Zesty Thai Bistro recently opened in a strip mall in one of Anaheim's more prestigious neighborhoods. Interestingly, this is the first restaurant opened by a group of friends who've all worked "for" other Thai restaurants but never owned their own. I've now been there twice, once for take-out and once to eat in. The selections and quality of all the food I've tried has been excellent! They do wonderful curry's and have a wide range of noodle and rice dishes. The appetizers are creative (try the Money Bags!) and their sauces are not overly spicy trying to dominate their flavors. I only found two areas needing attention. They still don't have their ability to "pace" the orders down -- the kitchen got bogged down when we ate in as it tried to process a bulk of take-out orders. And, my #1 complaint with these types of restaurants is, PLEASE know that not everyone wants the plain rice you serve with every dish. People WILL ASK if they can substitute (and pay) for something with more flavor. Currently, Zesty Thai does not allow for that substitution (yet when we were there no only did we ask but also the table next to use). Fixing these two items will make Zesty Thai the new MUST GO TO place in Orange County!
