What is the significance of the number 9? Bangkok native Natalie Suchartnitkul has always embraced 9, which is a lucky number in Thailand. Beloved King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who passed away in 2016, was the ninth King in the Chakri dynasty. Nine is the sum of the numbers in the restaurant’s address, 12510 Riverside Drive. Finally, in Thai the number is pronounced [gow], which also means “move forward”—an auspicious sign. A lot of thought went into the name … and into the food as well.
The sprawling menu is dozens of dishes deep and also requires some decryption. Most of the interesting dishes have been isolated on the “Proudly…Present” menu section, including web spider deep-fried soft-shell crab with garlic sauce, and rib eye with either spicy basil or chile lime sauces. Their most notable noodle dish is hidden in plain sight.
Curry Noodles ($10), a Northern Thai noodle that’s better known as khao soi, features a bowl of egg noodles, fried shallots, sliced chicken breast (or choice of protein), raw red onion and bell pepper, sweet chili paste and central thatch of crispy egg noodle. The yellow curry base is nice and spicy without being gratuitous. This dish still packs some punch.
