818 W. Broadway Rd. Tempe, 85282 (480) 967-9121 M-Th 11 a.m.-9 p.m., F-Sa 11 a.m.-9:30 p.m., closed Sundays

Located between a conspicuous hookah lounge and a Subway, this gem of authenticity sticks ouit nicely. Inside, the decorations include the ceiling of a traditional hut that seems to protrude through the kitchen, eastern knick-knacks lining the counter and dimly lit booths. A family-owned joint, it not only has exceptional service, but a member of the family can almost always be found watching an Asian soap opera among the diners. The menu is vast and extremely vegan-friendly, but for a classic try the lemongrass basil ($9.95); vegetables, spicy garlic sauce, crisp basil and your choice of protein make up this delicious feast.
