Editorial Review of Duck Walk

The gleaming, modern look at Duck Walk belies what you'll find inside: tasty traditional Thai cuisine. The teeny-tiny storefront serves up flavorful pad Thai and other noodle dishes, mouth-watering appetizers, spicy fish and chicken entrees and, of course, bubble tea. Duck Walk's convenient location near the Belmont L stop makes it a fast, safe choice for a quick post-commute meal.

Tables are pushed against both walls, with seating for maybe 20-25 people. The cherry-colored wood and black detail gives Duck Walk a classier feel than your typical Thai hole-in-the-wall. The staff is friendly and efficientódespite Duck Walk's matchbox-size, patrons rarely wait for seating. They're good at getting people in and out.

While you won't experience a life-changing meal here, do expect decent-sized portions of accessible yet delicious fare at an amazingly low price. Dinner for two, including an appetizer and two sodas, will be less than $20 total and you'll have some leftovers for lunch the next day. The fried red snapper tastes lighter than you'd expect; at medium, it's hot enough to make your nostrils flare. The tom yum soup is thick, and the crisp egg rolls arrive with a delightful sweet-spicy dipping sauce that matches them nicely. BYOB.

Average cost: <$10

Thai chow that gives a big bang for a few bucks.
