This restaurant always has affordable meals and will give you more than you can eat. I typically always get the beef Thai fried rice, and I'm always coming home with what feels like half the plate! The atmosphere here is very warm, and the servers will describe all the food and help you pick out new dishes. The happy hour isn't bad either -- with $5 cocktails! Check out their website here.
 

Bangkok Joe's

The environment is always upbeat, and you'll typically see a few birthday dinners happening. With a bar in the back and a separate sushi bar, this place can still give you an intimate vibe if you're there for date night. With a changing menu that never seems to end, you can find your new favorite meal here. Take a look at their website for more information!

In the spirit of fall, you must try their Pumpkin Curry! Pair it with Chicken Curry Puffs, and you will feel nothing but comfort and a full belly. They have special beers and cocktails and an extensive appetizer list. This is the perfect place to go before you head out for the night! Click here for more info.
