    I make a lot of Indian curry. (A funny thing about making homemade curry from scratch is that you don't use curry powder.) I scanned the menu, but chicken curry is one of my faves. I also make a hardcore multiple-meat curry that is expensive to make, and a half day's work, but well worth it.

    Try their "Black Pepper"-- that's what I'd get. It all sounds yummy.

    I make mine so hot, but good, that people literally use hand towels to wipe the sweat from their faces as they eat, saying "It's sooo good, but hot, but I can't stop eating!" That's why a chilled cucumber dip is there beside them. (It's the grated ginger root interacting with various peppers that makes them sweat.) ~~Bon appetit

    See if they do a cashew chicken, those are usually great at Thai restaurants. Of the 3 main Thai curry flavours (red, yellow, green), I've always preferred the red one.

    *chuckles at southerners*

    Asian food is basically like mcdonalds on the westcoast.

    They don't seem to have what I normally get but from the menu I would order the Pad prik pao
    If you're new at all this, you can go with the Thai Fried rice with shrimp. Can never go wrong with that. It's just fried rice with veggies. mmmmm with soy sauce, dang I'm getting hungry.

    What... no Pad Thai? Black pepper is my personal fav. Mmmm... Going to have to make a trip to Leo's Thai Food and Dim Sum Place now for some Ma-Po Tofu with Pork!

    I always get Chicken Pad Thai and not spicy. If you like long noodles you'll like that.

    I just read for lunch this looks real spicy except the stir fry vegetables and oyster sauce or stir fried meat. You also get the great spring roll and soup so it looks like a pretty good price for that meal. My friend took me once to a Thai place and ordered food it was too hot for me to enjoy so be careful with the spices. Have fun.

    I love Thai food. We make it all the time in my house. My specialty is Pad Thai

    From that menu I'd order Pad kra pao, Garlic and Pepper, Mussaman curry or
    Panang curry.

    Let us know how it goes
