I went to Chiang Mai Thai for their late night happy hour. They have cheap drinks and cocktails and most importantly, $3 vegan appetizers. I tried the spring rolls and the fried tofu. The fried tofu was served in long strips like really fat french fries and was surprisingly good. It wasn't particularly packed with flavor on its own but had a crispy but not overdone coating and a lovely softness inside. Dipped in a little soy sauce, sriracha, or peanut sauce, it was a dish I'd definitely order every time I'm there.

The spring rolls, sadly, were completely lackluster. While the rolls were huge, they were 90% rice noodles and 10% prepackaged lettuce--or at least it tasted like it. The menu described the rolls as also containing beansprouts and cilantro but there was absolutely nothing that tasted like cilantro inside. I'd have liked to see some tofu/mock duck options as well as some carrots, cucumbers, onions, peanuts, or SOMETHING with crunch and flavor inside.

Still, I'm eager to try Chiang Mai Thai again. The server was very enthusiastic about their vegan options and told me that almost anything on the menu can be made vegan if requested. He especially recommended the yellow curry, which can be vegan, and the thai basil stirfry. Had they not been $12-13 I would have ordered one last night.

The decor was very nice with high bar tables, regular tables, and low lounge seating. All in all, I enjoyed my tofu, had great service, and am looking forward to trying the entrees. I just won't order the spring rolls.

At here once with my wife a couple years ago. Waitress was highly accomodating when we ordered a dish without fish sauce. Good pad thai. Funky decor.
