Out in Bellevue, WA last week and noticed there were a lot of Thai restaurants. Who knew? I chose Nibbana cause it kind of stuck out for me. Here they use the winning Thai Restaurant + Design = Lounge-y Thai Restaurant formula I seriously felt like I was back in NY. Yep, they got the endless downtempo beat tracks playing on the sound system. No DJ booth or reflecting pool though, but hey this ain’t Williamsburg. They do have the low voltage light spots and a clean minimalist interior design that would even make Mies van der Rohe happy. As for the food, I think Mies would also be pretty cheery. I ordered a Penang Chicken and it was served in an enourmous terrine with large chucks of grilled chicken breast. The curry was little on the sweet side (I ordered a medium spicy level) but the basil and the coconut milk were not overpowering. I was too full to enjoy any of the desserts such as Fried Vanilla Ice Cream with Strawberry Sauce, or the Mango Sticky Rice. Anyhow the next time you are let down by the waitresses at Joey’s in Bellevue, you can still relax in style at Nibbana and enjoy some good Thai food. LOL
