Just moved here from NYC like 3 months ago . and I am really craving some good Thai.
Dont expect to find what I can get back home but thats ok.. I would just like a nice authentic place I can go and have some good food..
I can't understand these thai-japanese 'fusion' places that are everywhere.. sushi bar in a Thai restaurant?? and they're usually really bad at BOTH cuisines.. lol
any advice would be appreciated, I live in ft lauderdale, but would be willing to go as far south as Miami ... Since I go there often.. THANKS!!!
by the way, THERES GREAT LATIN FOOD HERE IN FL!
These are the best I've been to:
Eddie Hill's Sushi & Thai
134 N Federal Hwy
Hallandale Beach, FL 33009-4353
Siam Lotus Room
6388 S Dixie Hwy
South Miami, FL 33143
In Fort Lauderdale area, there aren't a lot of good Thai restaurants. There is one that I like, on Sunrise Blvd around where Sunrise and US-1 meet, but I can't remember the name. Sorry about that.
In Hollywood area there is Nakorn Thai -- haven't been there in a while but I've always had a good meal there. In Sunny Isles there's Siam River, on 163rd Street east of US-1.
Eddie Hill's is a combo Japanese/Thai and they're better at the Japanese; I wouldn't recommend that based on what you mentioned in your post.
Eddie Hill has GREAT Pad Thai & Curry Dishes and more.
AND if you want to try vietnamese, this place has an extensive authentic menu. I have only been there once and enjoyed it. Very reasonable prices.
Little Saigon Vietnamese
16752 N Miami Ave
North Miami Bch, FL 33169-6033
By the way, it's very helpful if you include the city/area of your preference in the subject line of your post. Florida is such a big area for this board to cover -- if your subject line reads 'South Florida' or 'Fort Lauderdale', you'll get more responses and it's easier on all participants across the state. I hope you enjoy your new home!
Tamarind Thai in Miami Beach (71st Street a few blocks west of Collins Ave.). Very mellow place with great service. Chef has a few places in London but this one is apparently more casual.
