So today is Dec. 21st, and probably one of the busiest restaurant weekends of the year. I called Thai Nine around 10:45 a.m. to confirm our 5:30 p.m. reservation for our office Christmas party (a reservation that I made on October 31st.)
The young lady who answered couldn't find the reservation and told me that she would have the mgr. call me when she got it (which would be' ANY MINUTE.') So of course, I anxiously await the call because, as I said before, today is going to be one of the busiest restaurant weekends for the year - I'm sure our office isn't the only one wanting to take the employees out for dinner/party just before the holiday.
About 45 minutes later, still no call, so I call back and ask for the mgr. I'm told she's in, but she's too busy to speak with me. They were just opening up and had to prepare for lunch. Seriously... are you kidding me? I'm told that I can leave my name and number, and she'll call me back, to which I replied, I already did that.
So in a panic, I get off the phone and start searching for an alternate place for us to enjoy a meal. I call the Melting Pot (great food there, BTW,) explain my dilemma, and I'm told that they could get our group of 22 in one of their party rooms if we can get there by 5pm. I tell them book us, and asked for an email confirmation -- which I was happily provided.
Ok - so maybe I should have called before the DAY OF our party to confirm, but I guess I expected more from a restaurant such as Thai Nine than the jilt I got. Might I add, I rec'd a phone message from the mgr. while I was on the phone with the Melting Pot - she couldn't find our reservation, and there was no way they could accommodate us. No apology, no 'maybe we could seat you separately,' or 'maybe if you came in earlier or later,' nothing. Wow - customer service was definitely lacking.
My husband and I have been to Thai Nine on a handful of occasions, and always enjoyed the food, but I can promise, they will NEVER see our faces in that restaurant again.
Complete FAIL on their part.
Its Okay – I been to thai 9 about 5 times since I have move to dayton, but every time I have gone there the food has gone down. Its is a great place to have drinks and but as for good thai or any kind of oriental food I would rate this as fair. I don't mind paying for good food but or the food they create and the money you spend does not add up. There are other Places in dayton that are a little cheaper but the food quality is 100% times better. Also to when I go to a Thai restaurant or any Oriental place I look and see how many of our people are there eating and in my times of being there usually the only Asian there dining. If Thai 9 wants to stay in business redo your menu and improve quality.
Beware of charges to your credit card – On my last visit there, I noticed that they charged my credit card (comparing my receipt with the cc statement) for an amount significantly more than what I had authorized.
I contacted the manager of the restaurant and discussed the matter with him. He referred me to the operations manager. I spoke with her, she found the receipt for the amount that I authorized, but then she asked me to provide a copy of my statement to "prove" that they submitted an amount greater than the signed receipt. They have finally acknowledged the overcharge but to date have failed to correct it. I had to notify my credit card company of the fraudulent charge.
Food overrated, but good atmosphere – My title pretty much says it all. The restaurant is in a great location and is absolutely beautiful. Wonderful job with the renovation of the building. It could certainly serve well for a romantic dinner or out with friends. But it is crowded on weekends and I don't think they take reservations.
But the food is... eh. Not bad, but not great either. I guess I'd call it pretty good. But it is certainly overrated and does not deserve the praise that it receives, in my opinion. The sushi is good, but not unlike anything that you can get at the other places in town. Every time I've had the curry it seemed that rich flavors were replaced with an excess of salt. The drinks are overpriced.
So, I don't avoid it, but I don't seek it out or crave it. Friends inevitably seem to suggest it when figuring out where to meet for dinner. Apparently it is the place to go. But I just don't think that this is because the food is anything spectacular, but for other reasons altogether.
Best Thai in Town – Absolutely love this place. The food is great and the kitchen staff is willing to custom make any dish! Our faves are pad thai, chicken laap, and anything from the sushi menu. They also have great soups...yummy
Best Pad Thai – This place is great (and addictive!) if you know what to order. The pad thai is sensational - perfect blend of spicy and sweet. The spicy fried rice also hits the spot, and the curry is excellent. The sushi rolls are also very tasty - try the mexican roll for something a little different. And if you like bloody mary's, you'll be in heaven here! Great atmosphere and service as well... you'll love it.
Great Thai Food – We drove up from Cincinnati to eat at Thai 9...and we were very pleased. The food was fantastic, far better than any Thai food in Cincinnati, the sushi was great....it's a cute place with lots of atmosphere...parking can be a slight challenge though. The prices are a tad high, but it's worth every penny!
A+ dining experience – Thai Nine is one of the best restaurants that I have eaten at. Every time I go there the service is always excellent and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend Thai Nine to anyone who likes this type of cuisine.
Definitely try this place! – We just moved to the area and love Thai food so we thought we'd try out Thai Nine. It was much better than we hoped! The decor was very modern and the food was very good. There was a large menu selection. The service was fast and very friendly too. I loved that the portions were a healthy-size, meaning they are probably smaller than what you may expect. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and we can't wait to eat there again!
