5. thai chicken curry puff,
if you like thai original food you should try all those appetizers, you will love its all
NEVER AGAIN! – I ordered delivery from Em Thai last night and will never go there again for these reasons:
1) I found a large dead insect floating in a pool of salad dressing at the bottom of my green papaya salad.
2) Before ordering, I asked if the 'Eggplant D-Light' was one of the lighter/healthier menu options and was assured that it was. But the vegetables and tofu were DRENCHED in oil -- literally oil would ooze out when I tried to cut the vegetables into bite-size pieces -- and there was a layer of orange grease 1/4 inch thick at the top of the dish.
3) I had terrible heartburn and stomach pains for the remainder of the night.
I ate here once before and it was fine, but after this most recent experience, I will never go back. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!!
NOW !!They serve beer, wine and mixed sake drinks!! – I just ate at EM THAI last week and i am glad they serve beer, wine and mixed sake drinks. And they have happy hours 5.00-7.30 pm ( everyday) beer $2 for singha beer and mixed sake drinks just $3!!! WOWWW!!!
Great Thai food for a Thai girl – i'm Thai, so it's always so hard to find even decent Thai food anywhere. i'm almost always disappointed. i tried this place when it first opened and i've been going back ever since. their food is so flavorful and tasty, and their service is great. i usually just order takeout, but even then the staff is always so nice and friendly. i like my Thai food spicy, and they know exactly how spicy i need it. this is authentic Thai, and i will continue to go back whenever i need my Thai food fix.
Cheap and chic, this friendly Thai joint revs up the Smith Street dining scene. – In Short
With a red coral-like sculpture cutting across its stark white walls, Em Thai has a clean, futuristic look. Generous portions of Thai standards, like marinated beef salad, ginger-laced stir-fry, mango salad, and pad thai, are served in mod ceramic tableware. Neighborhood folk celebrate the B.Y.O.B. policy and feast on house specialties, such as the chicken curry puffs appetizer, shrimp and avocado in panang curry, country-style duck with lemongrass and lime leaves, and fried bananas for dessert.
My New Favorite Dining Habit – A very welcome addition to an area thick with Thai competitors that don't quite compare. Been enjoying it with increasing frequency since it arrived this past winter. The space was formerly occupied by "Three Bow Thais"--a place that sat comically empty nearly every Saturday night. All dishes I've tried have been memorably delectable. The basic pad thai is deliciously tangy (note: the eat-in version is slightly better than take out). Chicken pad cashew nut packs a flavorful p-unch. My BF has raved about the cumin chicken and duck basil. We also dig basic standbys like massaman curry and pad basil which are equally terrific. The curry puff and roti pancake appetizers come recommended, too. Much to my delight, I haven't tried a *single* thing yet that I would describe as mediocre. The dining room's decor is contemporary, clean, and simple. You can pop in with sneakers and not feel scroungy; it's also classy and cute enough to take your parents to for a casual meal, etc. The service is always fast and courteous. To boot, take out is lighting fast. I am a 10 minute walk away and all orders are in my stomach (to some degree) in less than 20 minutes. The concentration of Thai restaurants in the Cobble Hill/Carroll Gardens vicinity is high (at least seven come to mind). If you're interested in taste, this is by far the leader of the packt. Go. Soon. I love this place.
Best thai food EVER!!! – This place ROCKS! I went with my bf last weekend. The ambience is nice..simple decor but good lighting and CLEAN. We ordered the appetizer sampler and it has 2-4 pieces of 5 different appetizers for $8! Everything was good and there was so much we didnt even finish. The fish entree my bf got and the eggplant & tofu in chili sauce I got were both superb! We are huge thai food fans and this was the best we've had! Have to try the banana tod for dessert. we were stuffed! def going back.....
Love EM´!!!! – EM´ is great! I totally recommend it
EM´ has great food and great service. The prices are extremely reasonable. I usually get the lunch special take out order which is a total steal. For 6 bucks you get soooo much food. Worth trying! And once you try it...you'll be a fan of EM´ just like me! The atmosphere is lovely as well if you want to dine in. Beautiful decor.
