If you want to take out-of-towners to a restaurant and show them what a cool neighborhood you live in, take them to Planet Thai. If you want great Thai food, go to Cheers. Worthy of it’s name, Cheers’ classically tasteful interior of dark wood and navy blue booths is the most comfortable and low-key Thai restaurant among many around town, and in the summer months, the garden at cheers is nothing short of a dream.
The menu is short and simple with all of the classic Thai dishes done very well. Pad Thai, summer rolls, and curries are exceptional and the famous Thai hot and sour soup, tomyum goong, is second to none. For four straight Sundays, I went to cheers and had the pineapple shrimp curry served in a clay pot and loved it every time. Averaging about $8 per entree, Cheers is a pleasure that can be afforded again and again; and they deliver.

Consider this little spot when you’re in need of consistent Thai comfort food. The menu features the requisite pad Thai, spring rolls, tom kha kai soup, and curry dishes, all tailored for an American palate and perfect for a quick, cheap dinner. They work hard to create a welcoming atmosphere with low lighting, postcards of Thailand, candles on tables with fresh orchid blossoms, and oddly, Van Gogh prints. But the main attraction for eating in-house, rather than doing take-out is the pleasant backyard patio in warmer weather.
