The room is small but so dimly lit and romantic, you could conceivably bring a date here. Looking at this rarely traversed strip mall in the rarely traversed town of Lake Forest, you wouldn't have thought something like this could exist here, much else thrive. But the single cook that works in a kitchen smaller than your apartment's produces Thai dishes that can compete with the Thai Nakorns. This is serious Thai cooking for serious Thai food enthusiasts. The variety of dishes he offers in a never-ending menu is staggering. From the simplest tofu soup to the elaborate fried pomfret with a pork-ginger stir fry, Tasty Thai overachieves. Even the dessert of coconut ice cream and fried banana is extraordinary, with three kinds of banana and served a-flambe.
