A kaleidoscope of crazies
We’re pretty sure, no actually we’re totally convinced that there is no other restaurant like this on the face of this earth. Sure, the world is big ,things keep repeating themselves; imitations beget copies. But, we are still persuaded we’re right. Nothing rivals the whacko-playful interiors and the top-notch cuisine at Tai Boh. Come and see for yourself! The first impulse that strikes you when entering the classic wooden building is to turn around and leave. There’s no way this staircase could possibly lead to a restaurant, it looks like the entrance to bohemian artist’s studio. It might take time to warm up to, and perhaps a minute to settle down and relax in this eccentric milieu, yet we know you’ll be coming back for more very soon again. Tai Boh’s cross-over Asian food has a calming effect from the first bite of the first dish. Those extremely spicy notes that Thai and Indian cooking are famous for have been adjusted to appeal to Nordic palates, they’re dialed down to reflect the chillier surroundings, but rest assured, they’re not dumbed down. Start off with one of the house signature cocktails, they’re wonders of balanced flavors and contrast marvelously with the psychedelic décor. Continue with some gyoza or a beef tataki, then move on to a Thai green- or panang chicken curry, and finish off with a pineapple carpaccio. Or, if the choices are too daunting, opt for one of the tasting menus. There is also a vegetarian menu if you’d rather go that route. Just please don’t miss this fun-house...
