I love Thai food! These are common Thai dishes that are lower in calories that I have enjoyed:
Salad roll (sometimes called Imperial roll) they are wrapped with uncooked rice paper, have rice noodles, usually shrimp,slice of turkey, bean sprouts and fresh basil or cabbage inside - you could ask them to make them with more veggies and less noodles for less calories. The peanut sauce that comes with them is very high in calories and sugar so I would avoid that.
Tom Yum Soup is a traditional soup with chicken, mushrooms, bamboo shoots and onions - an Asian version of good old chicken soup - very flavorful and spicy.
Pad Prik is stir fried vegetables with water chesnuts in mildly spicy Thai seasonings. Try and get steamed brown rice with it if possible.
Papaya Salad is shredded papaya with tomatoes, lime zests and coarsely chopped cabbage with a oil/vinegar type dressing that is very spicy.
Any curries with coconut milk and noodle dishes definitely have lots of calories so I would avoid those. Hope this helps. Also don't be afraid to explain to your wait staff your dietary needs, especially if it is a mom/pop type place, they are very eager to please and have your business again.
