This is the first Taichung (and third Taiwan) branch for the Singaporean-based modern Thai-style restaurant chain. Using imported Thai spices, Thai head chef K. Chantana creates attractively-presented new interpretations of traditional Thai favorites, served in smaller portions perfect for one or two diners. For NT$450/person, there are also special sets for two, four and eight people. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Angel Pu
