Rice, fish, and vegetables, flavored with garlic, black pepper, and fish sauce, along with fresh fruit, comprised the basic diet of Sukhothai, a Thai empire founded in 1238 (the name Sukhothai means Dawn of Happiness). For 120 years, Sukhothai was the capital of a Thai kingdom that was considerably larger than Thailand is now. A total of eight kings ruled Sukhothai before 1365 when it was degraded into a vassal state of Ayutthaya.

But, if I must choose... ["2k Thai Food"] loses some points for the trying-too-hard atmosphere. I like the way that ["Thai Recipes"] always asks if you want your tofu fried or soft. ["Thai Nakorn"] has some dishes that lean more towards Chinese, so if you're not sure what you want (or if you have a mixed party that can't make up its mind), it's a good choice. ["Sophia's Thai Kitchen"] has that close-to-["Campus"] advantage, so it's probably my favorite for lunch. But for dinner, I'm leaning toward ["Thai Bistro"]. Hard to say why, other than the generic: quality ingredients that taste good. Try the sweet and sour chicken with mango. (Here's a hint: it's not that deep batter fried stuff with gloppy pink sauce). And they do get extra points for the nice outdoor patio where you can bring your ["Dogs" dog]. So, that's my preference for now, with the right to change my mind in the future! --["Users/CovertProfessor"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Thai Restaurantshttp://daviswiki.org/Thai_Restaurants2006-09-16 10:36:42PaulAmnuaypayoatComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Thai Restaurants<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 61: </td> <td> Line 61: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2006-09-16 11:36:42'' [[nbsp]] Can we not list the price for Pad Thai, please?
