Coco Asian Bistro has some new landscaping; they've removed the hedges and it's a lot more open now.
I never really think of Coco Asian Bistro as a take out restaurant, but it's really not much different than any other Thai restaurant save the fact that it's a pretty nice restaurant. I'm not big on Thai food, but today I decided to have some red curry chicken.
Inside,there's a small bar and a Brown theme; The restaurant was designed by Karen Hanlon, the same designer who did YOLO and VIBE. There's a small bar to the right and a nice dining room to the left as you walk in.
They have the same lunch special has most Thai places have; you pick your meat and your sauce and they give you rice and soup. You don't get a choice of soup; it's the Soup of the Day. Today's soup was Miso Soup.
I didn't like the soup at all. It had an odd smell to it, and I just didn't like it. There were little white tofu squares in the soup as well as seaweed and green onions.
They use pretty sturdy container for their takeout, and its a good thing because I was carrying the bag upside down. The containers locked closed nicely and there was no spillage at all.
It's a pretty good portion; for $10.50 it's not the best deal in town. I ate about half of it; I have to eat light the day after my cheat day.
While they used good ingredients and everything was cooked propertly, the curry wasn't spicy at all. I was hoping for some spice, and this didn't deliver. They didn't ask me how I wanted it when I ordered; I guess they make it mild by default. I think they should have asked.
