Bahn Thai’s kitchen is manned by two Thai chefs. Sirisane notes the similarities between northern Thai and Laotian cuisines and that serving a combination of sushi and Thai represents the “best” of popular Asian cuisines. Since the sushi roster contains the usual suspects, the Thai side of the menu has more appeal.
Of the Thai dishes, even the simplest sounding items are full of flavor — a fact that might account for Thai food’s current popularity.
At the helm in the kitchen in the role of executive chef is Mark Hibbs (chef-owner of the now-defunct Ratcliffe on the Green), who is known locally for his culinary adventurousness and passion for great raw material — aka local foods. Try the blue-plate-special star, a densely flavored venison meatloaf enveloped in smoky essence of bacon.
The menu at The Blue Taj is a finely honed roundup of quietly Asian-inspired dishes with a smattering of international dishes or condiments: Irish colcannon on the sides list, chimichurri on a chicken breast.

This is ethnic food 3.0 -- food for outside-the-box thinkers, the so-called "creative class."
