Thaiku is one of the best Thai restaurants in Seattle. First of all, their dishes are great and really unique…each one is a slight departure from the standard Thai fare that seems to be available every strip mall in America these days. The atmosphere is terrific, particularly in the little bar area in the back which is also known as “Fu Kun Wu,” has a separate entrance, and is decorated to resemble an Asian apothecary shop. The premise is a bit dicey, I realize, but the drinks are great. A few of them contain “ancient medicinal herbs” and the bar will only serve one per customer, due to their mood enhancing effect! Thiaku definitely enhances my mood, every time!
