You might be attracted by the restful ambience of this Kent Station restaurant, but you’ll really be wowed when you taste the food at Banyan Tree Restaurant. Owners Gabe and Yuie Wiborg bring authentic Thai flavors to all their dishes, incorporating recipes common in provincial Thai cooking, but elevated with fresh, local ingredients.
The popular salad Naam Khao Tod blends traditional flavors of minced chicken, lime, cilantro, and fresh ginger, but adds a surprise — crispy rice, providing a delicious crunch. Their classic Tom Yum Soup gets it exactly right, too, with its decadent, nuanced broth served over chunks of tender vegetables (take our advice, and add prawns for a real treat).
Large portions and speedy service make this a good option for a quick break between errands or a destination dinner for two.
