When a Thai place has been around for over a decade, we know they're doing something right. And at Thai Star, that mysterious "something" just so happens to be the kitchen's Thai recipes, served up the way it's done in Thailand.When a Thai place has been around for over a decade, we know they're doing something right. And at Thai Star, that mysterious "something" just so happens to be the kitchen's Thai recipes, served up the way it's done in Thailand: a spicy basil dish topped with a fried egg, for example, or a mee krob served with perfectly sweet, tangy, crispy noodles, or any of the other dozens of recipes that this kitchen has perfected over the course of the last ten years.
Thai Star's menu houses plenty of familiar Thai staples we know and love, including heaping bowls of Pad Thai and steaming-hot drunken noodles, but the kitchen really shines with the less common Thai specialties you can't exactly find at just any ol' pan-Asian eatery. Our favorite new-to-us dish discovery? Som Tum, a papaya salad with juicy grilled shrimp, chile sauce and lime juice that perfectly captures the complex, multilayered essence of Thai flavor: tart and tangy, a touch sweet and a kick of heat. Follow it up with a dessert of sweet sticky rice or fried bananas, and you'll see precisely why we think this is one Thai eatery with serious staying power.
