Time Out says

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

It may lack the peppery authenticity of Bangkok found at the city’s best Thai establishment, Woodside’s Sripraphai, but Wave Thai is a reliably delicious neighborhood spot. Smirking Buddhas co-exist harmoniously with ruby walls and the bathrooms’ showerhead faucets, but it’s the curries that stand out, especially the peanut and sweet potato combination in the Massaman. While appetizers like the tough crispy duck salad and mealy, chewy calamari disappoint, the bean vermicelli salad is delicate and complexly flavored. Even better is the moo yang—butter tender pork skewers coupled with a slightly sweet, vinegar-based house sauce that should be bottled and sold in groceries everywhere.
