The Star Thai. restaurant on Minzu rd conveniently located very near where I live. As far as I know the best sit down Thai. restaurant in this part of the city. If only we had a Greek and a good Indian restaurant. Living in a city like Hsinchu you celebrate these little culinary treasures - I still remark about how great it is that the salad bar at the Lake Shore Hotel has 5 different kinds of lettuce. It's not Taipei. It's not even Halifax.
