Editorial Review of Bamee Noodle Shop

For this writer, the name of this restaurant is a little too close to "Bambi" for comfort. But rest assured; whatever troubling images the moniker might evoke for you, this unassuming little Thai discovery is more likely than not to become your favorite weekend standby.

Practically hidden among the droves of clever and creative food offerings that overwhelm North Broadway Avenue, this noodle shop presents neither gimmickry nor hip, cutesy themes. It's that place someone always suggests when trying to figure out where to eat, because you're assured classic, comfort Asian cuisine. It's that place you look forward to on a Saturday afternoon following an exhausting day of perusing the nearby Gap; while you may find the new line of turtleneck sweaters or celebrity promotional ads disappointing, crispy crab rangoon and carb-tastic pad thai always leave customers satisfied.

The slick and surprisingly spacious dining area exudes a low-key quality, with its taupe color scheme, modern lighting and minimal, yet beautiful artwork (the stunning koi painting alone merits a peek inside). Asian bric-a-brac lines the counters near the cash register that also displays the decent beer and wine selection. The menu doesn't throw any curveballs; you'll find everything you'd expect, from satay to pot stickers to tom yum, with most entrees priced under $7. But unlike the numerous expendable Thai spots around town, Bamee maintains a certain warmth and friendly atmosphere that will keep you coming back.

Average cost: <$10
