I have commented extensively on Thai Delight at Broadway and 33rd Street in Edmond, but Sushi Thai Delight is the newest location of this restaurant. Both restaurants actually serve sushi and both have the same menu. The operation of the two restaurants is interconnected, and the waiter on my first visit here said he worked at Thai Delight on Mondays when Sushi Thai Delight was closed.
The staff at the Broadway Thai Delight told me they have two Thai cooks–one for the curries and one for the stir fried dishes. They are apparently from Thailand, and I would not doubt that this is true based on the food that is served. I do not know how much of this also applies to Sushi Thai Delight, but I do believe their cooks are also from Thailand (based on the flavor of the food).
The best curry dish I have had at either restaurant was here at the I-35 location. I attribute this to the owners not only hiring the best cooks they can find, but also allowing them to cook the food their own style that they learned in Thailand. For whatever reason I like the curry best at this location.
The stir fried dishes at the Broadway location are probably the best I have found in the OKC area. I am qualifying this statement so that I do not have to go through my notes and possibly find individual dishes I liked better at other restaurants. Generally, though, I think Thai Delight is the best. I cannot speak about Sushi Thai Delight because I have not tried the stir fried dishes here. Knowing the standards that the owners set, though, I imagine it is quite good as well.
The Salad with Ginger Dressing was good to the point of sticking in my memory as being one of the reasons I would like to go back for the lunch specials. You can choose a soup instead (and they have a different dressing available as well). Lunches are rounded out by a spring roll.
Another feature that is impressive about the lunch specials is that they have a wide choice of items–several types of curries and stir fried flavors are available. Most of the items I like the best are on the lunch menu.
The Kao Soi is a dish I picked in order to try something new, and it turned out to be one of my favorite dishes at Thai Delight (and my favorite curry). It was a lunch special, and I do not remember whether the lunch special only comes with chicken or whether this is what they recommended, but in any case I think this is the way I would recommend ordering it.
I was told that this was a dish from northern Thailand (in fact the yellow curry reminded me of ones I had eaten in Lao restaurants). The chef is not shy about making the curry spicy, and I definitely recommend ordering some Thai iced tea with it. The chicken also helped to tone down the heat and is another reason I think it is good to order it this way.
One interesting feature of this dish is that it has soft noodles cooked in the curry as well as crispy noodles sprinkled on top. There are quite a few vegetables added–I did not realize how many until I got a take-home order from the Broadway restaurant where the vegetables were separated until I added them in.
So far I think this has been the best curry dish I have had in the Oklahoma City area (including the other Thai Delight Restaurant). What I do not know is if there are any curry dishes at this restaurant that are better (I have tried other curries at the Broadway Thai Delight and the kao soi is still my favorite).
I think this is one of the best places in the city for Thai Tea.
They do not add MSG to the food although there are small amounts in some of the sauces they import from Asia.
The dining room was comfortable but the tables seemed closer together than at the other restaurant. I have not been here post-COVID to see how or if they have made any adjustments.
Both of the Thai Delights serve sushi and have a separate sushi chef. I think having the name “Sushi Thai Delight,” though, is not an indication that they have more sushi than the other restaurant, but is merely a convenient way to distinguish the restaurants.
