Upon entering the Tropical Thai Restaurant you immediately notice the dark wood paneling, subdued lighting and the subtle elegant ambience. Once seated you further notice the glass topped carved wooden tables, fresh roses on all the tables, and the small oil tea lights adding to the ambience.

Upon presentation, without the slightest glance, you know the menu is extensive. Appetizers, Soups, Salads, Noodles, Curries, Tropical Thai Specialties, Fried rice, Vegetarian, Macrobiotic Foods, and Sushi. This is a great place to go with a group of people and share an assortment of dishes. However tonight I was dining alone!

Since I was only going to have one dish, I decided it had to be one of the restaurant??s specialties. I choose the Two Friends Panang ($16.95); a combination of shrimp and chicken with panang curry in a bed of steamed mixed vegetables. Panang curry is a Thai curry with ground peanuts, zucchini, bell peppers, and coconut milk. Although the dish was flagged as hot, I found the taste to be sweet and mild. There was very little ??heat? in this dish. Since the chef will adjust spice upon request, the next time I will ask for more spice which should be a good contrast to the sweetness of the coconut milk. There is a small selection of beer and wine but enough to suffice all tastes.

I have been to Tropical Thai several times and they are consistently wonderful. The atmosphere is lovely, always fresh flowers. I have only been for lunch and am always greeted by friendly staff, seated, and the food arrives fast and hot. I have some diet issues, and they custom my order. The food is tasty and fresh.

Pros: Great service, authentic Thai food, friendly staff

Cons: Not a one!

We used to all go in together and get one of their huge sushi "boats" if there were at least 5 of us. Great value, wonderful atmosphere. It was nice to always be recognized when we were there, and treated like friends. They had a fried grouper and scallion roll with Japanese mayo that I would crawl back to Florida for.
