Thai Fresh is the restaurant you wish was within walking distance of your house, so that any night when you didn’t feel like cooking, you could just eat here instead. This place is super laid back and the staff is overly friendly to everyone who walks in - regular or not. Besides the usual suspects like curries and pad Thai, they also serve a few specialty dishes that you won’t find anywhere else in the city, like khao kaa moo (five spice pork over rice). So regardless of whether you’re looking for comfort food or want to try something new, Thai Fresh has you covered.
