Nominated for: BEST Thai
The city's most delicious proof that life exists beyond Pad Thai is found within these neon-lit walls. Authentic and exceptionally fresh dishes dominate chef-owner Tony Suktheva's Dinner menu ( Drunken Noodle and Montien Fried rice). Appertizer's menu(Kar thong tong, bang bang and fried calamari) and they've earned him a rabid following. It's well deserved. Straight from Bangkok dishes like Montien Jungle and Larb gai (super-spicy minced chicken) sing with the region's sharp flavors: lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, galangal, and chili. The best beef massaman and red curry is smooth, sweet, and teeming with gorgeous veggies.
