Looking for Amazing Thai near Edison / Metuchen, NJ

Can anyone recommend a good thai restaurant near Metuchen, Nj. I've tried Radhana , Sawadee (before it became an Irish Pub), and Thai Basil, as well as fusion resturants like Penang and Meemah. For Thai food, Radhana has been the best by far, but I'd like to find another option that is equally good or better. I live in Metuchen which is near Edison NJ.

I would appreciate if you have any recommendations of good Thai restaurants that are up to 15 - 20 minutes from Metuchen, NJ?

  1. Pad Thai in Highland Park .

    1. Haven't been to Radhana for years. It used to be a favorite for a quick lunch.

      I suggest you drive over to Woodbridge and try Mie Thai. It used to be very good - and hopefully still is - but because Rhadana was closer we would go there more often.

          1. This is the place you want then. Four Seasons on Stelton Rd in Piscataway.

            1. Second both Pad Thai and Four Seasons mentioned here by other posters. They are owned by the same people but different and both quite good and will provide any amount of heat that you request.

                  Somebody should write a review, "Four Seasons Thai Cuisine and Oriental Grocery" isn't coming up in the autocomplete feature.

              1. Head North a few exits on the GSP and try Thailand Restaurant in Clark. Excellent Thai in a converted diner car. BYO.

                  Couldn't agree with you more, this is THE Thai place to go, extremely authentic food and genuinely nice people running/owning the place AND it's a BYO to boot!

                  1. re: EthnicNJ

                    Heh, when this place first opened I walked in and asked for some Pad Thai Curry to go, and they didn't even really understand me. So you know it is authentic if they need you to point to something on the menu. It was good, too.

                  2. Radhana is good but last time I went there, their portion sizes seemed to have gotten smaller. Recently I've been going to Thai Thai (formerly Amarin) next to ShopRite on Old Post Road in Edison.

                        i second thai thai in edison, i believe the owners are related to the thai basil owners in piscataway though i think thai thai is better.

                        1. re: cling0017

                          Ate at Thai Basil last month. Nothing special at all. Third try in a couple of years and it's off the list. I've dined at Mie Thai a number of times and it's pretty good. Nice room etc.

                          My 'go to' remains Four Seasons. Simple, great food. Though I will try the one up in Clark if I'm in the area.
