Yes. I've heard that too but haven't tried it yet. Been to Bombay Garden? Also excellent.

Burnt Almond Cake

You don't have to get it as long as I do. Ordinary can also be delicious. I find grilled salmon pretty ordinary.

Tried the palak paneer at Udupi? It might change your mind.

Burnt Almond Cake

I've tried them all but I prefer the vanilla. The chocolate and the marble didn't do chocolate justice

Zen Yai Thai -- anyone tried this place?

Yes I've been there for lunch several times now. I'm sold on their lunch combo #3 yellow curry chicken and spicy chicken. I just wish I could get them to make the chicken even spicier!

Do you like Indian? Udupi Palace is the best vegeterian indian I've ever had. Or if you prefer Japanese Cha-ya which is vegan japanese. I'm not vegeterian but these are 2 of my favorites

Thai "Spicy Chicken" in SF or East Bay?

Hey, Does anyone out there have restaurant recommenations for thai spicy chicken? I'm talking about well seasoned minced chicken with jalapenos and basil. Not sure if this is the same as gai ka prow but I usually don't find this as well seasoned or with minced chicken. The best place I've had is at Siam Kitchen in SF on Sacramento and Montgomery. Anywhere else I can find it? It would be nice to have a place in Berkeley I can go but I've found nothing. Any help appreciated. Thanks

Le Regal on center and shattuck is pretty good for Vietnamese. Though I wanna try Vanessa's on Solano. Ruen Pair on San Pablo for Thai especially if you like spicy. Their spicy will make you sweat and tear. Get their medium if you want a managable level of spicy. I also like Plearn on University. Indian - Vik's, Udupi, Ajanta use to also like Cafe Raj but haven't been in ages.
