I love Thai food, and a friend of mine who lives in the Brookline area suggested that we have lunch at Khao Sarn. I am glad we did. The restaurant itself is very attractive, spacious, and aesthetically-pleasing. But it's the food that keeps the locals coming back. I ordered duck choo chee and my friend ordered a chicken and pineapple dish, and both were excellent. Large portions, flavorful, and the sauces complemented but did not overpower the food. I was especially pleased with the duck-- the meat was tender, not fatty, and as I said, the restaurant does not scrimp on portion-size, so I had plenty to eat.
We also shared an appetizer of crab rangoon, which was tasty, although not a stand-out. But the entrees made up for that; and the portions were so big that neither of us wanted dessert. We did want drinks however, and that turned out to be a problem. While I can and will praise the food, the service was indifferent. I asked for Thai coffee (a favorite of mine) and the server did not bring it until I asked two more times. My friend had the same problem persuading the server to bring tea. But perhaps we just came on a bad day-- even the best restaurants have them. And the food itself was so good that I am very willing to give Khao Sarn another try.
