Archi’s Thai Kitchen

With Lotus of Siam in town, it’s hard to think about going to another Thai restaurant.  Pin Kaow is an exception because it’s close to where we live. But after hearing good reviews, and an inclusion in the Michelin guide, I decided it was time we tried Archi’s.  And it was worth it!

The place is pretty small inside, kind of a typical looking Thai restaurant, but comfortable and with fast, attentive service.  We were there for lunch, and the lunch specials are a steal!  $6.95 for a lunch special with chicken, beef, pork, or tofu and $7.95 for one with shrimp.  The specials come with the soup of the day, as well as a wonton and eggroll, plus rice with the non-noodle items.

Although I’ve never been a huge fan of Pad Thai, I decided to give it a try because Pad See Yew wasn’t a lunch special option.  Usually I find Pad Thai to be overly sweet.  I have to say, I think this was the best Pad Thai I’ve ever had!  I asked for it with no spice, but it did have a hint of spice to it which was fine, and it had such a great flavor.  Savory, tart, and with just a hint of sweetness and spice.  The noodles were cooked perfectly, more on the firm side which is what I prefer.  The soup of the day was the Tom Kha Kai, which was quite good, although I think Lotus of Siam’s might be slightly better.  Still, it was nice and tart, with just enough flavoring of coconut milk and ginger.  The wontons and eggrolls were nothing overly special.

Adam opted for the red curry, and after running out of rice, was spooning the curry into his mouth.  He joked that the curry has to be pretty good for him to drink it straight!  I tasted it and although it was a bit spicy for me (I think he ordered it at spice level 3) it had a wonderful flavor to it.  I’d definitely order that dish, although probably at a lower spice level!

As far as Thai restaurants in Vegas go, I’d put the food at Archi’s just below Lotus of Siam, and just above Pin Kaow.
