Talay Thai Cuisine has become part of our regular lunch time rotation. Located in a strip mall, at the corner of Satellite Boulevard and Old Peachtree Road, they’re in a location that is about to get a BP next door. That will make an already challenging parking situation even more complicated. One of the guys that I work with is a Talay super star – he’s been eating there for years and all of the servers know him. I try to go with him as often as possible <g>.
They have standard Thai fare (drunken noodle, pad thai, pad prik king, curries, etc) along with an abbreviated (American) Chinese menu – pepper steak, Mongolian beef, etc. – at lunch. Lunches are served with either a spring roll or soup and the Chinese dishes come with rice. The soup is a very sparse version of tom yum soup.
At dinner, the menu becomes much more expansive. On this visit, I chose drunken noodles,
which I ordered without broccoli or onion. And, on the spicy side. The thing with “heat” here is very situational. Some times, four peppers is perfect – other times it will take the top of your head off.
It’s not the best Thai food that I’ve eaten, but it is definitely the best Thai food near the office, and it is always quick. The “Chinese” menu even allows us to take those who aren’t fond of Thai cuisine. That’s enough to bring us back once every couple of weeks.
