New SE Asian in Worcester?

Dinsdale45 Oct 18, 2009 06:45 AM

I was riding down Park Ave and it looked like a new restaurant (Apsara?) is opening up near Blue Jean Pizza, near Pleasant St. I know there are 3 Apsara restaurants in the RI/South Coast area, but they are apparently unrelated to each other. I think a Thai place used to be at this site for years. Does anyone have any other info?

    No info from me, but boy, am I glad. Worcester needs a new Thai place. Racha Thai is just plain bad.

      I agree Worcester could use a good Thai restaurant, but if the name is any indication, it's more likely to be Cambodian/Khmer than Thai.

        If it's related to one of the other Apsara restaurants, there may be Cambodian, Lao, Thai, Vietnamese, and Chinese menu items. I've dispatched my one of my old Wormtown homeboys on a recon mission over there.

      Looks like it's now open. For some reason, my company blocked the restaurant website so I can't post a link.

      Here's a blurb:
