When Thai and Cambodian cuisines come together, Thaibodia is born.

Located on Woodside Road across from the scenic ‘Gas and Shop’ is a small bistro called ‘Thaibodia’.

As the name suggests, the restaurant serves a combination of Thai and Cambodian food and has related decorations around the place.

Upon entering, the first notable aspect of the restaurant is the small size and quietness. The only noise is the conversations of a few other groups of people and ambient sound from the kitchen.

Looking around, the decor comes out. There is an assortment of metallic and wooden figures of elephants and other things around the room, as well as a nice color scheme and comfortable padded seats.

Looking at the menu, one very unique aspect stands out: meat choices. Choices for every dish include the obvious such as: chicken, beef, pork etc., but also includes tofu. This means that any dish of choice can be vegetarian or vegan friendly.

Service wise, there’s nothing special. Servers tend to only acknowledge people when they are spoken to first, but at least they aren’t down right rude.

Food is obviously one of the more important aspects of any restaurant, and Thaibodia delievers.

Pad Thai is a staple food for any Thai restaurant, and the Pad Thai here is great. The sauce is good, the noodles are good, the vegetables inside are good. If the Pad Thai could be summed up in one word, it would be good.

The Cambodia part of Thaibodia comes out in one dish called “Char Kreoung” which is a mix of vegetables and tofu (or any meat of choice) slathered in a unique yellow-ish sauce, which is spicy but still good. Every bite grows better and better especially when a piece of potato sneaks up and shows itself.

Another more unique dish is Rama Thai. Peanuts, peanuts, and more peanuts. Rama Thai consists of a bunch of veggies on a bed of spinach covered in creamy, savory peanut sauce and topped with even more ground peanuts. This dish is worth coming back to the restaurant on its own, and it’s definitely worth a try.

Thaibodia is the kind of restaurant that wouldn’t be super well known around town, but it’s worth a try. The location is definitely a downside as there’s really nothing else around.

So, if just a casual lunch or dinner out to a restaurant that caters to any type of eater is what’s in mind, why not go on down to Thaibodia.
