E-San Sab Sab Thai Cuisine (Pete's Thai Cuisine)

12032 N. Cave Creek Road Phoenix, AZ 85020 | North Phoenix | 602-674-9999

Location Description:

The former chef and owner of Siam in Glendale and Thai E-San in Central Phoenix, Pete (or, in Thai, Tossapis) Pholtosa's newest venture at Cave Creek Road and Cactus features offerings of classic Thai cuisine as well as specific dishes from his former home in northeastern Thailand. In a bright room with white linen-topped tables and a wraparound bar, traditionalists can enjoy spicy red curry and hot and sour tom yum soup, but for a unique (and at times daring) gastronomical adventure, stick with the bold flavors of E-San-style dishes like larb and papaya salad. For an affordable sampling, you can't beat the $7.77 buffet from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. every day but Saturday.
