I've now eaten at Spin Thai 5 times and have not once been disappointed by the food. There has not been one dish I wouldn't recommend. I'm working my way through the menu. I love the 'spin' on traditional thai - the same majical flavors you love in thai food - the curry, thai basil, coconut, lemon grass, kaffir -just spun in a modern way combining perfect amount of heat and texture . The presentation is matches the flavor - served up beautifully.
Here are a few of my faves: popcorn escolar, the saba mi krop (moked norwegian mackerel), Salmon Tataki (bursts of citrus freshness), tiger cry...and one of the best desserts I've ever had - the coconut panna cotta. The panna cotta is perfectly made, light, airy and the subtle coconut flavor combined with the ginger consomme, pecans, lemon is an award winning combo.
For drinks - the cucumber sake is the bomb. It's fused in house. Ok, so maybe the cups are a bit small. :-)
Ok, the 'strip mall' location isn't ideal, it's not the most romantic venue, but put a blind eye to that and make it a regular stop. i'd like to keep this restaurant around, the food rivals anything fancy downtown, in my opinion it's worth the drive from wherever you are.
