Located in the heart of the Queen Anne neighborhood, Racha Noodles' upscale decor seems to indicate that it
has to be geared toward the "foodie" crowd who are not that interested in real Thai food. However, I do not
believe this to be the case.
With one meal of the standard (for me) Ginger Tofu it is hard to tell the strengths and weaknesses of the restaurant, but the food I sampled was very good. In addition, the menu has the variety of dishes and choice of spiciness to at least offer the potential for authentic Thai food.
In addition to the quality of the ginger dish (which was above average for Seattle) there were a number of good signs: the restaurant is clean, service is good, and the kitchen is out in the open. The staff wears traditional Thai clothing, and although this has nothing to do with the food, it does help create a pleasant experience.
The restauarant stays open until midnight, and 2 a.m. Fri.-Sun. (be aware, however, that there are live bands on weekends).
Racha Noodles is a little on the expensive side, and with the ginger dish being about the same as several others I sampled, I would not necessarily make a recommendation to drive across town to eat here. However, I would make a recommendation to eat here if you are in the neighborhood.
