“So glad it's close to home!”
Review of Panisa Thai

Panisa Thai
Ranked #4 of 65 Restaurants in Burke
Restaurant details
Reviewed November 5, 2012

To celebrate a family birthday, we searched for a Thai restaurant near our new home. Recently arrived from out-of-state, we did not know there would be such a wonderful option so nearby. For just under $70 (including a 25% tip), four of us had a wonderful, flavorful meal, and experienced very good service. We ordered the Drunken Noodles, which were zing-y wide rice noodles. The green curry and the penang curry were spicy enough to keep it interesting but not enough to scare away those with a fainter palate. Finally, our vegetarian teenager cleared his plate of pad puk, tofu and veggies stir-fried in garlic and oyster sauce. My husband and I each enjoyed a Singha, which is the best accompaniment for Thai food. Next time around we would like to try the pad thai (which is, reportedly, so good it will ruin our expectations for pad thais in the future...) and pad see iew, another vegetarian staple. The only reason I have withheld a star in this rating is because we had a 15-20 minute wait for a table, but nobody came to ask us how many in our party, or to let us know the approximate wait. It felt awkward. But since none of the other guests in line appeared to be bothered by this, we chalk it up to being newcomers, and will remember in the future that we will be seated as tables are cleared, and that very attentive, courteous service awaits.

Good thai food, but menu is small. Most Thai restaurants have a larger menu. Very small and tends to get noisy during busy times.

Of appetizer, entree, salad, and dessert, the last was the best. Ok - the spring rolls were good, the glass noodle salad was wet and odd, the tofu and vegetable and rice was just below average...but the mango and sweet rice dessert was wonderful. Decor was relaxing, service was very good...we must have simply ordered the wrong meals.

Everything is great. Fresh and wonderful. Drunken noodles are great. Chicken satay appetizer could be a meal in itself and dO not miss the banana egg roll dessert. Yum!

Yum! Do you know how to find a good restaurant? If it's crowded, even on a weekday, chances are that it's pretty darn good. Try the drunken noodles. Ask for it to not be too hot (you can ask for any dish to not be spicy), because it may burn a little bit.
