For a while now I have wanted to check out a fairly new Thai Restaurant in my home town. (From what I gather they used to be in Newburyport, MA prior to Hampton, NH.) I've never had Thai food so I thought it would be nice to broaden my dining. Since I had the day off and my boyfriend works up the street, lunch would be a perfect time.
The restaurant is lovely....walking in, it was very appealing and had a classic and modern mix. Seating was ample. There was only one other couple there since was it early lunch time. The waiter was very friendly. Every thing was very clean although I didn't use the bathroom.
I don't recall the name of the dish my boy friend ordered. It had a very charming peanut sauce on it. It had the slightest hint of heat. His veggies were very fresh and crisp. When he was done, the plate was clean, he liked it! I ordered a dish they call "GARLIC". It had chicken and shrimp mixed with mushrooms and carrots over a bed of cold lettuce. I know that even being a home cook, things can wilt and other things can come out too mushy. This dish was anything BUT that! Mine was fresh and crisp. The chicken and shrimp were both very tender and not dried out.
We both ordered a lunch dish and a hot green tea. The total came to $22 and some change. I thought that was very reasonable. When we were leaving, I told the man who served us that I had never had Thai food before. He laughed and said that this was only the tip of the iceberg. And indeed, he is right! I will certainly be returning there and look forward to telling others about Bai Cha Thai Restaurant.
