Thai Bistro is a rare bird, a mainstream-oriented Thai restaurant that doesn't cut any corners. The peppers aren't jalapeños, they're Thai peppers. The tart and sweet flavors come from expensive tamarind, not cheap limes and cane sugar. The curries at this Greenway spot are lovingly homemade from scratch, not whipped up from spice mixes. It's quality Thai food that both veteran Thai food lovers and novices can enjoy.
