-- By Dawn Reid Translated by Annie Liu

Hi Thai is a new restaurant located behind and across from FE21 Department store and should top you're To Try List. It offers everything you want in a restaurant - a combination of Thai and Vietnamese favourites alongside an array of tasty specialties at good prices served in an inviting and stunning space. It is arguably the largest and most elaborate Thai restaurant in Kaohsiung. Here is where Asian decor such as large ornate mirrors, lanterns, bronzed Buddha faces and other beautiful artifacts meet America's Hollywood icons from the 1950's (specifically Marilyn Monroe and James Dean).

The restaurant consists of two floors and offers outdoor seating on the upstairs balcony. The seating itself is intriguing and made mostly of driftwood. A well-stocked bar is set up on the first floor, from where customers can order anything from wine to cocktials. The staff are friendly, quick to serve and offer you a menu in English and Chinese (leaving only minimal guessing about the contents of dishes). Speaking of dishes, favourites such as Green Papaya Salad, Green Curries, Lemongrass (listed as citronella) Curries, Vietnamese Spring Rolls, Shrimp Pancakes and Thai Fried Rice Noodles can be enjoyed here at very fair prices. While specialties such as Thai Balsaam Pear Salad, Vietnamese Grilled Sea Bass with Lemongrass, King Prawn Vermicelli Pot and Coconut Milk with Eggplant highlight the delicious variety of food from around NT$300. They also serve a range of vegetarian dishes from NT$100, specialty coffee such as Vietnamese coffee, ice cream coffee and cappuccino from NT$90 and fresh juices for NT$140.

All in all it is an enjoyable dining experience, well worth many return visits as there is lots on the menu to try. It also has a great bathroom and that always gets high points in this writer's books. Also, Hi Thai will be open during Chinese New Year and on most holidays.
