Pin Kaow has nice lunch specials. ^^

I really enjoyed Archis, and thank everyone for the suggestions. I hope to try the other places mentioned as well.

How about Basil 'n Lime on Ft. Apache just off Spring Mountain? Or... Aranya Thai Bistro off of Flamingo and Grand Canyon? I don't think either of them get enough credit. Both very good Thai places.

Basil N Lime is good too, not as popular as Archi's. Both Basil and Aranya are in Spring Valley, love my community.

If you don't mind me asking, what did you order @ Archi's? I like Panang (thick Curry/Coconut sauce), my friend loves Ginger Ginger. Their Beef Salad is good as well. One order of their dinner entree is enough for at least 2 adults. Nice size portion at affordable prices.

I played it safe and ordered the Pad Thai, though I was eyeballing the Panang curry dish. One of my dinner companions got Pad Thai as well- we should have just shared it as neither of us ate a quarter of our dishes. Huge portions. Good thing I have a son who will happily gobble all leftovers.

One of my other companions got soup, and a pork dish with white rice. It was a nice dinner. They had Hofbrauhaus hefeweizen (German wheat beer) which was unusual, and welcome.

I've found that Pad Thai is a good measure of how everything else is going to taste. If the Pad Thai is mediocre everything else will be as well.

I find the opposite to be true. I do like Pad Thai, but it's so basic that I feel it's hard to mess up. I try drunken noodles or rad-nah if I want a noodle dish or something like ka-phrao if I want stir fry. I am also very picky about spring rolls, so that will give me a good indication on how good a place is.

Of course I am going to have to get Thai food for dinner tonight now!

Most Thai dishes are super simple especially the curry based ones. There's probably the same or a greater number of ingredients in Pad Thai than the noodle dishes you mentioned. Of course I love Pad Thai and there's a lot of flavorless, bland dishes being served out there.

Another super easy one is Tom Kah Gai. With the ingredients from an asian market - especially oyster mushrooms that I cant seem to find elsewhere - you can make that in about 10 minutes. There is absolutely no difference from what you're getting in a restaurant.

IME Pad Thai tastes the same almost anywhere I have tried it, but the other dishes seem to vary. Pad Thai is a safe bet if you are unsure of the rest of the menu as it is usually the same everywhere.
