Phuket Thai: Best of the Beach 2018 Thai, Southeast Asian


Even in the fast-moving South Bay restaurant scene, some things don’t change. Phuket Thai has won or been a close second in this category for over a decade. It certainly isn’t their location, which is in a nondescript multi-use building and lacks the gaudy architecture of Southeast Asia. Their curries have the characteristic Thai balance between heat, tartness, herbal fragrance, and richness, their salads burst with citrus, basil, garlic, and freshness. Thai cooking has changed the way Americans perceive flavor, and Phuket Thai leads the way in the South Bay.
