One of the best things about Thai food as opposed to what is served at the typical and numerous Chinese restaurants in the area is that you can actually taste the ingredients in the food that you are ordering. Many Chinese restaurants tend to over-sauce their food, making entrees sometimes indistinguishable from one another. Once you try Thai food, ordering Chinese take-out might take a back seat provided that you are adventurous enough to entertain some different spice sensations such as an assortment of curries, chili paste, lemon grass, etc.
My wife and I have taken out and dined at Ridgewood Thai many times including just recently. The food here is good and you can actually taste the vegetables, meats, seafood and other ingredients in the dishes. The sauces and spices don't over power the food. Even the entrees that are stated on the menu to be hot and spicy are not so. If you like some heat in your food, then let the service staff know. A favorite dish of ours to split as an appetizer is the Hai Lum, which is available with chicken, beef or pork. We always get it with chicken. It consists of stir-fried flat rice noodles with egg and sauteed in sesame oil. My personal favorite dish is the Golden Nest, which is stir-fried chicken with chilli-garlic paste, cashew nuts, pinapple chunks, carrots, onion, pepper & celery served in a crispy golden nest, which I think is made of rice. Order it "spicy" if you want a little "kick" to it. Friends and family that I recommended this dish to loved it!
If you are ordering take-out from this restaurant, no problem. If you plan on dining there, it's a very small place. So, call ahead for reservations, especially on weekends. It's also BYOB. The menu is fairly extensive with lots of different selections to choose from.
