I am on an eating tour


Ridge Thai

 50 Chestnut St
Ridgewood, NJ

Thai Gem

Ridge Thai is a mom and pop thai food place where you can byob, which is very important to mention since you’ll be saving a fortune by bringing your own plum wine. The ambiance is noting special and seating is a lil tight, however its something worth overlooking because the food makes up for what the decor lacks. I have eaten there for teh past few years and love it everytime. I highly recommend the chicken satay which comes with a dipping peanut sauce and a light cucmber salad. The spring rolls are light and crunchy and come with a chili duck sauce. The thai beef salad which a bit spicy comes served ona bed of lettuce, with thai basil, cucmbers, carrot and chilies. The dressing is a light lemongrass vinegarette which balances the ingrediens beautifully. The coconut chicken soup, less spicy, is very good but not as good as the clear soup which is served spicy and steaming hot with fresh shrimp, peppers, onion, mushroom, thai basil and lemongrass. This delicious elixir of clear soup has brought me back to life countless times as it is fantastic for colds and hangovers! My favorite is the red Panang Curry, which is a bit spicy and savory and contains my favorite ingredience-coconut milk. You can order the curry with chicken, beef or shrimp and you can control the amount of heat/spice that the chef puts into your thai food. When I go there with my kids 3 and 4 year old, I ask the waitress to make the food VERY mild for the kids and they are happy to oblige. Servers @ Ridge Thai will ask you on a scale from 1 to 10 how hot u like your food, so for the kids I always order a #1 and for anyone trying it for the first time, I recommend the same. The noodle dishes and tofu dishes(vegetarian) come made to order as well and are all yummy. I have never had a bad dinner there and enjoy their small, quiet and intimate restaurant very much every time. Reservations highly recommended, there’s a liquor store on the same block and parking lot directly across the street. The only place that comes closest to the quality of food and flavors is Bangkok Garden in Hackensack, NJ.
