When Bangkok Cuisine closed, my email blew up with people wanting to know what happened. Signs on the door said they were going to reopen soon, but it all seemed ominous. Luckily things panned out, and now Tiki Tiki Thai has opened there.
The dining room has a new look and style. The tables and chairs are new, and the low corner booths are gone. The walls have new siding and artwork. It’s a complete make-over.
Though the dishes and menu look similar, there are subtle changes. For instance, they no longer serve pots of tea. Ice tea comes in a hurricane glass. But my server told me they still employ the same chef as before, so the flavors may seem similar while the menu is new. She also said that they have the same owner as the Thai restaurant in the Wharf Cinema Center.
I decided to go for Duck and Green Papaya Salad. I think the prices may have increased a bit to cover the update but the food was good.
They’re open for lunch and dinner.
