Thai restaurant replacing Subway

Ballard will soon be getting a new Thai restaurant.

Thai Thani (pronounced: tawney) is expected to open the first of June in the previous location of Subway at the corner of Ballard Ave NW and Leary Ave NW. The owner tells us that the restaurant will be decorated with antiques that are currently being shipped from Thailand. This is the second Thai restaurant for the owner, his first restaurant is in south Seattle.

More bad Thai food. All sweet and sickly, no fish sauce, bland and served up to Seattleites as slop.

I wonder what Thani means in Thai… In Tamil it means water…

Hear, hear! I hope they can do a few things to make that corner look less strip-mall-y.

Huh? I don’t understand your objection (or if you’re trying to make some sort of poorly-composed joke).

I am American. I eat a lot of Thai food. The two are not mutually exclusive.

Yeah, Guest, this is America. What’s with all the beef, chicken, and bread we’re being force-fed? We should be eating bison, salmon, berries, corn, and squash. True AMERICAN food.

I would have probably rolled my eyes two years ago about this news but honestly, why not open a Thai restaurant there? I welcome them. It’s a small space and can only work for so many types of establishments.

My office is a block away from here and the vegan Thai place on Ballard Ave. is currently the only one open during lunchtime hours. (I am NOT counting the mediocre teriyaki place or the Monkey / Vietnamese place). I go to the vegan place often but every once in a while some beef/chicken in the noodles would be nice, too.

More power to them if they can serve up good food and make that space, with its weird floorplan and lack of parking, work. Time will tell…

With the amazing potential of time travel and all of it’s infinite possibilities the only news you bring from the future is a one line restaurant review that it isn’t to your liking? Consider me disappointed, not in the new restaurant that is about to open, but disappointed in your squandering the potential of time travel.

So much hate for a place that hasn’t even opened yet. Weird.

There are many, many cockroaches everywhere, and the ones in that building were probably there for decades before Than Bros. moved in. Welcome to earth.
