Thai cooking is uniquely different from other South East Asian cuisine. It is influenced by Chinese and Indian cuisine and has been modified with fresh local herbs and spices, combined to create many unique Thai dishes.
Thai cooking is an art form. The taste of each dish is of utmost importance. However, its preparation and presentation are of equal importance. The dishes must have the distinctive Thai taste. At the same time, they must be fragrant and colorful. When thinking about Thai food, the first thing that may come to mind is that Thai food is spicy hot, but that is not all it is about. Thai dishes must have the combined tastes of spiciness, saltiness, sweetness, sourness, and sometimes bitterness: creating a truly unique and, truly harmonious taste. The secret is in the ingredients.
Rice is the heart of meal in Thailand. It is the basis of our diet. At the dinner table, there may be as many as twenty courses, which included appetizers, soup, vegetables, meat, and fish dishes served with a hot plate of rice. And here at Bahn Thai, we are proud to say, “We do not use MSG.”
We have been serving authentic Thai cuisine at Bahn Thai since 1984 – the oldest Thai restaurant in Seattle. We do our very best to bring you excellence in all aspects of our food and service. We will continue to do so now and in the future. Thank you very much.
