Thai in Hicksville?

  • p

Newsday had a blurb a few weeks ago about an Thai place opening in Hicksville (related to another thai place on LI-same menu) While Hicksville has a large number of Indian place (relative to the rest of LI) Thai places are few to non existant on LI .

I went to Newsday's web site and found since it's in the archive I'll need to pay to access the article. Before I go through that (or drive aimlessly around)
Anyone have any idea where this place is (or its name)

  1. The restaurant you're searching for is the Lemonleaf Cafe, 536 S. Broadway, 516-739-3666. I'm not sure if it's open yet; you should probably call first.

      Thanks!!! It's greatly appreciated.

      At least I know where the Penang will be in Syosset (but will it be the "Good Penang")

      I'll give it a try and send in a report

    2. There's a Thai place called Shallot in Lake Ronkonkoma that Newsday and the NY Times raved over, but I didn't like at all. Use link below then scroll to the entry for
      Sunday, February 20.

      Hey, did anyone in your family go to Half Hollow Hills High School? I went to school with John and Liz Pace.

        Well as Robin was very helpful with the info, it seems it's the Lemonleaf Cafe. I'll have to check for reviews of the other one. I am always afraid when any ethinc place shows up around here, it will be watered down very quickly for the locals (as they complain). With the exception of a few dosa places and an el salvatorian place (where my appearance caused a stir) most might try at least initally, but eventally follow this route.

        My brother's name is John (but he went to school in Bethpage) Were they Italian??
