce was good and it didn’t taste overly greasy.

Tom Ka was my favorite, we asked for it with prawns and it was great! For being their small size, it was quite large. The broth was very tasty and super rich. It was a good-for-the-soul type soup that was delicious. There was a strong coconut and lime taste, which I love! The soup is made with coconut milk, lemongrass, galangal, mushrooms and lime juice. I highly recommend it!

The red curry was served with cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, cashews, coconut milk and pineapple. I really liked the flavor of the curry, but it would’ve been much better with chicken, the duck was too overpowering and the flavors didn’t seem to go well together.The eggplant was good, I love eating eggplant at Asian restaurants because they spice it up and add a lot of flavor, however, the tofu was dry and gummy. Would reorder without tofu.

The real draw was the pad thai because for some reason I have been having a crazy intense craving for it. I can say it was good, but I’ve had better. The noodles were a bit mushy and the flavor wasn’t as intense as I would’ve liked. A little spice would’ve been nice as well.
