Miami New Times' Description
Even if you've never eaten here, you've surely seen this funky, boxy building standing awkwardly along South Dixie Highway saying, "Yeah, I know I'm a lima bean-colored anomaly, but there are always cars parked in my lot!" They're here because this busy little spot churns out fresh and comforting Thai food on a consistent basis. Take a seat in the recently revamped dining area (complete with vines hung on the banisters and a flashy tropical fish tank) and sample some satay ($7.95) - skewered marinated beef served on a sizzling mini barbecue - or the truly badass mee grob ($7.95), which consists of succulent little shrimp stuck in a sweet, crisp tumbleweed of rice noodles. Solid pad thai ($12.95) is dusted with peanuts and spiked with bean sprouts, while the house specialty, crispy chili snapper ($24.95) - a whole fried fish cut tableside and drenched in a robust garlic chili sauce - is truly the snappiest. For dessert, try the Thai doughnuts ($5) or a spoonful of chalky, pastel-colored mints that eternally sit in a bowl at the hostess stand.
Tips from foursquare
Best pad Thai in Miami IMO.
Eat any of the amazing dishes made with authentic, locally grown ingredients, especially the Pad Key Mow! Try the lunch special, any of the curries which can be _spicy_ if you ask, and Thai doughnuts.
