In a small garden tucked behind Sakhuu Thai Cuisine in East Dallas, owner Kyla Phomsavanh grows the building blocks for his curries, stir fries and other Thai dishes. Have a seat in the dark-toned dining room and make friends with the staff. They're as warm and welcoming as a steaming bowl of tom kha soup. If you're tired of soggy, oily egg rolls, then give the staple another try here. Everything that emerges from the deep frier is crisp, light and flavorful. The spicy, rich flavors of Phomsavanh’s dishes are perfectly balanced by bold and boozy beers, and Sakhuu is delightfully BYOB.
