image1Just a short walk from the Shelter Island Harbor sits Supannee House of Thai, a bustling restaurant with an extensive menu of delicious Thai cuisine. Call ahead for reservations or you may have to wait for a table, especially on a weekend night.

Your favorite Thai dishes, such as pad Thai and Panang curry, are available with a wide variety of proteins, including mixed veggies, tofu, chicken, duck, beef, pork, shrimp, scallops or mixed seafood.

Try the pad see ew, my favorite.  It’s a noodle dish with your choice of meat stir-fried with soy sauce, broccoli, carrots and Chinese broccoli. It’s the perfect mix of sweet and salty.

The green curry is another great choice. Bamboo shoots, green beans, Thai eggplant, bell peppers and Thai basil add substance to the green chili curry and coconut milk broth. Other curry options include yellow, red, Panang and mango and include a bowl of jasmine or brown rice. Be sure to let your waiter know how spicy you would like your dish.

Choose from a fish cake appetizer with curry paste and Thai spices or the giant perch entrée, a flavorful crispy whole fish served with jasmine rice. Even the classic Thai soup, tom yum, has a seafood option by adding cod, halibut or white sea bass to the broth.

Vegetarians can have many of the dishes — especially the noodle, rice and stir-fry dishes prepared without meat.

For dessert, try the fried banana with coconut ice cream. The banana is wrapped like an egg roll and deep fried, adding a delicious crunch to the sweet treat.

On weekdays, between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm, they offer lunch specials. They are open from 5:00 to 9:30 pm for dinner.

Supannee is also available for takeout, perfect if you prefer to take your meal back to the boat.
