Yes, that is really what this restaurant is called: Thai Restaurant. I guess this does not bode well for creativity. I've done take-out from this place several times, and eaten in a few times as well. Thai Restaurant is supposed to be the best Thai place in Baltimore. This is a better-than-average Thai place but is far from earth-shattering or original. Like the Ambassador Dining Room (which serves solid Indian fare), there are dozens of equally good Thai places in most major cities. Ambiance too is pretty standard for decent Thai places. Whereas comparable places would have $10 entrees in other cities, entrees here are in the $13-16 range. If one thinks of this as the premium for quality food in Baltimore, then pricing is about right. Outstanding Thai places in other cities (Djan's in Seattle comes to mind) have better food, nicer atmosphere, and lower prices. Still, I'd be happy to order take-out from there or wanted casual Thai food.

Ya need to work on your restaurant locales! The city has a great neighbourhood map for $50. Or look on Live Baltimore's website. There are 225 distinct neighbourhoods in Baltimore.

I'll fix this. I actually know this one. It's technically in Waverly but would be Oakenshaw if one block West and Guilford if one block West and 2 blocks North. This one was mostly an attempt to reduce the number of categories I had in my spreadsheet. I should probably give up on that.

I've been using the following map, which is free online. I assume this correctly demarcates neighborhoods.
