I'm really impressed with the Thai food here.  At first, Chang Thai was the only place we'd go then we tried Bua Hana when it opened and really enjoyed it.  Now we alternate between the two.  Chang Thai is so hard to beat since the lady always remembers us and what we order even if it's a few months between visits.  Haven't tried Yum Thai (I think?) and only went to Coral a couple times and thought it was just okay.

I'm a vegetarian so I don't eat sushi but my husband does and he really likes it there.  I was reading their (Bua Hana's) reviews on yelp and there are a fair amount of negative ones (mainly because of the service which honestly we've never had an issue with) but it's still definitely worth checking out.  I really like their egg rolls.

Don't they make vegetarian entrees in sushi? I work with some vegans and they get sushi (there's a restaurant across from our building as well as once a week our cafeteria brings in sushi 'chefs').

If you stray into Berwyn Bodhi Thai is excellent as well.  I've had several of their sausages as well as pad see ew. 

And our own Yum Thai has a mean duck curry.

Although I live by and love Bodhi (even better eating in), there's still a place in my tummy for Yum Thai.  Love that place.  I'm one who likes sweet style Thai, and they'll make some dishes that are like candy... like eating dessert for dinner. Smile

That duck curry does sound interesting, though.

Yeah I think they do.  The California roll, maybe?  I don't know, sushi has just never been appealing to me for some reason.  I also absolutely love Chang Thai and try to go once every week or two.  Mmmmm...

Yeah Chang Thai is my favorite too. If you eat in it is nicer looking and WARMER than Mama Thai and the one by the car wash (Yum Thai?) And you can have a beer. The car wash one has great ginger tea though and Mama Thai  has great sorbets, real mango and coconut, etc. But Chang has the best overall pad kee mao.
