Union City’s first Thai restaurant has brought exceptionally delicious cuisine to hungry New Jersey diners since 2009. 5 Stars may have a functional ambiance, but the food is said to be the real highlight here. Dishes here are authentic and richly flavored with a variety of tantalizing spices. The menu is extensive, and just about everything on it is well-regarded.
Some dishes that draw raves from frequent eaters include the lemongrass crispy tilapia, which gives the nearly tasteless fish a bold dose of texture and pizazz, as well as the drunken noodles. The curries here are also piquant and delectable, with the yellow curry drawing special praise. If you have room for dessert, don’t miss the crispy bananas with coconut ice cream.
