A handy midtown stop for pad Thai and other Thai takeout staples, Ban Thai also features a large, comfortable dining room and attentive waitstaff. The mee krob appetizer, built on sweet, crispy noodles hiding large shrimp, works well as a topping for other mild dishes like pad king (noodles with lean slices of beef) and pad see-ew (noodles stir-fried with chicken and broccoli). More complex[vegetarian] sweet-sour-peanut mixtures are well-prepared and artfully arranged. Go for the gaeng goong (curried shrimp in coconut milk) for a hot time. Both Thai and Long Island iced teas are available to cool the palate.

"Outstanding Sushi, Japanese, Thai and Asian Cafe in Columbia area. Fine dinning room offer cold, warm, hot sake and beer, wine, liquor. The daily chef special running thr the dinning room in addition of happy hour buy one get one free liquor drink offer. I would say it's a nice plcae to try out."
From the soups to the desserts, Hamilton's best-kept secret has long been a favorite for the poor-yet-Thai-hungry crowd. Don't let the takeout image fool you; with spicy rich dishes such as pad Thai, panang, and a plethora of curries, Chok Chai is a must for anybody.
This double-duty restaurant serves both Thai and Japanese cuisine (including sushi), which is great if you're open to inspiration but a bit of a chore if you're trying to make up your mind. Located in a Canton strip mall, the restaurant does most things passably well--Thai food feels freshly spiced (if a bit sugary and short on chile fire), and the sushi combinations display some obvious skill--but it's hard to find one thing that it does with excellence. Photos of grateful, smiling regulars testify that persistent diners find their way, but newcomers will have to grasp around a little. Low prices and the free-and-ready parking help tip the scales in its favor.
Thai Arroy is the prettiest little storefront Thai restaurant you ever did meet. The smartly costumed servers and decorative touches, like elaborate cloths placed under glass-topped tables, help distract from the reality that the food is just shy of greatness. The vegetables are pleasurably crisp, and the larb, a cold peppery beef salad finished off with fresh mint, is excellent, but meals are often too mild. Still, Thai Arroy is a favorite spot for affordable lunch specials. For dinner, try the ped chu-chee, perfect duck topped with chile paste in coconut milk. BYOB.

Spicy or mild, meaty or meatless, there are plenty of choices. Don't neglect appetizers such as rice cakes with minced shrimp and chicken in peanut-coconut-cream sauce, or crispy fried catfish meat with onions, peanut, and ginger. There are nicer dining rooms you'd rather spend time in, though.
Baltimore is fortunate to have an array of above-average Thai restaurants, but spunky, funky little Thai One On stands out for its especially authentic flavors. The kitchen sticks to traditional Thai preparations, turning out dishes with pure flavors and plenty of chile heat. The incendiary goong ma now (shrimp marinated with lime and lethal little Thai peppers) and the green papaya salad are two extra-spicy favorites, followed by succulent and soothing sweet black rice with young coconut.

Yes, it's the event that Baltimore's hardcore gamblers, horse racing fans and alcoholics all love. The second race in the Triple Crown is only about one minute's worth of excitement, but the entire day is chock full of sinful activities, from betting on the horses to the debauchery in the infield. Pitbull and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis will perform, which is cool, we guess?
