ANYONE who thought authenticity couldn't kill you probably never ate Thai food in Bangkok. You don't call it The Land of a Thousand Smiles for nothing when they watch you with gentle mirth as you implode in chilli-induced agony - if not immediately, then several hours later, usually in an inconvenient location. All because you didn't want to be the loser who opts for tourist-level spiciness, insisting on, well, authenticity.
We're reminded of this as we step into Sarai, which is about as authentically Thai as a Gucci tote in a Chatuchak stall....
