5401 Walnut Street Hartwell Building Pittsburgh, PA 15232
The trendy strip of restaurants, shops and pubs on Walnut Street is always abuzz. Yet above Ann Taylor, in the Hartwell Building, My Thai is a serene and romantic alcove apart from the bustle. Draped metallic fabric decorates the ceiling and complements the gold and black tables. A wall of windows overlooks South Aiken Street at the intersection of Walnut. Even for those who are not accustomed to Thai cuisine, the menu makes it easy to order a suitable dish. The spice level of each option is clearly identified. From Pad Thai to Pepper Steak, the menu includes something for everyone. This is a great restaurant for an introduction to the tastes of Thai food. - Corinne N. M. Kenna
