#2 in Montgomery, I had to try this new listing on Tripadvisor. I haven't seen them listed on prior visits. I really hoped dinner here would be anything approaching the favorable review, bUT IT WASN"T! Like Lorowell's review before me, I found every part of the food to be lacking, and in the case of the Spider Roll, unrecognizable in form or taste.
Net-Net: Much better food at Sushi Cafe or Lek's Tate of Thailand.
So, the strip mall location is convenient. I found the decore to be modern, upbeat, and tasteful. The hostess and service staff were very attentive and service was prompt throughout dinner. My Sweet Tea glass barely got half empty before it was being refilled.
I ordered a Spring Roll appetitizer, a Spider Roll and their Pad Thai dish. The Spring Rolls were small but well cooked, only they had no flavor. I think they might have been vegetable Spring rolls but I hadn't order their vegetable - no flavor.
When you order Spider Roll, you expect a certain appearance and taste. This Spider Roll was not a recognizble. It was built inside out, and was smothered in a pink spicy hot sauce that made it basically inedible. It was perhaps the single worse roll I've ever eaten.
Then we get to the Pad Thai. Had I not taken a bite I would ave given it a 5 on appearance. It was a generous portion pile high and contained many pieces of shrimp and chicken as well as bean sprouts and a topping of crushed peanuts.
The first bite was disappointing as their was no Pad Thai peanut sauce taste. The brown sauce was a generic, tasteless sauce used under many American Chinese dishes. Overpowering, bland, tasteless - I couldn't finish it. I picked out the perfectly cooked chicken pieces and shrimp and I was done.
No even close to a good tasting Pad Thai dish.
I hope they could intern at other MOntgomery sushi or Thai restaurants to learn how to really learn how to cook these dishes as that was the only but most important missing part of my visit.
