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.
yes, yes and totally! Golden Singha for the win! love that place.
@4 hahahaha--well put.
can't wait to try the place--thanks for the recommendation.
mmmmm...crab fried rice... I think I have a craving now! They are AWESOME!!!!
Okay, so I have to get political here...love 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.
