International-style Thai restaurants seem to be popping up all over Tokyo these days, and Gin Khao has joined the club, with a promise of exotic California-style Thai cuisine. In addition to the usual tom yum kun and curries you'll find entertaing cross-cultural dishes like vegetable and quinoa salad with beet dressing, Thai-style buffalo chicken wings with sriracha-glazed cauliflower, and "Crying Tiger" spicy steak.
The lunchtime menu is much more straightforward, with decent versions of Thai standards like green curry, pad thai and gapao rice. The dining room is spacious and airy, with some semi-outdoor terrace seating in the building's atrium. Budget around Y3500 for dinner and drinks, while lunches start at Y1100.
