“Thai ... Dissappointing !”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

Went with great expectations...returned disapointed. The menu was limited to chicken and veggies...no item in fish which is most unusual for a Thai Cafe. The shrimp came for an additional amount ! The house salad was a small serving of lettuce, neglible onion strips, carrot strips, and little pieces of tomatoes. The batter fried calamari was very very low on salt and not well done. The shrimp in the main dish tasted totally bland, more like blanched in steam and served less salt.
There was just one person attending to the customers that did not bode well for the restaurant. The ambience was good with lovely musical instruments hung on the walls. Prices very steep for the quality of food and portions served compared to other Thai restaurants.

“Not as good as it used to be”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2012

Good attentive service, but the food seems to be an afterthought. It seems as if they can't remember their own recipes and cook the same dishes consistently. Too bad. I used to eat there every week.

“disgusting”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2009

I used to love Thai Gai Yang. Went back last night and was served literally inedible food. It smelled like cat p/ss. My dinner partner theorized that they used bad fish sauce.

Could not go back to try again even if I wanted to--my stomach would rebel.
