Rachada uses the freshest ingredients. Whether enjoying a Thai Spring Roll, a Tom Yum Soup or a more elaborate entre, the sense of freshness is immediately apparent. Dishes look exotic, flavors are concentrated & complement one another. When in doubt ask the servers for they have great recommendations. My favorite are the vegetarian dishes they are simple yet have sophisticated seasoning, which leave my taste buds anticipating the next bite. I highly recommend the Mango Rice made with ripe mango, sticky rice & coconut milk – a great dessert large enough portion to share.
