I had the Larb Gai and ordered it "phet Thai." I will advise you to do this only if you want to have a jungle, up-country experience. Wow. 2 bites in and I was ordering my second Heineken. It was invigorating. If there is to be a next time, I will probably have the ground prik on the side to control the heat. Chicken blanched/cooked perfectly. Cilantro, mint, scallions and lettuce were super fresh and made the whole dish come together nicely.
Phad Kee Ew Moo was ordered spicy as well but, they must have seen me sweating and dousing the flames with cold beer so they were merciful. I've had bad versions of this fried noodle dish that were over cooked and clumpy or soupy and messy. I've had better versions elsewhere....in Thailand.
I wish I could move the Thai Cafe Restaurant to Tampa. They have a big menu and I would love to experience it all. If you live near Milpitas, this should be your go-to Thai joint if you are looking for the tastes of what the locals eat in Bangkok and Chiang Mai.
Maybe a little to brightly lit in some spots in small dining room but hardly a deal breaker.
