Tyrynda Thai Restaurant - Has anyone been here yet?

mswestchester Nov 8, 2009 08:08 PM

I was trolling through Westchester Magazine's website the other day and I saw this restaurant mentioned. Has anyone been here yet? It's in Sleepy Hollow the site said - Cortlandt Street to be exact. The menu looks pretty good and some of the dishes sound so yummy!!!

I'm thinking about going there this week and wanted to know if I should skip it or not.
Any thoughts out there? I know there's a whole Thai thread already, but I didn't see this place on there. I'll gladly let you all know how it was if I visit.

    We just had dinner there last Tuesday night, thought the food was very good and very reasonable. Nice portions. The owners are very pleasant too. I had the pineapple duck, nice and crispy in a red curry sauce with veges. My dh got the pad thai, was the best pad thai I'd ever had and my friends are all vegetarians, they were all happy with their selections too. Everyone joined the clean plate club that night!

      We just ate there this evening for the first time. The appetizer of thai crepes (rice-flour crepes stuffed with ground peanuts and turnips) were excellent, and the tom yum koong was delicious and almost (but not quite) as hot as I've had it in Thailand. Fried talapia with tamarind sauce was good, masaman curry duck was cooked just right (tender and moist without being undercooked)although curry could have been a little more flavorful. Sticky coconut rice with mango desert was spectacular. Decor is lovely, service was very friendly and attentive. Only complaint is they seem to use bell pepper in too many dishes (although I ended up choosing dishes w/o them).

        We had dinner there Sunday night, 2nd visit to this incarnation (also had been to it before when it was Thai House). Husband can't seem to stray from the massuman (sp?) curry (he chose the chicken variety). I had chicken larb salad and tom gum soup. Very nice all around, and want to go with a bigger group for more variety in our dishes. Wish they delivered...

          They definitely deliver - i order from there nearly every week. Haven't eaten in the restaurant yet, so can't really comment on that experience, but as far as take out we have enjoyed it very much. They curries are nice and hot - like they should be.

        My friend and I came here for lunch one cold crisp afternoon and were very pleasantly surprised with the ambiance of the restaurant, the friendliness and service, and most especially the lunch - priced at $7.95 (we are both retired so price matters!). The food was extraordinarily fresh and good and the portions more than generous, especially for a lunch special. I'm planning to go back with another friend for lunch this weekend.

          I was not all too exited with this place. The food was decent enough but I had minor complaints about most dishes. The duck was dry, the fried snapper was a little soggy by the time it made it to the table, the pineapple curry was a little too stick, sweet. Over all, not a bad place but the Thai House was better, which is a shame. I went to a place in Mohegan Lake which was much better, and a little cheaper too. It was called Bangkok Spice. I know that its a little far for people down county but to Nancy C, just go with Bangkok Spice.
