If you’re looking for a restaurant serving authentic home-style Thai cooking, look no further than Nusara Thai Kitchen in Elmhurst, Queens. If our restaurant reviews were in the habit of giving stars, this would surely be a five! Family owned, Nusara’s consistently delivers on their belief that Thai food doesn’t have to be spicy, it just has to be flavorful. And with attentive, friendly service that makes you feel like you are actually in the cook’s home, Nusara’s wants its guests to know that they are there to ensure that you enjoy your meal.
Nusara’s menu offers a vast array of delicious Thai dishes, so we thought it helpful to provide a few recommendations. For appetizers, there’s the Tod Mun (fish cake served with cucumber salad). Or try their Shrimp mermaids (whole shrimp wrapped in wonton and served with a sweet plum sauce). One of their most popular entrees , and a specialty of the chef, is the Striped Bass steamed in a lime garlic chile sauce. Another highlight we found on the menu was the Jumbo Shrimps in a lime chili sauce with an artful presentation that’s topped with an authentic Thai orchid. Nusara’s menu is very accommodating to the vegetarian palate as well, and features no less than seven different curries: Red, Green, Panang, Masaman, Kar-Rhee, Jungle, and our personal favorite, Chu-chee…a little spicy, pinkish in color and creamy, and not as strong or spicy.
Special orders are gladly taken. But we strongly suggest following the suggestions of the wait staff. Their inspiration for creating and serving great food is knowing that Nusara’s cooking continues to please and satisfy so many people. To top off your dinner, we say the mango with sticky rice is the handsdown winner. Sweet and tasty, it’s the perfect ending to a great meal. (Available only in season: Spring/ Early Summer). As the weather begins to get cooler, try the Custard Pumpkin.
We strongly recommend you call them to make reservations and go enjoy a great Thai dining experience!
