About a year or so ago, my boyfriend and I stumbled into this tiny little restaurant. The atmosphere was amazing! The lighting, the decor, and the music all blended well together for a very welcoming environment. The staff was wonderful. They were very attentive to us, and made sure to get our order correct, including my very picky tastes. When we got our food I was just absolutely amazed. Small restaurants like this, in my experience, usually have decent food, but nothing to write home about. Takeda Thai has what I would easily call 5-star restaurant quality food. Not something I was expecting coming into my first meal there.
Since then my boyfriend and I have brought several of our family and friends there. Both for dinner and for lunch. Every time we bring someone they come back or ask when we will take them again. We have had time to try a variety of things on the menu, and have never found a dish we didn't love! (Though I will admit that the Pad Thai is definitely my favorite!).
We got to know the owners, a very wonderful couple that take an active role in their business. And knowing them has only made us want to eat there more! They have an herb garden right out front, and if you are there at the right time you can watch them gather herbs from it to use in the dishes that day.
To those people, like my boyfriend, who cannot seem to find food that is spicy enough wherever they may go. Takeda Thai is willing to go far beyond their 1-5 scale to find a level that appeases you. He ordered a Curry with a 45 rating on it today! What impressed him was that they were able to increase the heat level without sacrificing any of the flavor. The dish did not become so focused on the heat that it couldn't still taste enjoyable.
