My husband & I really enjoyed our first visit to Plearn in Walnut Creek. We had read that they're always busy, and I can see why! We dropped in on a weeknight and waited for a few minutes for a table. The food was great! He had yellow chicken curry and I had pad thai (Pat Thai on their menu.) Great sauces, textures, seasonings. The staff was very busy but courteous. Not sure how many cooks are in the kitchen; it took a little while for us to get our food but we'd ordered the ghio-krob appetizer, which tided us over till then. The appetizer (fried won-ton stuffed with potato, corn, onion & curry powder, served with a unique sweet-n-sour sauce) was delicious and the sweet-n-sour sauce seemed made from scratch using honey. It was light brown, clear, and a far cry from the red sugary gunk many restaurants serve. We would definitely go back and sample more dishes there again!
