Oh Huzzah! I used to live next door and began begrudgingly eating there becasue of proximity. Turns out lucky me--it is SO GOOD. Love it.

Golden Singha is one of my favorite places. I ate there on Sunday as well. I'm glad to hear them get the props they deserve. The food is EXCELLENT!

Been there and done that. There needs to be a ban on any more Thai and Teriaky(sp) places in Seattle.

"excessively reasonable"? Were you doing Mad-Libs when you wrote the post?

Yes! My girl T-Light took me there last week and it ruled my ass. Almost as good at Thai Cafe in Ballard.

Okay, so I have to get political all the Thai food restaurants in Seattle, but where are the actual Thai people themselves? Is there a Thai neighborhood somewhere around here? A "Greater Seattle Thai Association" or something? I mean, there seems to be a community organization for many nationalities, why not the Thais? I know zilch about their culture (except that they know how to make noodles in 100 different delicious ways) and maybe I don't have to, but they seem oddly unpoliticized.

Two words - Thai Tom.

Crap. Now my secret place is out. Damn you hungry homosexual parade goers *shakes fist*!!!

Did you try anything other than the Pad Thai? All too often I hear people say "Oh you gotta check out such-and-such Thai place, they have the best Pad Thai..." Pad Thai is good and all, but it would be my last choice for a dish that represents Thai food, american-style at least. Pad Thai is weird. I haven't been to the Golden S. yet, but I'll be sure to check it out.

I love it when my fresh vegetables get aggressive.

As a regular at Golden Singha, I'll put in plugs for the sen yai ("wide rice") noodle-based dishes. Specifically: golden noodles, cashew noodles, and sen yai noodles.

Other noteworthy in downtown:
- pad talay and pad kee mao at Buddha Thai on 2nd, where pork means pork tenderloin (!) and pad talay means two-thirds of an ocean.

- spicy ranch noodles at Noodle Ranch: ask for extra spicy, less noodles, and extra vegetables, and wish they'd charge $1-2 for half as many noodles and $0.50 worth of broccoli and carrots.

Pad thai test: ask whether they use tamarind, then in what form. A blank stare says to keep moving down the menu or down the street.

Overcharging awards go to Racha and to a lesser extent, Shallots. I respect Racha for finding folks thrilled to cough up $12 for noodles available - with more flavor, in the same atmosphere - around the corner for $7.
