Though honest, un-Americanized ethnic food is difficult to find throughout most of Columbus, one location not only cooks it perfectly, but they do so in a comfortably modern and polished way. Chi Thai’s name around New Albany is solid, so everyone knows who they are. With such a following, one would expect a bold entrance. Not so. The service and food do the talking here. When we pulled through, we dove into a bowl of Pataya Shrimp ($8.95): jumbo shrimp, baby carrots, snow peas and spicy tomato sauce. One bite and we immediately grabbed the menu a second time to schedule round two.
