Rod Dee is hands down the BEST. My favorite.

Thai Basil on Newbury Street! It's sweet without being overly sweet. I get it with shrimp and it's amazing. Huge portions, big enough for two people to split - or big enough to have tons of leftovers if you're feeling selfish!

Nud Pob on Comm Ave in Boston. First time I went there - Thai-style pad thai. Served beautifully with sides of hot peppers, peanuts, sugar, and bean sprouts. Awesome!

Brown Sugar's Country Style Pad Thai is excellent although I have a hard time finding anything else on the menu that is as good.

Definitely King and I. All others I've tried have been disappointing by comparison. And it says right on their menu that everything is made without MSG, E.H.! I'd have problems myself if it was.

Brown Sugar's Pad Thai--- they are the biggest take out portions i've ever seen and it's delicious (both regular and country style (spicy). The Khao Soy there is also amazing (better when dining in). It's a yellow curry egg noodle dish that is so good my mouth is watering as I write this.

Brown Sugar - their country style Pad Thai is a personal favorite for many years. Also Erawan out in Waltham but haven't been in a long time.

Although, on occasion we do get it from Green Peapod in Watertown, too.
