Arrived at 7 pm on a Saturday, without a reservation, and we snagged a table for five right away. Brookside Thai is a bustling, nicely decorated, storefront space with a mix of families and couples.
Fresh and flavorful food. Very good spring rolls and curry puff appetizers. The sauces are not too heavy and the spice is under control, but I’m sure you can ask for spicier. My wife loved the Gang Ped Yang, sliced duck in a red curry – coconut milk broth with tomatoes, pineapple and grapes. The Mus Munn Curry (coconut milk with cashew nuts) is also good. The sauce on my son’s sweet and sour beef was light, not cloyingly heavy. My spicy beef noodles were very good, even a bit sweet. The engaging hostess suggested tasty BBQ pork for our 6-year-old.
