Mana Thai is the latest arrival on Millcreek's curry scene

The Millcreek-Holladay area is home to a cluster of the best Thai restaurants in the Salt Lake Valley, and a new contender has joined the scrum.

Driving the news: The tiny Mana Thai Cafe opened less than two weeks ago at 2821 S. 2300 East.

Erin's review: My family's dishes were notably fresh, with perfectly cooked veggies and noodles that didn't gum up during the drive home from the takeout window.

  • Even our shrimp and beef orders had a subtle pork-like flavor that I haven't tasted in Thai fare before.

Zoom in: The Ba Mee Moo Dang ($16.95) was a special treat, with a sweeter noodle sauce than you might expect.

Pro tip: I wasn't given a spiciness range or selection, and all of the dishes were well within my comfort zone.

  • If you prefer more heat, mention it when you order.
