“Inedible ground pork curry”
Review of Anise Thai

Anise Thai
Ranked #26 of 49 Restaurants in Mercer Island
Cuisines: Thai
Restaurant details
Reviewed April 22, 2012

We appreciated that this restaurant was open at 9:30pm on a Saturday night when many other places had already closed on Mercer Island. However, we won`t be back. My pad thai was ok but far far from the best I have ever had; with little pieces of chicken that had clearly been cooked who knows when. At a spice level of 3 out of 5, the spiciness was just right. My husband also ordered 3-level ground pork curry, which was completely inedible: both way too hot and just bad. We didn`t really understand the curry concept anyway, it comes as a soupy curry in a little bowl with completely unseasoned steamed vegetables and raw ones on the side and you have to order rice separately. We both agreed that there was no reason to go back there in the future.

Great to have a new Thai place here...and many of the offerings are unique to their family -- though it does offer a full range of regular items. Every dish we tried was fresh and delicious.

Absolutely the best Thai food we have eaten to include our stay in Bangkok. We had appetizers, salad, main dishes and dessert and they were pefectly prepared and presented. Highly recommended is the scallops with asparagus. Incredible! The decor is elegant without being gawdy. Our hostess and host were very gracious and polite as is the Thai custom. Anise Thai in Mercer Island is a destination.
