“Bad Service & Food - Would not return”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2007

The service here is bad compared to other Thai restaurants. The waiting times are long and when I asked the waiters how long it would take for the first dish, they uncourteously said the food would be out shortly but in fact, it took another 1 hour. When the food was served, they just plopped it down and did not return to ask if we needed anything else or to refill our water. In fact, when we asked for more rice, it took them another 40 minutes to bring it - and we were almost done with the meal. When we said we might not need it anymore, they looked at us unhappily and left it on the table and then charged us for it. Unbelievable! They could certainly use a lesson in customer service. The size of the dishes are very small and the quality of the food is just so-so. Everything tasted over-salty and fundamentally had the same flavor. There are better Thai restaurants, and more friendly wait staff, in Ithaca - I would definitely not go back here.

“Choose wisely!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2007

I had dinner with two friends at Thai Cuisine, and the impression we came away with is this: choose your menu items wisely! We had ped long song (crispy duck on a bed of spinach with peanut sauce), and it was so "crisp" that it was virtually impossible to cut and difficult to bite. A shame, since the sauce was delicious. We also ordered a vegetarian dish that turned out to be remarkably bland. Not subtle. Bland. The hit of the evening, though, was whole fish in garlic sauce. Perfect texture, delicious flavor. We would have done well to order two of these and skip the rest. Our server was friendly and helpful with wine choices, and the ambience is always conducive to a nice evening, so overall it was good--just not quite as good as we expected.

“The Best Thai Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2007

Had an excellent meal here over the Labor Day 2006 weekend. Our friends, who visit Ithaca several times a year, raved about this restaurant and they were absolutely right.

This is the best Thai food I've had outside of Thailand and I live in the NYC area where Thai restaurants are plentiful and good. Each dish was lovely to look at and delightful to eat. The seasoning was perfect and brought out the flavors perfectly. Service is very pleasant and efficient. Prices were very fair and a value for food this good.

The next time I'm in Ithaca this will be a sure stop.
