The “THAI FOOD CRAZE” has certainly hypnotized Pittsburgh eaters. With this type of cuisine appearing on every street corner next to a Starbucks, the stakes are high to remain on top in the minds of local diners.
Our first visit to Nicky’s Thai Kitchen, located in Pittsburgh’s Cultural District was certainly not the worst experience we’ve ever had dining.
Our party of “9″ is always a challenge to accomodate; even with a reservation. We did decline the hosts offer to “separate” the group upon entry. The Server was pleasant, and friendly. Salads that were requested as appetizers came out as Entrees, alos note that a spice level “1″ should be tour guided as tasting a “5″.
The atmosphere is authentically busy & intriguing. The temperature inside the restaurant was “thick”, and humid, making it uncomfortable at times to stay and eat.
The Taste & Quality of the Food is extremely fresh, I highly recommend the Curry Salmon with Fresh Pumpkin. Request a -5 if your not into spice;)
This Restaurant rating receives a RAW HOG 6/10.
