Thai Greenleaf

We did take-out from this place the other night. It was my first experience with this restaurant, and I've had very limited experience with Thai food in general. I really enjoyed our dinner.

Our meal began with an assortment of appetizers and dipping sauces. We had mini spring rolls - crispy goodness with sweet orange sauce similar to Chinese duck sauce. Chicken satay -- skewers of chicken with a thick, flavorful peanut sauce. Curry samosas - triangles of fried dough stuffed with a spicy curry, a little too spicy for my taste.

Next we had whole red snapper - filleted, breaded and fried, and served with a sauce similar to Chinese sweet and sour sauce.

The shrimp fried rice -- only vaguely similar to Chinese or Japanese fried rice, it contained chunks of pineapple and had a very sweet taste.

Ginger duck - a stir fried dish with lots of vegetables and a sweet sauce.

Chicken Pad Thai - rice noodles, chicken and vegetables stir fried in a savory brown sauce.

We also ordered a spicy chicken and cashew dish, but I didn't taste that. My friend was very happy with her Thai iced tea -- an interesting blend of teas and coconut milk.

Small complaint - when packing our order they forgot one item, necessitating a second trip to the restaurant to retrieve it, but they were very apologetic about it.

I would definitely order from this place again.

I didn't realize that I'd been cooking Thai recipes for a while (some carry over from the meal prep place), but we've been going for Thai for about a year and a half.

Love Thai fried rice and green or red curry. If they do Laab na, give that a try next time. :)
