Wouldn't come here again . . . – My roommate and I were in the area, so I decided to try Pad Thai Shack. I ordered the Pad Thai, and she had eaten here before and opted out of buying food at Pad Thai Shack again. I wanted to keep and open mind. To say the least, I was very disappointed. My Pad Thai was so extremely bland. I have never had bland Thai food before. I found the food to lack not only spiciness but flavor as well. I wouldn't eat here again.
not worth the bhat – my boyfirend and i are thai food lovers- and in fact have had the pleasure to enjoy bona fide Thai cuisine in Thailand. We were anxiously looking forward to trying out pad thai shack and were thoroughly disappointed. The tom yum soup was oily and almost copletely stock except for a few pieces of greasy tofu. The chicken pad thai had 2 pieces of chicken and almost no flavor. For true thai food take your business elsewhere.
I love Thai food, unfortunately their pad thai was the worst I've ever had, and their chicken pho was disgusting. Perhaps they are looking to attract an American audience with bland food, but those familiar with Thai & Vietnamese cooking will have to go elsewhere. The atmosphere is certainly cute, but I prefer good food.
Spunky – This little "shack" is merely no shack at all. The atomoshpere is warm, welcoming and spunky. They could maybe add a couple tables along the side wall where the bench is, perhaps for those who prefer not to eat facing the street. The food is excellent and extremely fresh-made to order. Try every dish along with their specials-you can't go wrong!
