Thana Thai Kitchen Arlington

Thana Thai Kitchen in Arlington opened recently in the space vacated by Lady Siam, another Thai restaurant. It can't be the location that causes all these restaurants to fail in this location since Toraya next door has been here forever and Blue Ribbon BBQ just up the street is an institution.

They have big windows and plenty of parking behind the restaurant.

Interior is a bit drab, no table cloths, no flowers and no decorations, but it's bright and clean.

I ordered an appetizer, Curry Puff ($7). Chicken, onion and potato served with a cucumber relish. There was nothing puffy about these rock hard puffs and the filling had just traces of chicken and a very faint curry taste.

I also ordered Drunken Noodles ($10). Stir-fried wide rice noodles with baby corn, carrot, bell pepper, string bean and black fungus in spicy basil sauce. First of all, this arrived at the same time as the appetizer, whar are they thinking about and it wasn't just me either, a table next to me had the same thing happening. This was a pretty good rendering of this classic dish and it comes out about medium spicy and that was fine. I like the fresh green peppercorns and the black fungus. I could do without the canned baby corn and the chunky pieces of carrots. One big drawback here is that they don't have any lunch specials, they have some lunch combos, but they are in the $12 range, so if you are looking for some reasonable priced Thai food for lunch, this is not the place. No ambiance and too expensive for lunch.
