There's pretty tough competition for Best Thai in these parts, as both runners up are fine establishments. But you, the farsighted crew of Weekly
readers, landed on Char's Thai as your favorite. Maybe it was the many seafood delicacies, the squiggly squids and curvy shrimps, floating in heavenly lagoons of peanut and coconut. Maybe it was the noodles, or the curries, or the homemade coconut ice cream for dessert. Or maybe it was the talkative server, a Char's institution, who would tell you the place should be called "Toi's Thai," and then tell you she's just kidding, and then tell you her life story. Charrr
, it's a mystery of the sea.
