Over the past few weeks, I very much enjoyed visiting some great Binghamton eateries during Binghamton's popular Restaurant Week.  Thursday wraps up the Spring edition of Binghamton Restaurant Week.  There still is time to enjoy a great 3 or 4 course meal at a discount price and help the Boys and Girls Clubs of Broome Country and Vines.

Last night, I was treated to some great Thai cuisine at Thai Time in Downtown Binghamton.  This really cool restaurant is located at 96 Front Street, close to Binghamton High School and the Binghamton Club.

Thai Time has been a favorite of mine since they opened their doors a few years back.  What I like most is it's family owned and operated.  Everything is freshly prepared.  You can tell the chefs and staff enjoy themselves and the quality of the food is superb.

If Thai food is a new adventure for you, don't be afraid.  Not all Thai food is spicy.  They are used to adjusting the temperature to your taste.  In fact, you can order with no spice at all.  Thai food at Thai Time is very fresh, using the best ingredients.  Fish, seafood, chicken, beef and veggies are popular options on the menu.

During Restaurant Week, they have a nice introduction to their regular menu.  I am a sucker for good fried calamari.  If you order as your first course, expect a generous portion, and the calamari to be done perfect, not greasy like so many places in the area overdo.

My friends enjoyed the Drunkin' Noodles with chicken and shrimp.  I had to taste it to see if it was as good as I remembered it and it was.  I had the Pattaya Noodle with shrimp and chicken.  This entree had a bit of a bite with a fantastic peanut sauce flavor.  This is one selection that I never tried in the all my visits to Thai Time and I would definitely order again.

Desserts are huge at Thai Time. The choice is not easy for Restaurant Week.  My friends loved the chocolate lava cake and cheesecake egg roll.  Trust me.  You can't go wrong with either.

One thing I noticed is Thai Time does a huge pick up and delivery business.  Call ahead for your order or check on their expanding delivery area.

I look forward to returning over the next couple of weeks to grab some eats on their new outside deck/patio overlooking the river, which is off their new bar and downstairs dining area.  The Binghamton area only has a handful of outside dining areas and Thai Time is the only one with a river view.  Should make for some nice outside dining.

I highly recommend Thai Time for some great Asian cuisine.
