I was happy to finally get a chance to try out the Thai Thai restaurant in Ypsilanti this week. I had heard several people comment on the good quality of their food and had seen a lot of positive reviews online as well. In past attempts to call in a carryout order they were closed, but the other night I was finally successful!
I chose the #17 – Gai Pad Prig Haeng, or cashew chicken. My dinner included white rice, grilled chicken breast, chili peppers, green and white onion in a sweet and salty brown sauce. I am sort of a connoisseur of cashew chicken at Thai restaurants, it’s my favorite dish. This one stacked up quite well. My favorite is still Lotus Thai in Ann Arbor, but this one was pretty similar. The flavors in the sauce were like the one at Lotus, but the dish was missing mushrooms, which I really like and may request next time I order it at Thai Thai. Although the single asterisk on the menu next to the dish number indicates it to be “mild” I’d argue that it may be a medium spice level for the non-experienced. Personally, I enjoyed the spiciness.
I found it a little odd that they don’t give potential customers easy access to their carryout menu. The links in this blog post will take you to their menu on Facebook but I found even that hard to find initially and they don’t have a website. When I picked up my order I asked for a take-out menu, but they don’t have one available and just mentioned that its available online. So, if you’re interested in trying them out, click one of the links in this post to find Thai Thai’s online menu and don’t give up if the first few times you call they are closed despite the early hour. My first taste says it’s worth the effort.
