Reviews for Plearn Thai Restaurant

I haven't eaten here in over 5 years. I got take out of satay, pad thai, green curry, and a salad. All of the salads describe the dressing as lime juice, chili, onion and mint. My dressing was white. Based on my terrible stomach cramps and trips to the bathroom, I'm assuming they put milk in it, and I'm lactose intolerant. The curry tasted ok, but it had a green bean piece, and that was it. There are so many other Thai places to choose from.

Berkeley is blessed with an abundance of Thai restaurants, but I argue that Plearn stands above. The ability of owner-chef Nui to serve up amazing noodles, enhanced by a skilled hand on the wok, is remarkable. The lunch special remains an amazing deal in a landscape of increasing prices. Simple, fresh, and even addictive, I make Plearn a regular stop. Highly recommend.

This takeout meal was amongst my least favorite Thai food... and I've had a lot of Thai food. Ordered pad Thai with extra veggies and said I was happy to pay extra for it-- it had almost no veggies in it. Asked for a lime wedge and peanuts in the pad Thai, they said ok -- it came with neither. The pad Thai completely lacked flavor and the noodles were dry and clumpy. Barely edible. :(I asked for lightly sweetened Thai iced tea -- it came out so unbelievably sweet I couldn't full review
