Thai cuisine consists of different kinds of noodles, rices, vegetables, pastes and sauces that give all dishes a spicy, distinct flavor. And while most dishes incorporate some kind of rice into them, the grain is always paired with a vegetable, a meat or both. Noodles and peanut sauce seem to be the most commonly known from the cuisine, but it’s definitely so much more than that. So to see for yourself in 2014, allow us to suggest the Best Thai Restaurant on Long Island.
