Thai & Birthday: Jasmine

One of the lovebirds recently celebrated his birthday this past Sunday and we decided to check out Jasmine on Niagara Falls Blvd. in Tonawanda. Jasmine is perfectly located across from the Boulevard Mall and is easily accessible. (keep your eyes peeled, it is in a  plaza setting)

Perfect for a casual date, meeting family, hanging out with a friend, or even solo lunch- Jasmine has friendly faces and great service. Nor should we forget that the food is fresh and delicious! Having beloved Thai restaurants in LA, Erie, PA, and NYC- we are on a hunt for our new favorite Thai location in WNY. (so far, we really love Taste of Thai on Hertel Ave. and Saigon Bangkok on Transit) Jasmine may be our preferred hotspot ‘up north’- sometimes it is a bit hard finding authentic flavors and dishes in the United States, but we try to base each place on their unique ability to cater to Western tastebuds. We spent a solid three hours with family simply chatting, laughing, and noshing on each other’s plate.

Bangkok Pasta with shrimp
Cashew Nut with shrimp
Pad Kee-Mow (hot)
Garlic and Black Pepper with beef

All four of us loved our meals and have this down as a must-go-again-and-again. The service was nice and speedy and their dishes held flavor and satisfaction.

So this is a good date place?: heck yes it is! We would say this is great for a casual date or just wanting to explore a new cuisine you have not tried yet. It is great for post-shopping, after running errands anywhere on NF Blvd., or just seeking out a new place in Tonawanda.

And if anything we are telling you- it is that you must get a Thai ice tea and coconut ice cream (just for fun). Because who doesn’t love a sweet treat?

**note: vegetarian options here are a little thin. please remember that it can tough with cuisine’s of the world to change their traditions. our Thai friends try to reiterate this as much as possible. many Buddhist sects of Theravada eat meat and only during the Nine Emperor God Festival is vegetarianism truly followed.
