OK so it's a tradition to go to a movie and have Chinese food on Xmas but this year we decided to shake it up and go for Thai food with another couple. There were 8 of us in the party - two families. So how to begin - the service and the way the owners treated us at this restaurant make it impossible for me to say anything good about the food - which actually was average anyway. So even though it was Xmas the restaurant wasn't all that busy. We asked to have our check separate and quite frankly I think it was more than they could handle. Our friend's appetizers came out and ours never did. It wasn't that they were slightly late but that we had to ask repeatedly for them. Then even before our appetizers came out two of the three main courses that our friends had ordered came out. The waiter was oblivious to how bad this service was! Then three out of our four entrees were served - more than 20 minutes after our friends had theirs and still the one missing dish four our friends didn't appear. I asked about our fourth entree and the waiter was totally lost. Of course it came out slightly before our check. I don't want to bore you but it never got better.
So we had enough and asked to see the manager and the silly waiter said he wan't there. Oh come on. Then we asked to speak to the owner and we were told she was cooking. So they could have salvaged something if they had comped our drinks or taken something but they didn't. They did offer one dessert - oh come on ! To add insult to injury they added the gratuity to the bill because we were eight even though we had two checks. When we complained to the waiter about not getting anything taken off the bill he said he couldn't because it was in the computer. How lame.
So too bad for you Taste of Thai. There are tons of better restaurants to go to in the Del Mar area. I've lived here for 13 years and never gone to your restaurant. Not because I had heard anything bad - it was just one of those things. Now I have a reason not to go. This place treated us horribly. I'd rather spend my money someplace else.
Oh and to top if off they were shuttling furniture in an out of the restaurant and leaving the door open every time they went in or out. It was chilly outside and I was put off regarding their insensitivity to their customers.
