Thai Island has the sweet charm of a beloved neighborhood place. It's not fancy, the decor is simple and homespun, the service is as personal as it gets (if it's not Clay McElmurray, it's his wife, co-owner Penn Karach making suggestions and zipping over a tray — Karach's mother, Pat, is often in the kitchen). What elevates Thai Island above plenty of other area Thai restaurants is breadth of menu and quality of ingredients. They have the familiar curries (green, red, panang, massaman), but the salad and appetizer sections of the menu pack some unusual finds.
