Best Thai Restaurant — Night Market Thai

It took a while for Night Market Thai to find its feet but, these days, the trendy-looking spot with its huge Buddha mural and decorative shelves filled with Thai knick knacks has literally turned up the heat on its dishes. Spice is used liberally here, a nod to the authenticism that restaurateur Mike Tran tries to imbue into all of his concepts, but that’s why you go.

If you can withstand the heat, the undiluted flavors sing on the palate in dishes like the pork larb, tom yum soup, and papaya salad. Less spicy offerings that are just as authentic include the Thai sausage appetizer and the pad see ew noodles. To make the most of your visit, come hungry, order family style, and wash the meal down with a bottle of Lucky Buddha Beer.
