Thaijindesu: Fusion Cuisine Adventure

April 1, 2014 2:13 pm

Often, when a restaurant features two distinct cuisines, one is done much better than the other. Thaijindesu is an exception to this rule. Whether you’re in the mood for a curry, some sushi, or both, you’ll leave full and happy. The space itself is a happy melding of styles – the gleaming sushi bar, the Thai cuisine accents, the modern space that manages to feel warm even painted in cool blues and greens. Repeat customers are especially fond of the lunch specials, delicious samplers of the best Thaijindesu has to offer. If you like to try a little of everything, the lunch specials are the way to go. For dinner, try a curry made as spicy or as mild as you like it – herby green curry or sweet yellow, made with your choice of protein, are especially good.
