Rin Thai Bistro adds smaller, faster Thai restaurant to Elmwood

Longtime King & I owner Rin Suphankomut has opened a smaller, faster Thai restaurant on Elmwood.

At Rin Thai Bistro, 988 Elmwood Ave., the Thai chef-owner is offering a stripped-down Thai menu that hits the favorites and adds a few unusual dishes. Bing Paesang is the other owner.

There's only two coconut milk curries offered – green curry with chicken and panang curry with pork (both $13).

Pad thai, the ubiquitous stir-fried noodle dish, is there in chicken and shrimp versions ($13/$17). Tom kha, coconut milk soup braced with lime, and hot-and-sour tom yum soup are both on offer in chicken and shrimp versions ($5/$7).

On the other hand, moo ping, marinated pork skewers ($7), aren't found in every Thai place. Same for ginger-rice soup ($4). Pho, the Vietnamese noodle soup served with a side plate of fresh herbs, bean sprouts and chiles, makes an appearance in beef and chicken ($13).

There is no alcohol for sale at present, but Suphankomut is applying for a beer and wine license.

Hours: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday. Closed Monday. Phone: 881-9900.
