The cuisine of Thailand has won a huge following in the United States because it brings unique flavors to the table. Herbs and spices like ginger, galangal, and Thai basil mix and mingle to make dishes that tantalize the palate.
Waltham locals have a few options when it comes to Thai, but Tree Top is far and away the favorite. Be aware that it can be incredibly difficult to get a table here, as the restaurant is quite tiny, and it’s often packed with locals. When you do sit down, you’ll be in for a truly exceptional meal. Start off with the stir-fried Dancing Mussels served with a spicy basil sauce that will wake up your taste buds, or go for the house special Tree Top Bags: wontons stuffed with curried vegetables and deep-fried. For entrees, frequent diners rave about the curries as well as the Crazy Noodles, a dish of wide strips of pasta served in an incredibly spicy and invigorating red sauce.
