I have to start out by stating that the Thai dish I always get, and always will get, is Thom Ka Gai. A coconut-based milk soup with chicken, it's sweet with a little spice added by chilies and galangal (similar to ginger). It's how I judge any Thai restaurantand the Thom Ka Gai at the Lincoln Thai Talay is amazing.\r
Although my choice of Thai dishes is not always so diverse, my friends' dishes usually are. It's a great place for take-out or delivery and some nights while looking for something different to fill our bellies, we've pulled the Thai Talay menu off the fridge and gotten delivery. We have yet to have been disappointed.\r
The restaurant itself, however, is a great place to go in for a meal. Consistently, the staff has been courteous and attentive and in my few times to eat there, I've noticed the same cast of charactersalways a good sign in a local place.\r
Around the tables, Thai statuary and decor dots the wood interior and a giant aquarium full of tropical fish lit by purple-blue light sits at the center. At night, the subdued atmosphere provides a great place for a relaxing meal or a romantic dinner.
Pros: wonderful staff
Cons: potential parking problems on Lincoln
