I begin to wonder how many people pad Tripadvisor ratings? I mean, and no offense, but a donut shop should not be rated on the same list as a sit down restaurant. I won't comment on the current 2nd place other than the service was really poor (as of Sept 2012).
That leaves me with Shallot Thai. Probably in the top 5 independent (not a chain) restaurants in West Springfield. Great Service, great food, incredible value for the money and ok ambiance. But we go for the food. The presentation was wonderful too.
For starters we had Chicken Satay (marinated chicken then grilled on skewers, served with peanut sauce and cucumber sauce)and Mango Roll (mango, cucumber, vermicelli, carrot, basil leaves and chop iceberg lettuce wrapped in rice paper), both had incredible flavor and taste.
I selected Pik King Curry Chicken for my entree and it was a treat! Pad Thai (with Chicken only) was the other one and half came home since the serving was decently large.
Thai custard was shared and a delightful way to end the meal.
So if you tire the the one million Italian restaurants found on every corner, try this Thai one for a change of pace.
