Berkeley Thai House In good weather, a table on the spacious wooden deck here is a choice spot to relax with a cooling, sweet Thai iced tea. On nippier days and in the evening, the cozy inside dining room decorated with Thai artifacts is an inviting option. Specials chalked on a board by the entrance are usually a good bet. Favorite dishes include spicy-hot basil chicken, full-flavored cashew nut chicken, moo-prik-khing (a superb stir-fry with pork and fresh green beans in a spicy sauce), panang neur (beef and sweet basil in a spicy red curry sauce with a coconut milk base), and a very good pad thai (a sweet, orange-colored noodle dish accented with ground peanuts, bean sprouts, bean cake, and a few tiny shrimp).
