I heart Araya's Lunch Buffet 12/27/2006

While dinner is hit or miss, the lunch buffet is REALLY good. I've brought friends there who have very different palates and are meat eaters, and they've all loved it. It becomes a regular place for us to meet now, when we have lunch. Everything is fresh, without much oil (other place's pad thai gets greasy), and variety. I love their thai take on kim chi, slightly sweet, less heat, great as a side with your meal. The spring rolls are perfectly crisp, the peanut sauce is creamy/savory, and the large rice cooker contains a very high quality brown rice. The servers are always busy with crowds, so help yourself as soon as you get a table. Their thai iced tea with coconut milk is sweet and strong--- a nice pairing with the savory meal. Don't miss the hot and sour soup (with plenty of galangala!) If you're a vegetarian and you want to bring a hard-core meat eater somewhere for lunch, I highly suggest Araya--- they won't realize they're not eating meat. They'll find the pad thai, fried rice, spring rolls, and stir fry familiar and "safe." Both of you will revel in the tasty-ness of Araya. PS---They're a great local, family owned business, too. more
