“Just so-so, especially given we had a fly in one of our dishes!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2011

We chose this restaurant again because it has gluten-free options. They were limited and were only listed in the take-out menu (why can't they be displayed on the main menu???).

Our daughter that has the gluten allergy ordered a curry. On her first spoon full, she noticed a fly! We sent the dish back, and a new one was prepared. They left the old one on the counter I assume to reassure use we would not be served the same dish again... For that trouble and inconvenience, we were given a whopping 10% off our bill...big deal! That dish should have been comp'ed right off the bat.

The food was typical chain-restaurant quality (lack thereof...). I've had much better Thai food. I wouldn't bother coming back to this chain. Just not up to par.

“Missed the fusion part.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2011

Unfortunately the food did not live up to our expectations. Seafood in black bean sauce and a vegetarian dish with tofu, mixed vegetable and rice were below average. The tofu was soggy with oil and the black bean sauce was lacking in taste.

The safest way is to go with soups and noodle dishes. I tried the hot and spice soup and it was very good.

Service was good, prompt and attentive.

Probably a slight price increase would justify the use of more elaborate ingredients to increase food quality and overall dinning experience.

“GREAT FOOD, GREAT PEOPLE AND GREAT PRICES”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2010

Friendly helpful staff - DANIEL IS THE BEST! Lunches are reasonably priced, good sized portions with terrific service. Cater to shopping crowd daily but tremendous rapport with customers. Many repeat clients like us & all of our friends. For a restaurant located in a mall (with outside access as well) the atmosphere is inviting and exceptionally clean! Enjoy - Lynda
