Anyway, we went to the Nicky's location on Penn Avenue. Our reservations were for 5:30 and we were seated right away. They are BYOB, but we didn't BYOB.
I decided my best option was to order several appetizers. Here's what I ate:
|Crispy Egg Rolls: These were good, but I didn't really taste any of the filling. Actually, they reminded me of cigarette russes cookies. I wouldn't order these again.|
|Crab Rangoon: Delicious. R thought these were the best she has eaten in Pittsburgh, and I think I agree with her.|
|Steamed Dumplings: These were my favorite of the 3 appetizers I ordered. The dipping sauce was delicious sweet and sour soy sauce with sesame seeds.|
|SP's Tom Kha Soup. He really likes this soup and thought that Nicky's version was tasty.|
|Rice for SP with his curry and for S with his catfish dish. We called it the holy grail of rice!|
Service was quite good, friendly, water glasses were kept filled, nothing to complain about there.
SP would go back. I would go back if a group of friends wanted to go there, but like any Thai restaurant, it just isn't going to be my first choice. But if you do like Thai, based on comments from other friends, Nicky's is a solid choice.
