great atmosphere – I love this place. The thai food is spectacular; and they have some great vegetarian options. The food is consistent, and the specials are always creative. Try the thai tea martini; i drink it in like 5 seconds. The interior design is a superb asian-modern. I wish it was open later, but that is my issue with all Atlanta restaurants.
BEST OF THE BEST THAI FOOD!!!!!! – The very first time I had gone was for a GIRLS AFTERNOON, and I haven't stopped going since! Everyone I have turned on to it, has gone back! I would definitely reccommend you trying it at least once! Great place for an intimate date. The seating is close together but the atmosphere that it creates makes the experience all worth while. NO WAIT, JUST GREAT!!
Great Place to Take a Date for Delicious Thai Food! – The food here is so delicious and fresh! Dishes are very unique, pefectly spiced, with lots of flavor. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed the veggie tempura (not too oily, with fresh veggies), all the vegetarian options (can order entrees with or without meat), and the blueberry spring rolls for dessert. These were divine! Served with coconut ice cream and mango sauce, it really topped off the meal. Our server was extremely friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was great. Nice place to impress a date.
Good solid food – Spoon is a good lunch spot in the Means Street area. I'm not a big fan of Thai, but the food is fresh and spicy! Service is decent, though not always attentive. The only drawbacks are - the seating, it's very tight and not comfortable - and the noise, it gets extremely loud.
Great food, great service – This is a great place for a reasonably priced date. We were seated immediately around 6:30 on a wednesday. I highly recommend the tempura calamari, and the golden red snapper entree. Everything was served very hot, and service didn't slow down even when a group of about 15 came in (I happened to notice they all got served simulatneously, with steam rising from the bowls). So all in all the service and food are great, we will be returning!
My new Thai place – This place is my new lunch haven. The food is incredible and the staff is so attentive and pleasant. My husband and I were just driving around one day looking for somewhere to eat lunch and we popped in and I have been going there ever since, at least once a week. I have never been disappointed. I have suggested it to my coworkers as well and they have also been blown away.
Best Thai Food In The City – Spoon was everything it was advertised to be. They serve very good AUTHENTIC Thai food, and the service was impecable. My waiter constantly checked in on our party, and he made sure we had everything we needed, and that the food was to our liking. He was not Thai, but he knew the menu extremely well and impressed everyone in our party. The top 25 dessert mousse cake our waiter told us about did not dissapoint and i will definitely come back to enjoy another one of those after my meal. I had the Golden Snapper and it was absolutely delicious. My wife had the Double Soft Shell Crab, and she had nothing but good things to say about it. Great place for a quick bite to eat, but at the same time a great place for a romantic dinner. The bartender is very talented and he made us very good drinks. This is defintely one of the top Thai restaurants in the city of Atlanta
Unfriendly service mediocre food – Read the good reviews and decided to try. This was the most somber, unsmiling unfriendly service I've seen in a while. No one greeted us as we entered, they just said "Do you have a reservation?" and proceeded to seat us (that's a good thing for a Friday night). No one smiled, there was no rapport apparent among the servers, and our server, who never introduced himself made us feel kind of stupid with his flat affect as we attempted to be friendly customers. His vibe was like "just place your order & eat your food 'cause I could care less." The food was mediocre in my opinion, and it was plopped down on our table in sticky bowls with no presentation whatsoever by another unsmiling person who brought our food. Although the price was reasonable for their "classic Thai" dishes, the lack of presentation and the sticky bowl made it more of a $6.99 meal than the $11 meal that it was. The Thai iced tea was lukewarm with a little rapidly melting ice at the top. Even their award winning chocolate mousse dessert was ok, but I didn't get "Top 25 Desserts in Atlanta" from it. What made us decide not to come back was when the hostess came and hovered by our table and gave us an "oh, you're still here" look, again with no smile or engagement and then no one said "good-bye" "thank you" "come again" or any of the things that you expect from a fine dining establishment after you've dropped $40 for a beef bowl, iced tea and chocolate pudding. That same hostess actually looked at us in the doorway and then just looked away as we were leaving(we think we're nice-looking people:) It was just a bummer. After reading the reviews I still don't get it. Mediocre food, unfriendly service and $5 to park? Why bother when there are so many better places.
Good Curry – We arrived at 12:30 for a weekday lunch and did not have to wait to be seated, but the crowd picked up closer to 1:00pm. The tables are a bit crowded and the plastic cups that they serve beverages in are scratched and dingy looking-- not appealing. However, my panang with chicken was very good, not overpriced, and was served pretty quickly. I would have preferred a lunch special that included a drink and a spring roll or something of that nature...
Flavorful, Fresh, Thai cuisine with Flair! – What a wonderfully designed urban spot for Thai cuisine. I finally had the opportunity to see what the fuss is all about....I ordered the Massamun Curry with Chicken and coconut soup with shrimp...excellent! My friend had Samros(3 flavored stir fry ) it was bold and tasty. Great atmosphere...ambiance...definitely a place for a romantic date!
