Thanks for the input on the Thai restaurant. I do like curries, I like coconut. I went to one once and had a soup that was to die for, coconut based I'm sure and it had chicken. But we're going to a different restaurant..... I'll have to kind of wing it - but the satay sounds doable and I'll have a better idea when I see the menu too. But thanks for the suggestions and comments!!!

We have one Asian restaurant in our area and it is really good. They are a buffet and offer a little of everything.

I love Thai and eat it regularly. Normally I have the cashew or garlic and add chicken. The restaurant substitutes rice for additional veggies. mmmmmmmmmmmm.............

I wish we could get a restaurant like that around here.

The soups are good -- tom kha is coconut-based and you can usually get chicken or shrimp in it. Tom yum (I think it is) is more of a hot and sour type. Satay is a nice appetizer of skewered chicken served with a peanut sauce. Most of the curries should be OK, (I'm assuming you want to keep it low-carbish), although Massaman has potatoes in it. Depends on your heat tolerance, too, although some can be modified to your taste. I like the spicy basil preparations. Choice of protein and a fair amount of veggies.

Good job! I love a good hot and sour soup as long as they don't make it too thick with cornstarch. I'm doing Afghan food this Sunday. Their rice is really good, unfortunately...I'll have to look at my options.

Thank you all! I ended up having the Cashew Thai - it was really flavorful, but not very spicy. Rice was on the side of the plate and I just left it there. I also had the hot and sour soup which I think was pretty safe; no noodles. I am so glad that my carb cravings are pretty well gone and the rice was not even a temptation. I usually go for pad thai, and it was nice to try something different, and enjoy it without feeling like I was missing something.

All your suggestions sound good - I'll just have to convince her we need to go more often so I can try them all! ;-)

Gapow looked low carb, just have them put the rice seperate or tell them no rice.

Soup is good, dont eat the noodles. I always ask for the broth no noodles. add some veg in the soup, they have green things...lol, I like.

I've had spicy basil preparations a lot, and think they should work. The salads looked good, but the laab I think has ground toasted rice in it. Depending on your heat tolerance, it might be easier to avoid rice if your food isn't super spicy. I think the Thom Kha should be OK. I love the coconutty soups.

mmmm thai is one of my favs: most satays are fine although the chef may sneak a little sweetener in there but usually it is primarily coconut milk based. Ditto on the curries. The Thai Cashew/Spicy Basil/Spicy Peanut look fine and are garlic/soy based.

Enjoy and drink your water!

Thanks so much Tish! I was leaning toward the Thai Cashew or Spicy Basil but thought I would look to the experts for help! :-) Glad I am on the right track - the eating out is so much trickier.

To be honest I have never had Thai food but it will kind of depend on how it is prepared.

I would guess that crying tiger beef would be the best appetizer followed by chicken satay. The soups and salads don't sound too bad. I would avoid key words like sweet. I would lean toward the Thai Cashew, Spicy Basil, Spicy Peanut and avoid the rice. Some of the curries might be okay if they don't have added sugar. Ask the waiter how these dishes are prepared and make the best choice. Some places had nutritional info.

I'm sure someone else will know.

My oldest friend emailed me to meet her for lunch at our favorite Thai place. It's been several months since we've been able to get together, and I really need it.

Here is a link for their lunch menu -

I really have never thought about the best choices - any input would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks and have a great day everyone!
