Fodor's Expert Review PaaDee

$ Southeast Thai Fodor's Choice

Adjoining the more celebrated, reservations-only sister restaurant Langbaan, PaaDee serves some of the freshest, most flavorful Thai food in town, and at remarkably fair prices given the complexity of the cooking, the warmth of the staff, and the attractiveness of the dining room, which is on the ground floor of a contemporary condo building at the restaurant-blessed intersection of 28th and Burnside. The kitchen here specializes in traditional Thai comfort fare: grilled squid skewers with chili-lime sauce; wild-caught prawns with lemongrass, scallions, ground rice, and a spicy lime dressing; and sautéed pork belly with basil, chili, green beans, and a fried egg rank among the most popular dishes. The bar pours some interesting cocktails and well-chosen local wines and beers, too.
