Thai in Bergen County ?
We really like Pimaan in Emerson (or is it Westwood), but it's quite far from our home. Are there any comparable Thai restaurants in Bergen County?
re: Hugh DeMann
In the Hackensack area there are a few options. My new favorite (thanks to this board) is a little hidden place in a strip mall on Passaic ave. in Rochelle Park called Ruby Siam. This small unassuming place serves great food. On our last trip we loved the drunken noodles with shrimp and the crispy duck salad. Another solid spot is Bangkok garden in Hackensack on main ave. Right down the street is another place called Wondees which I have heard is very good thai as well, but have not tried them as of yet.
Here is a list of all of the Thai restaurants that I'm aware of in Bergen County:
Pimaan - Emerson
Ridge Thai - Ridgewood
Taste of Thai - Ridgewood
Malee - Ridgewood
Wondee's - Hackensack
Bangkok Garden - Hackensack
Lotus of Siam - Rochelle Park
Thai Chef - Hackensack
Ploi Thai - Rutherford
Penang - Lodi
Spring Grill - Rutherford
I'm probably missing a few, but that should be a good starting point.
Real Thai Cuisine (formerly Siam Ruby Cafe) in Rochelle Park is great. Good food, great prices. Wondee's in Hackensack is also good, but I find the location to be a lot less convenient than Real Thai.
Here's one I'm wondering about, but I'm too weirded out to actually try it until I get some recommendations. In the strip mall next to the Shop Rite in Fair Lawn is a bagel place. They used to be called Sam's Bagels, and they were around probably a solid ten years or so. I see that the name has changed, and now they offer bagels AND thai food.
(What a combo!) Has anybody actually tried the thai food? Is it good? How are the prices? Thanks for any information!
Anyone ever been to Pawana in Englewood? It's in the old Thai Chef space, gorgeous place, but it's ALWAYS empty. How do they persist in business?
