Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Since the chefs at this polished, contemporary eatery don’t dull their food for western palates, only request “Thai spicy” dishes with plenty of water on hand. Larb (minced chicken or pork salad) and Som Tum Thai Style (papaya salad) sing with the taste of fresh chilies and vegetables. Marinated then fried, the “Sun Soaked Pork Strips” are served with a crimson pepper sauce and would make an amazing bar snack. When in season, Nusara stocks fresh mangoes near the register. They’re not solely decorative—layered with crisped coconut, Nusara’s mango sticky rice is a luscious gustatory finale.
