The new Andrea’s, which opened at the end of 2012, has quickly become a place to see and be seen. But the reviews are in and the verdict is that this spot isn’t just about the ambience. Yes, the expansive dining room is fashionably smart and DJs provide a late-night soundtrack, but the menu is an Asian-food aficionado’s delight. Countless sushi combinations, shrimp pad Thai, dim sum, kimchee—Andrea’s has it covered.

Despite its location in the run-down Commercial Center, where it competes with the nationally renowned Lotus of Siam and a pair of nationally infamous sex clubs, Komol remains hugely popular for its authentic rendering of Thai cuisine, vast range of vegetarian and vegan options, plus 1950s Americana such as egg foo young, all at bargain prices. Specify the degree of heat you’d like, and the kitchen will try to comply.

Lotus of Siam

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

Lauded by food bloggers and critics, Lotus of Siam was rated the best Thai restaurant in the US by now-defunct culinary bible, Gourmet magazine. We might not go that far, but it is certainly a rare and unexpected treat in an otherwise unprepossessing strip mall. Saipin Chutima puts her specialties on the huge and easy-to-read menu, and isn’t afraid to make her food spicy. However, many diners opt for the excellent and super-cheap lunch buffet.

Thai Original BBQ

  • Rated as: 4/5

Despite its gritty locale, Thai Original BBQ remains one of the best Thai eateries in town. The friendly and helpful service makes choosing from the large menu of specialties simple; the hearty portions of such classics as pad thai are worth the trip. Highlights include papaya salad, excellent satay, and rich and spicy beef noodle soup.
