Needs a service OVERHAUL - oh, and hairnets... – I'm not sure there is enough room to accurately describe my visit to this restaurant. I will start with what I want a reader to know first - never EVER visit this restaurant! We arrived at opening - noon. I ordered the basil rolls for my appetizer - 5 minutes later I was informed by the very sweet waitress that the appetizer chef had not arrived for his shift and would I like something else. I told her I'd wait a few more minutes for him to arrive and if he didn't I would switch to an alternative - stuff happens, no big deal, right? Wrong. Less then a minute later a greasy, obviously unbathed appetizer chef came through the door. Hard night last night? We've all had them, no biggie, right? Wrong. The waitress, now obviously embarrassed came to me to inform me that the appetizer chef DIDN'T FEEL LIKE MAKING BASIL ROLLS AND WAS THEREFORE REFUSING! She even tried to convinced him to show her how it was done, and again he REFUSED! I have never been so shocked in my life! I have to say I was less shocked (how could I not be) when one of our entrees arrived with a big giant wavy black hair on it. We showed the very sweet waitress and without a hint of embarrassment or shame she proceeded to inform us that she thought she had "put enough gel in her hair" that day to keep that from happening, giving us the impression that it was not the first time and she was working to overcome this hazard of having her as a waitress. Whilst I will say that their ingredients appear to be fresh and of high quality, and the concept is great, you could not pay me to eat in that "restaurant" again.
Overpriced and not so good – I just had lunch at Amaryn's and was amazed that I spend $23 for take out. My order was a spider roll, miso soup and a seaweed salad. The miso was the worst I have ever had, I could not even finish it. It tasted like bland dirty hot water. The spider roll was o'kay, but did not even have the tempura claws. I expected a lot more for $23.
Hesitated, but ended up surprising us! – My boyfriend and I usually do our grocery shopping at the Publix, and we've been eyeing Amaryn's for a while, not sure what to make of it. We finally decided one Sunday afternoon to get some dinner there before doing our usual weekly shopping. The decor was a bit of a turnoff as well as the music, but we went ahead and ordered. I got the Mussaman Curry, and my boyfriend ordered a custom noodle bowl with chicken and lemongrass broth. We found a spot to sit, and I was a bit anxious since most of the customers coming in were waiting for takeout. After about 10 minutes, we both got huge servings of our food. The bowls were just heaping and steaming with food! This was the exciting part. The flavors were intoxicatingly good. I was surprised that all the flavors in my curry were so well balanced, the rice was perfectly prepared too. The noodles that my boyfriend ordered also were delightful. Amaryn's seems short staffed, which usually equates to really slow service and a long wait, but we were really pleasantly surprised, and the food was really good too. Great thai for a great price and convenient to boot!
Editorial Review – Restaurant allows customers to make their own bowl from a variety of Thai and sushi choices.
I been at Suri's a couple times. The service is always horrible, the waiter always get our food mixed up with some other table's. We took our dog there one time because there was an open space area outside. We also called before and the lady said it was okay to bring him. Later we got there then we ordered, that is when the owner said we need to leave. I will never go back again even tho the food is great. WORST SERVICE EVER...
good service, bad food – the stuff there are really nice. the restaurant is clean too. however, food here is not. i ordered sushi combination with rainbow roll and california roll. they were both quality of below average. my bf had some stir fry and he didnt like it at all.
