With a reputation as hot as the
chilies in its jungle curry, Sailors Thai canteen attracts lunchtime crowds who come to
eat noodles, clams, curries, and Thai salads at its single, stainless steel table lined
with some 40 chairs. Four other tables overlook the cruise ship terminal and the quay.
Downstairs, the a la carte restaurant serves simple and cutting-edge food, like a
pineapple curry of mussels and steamed duck soup with pickles.
