Singha Thai

Said to me over dinner at Singha Thai: "Close your eyes, and you'd think you were eating at a fancy restaurant." Actually, we're in a neat but modest little storefront tucked into a West Babylon supermarket strip mall. Zero ambience. No liquor license. No pretenses. But plenty of panache -- on the plate. Owner Ruighen Jiang (who acts as both hostess and waitress) and chef Kay Lin honor spicing requests with respect and accuracy. That neither was born in Thailand hardly matters. -- Joan Reminick (Newsday / Sept. 29, 2011)
