“Friday must be cook's night off!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

I rarely review restaurants, but this was truly disappointing. In the case of Chantanee, I have given it several chances based on TripAdvisor recommendations. Over a period of a few years, Chantanee has ranged from passable to reasonably good. Tonight, I found myself in the neighborhood and walked in. It was a Friday night. The restaurant was about 2/3 full.

Ordering the crab stuffed fried wonton for a starter, the only real taste was fried wonton. The stuffing could have been cream cheese or toothpaste, but no discernable taste of the elusive crab. The lamb massaman curry entre arrived almost a full hour after it was ordered. The obviously distressed waitress offered another drink to mollify me - it was also on the bill.

Sadly, the curry was really pretty awful. The lamb had seemingly died of old age and was further insulted by over cooking. The curry itself was insipid. No attempt, was given to disguise its vintage or to "freshen it up".

I occasionally throw caution to the wind and ordered "4 star" heat. I need not have worried. The amount of picante in the curry would have passed at Gerber's. Asian restaurants of all stripes should understand rice - even brown rice which in this case was over cooked to gumminess.

Do not tell my mother, but I left the meal half-eaten - probably an all-time first.

Enough is enough. Sa wat dee Chantanee.

“Yummy Mango/Rice Dessert”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Average restaurant but they do have the yummy mango/rice dessert! Well worth the parking hassle just for the dessert. IF you can walk - walk there. If not, enjoy the parking maze! Nice staff.
