Came here at 1220 PM. About 5 tables full. Ordered pad Thai. At 1 PM, food finally arrives. 40 minutes is too long to wait for lunch. Won't be back.

I love Thai food. I've eaten it all over North America, both in-restaurant and take out. i have never noticed a difference in either...until now.

I did take out at Singha Thai, and this is the mot disappointing Thai food experience I have ever had. The food was disgustingly oily (like, oil was the first ingredient oily), almost to the point of being inedible. The flavor and aroma were uniike any Thai food I have ever experienced...it had a bakelite smell to it, like a transport truck applying it's brakes in a panic stop. It wasn't inexpensive either, comparable to the very excellent "Anna" on Holland Avenue's price point. But at least the food at Anna is wonderful. I would never recommend Singha Thai unless you really, really like oil-soaked food...

Went with a group for lunch. Service was a bit inattentive given the few other customers but we were still out in less than an hour and there were 12 of us. All lunch entrees came with soup. It was a bit on the weak side but not unlikeable. The lunch special seemed a bit expensive at $16.95 but a couple of people in the group had it and it was very generous. I had the green curry chicken which was served with rice. Not spectacular but quite good. Total bill of just over $12. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. Will not rush back but would also not hesitate to return.

Three of us went to this restaurant, and it was empty when we arrived (note, we've eaten here a few times before). The hostess, who was probably in her 50's, seated us right away then she went to the counter and ignored us for 15 minutes. The restaurant is still empty at this point, so we call her over "Sorry, we're ready to order now". She comes by, takes our order with no eye contact. Now three other guests show up in the restaurant and she seated the couple next to our table. We receive our appetizer after 10 minutes (5 shrimp rolls). She cleared our table once we were done. After another 10 minutes the couple that came in after us received their main courses. We waited another 20 minutes and then one of us approached the hostess to ask her if our food was going to be ready soon. She replied "it's coming, it's coming". 10 minutes later she comes out with our plates and says "sorry, the chef thought you wanted to take your time". EXCUSE ME? what kind of ignorant comment is that? How rude to serve other customers before us when we were the first ones to arrive. To assume that we wanted to take our time?
We are turned off completely by this restaurant. There are other places in Ottawa that are managed by bright professionals who actually care about their customers and know something about being courteous and accommodating. The food is good - maybe take-out would be the best option. But beware, they might take 2 hours to prepare your take-out because they'll think you want to take your time.
