House Of Thai

Some people might tell you that the Northeast is a place for steaks and sandwiches, seafood spots, and diners. But there's a handful of good Thai places, and this one is among the best. Start your meal with the lightly breaded siam chicken that is perfectly chewy and comes with sauteed string beans, broccoli, and a gloriously sweet peanut sauce that we’d buy by the bucket. Another thing to go for is the green curry, which tosses eggplant, snow peas, and bell peppers in a creamy coconut sauce.   

With a bunch of noodle dishes like pad see ew, salads like som tam, and a few shareable duck meals, this takeout-only spot is the place to go for a standout casual weekday meal. Plus, since they open at 11am, you can also grab a quick lunch and a Thai iced tea before heading back to the office.
