Thai Time

Where Paris - - Dining Restaurants -

With a kitchen run by a fe­male Thai chef named Jay and two French chefs who learned the coun­try’s cook­ing while work­ing at l’Ate­lier de Joël Robu­chon in Bangkok, Yaai Thai is a lively new restau­rant in the heart of Paris that spe­cialises in Thai street food. The idea of this ta­ble with a colour­ful dé­cor that re­calls the lit­tle stalls, which serve up fast, de­li­cious food along the streets of most large Thai towns, is to bring these richly flavoured and deeply sat­is­fy­ing dishes to Paris and pro­pose them at easy-on-the-wal­let prices. Over thir­ty­five dif­fer­ent dishes are avail­able on the menu, rang­ing from such clas­sics as Pad Thai, rice noodles sautéed in soy and tamarind sauce with your choice of prawns, beef, chicken or veg­eta­bles, to gaeng keow wan, a lus­cious green veg­e­tar­ian curry con­tain­ing beans, cour­gettes, red and green pep­pers, Thai aubergines, basil and bam­boo shoots, and lab nuea, which is Thai style steak tartare. - A.L.
