As the first Brooklyn location of this small chain of Thai restaurants, it is also the largest at 7,500 square feet. Filled with materials like wood, brick, slate, concrete, and wrought iron, the dining room’s décor is a combination of industrial chic and art deco. Guests are greeted by a large Buddha statue below a skylight that shines on a reflecting pool. Two bars are available during wait times, which can be long. While the requisite pad-thai noodles and massaman curry are represented, it is specialties like the whole red snapper with tamarind chili sauce that best showcase the kitchen.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
