Does anyone have any good Thai places to recommend in Baltimore? My husband and I would like to do something different this weekend.

    Thai Arroy is authentic but very heavy on the cooking oils. Ten O Six across the street is the best Thai in FedHill. She cooks to-order every dish and her son (the olny waiter I've seen in a year) is very nice. We go for the food first and foremost, everything else might not appeal to some people but most family run ethnic restaurants are not "trendy" anyway.

      I'm a little late but maybe next time you can try Little Spice in Hanover, by the Arundel Mills mall. Their website is http://www.littlespice.org/ I've been here 4 times and haven't been disappointed yet.

        I went to Little Spice to pick up lunch yesterday. The food is great but they seem to be a victim of their own success. They did not have enough staff to handle a busy lunch hour. If you go, just be prepaed to exercise patience

          I second little spice. Be sure to arrive at 11:30a or before or be prepared to wait.

          I recently tried Lemongrass in Annapolis. Very good Thai but very busy = a bit of a wait

            For good, inexpensive, authentic, inexpensive thai food there is a small carryout place (with a few tables for dining in) on Harford Road (at Northern Parkway). It's called Chokchai. They don't have a website but yummy food, esp. the Pad Thai, which I think is $7.95!

              i second ChokChai. The original chefs @ Thai Arroy used to work the kitchen @ Thai One On in Towson (not sure if they're still there); the food's good but i wouldn't say it's 'the best ever' - it's nice that it's BYO. I find the Thai food @ Thai Landing to be too sweet and Americanized in taste. I've always had a good hot n spicy meal @ 'The Thai Restaurant' on Greenmount and 33rd.

              My sister swears by Thai One On in Towson.

                Thai Arroy is serviceable, standard Thai fare; Ten-O-Six across the street, which is Thai/New American, a little more interesting.

                  Yes, Thai Arroy is great! Bmorehound is right - there's better Thai in DC, but I think Thai Arroy is as good as, if not better, than the places in DC. The other places in Bmore are nothing to write home about and are expensive - I'd rather make my own Thai at home than pay $14 for bad pad thai!

                    Thai is better in DC than Bmore. The best thai dish I've ever had in B'more was at Talay Thai, but I've also had some pretty crappy ones there too. Last time I went to Thai Landing was very disappointed. Lots of posters on this board have expressed a favor Thai Arroy in Fed Hill.

                    Would also advise against the Thai place on Boston Street.

                      Is the Thai place on Boston street the one that is in Fells Point? I am from DC so I don't always remember the names and streets where places are located, but a large group of us ate at the Fells Point Thai place (it was a few blocks off the square) and we all love it. Best green curry veggies I had ever tried.
