Nine Thai Eatery
1269 University Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94702
In Thailand, we believe a great meal is about more than just flavor. For us, it's an entire sensory experience. Thai chefs work hard to create a perfectly balanced, harmonious combination of aromas, textures and colors as well as all the different taste sensations. Careful eaters will notice that we aim to include as many different salty, sweet, bitter, tangy and spicy flavors as we can. The result is a wonderfully complex and delightful symphony of elements. But don't feel as if you have to be a connoisseur to enjoy a Thai meal. The final goal of our work is just plain deliciousness!
Here at Nine Thai we take the time to plan our menu so that this tradition of Thai cooking is expressed in every dish.
Our fresh ingredients and artful presentation make every menu item a thing of beauty. And because Thailand has a warm and tropical climate, Thai chefs have a huge variety of fresh vegetables, spices and herbs to draw on. Some of the ingredients that make Thai cooking distinctive include aromatic Thai basil, kaffir lime leaves, cilantro, lemon grass, peanuts, coconut milk and rice noodles. You'll find all these delicious flavors and many, many more at Nine Thai.
Our menu includes several different salads that feature these fresh flavors. Try our Larb, a kind of spicy ground meat served with fresh veggies, for a taste of traditional Thailand. Pad Thai, which is often considered the national dish of Thailand, has been voted one of the world's most delicious meals! Here at Nine Thai we make it with chewy rice noodles, tamarind, bean sprouts, scallions and your choice of protein. You won't find better Pad Thai outside of Thailand – we promise!
Our spicy curry dishes are customer favorites. While our green, yellow and pumpkin curry sauces are distinctive and hot, they don't overpower the flavor of the other ingredients. Instead, they combine to create something new and delicious. Come to Nine Thai and order your own special symphony of flavors!
