The Thai T, 9000 Foothill Blvd. (at Hellman), Rancho Cucamonga

In the Orchard Supply/Big Lots center, The Thai T isn’t in the flashiest location, but I’ve been there a half-dozen times since its opening a few years ago. The restaurant has plenty of windows for natural light. The atmosphere, and the service, is quiet and serene. And the food’s better than average.

At lunch recently, I had the yellow curry (pictured) with pork, simmered in coconut milk with potatoes and carrots. My friend had broccoli with oyster sauce with shrimp. We both liked our meals, and he noted favorably the fresh, not frozen, shrimp. The 13 lunch specials are $7 with pork, chicken, beef or tofu or $8 with shrimp. They come with a small salad, soup, steamed rice and fried wonton.

My Thai iced tea was refilled for free, a rare touch. Everything I’ve ever had there has been good. It’s a nice little place, not spectacular, not a destination, but a solid choice if you’re in the area. But note the B in the window.

    We have been on a few occasions. Service is prompt, the food has always been tasty and the bill reasonable. They had an “A” rating on the times that we ate there.

    It’s a nice, clean and very enjoyable restaurant. You can drop from an A to a B with just so much as a -10 degrees in hot water temperature so I’m sure they will be fine. Next we need to figure out how in the heck Hungry Howie’s is doing a couple doors down.
