A seafood-centric family-style menu and a serious #NoPadThaiZone disclaimer makes it clear Fish Cheeks has something a little different to offer.Featuring dishes found all over the Land of Smiles, you won’t even notice there is no Pad Thai on the menu with all the intriguing and delectable options to choose from:

Kickstart your meal with this perfect appetizer. Shockingly, an ideal balance between crisp and tender, juicy chicken is achieved with no breading or coating...which means you’ll have room for that extra dish you were 50/50 on ordering.

There's nothing more comforting than an overflowing mound of fried rice. Big chunks of perfectly seasoned crab heighten the already insane flavor profile of this tasty dish. You’ll be scooping spoonfuls onto your plate in fear it will get gobbled up by others. Maybe you won’t have room for that extra dish after all. Pro tip: remember to douse each spoonful with green sauce!

Make sure you can really handle “Thai spicy” before you dig in. This dish is definitely not for the faint of heart. Deeply-flavored curry is packed with heat but, somehow, does not overwhelm the fat chunks of sweet king crab meat.

Tom Yum Goong is a traditional soup known for its addictive flavor profile of spicy, sour, and savory. This version does not disappoint and is served in a large hot pot commonly used in northern China. The right amount of creaminess keeps the broth light and refreshing and copious amounts of perfectly cooked shrimp are simply the icing on top.
