Thai on Main, Northampton, PA 3 visit review

Thai on Main
961 North Street
Northampton, PA

Staff is friendly and you can watch them cook your food since they cook it in the same room!

First Visit

We both started with the Thai Salad $4

Menu describes salad as having Lettuce, tomato, carrots, bean sprout, cucumber and onion served with peanut dressing. By looking at the photo we took, it seems to be missing a few items. It was a basic no frills salad. It had fresh ingredients, but was not as described.


Our grandson ordered the Pineapple Fried Rice with Chicken $9

Menu describes this as having chicken, egg, pineapple, cashew nut, scallion and curry powder. Photo also does not match menu description. The dish was good, but again, not as described.


I ordered the Drunken Noodle with Chicken $7

Spicy broad noodles, chicken, egg, basil, broccoli, tomato, bell pepper onion and chili. This was good. Lots of flavor and I would order it again.


Ed ordered the Pad Prik Khing $9

String bean, chicken, red bell pepper, lime leave with prik khing curry paste. This was served with a side of Jasmine Rice. This dish had some kick and he enjoyed it.


For dessert we split an order of fried Banana Rolls.


Second Visit

Ed started with the Thai Salad $4

Lettuce, tomato, carrots, bean sprout, cucumber and onion served with peanut dressing. Again, salad did not come as described in menu.

I skipped the salad and started with the Spring Rolls $4

Carrot, cabbage, vermicelli, celery served with a plum sauce. You are served 3 rolls cut in half. They were ok and I would order them again


For his meal, Ed ordered the Prik Prow (Chili Paste) with Chicken $9

Onion, bell pepper, cashew nut and chili paste. This had some kick to it and he enjoyed it. Said he would order it again.


I had the Mus Sa Man Curry with chicken $7

Sweet and Sour thick (sauce with) curry with onion, carrot, peanut and potato. This was ok. If we go back I would skip this and try something else.


Both of our meals were served with Jasmine Rice.

We didn’t order dessert this time.

I suggest you call before you plan on going. The last time we went for lunch, they were closed for the day and we ended up going to another Thai restaurant.

Third Visit

This time Ed went without me. He was working in the area and ran in for a quick lunch.

Ed started with the Thai Salad $4

For his meal, Ed ordered the Prik Prow (Chili Paste) with Chicken $9

He ordered this in our last visit and wanted to try it again. Unfortunately, this time it came with Shrimp when he had ordered it with Chicken. Ed is not allergic to Shrimp and ate the meal as it was served. This could have been a deadly mistake for anyone that is allergic to Shrimp.

This will be our last visit to Thai on Main. My suggestion to anyone eating here, inspect the food you are served and make sure it is what you ordered.


Skillet Fried Corn and Onions


Quick and easy dish for people that love fresh corn but not on the cob!


Makes about 4 servings

4 ears of fresh corn, about 2 cups cut from the cob
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 small sweet onion, diced
1 tablespoon sugar, optional
Salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat

Sauté corn until it just starts to get tender, about 5-10 minutes

Add onion and sauté until onion starts to get crispy, about 5-10 minutes

Season with sugar, salt and pepper


Kickin’ Citrus Chicken


This was so easy to make. Little bit of kick but not to much.


Kickin’ Citrus Chicken

Recipe makes 4 servings

4 boneless skinless chicken breast
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a 9×13 baking dish and place chicken in dish

Mix all the ingredients above in a bowl

Pour half of the liquid mixture over chicken

Flip chicken over and pour the rest of the liquid on the chicken

Flip chicken back and forth to make sure it is coated well

Bake chicken breasts uncovered for about 30-35 minutes. Make sure the internal temperature is at least 160 degrees

This was very good. Not to hot but it seemed like it was missing something. Next time I make it I might add a bit of brown sugar to the liquid mixture and pineapples along with the chicken.

Let me know how you liked this and if you made any changes.
