Blue Ash Thai

It's no longer exciting to hear that a Thai/sushi restaurant is going to open: they are a dime a dozen. But I am more than usually interested in the one that's going to open in Blue Ash. Chanaka Delanerolle, who owns Teak in Mount Adams, has bought the Watson Bros building and is going to do the Thai/sushi combination, with some other Asian food thrown in. The name Apsara, he says, means the sacred dancers at a Buddhist temple and has a good meaning of blessedness.
He says his will be better than all the others because he has a master sushi chef and doesn't cut corners. That seems completely possible. He's done a great job with attention to detail at Celestial Steakhouse, anohter of his Mount Adams restaurants, and Teak is wildly popular--an hour and a half wait on the weekend he says. Plus the building is big and impressive, and has one of the nicer patios in the Greater Cincinnati area. I do miss the beer. . . . .

If you don't live close to Blue Ash, Thai Namtip has VERY good food and service. It's worth a try! OK the shopping center it's in is, errr, nondescript - but the staff and food make up for it. From the rather abbreviated review on Cincinnati.com: "Once inside, a mix of white tablecloths, elegant and exotic decor and a casual air, make you feel right at home."

I hear Delight Thai Cafe going to remodeling their restaurant. Sushi Bar will change the corner to opposite site. There Thai food is very good. So waiting and see the new look of Delight Thai Café.
