Thai Town Restaurant Review

On a trip down to San Jose, CA today to take care of some things, we decided to try out Thai Town Restaurant in Milpitas, CA.

We tried out a new Thai place located inside Milpitas Square (also known as McCarthy Ranch Marketplace). The place seemed to be clean and laid out nicely.

Andrea ordered the basil chicken (stir fried chicken with basil chili garlic) and I had the asparagus with beef (pan fried asparagus, beef with red bell pepper). Because we both don’t eat rice, we got the dinner plates. After we were ordered, the waitress brought out hot and sour soup which was good. The soup had two good size strips of chicken with small mushrooms and sliced onion.

The portion sizes of the two plates was generous, we both had enough to eat, plus enough to take home also. The basil chicken, we thought, was better than the aspargus beef. It had very generous portion of chicken chunks with mint leaves, onions, and of course the chili garlic sauce. It was definitely different when they brought out the basil chicken because we were normally accustomed to sliced strips of chicken, but rather these were little chicken chunks reminiscent of beef chunks they would put into Sloppy Joes. I think it made the basil chicken much easier to eat. The asparagus beef was decent. The beef was a bit dry, but the asparagus was good. We also asked for a side of the peanut sauce (since we both are big fans of Thai peanut sauce) and they gave us a generous helping in a small sauce bowl. The peanut sauce was ok, not spicy, and tasted like it had coconut milk in it.

I didn’t realize until after I had ordered and the waitress had left that they serve quail here. Would love to have tried it, since quail is one of my favorite dishes.

Each of our dinner dishes were $7.50 and with my Diet Coke, the total came out some $17 and odd cents. We left a $20 with their tip included in that.

We definitely would recommend this place to anyone in the area and looking for some Thai food.
