The menu at this West Town spot, at sibling to Manee Thai #1 in Portage Park, features mostly Thai fare, including curries, noodle dishes, soups and Thai salads such as nam sod and yum woon sen, as well as a smattering of Chinese and Japanese favorites. Don't miss the meang khum appetizer (foldable lettuce leaves filled with toasted coconut, peanuts, dry shrimp, fresh ginger, shallots and lime), the authentic Thai curries and the house-made icy beverages in flavors such as watermelon, guava, and green tea and red bean. For dessert, try the cocobanana and pearls (banana pieces in warm coconut milk with tiny tapioca pearls). Service is efficient and prices very reasonable-most entrees are $8 or less, and the weekday lunch special, which includes soup and an appetizer, is just $6.50.
