I wouldn’t have believed that East Brookfield would be a place where you’d find very good, authentic Thai cuisine, but here it is, a little hole-in-the-wall restaurant named Thai House. Granted, the décor leaves a lot to be desired---gaudy embroidered elephant tapestry runners adorning each table but little else in the small space containing maybe a dozen or so tables.
Arriving at about 5:45 p.m., my companion and I were promptly seated a table for two and started with cocktails: a Pearl Harbor, a tasty concoction of vodka, Midori liqueur and pineapple juice, and a standard Mai Tai, each priced very reasonably at $5.95 and $6.50, respectively. Each was potent enough and very refreshing.
Thai House’s menu has many options in the categories of appetizers, soups, salads, fried rice, noodles, curries, house specialties and traditional dishes. Gluten free options are also available. I had the Thai yellow curry with shrimp ($12.95) and my companion had the Pad Thai. Both dishes were very tasty and satisfying, the curry having the perfect amount of heat, spice-wise. The Pad Thai was typical, nothing really noteworthy. We also shared a plate of the evening’s special lobster fried rice (recommended by our server), rife with pieces of claw and knuckle meat (no chewy tail meat to contend with) and veggies, nicely seasoned. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Portions are ample to say the least and we were quite full (to-go containers for the lot), but found room to share the Ice Cream Sampler ($5.00). A small scoop each of coconut, ginger, green tea and vanilla ice cream were nicely presented on a long white plate. Our favorite was the coconut, it being the most intense-flavored of the four.
Our server, Anne, was helpful, friendly, and efficient, our entrees and check arriving in a timely manner. We’ll be back again soon to sample more of Thai House's interesting dishes.
