Thaiphoon (Palo Alto)
543 Emerson Street, Palo Alto, CA 94301
Thaiphoon, located in downtown Palo Alto and in San Jose, offers vibrant Thai and Pan-Asian cuisine. Our executive chef makes all of our sauces from scratch, using the freshest of ingredients, ensuring there is no MSG worry at Thaiphoon. Enjoy eating in our beautiful dining room, or dine al fresco in our outdoor seating area. Covered with a protective awning, and kept warm via heat lamps for year-round comfort, our outdoor area makes one feel like they are dining in paradise. The gentle sound of water flowing from our Buddha fountain creates a serene atmosphere.
No matter how nice the ambiance, the most important part of any dining experience is, of course, the food. Thaiphoon strives to be the best at everything we do. While our menu presents primarily Thai cuisine, our chef has created some dishes that are a unique fusion of different cultures.
One of our specialties is our leg of lamb, which is braised with fresh spinach, ginger, and garlic, and cubed into tender, moist morsels. We have roast duckling, simmered in a red curry sauce with pineapple and eggplant. For milder tastes, we recommend our giant sauted prawns, delicately seasoned with black pepper and garlic. Vegetarians will have no problem finding something that appeals to them. Our crispy fried tofu, simmered in coconut milk and curry, is sure to satisfy. Each of our entres are also available as a full meal. For a small additional price, add our soup of the day, a house salad with a mild peanut curry sauce, and a side of rice.
We are also the only Thai restaurant in Palo Alto sporting a full liquor license, enabling us to create fantastically fun cocktails for you. Both Locations of Thaiphoon are open seven nights a week for dinner, and we serve our special luncheon menu Monday through Saturday. Hope to serve you soon!
