Maybe I'm spoiled by living in Seattle were there is an abundance of good Thai restaurants...maybe I caught them on a bad night, but once you take a peak at the kitchen, I think not.
I have eaten at dozens of Thai restaurants and the one true fact is they all use limited cookwear and heat source...gas stove top, a wok, some basic pans and long bamboo mixing sticks.
Toi's kitchen had a 30 year old electric stove top, microwave, pots for boiling.
The meal tasted like they used all of these "Americanized " tools to the detriment of taste.
I asked about the use of the microwave and they said they only use it for heating the "sauces". Are you freeking kidding me...the sauce is suppose to come from the rendered juices in the cooking process.
I ordered Phad Thai with chicken that was bland, over cooked noodles (probably boiled), no peanuts, no fried egg and a side of rice ( chunks of crispy due to sitting for too long).
My second item was cachew beef, and oh my was this horrid. The meat was tough ( cooked too long at low heat) and was way over salted. The usual vegetables that accompanied it were sliced way to thin to survive the cooking process and were non existent on the plate.
The third item was a simple order of stir fried vegetables. My 5 year old could cook these better. First off, if you're going to cook Thai, cut the vegtable thick. Please know that you don't place raw vegetables into a food processor to "cut" them. Basic cooking knowledge confirms that when you do, they come out paper thin and won't hold firm during heat. My goodness, the mush that came out on my plate looked like over cooked stew without the meat. It was a green/ brown blob on my plate that had paper thin slices of carrot and something that looked like kale or lettuce and 2 small pieces of broccoli. It was inedible. All this in an in airconditioned hot room, 40 minute wait and $42...what a ripoff. Avoid like the plague ( unless you don't know any better).
