Thai in Princeton/Trenton area?

Seeking a *good* Thai restaurant rather close to Princeton or Trenton. Does such a thing exist? Older threads have mentioned good things about Bangkok Cuisine in Edison. I'll investigate it, but for now, maybe someplace closer to Princeton?

Perhaps in Bucks County? (although I have to admit, I'm laughing trying to envision a good Thai place there!)

  1. I don't know any Thai restaurants in the Princeton/Trenton area. Of course, that doesn't mean there aren't any!

    Here's a recent thread about Thai places in Bucks. Pickings are pretty slim there though you might want to consider the two places in Lambertville that I mention:

    If I were you, I would head to Somerville. Many good Thai restaurants there. Just do a search on this board.

      Oops, just remembered that I DO know of a Thai place in Princeton. I've never been there but perhaps someone else has and can chime in. Here's a recent review from the NY Times:

        Just tried it--really not good, unfortunately.

          Thanks, SunnyD. Can you elaborate on why you didn't like it? The review made it sound interesting.

    2. Tom Yum Goong
      Had dinner there back in the fall, enjoyed it. It is hidden from Nassau Street, it is back by the Whole Earth market (behind a Chinese takeout place).

          Thanks, all! I'll try Tom Yum Goong in a couple weeks when in the area.
