Our group of 7 will meet at Hockessin Area for business next couple days. Some folks would like to try some Thai Food in the area--where we can get the standard Pad Thai and good Curries. Some Thai restaurants are suggested such as: Soybean and Pinang. Anyone has been to these 2 places and has some tips to share?

    Penang is much prettier and I think the food is a notch better.

      I agree that Pinang would be a better choice. I love their shrimp puffs as an appetizer. I have had a variety of things on the menu for entrees including their sushi and am usually quite pleased with the food. The setting is more intimate than Soybean. I also like Tasty Thai in New Castle but not for this occasion, for a casual lunch it would be good.

        We did choose Pinang and the food was excellent. Roti Canai is over the top, with great Chicken Currie on the side for dipping.
        Pai Thai was not bad, but I would rather have the bean sprout cooked with noodle, instead of serving raw, feel like it is Vietnamese style (IMO).

        We have heard a lot great words about Soybean’s Authentic Thai dishes while we were visiting Hockessin, will definitely try there next month.

        Soybean has great Thai food and service. I had different kinds of curry dishes, and they were just the right amount of spice. Menu is full of variety and not pricey.

            It is off Limestone Rd, in Pike Creek Shopping center. Same side of K-mart.
