Thai Express, once located on Inwood Road, received a facelift, a name change and was relocated to its new home on Oak Lawn late last year. Si Lom Thai Asian Fusion has been open in the quiet basement suite at 3300 Oak Lawn Ave. (that once housed Daniele Osteria and more recently, d'Carlo) since November. The restaurant is practically hidden underneath white concrete, only visible from the bright orange sign that hangs on the wall underneath Goody Goody. The space is warm; tangerine booths line the walls, small vases holding fresh cut flowers are strategically placed on each table and Thai-themed decor is scattered throughout. The menu offers a variety of appetizers, noodle dishes, fried rice, curries, soups and entrees that range from $5 to $18, as well as specialty cocktails.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
