thai in the village
All my favorite Thai restaurants are disappearing or declining -- I need a new one, moderately priced, between about Wash Square and Union Square river to river. Thoughts?
I have and still do love Holy Basil, 149 2nd Ave (btw 9th & 10th Sts). My family and I, 12 of us, dined there this past Saturday night. I especially enjoyed their curry duck, which was tender and the sweetness of the lychee and pineapple complemented the red curry, fried whole fish, which was perfectly cooked, and chicken with cashew nuts, mushrooms and bamboo shoots, which had a great balance of ingredients.
Their food is consistently good. I've always enjoyed a meal there!

Laut is Malaysain, but Thai sells so they have thai also. Do not go to Kobna on Hudson and Jane, they are Chinese and the food is bad. Toon's was great but moved from Bleecker to 29th and Park Ave south,,if your near there try it . Toon is a great cook of authentic Thai food.
Theres a place on 8th st between Christopher and 6th ave. that is pretty good and very reasonable. All the Thai places in Tribeca are gone except one on West Broadway called Mangez but they are from Laos and the food is mediocre. There's some decent Thai food in the east village,, and one on 8th ave and 22nd st.

I just found another ok place called Qi Restaurant. The menu seems to be pan Asian, which is not usually a good sign, but Thai standards like drunken noodles are not badly done. All of their dishes do have a tendency towards being too sweet.
I love Rohm Thai - it's on 20th street just north of Union Square so maybe a bit outside of your range but it's always good.
