Baltimore's original Thai Restaurant is arguably its best, providing lightening-fast service whether carrying food out or dining in the pleasant pink room decorated with Thai paintings.
The greatest artistry, however, will be found on your plate -- beautifully garnished, crisp-tender combinations of vegetables, meats and spices and none of the heavy, gelatinous sauces that are found in many Chinese restaurants. At lunch, $6.75 will buy you a winning combination of soup, any stir fried chicken, beef, or shrimp dish on the lunch menu, with a crisp egg roll and Thai fried rice.
