Thai-namite

Thai-namite Thai Bistro & Sushi Bar opened last June at 932 E. Brady St., offering a full Thai menu, from appetizers to entrées, and sushi.

The menu, which is large considering the smaller size of the restaurant, meanders between Thai and Japanese. The Japanese fare consists of sushi, sashimi, a few appetizers and two soups. The entrees are all of the Thai variety. Kongsin "Kim" Khemanong owns the restaurant along with two friends, Nini Buranabunyut and Dear Panyasopa. Panyasopa's mother is heading the kitchen.

Some of the restaurant's specialties include the house curry - beef in Mussaman sauce - served with roti, the Indian flatbread ($12) and a pad thai wrap, with the stir-fried noodle dish wrapped in fried eggs, like a crepe ($10).

The Thai items tend to be sweeter rather than hot and spicy—gentle Thai, for the most part—but the spicy squid salad ($7) manages to be both. Tender pieces of squid with onions, scallions, fresh mint and a sauce of sweet shrimp with lemongrass come with just enough chile pepper to qualify as spicy. A mound of crispy rice noodles arrives on the side. It’s a nice dish, though it’s sweeter than the normal squid salad. Cucumber salad ($3) is nice, simple Japanese fare, thin pieces of cucumber with slivers of red radish and sweet vinegar. Popular among the sushi offerings are the Thai-namite roll ($14), with octopus, cilantro, jalapeño and crab stick, topped with shrimp, and the summer roll ($13), with crab stick, cucumber and asparagus, topped with salmon.

The service is good enough and the kitchen and sushi bar are efficient. Alcoholic beverages are available, though they are limited to a very basic selection of beer, wine and sake. This is the type of place that works so well on Brady Street. The food is good enough, the prices are moderate and it’s just a fun place to people-watch.

    It was very nice to see both new and familiar faces... welcome to Milwaukee, Erin! And of course, the food was fantastic. They deliver (I am in trouble)!

    food was very good but service was a bit slow, but very friendly. A lively group for conversation ties it all together!
