NileGuide Expert tip:
Open on Sundays! *** Chanon Thai knows how to spice things up. If you are spice weary definitely order your food mild, if you like spice try medium, and if you are looking for some serious zing order hot.
Chanon Thai Cafe tops the list of Salt Lake City's surprisingly vast array of Asian restaurants. This little hole-in-the-wall is a funky, quirky, friendly cafe that serves up fresh-tasting, wonderfully-smelling Thai cuisine in a low-key, traditional dining room. If you are looking for something spicy, Chanon Thai Cafe can definitely deliver the goods-but as you may already know, you should likely not order higher than a 2 or 3 out of 5 on the spice scale. Don't worry if you are not into spice; you can customize the dishes as you wish. The Gang Masaman Curry and the Pad Gra Paw are some of the best dishes on the menu.
The cafe is nearly always packed and the service is reliably slow for American standards. Be patient because the wait is certainly worth it and one you order the food it is typically in front of you within minutes. Alternatively, a great option is to order for takeaway; the food is still just as good, but the slower service won't bother you!
