Thai food in (city of) Napa?

Anyone know of or have a favorite Thai restaurant in the city of Napa? Preferably for takeout?

    There are two, neither great, but okay when you must. Don't know the names of either - one is on the north side of Trancas, just east of Jefferson, near the photo shop. The other is on the south side of Lincoln, also just east of Jefferson, kind of across the street from Red Rock.

      Tony, drive down to American Canyon and order some excellent Malaysian food at China Chef. It has some Thai dishes on the menu too, if you must. Here's Jojo's post, http://www.chowhound.com/topics/400097 , I'll add more.

      110 W American Canyon Rd Ste L1, American Canyon, CA 94503

        Thanks, Melanie. We ended up at Thai House on Trancas - we were craving it desperately. Good food, nothing mind-blowing. Had a Franken riesling (in a bocksbeutel, another thing I was craving), but it was corked. Heading back to K&L the next time I'm in SF...

        This Malaysian place sounds very interesting & worth a try, for sure.

          Huh. What did you find that was worth trying? My wife and I tried it soon after the original posting, and we were very disappointed. She ordered the Hainese chicken rice, and the chicken was a bit dry, and the skin too fatty -- and no soup. I tried the beef rendang, and the rempah was obviously some quick-cook shortcut, and tasted sharp -- maybe MSG? -- and not rich. And while the beef rendang was a "lunch special", all they served with it was rice and slices of beef. No veggies. Bleh.
