good food, iffy service – i've been to this place twice - the first time, the service was a HUGE disappointment, but the pad thai was delicious so i decided to give it another chance. my friend and i went in at around 7 pm, and we thought the place was closed - the entire place was empty and the waitress at first just sat there and stared at us. but she was prompt in getting our water and our orders, and our food came at a reasonable pace. when more customers began to come in, the solitary waitress definitely struggled as she handled bringing out all the food, greeting new customers, and helping the ones already seated.
unlike the other reviewer here, i actually really like the pad thai at this place - probably my favorite out of all the thai places i've been to (which is quite a lot). it is pricey ($15), but so are all the other restaurants on chatham main st.
this is definitely a place where you can't be in a rush. with the right company and ample amounts of time though, it's a pretty enjoyable place.
Terrible service & food. – Service is terrible. When it gets crowded, the staff becomes confused. We had to wait 20 minutes for the menu - this place is surely not equipped to manage an influx of customers. As for the food, it is definitely not authentic thai food - not to mention that it was very pricey for what they serve you. I ordered a chicken with red curry sauce and there were literally only about 5 or 6 chunks of chicken with lots of curry sauce - not to mention that the chicken was tough and cold - this was $15.95 - I've never seen this dish priced at this price and tasted so bad. Also, as for their pad thai, it was $16.95 for just a handful of noodles - not to mention that it was sooo sweet - really, not the right thing here. This place is really not worth the time! The cook and staff should really consider improvements!
