Tucked away in an unassuming strip mall on Richmond near Hillcroft, Thai Gourmet is one of those places that are authentically Thai yet still accessible to relatively untutored palates. Dishes like Penang Beef ordered "Thai hot" may scorch the tongue in true Thai style, while others, like the basil beef or their excellent tom kha gai coconut chicken lemongrass soup, make room for an exploration of Thai flavors without the requisite spicy sting. The decor of wall hangings with Thai imagery creates an exotic ambience that is well-appointed enough for a nice date or family meal, yet readily caters to clientele wanting takeout. Great Thai food at reasonable prices with a nice atmosphere and courteous waitstaff make this place a sure bet for Thai anytime.
