Rim Tanon describes itself as serving Thai street food, but the menu mostly consists of dishes that one would expect to find at other local Thai spots. Dishes such as the papaya salad include an interactive element, which tasks diners with mashing their own peanuts. A chicken wing appetizer had a welcome spiciness, and Khao Soi delivered the right levels of spice and creaminess from its coconut milk. As a neighborhood destination, it’s a welcome addition.
