Thai in Larkspur. I'd heard that one of the former owners of Thep Lela had opened a new place in Larkspur and that it was fabulous, but although it's been some time, hadn't made it there yet. So on the way to brunch, when Dad mentioned he'd rather have Thai, it was the perfect opportunity to stop at R'Noh Thai. R'Noh means "Rising Sun", and it is in a small mall in Larkspur. It looks like there is no parking, but if you drive into the driveway you can find a hidden parking lot in the back.
The interior is warm, peaceful and inviting. And the greetings are prompt and service quiet and unobtrusive.
Dad started with the Thai Rolls, which he said were hot, crisp and delicious.
I tried the Thai Fresh Rolls, which were crisp and fresh, like a little handful of salad, neatly wrapped.
Dad chose one of the day's specials, Pumpkin Curry. It looked really delicious from my side of the table. Dad said it was perfectly spiced and tasted like everything was field ripened and prepared at its peak.
I was tempted by the Bamee Chicken, and was careful to pronounce it correctly. At another Thai restaurant, it was off-menu, and I asked if they could make "Bambi Chicken" which elicited giggles from the elegantly coiffed and dressed waitress at the time. It's a favorite of mine, simple, and if done correctly the chicken is infused with subtle flavors. R'Noh Thai's was a fabulous rendition. R'Noh Thai is definitely a place I'll revisit.
