Chai Thai Orange Avenue
Restaurant Review: Chai Thai Orange Avenue
A year and a half ago I told you about a new little Thai restaurant called Chai Thai. Now that little restaurant has another little location. One more and it will qualify as a chain -- and it would only have to add an n to the end of its name.
The two locations couldn’t be more different in style -- one has some, the other doesn’t.
Well, maybe that’s a little harsh, but the original Chai Thai occupies a space that has been a number of restaurants, most recently -- and for a good long time -- a Chinese eatery and various other cuisines, including Spanish. The place is well-worn and frankly a bit drab.
But the new location, on Orange Avenue across from the SoDo complex, has a fresh newness about it, from its slatelike flooring to the highly polished dark wood tabletops.
Both locations, however, share the same sincere friendliness of the staffers and, most importantly, fine food.
