Back from your holiday trip to Thailand and missing that great cuisine? This restaurant located on the 100 ft. Food Avenue of Indiranagar is sure to please the Indian palate.
An air-conditioned indoor section has a bar in one corner and a wood + pebble walkway that leads you to the outside area where smoking is permitted. While the going is good and before global warming kicks up a notch here in namma Bengaluru, this should be your preferred seating area. A large Buddha is the centre piece here and the tables are not too close to each other, permitting a cosy tete-a-tete.
Start off with the Thai ginger blast drink @ 150-galangal ginger, mint, lime and pineapple juice. Very refreshing on a summer afternoon. The menu is concise (thankfully) and prices are classified in versions of prawns, chicken and vegetable. Begin with the grilled mushrooms @195 and the zingy tom kha soup @ 195/175/145, made with coconut milk, makrut leaves, coriander roots, galangal ginger and chillies. Vegetarians must try the banana leaf wrapped tofu or the stir-fried vegetables in roasted chilli paste, Lemongrass and makrut leaves@ 245. Crispy pork in chilli plum sauce@ 325 and Phad Thai@ 225-275 are the other specials. New on the menu is tod man pla @ 325, the ever popular Thai fish cakes (read cutlets), well-seasoned and bursting with flavour. The curries @ 245-425 are made with freshly extracted coconut milk. A buffet lunch option@ 399 on week days with over 22 dishes is very popular with the office crowd and executives of south east Asian origin.
The unobtrusive and attentive wait staff is trained to answer questions relating to ingredients and that is always a good sign.
PLUS and MINUS
The management has consciously chosen to tweak the recipes for the majority of its customers. However if you are a seasoned Thai food addict, you can always ask them to serve you chillies in nam pla, a fish sauce which is the hallmark of Thai cuisine. The chef would do well to add more lime juice in many of the dishes.

it was just a coincidence that we went High On Thai. we around 6 people where roaming around and were starving. one of my friends said lets try thai and we landed here. i was really impressed. the ambiance of the restaurant is really nice, striking and adorned. i like the buddha statue kept in the centre and wooden décor was really mesmerizing. service was another thing of which i was so impressed. waiters were fast and friendly. they were well-mannered and aware with the fares. we ordered thai ginger blast drink, chilli plum sauce, thai fish cakes and curries. food was all delicious and well-cooked. i like the place and will certainly recommend to everybody.
