Thanks for stopping by! From the start every blog, expense to keep the site up has been a one man job. Readership has grown over the years which has increased the cost to maintain the site. Providing Wichita with a great free resource to highlight businesses and restaurants has been a lot of fun.

Aside from working my 8-5 job and raising a family, this has mostly been a full-time hobby that’s extremely time-consuming and costly but still a joy to do. If you would like to help support the site in anyway, your patronage would be greatly appreciated.

Not long ago Sit & Thai Bistro closed in Wichita but another restaurant was quick to take the spot over.

Krua Thai at Wichita recently opened at the little strip center near 21st & Ridge. I made a quick brief stop to check out the restaurant and get a glimpse of what they had available.

Not too much was done to the interior but that was the least of our worries. We came specifically for the food.

They handed me the dinner menu and said there was another lunch menu available. I asked if they had papaya salad since I didn’t see it on the dinner menu. They did so that’s what I started off with. Like many Thai restaurants, you can order it as varying levels of spiciness. I went with medium and my mouth was a house of fire afterwards. The salad was light and refreshing. Each bite had really good flavor but the aftertaste was just full of heat. I found myself getting as many ice cubes to place on my tongue….. steamed rice helped too. Even though it was hotter than I expected, it was still delicious.

For my main entree, I went with the pork Spicy Basil with steamed rice. It sat in some sort of chili paste sauce that was really flavorful. I had to make sure my steamed rice was mixed in with it as well. Everything that touched it from the vegetables, peppers, and meat turned to gold. I ordered it mild and that proved to be a good idea. It wasn’t so hot that it left my mouth burning so I was able to really enjoy every single bite.

All in all it was a good little meal for a quick first stop for my daughter and I.

I felt bad because we were the only customers in that day. The good part though was we had all the staff’s attention. Everyone there was extremely nice and friendly. They were all really engaging and received many smiles from my daughter. I chatted briefly with everybody there and just received good vibes from all.

One thing to note was the price bump here. Many dishes cost $2-3 more than at Sit @ Thai Bistro. While the food was good, the higher prices didn’t exactly reflect a noticeable bump in quality from its predecessor.

Here’s their dinner menu:

Happy Dining,
Eddy
