Hyde Park favorite for fresh, consistent Thai standards and more unusual offerings--especially in this hood.
Thai is one of few cuisines where there's no small amount of competition in Hyde Park, but Snail Thai makes a case for itself with what by all reports is exceedingly friendly, assiduous service and a menu that offers more than most. All the standard appetizers, soups, salads, and curries are there, but there are also less common items, at least in Thai restaurants: among the appetizers alone are duck spring rolls, pork dumplings, fried squid, chive dumplings, northern Thai sausage, and "golden bag," pastry stuffed with corn, peas, potatoes and deep-fried. Under noodles you'll find spinach, wheat, and bean-thread noodle dishes in addition to rice and egg noodles, and there's an entire "Vegetable Lovers" section.
