Across from Lenox Mall, a chic Thai and Sushi spot brings serious cocktails and super fresh sushi to the north Buckhead area. From the Tiki Thai and Lychee Martini to the Chicken Satay to the Chicken Pad Thai and the fresh One Night in Bangkok Roll, Silom Thai and Sushi Bar is one of those places you can enjoy happy hour, grab a small bite, or go all out with a full meal. Our tip: get the sushi!
Starting with Tiki Thai, it’s a tiki drink with Thai flare. Small batch rum, OJ, Pineapple, lychee juice, and tiki syrup all mixed up into a cocktail that reminds you of summer. It’s refreshing and sweet that leaves you wanting to grab a beach towel and lay in the sun. The Lychee Martini is another good sipper with lychee and vodka, a little bit tart, a little bit sweet. Both drinks are beautifully crafted. They offer several $5 Happy Hour Martinis including this one Monday through Friday from 5 to 7 pm. Cheers!
A staple on Sushi and Thai menus, Chicken Satay is always a must get! Tender chicken with either a sweet cucumber salad or a peanut sauce, that’s a real crowd pleaser! This one was beautifully plated and tender. The sauces were a great addition, especially the salad, which was slightly sweet and paired well with the savory of the meat. Did we mention this is a light and healthy dish? And you get a good portion. Then, there was the Chicken Pad Thai. It was sweet, savory, tender, and deep. Being a traditional dish, this one was elevated with rich flavor and mix in the crunchy carrots, tart of lime, crunchy peanuts and bingo, you have a dynamic dish! Bring a friend, it’s enough for two.
Now, let’s dive into that One Night in Bangkok Roll. By far our favorite of the night, the sushi was unbelievably fresh. The roll boasts of yellowtail, salmon, and topped with seared tuna and mango salad. The bite being sweet and spicy, the mango, creamy avocado, and spices mixed perfectly with the fish to make a well-balanced bite. Plus, the seared tuna was perfectly done and gave it a little bit of smoke and char. We added wasabi and soy sauce, which brought out the creaminess of the avocado and deepen the overall flavor. We STILL can’t get over how tender and fresh the fish was on this roll! This is a must get. We want to try more!
Will we see you there for a sushi roll and a happy hour Martini?
