You may think that Pad Thai is a Thai restaurant. Well, you are half right: it is a Thai restaurant that serves also Japanese cuisine. Yes, that sounds weird, but they have a nice Japanese cuisine menu that includes the usual sushi and sashimi, bento boxes...But we were not going there for that and sticked to some Thai dishes.

Of course, I started by ordering a Thai ice tea, a must have in this kind of restaurant.

Then, we ordered the Spring rolls, also called Po Pia Taud, that were served with a Thai sweet and sour sauce.

They were pretty good, pipping hot, not too greasy and tasty.

For my entrée, I went for my favorite dish: chicken curry massaman.

I asked to have it mild and it had a slight kick that I really liked. This was a nice portion that came with some white rice. It might not have been the best curry massaman I had, but I admit that I enjoyed it.

Jodi ordered string beans that were sauteed with soybeans, garlic and bean curd. That was good: I love when string beans are soft and it was the case at Pad Thai.

For dessert, we decided to try their mango sticky rice. The sticky ice, bathed in coconut milk, was delicious. However, the mango was not ripe...Too bad!

So, it was ok. Pad Thai is not a must have, but is conveniently located, few blocks from Penn Station. So, in case you are craving Thai food before hopping on a train, this might be your spot. 

Enjoy (I did)!
