My soup was served at room temperature. And my entree was merely good. I coveted the tofu with yellow curry the guy behind me ordered. My first experience with Tasty Thai up north was disappointingly inconclusive. The primary problem was that the single man covering the lunch hour rush yesterday was comically overworked. And it didn't help that the animated film Ratatouille was playing on a big television for a room full of adults. I really like the Thai Place, the Kansas City chain that dominates this market, but I refuse to accept that there's not a superior alternative.
