I have been to this restaurant three times for breakfast and once for dinner. Here are my experiences. First time for breakfast we were a party of about 20 that made a reservation. We arrive and find a dark almost night club like seating area. No coffee brewed, and five menus, yep 5. It took nearly a long time to order let alone be fed. Food was good when it was delivered. Again for company breakfast, apparently we did not learn our lesson. This time more menus but still not enough. And long wait which is to be expected and some coffee but not nearly enough. Food good but stay away from the whoppie pies they are previously frozen our just really dry. Now comes dinner. Extremely cold in this place in winter holy cow we ate with our hoodies up. They have since installed a fireplace up front but bring a coat. It was dead in there again and still took forever to get food then the pad Thai noodles are essentially raw claimed they were training a new cook offered something else but who has time to wait another hour. So June gives us 10% off the meal huh? The pad Thai was not edible and she still charged us. My curry dish was tasted but Luke warm at best, I blacklisted Junes at this time, but oh for another company breakfast! Yep same story as always only this time the menus are photo copied white paper in plastic sheet protectors. Well at least they are cheap and there should be plenty right? Nope sorry gonna have to share again, wow. I poured coffee for 20 people because the waitresses were too busy. Although for the most part there was close to enough coffee. Food once again was very good but jeez 2 and a half hours later the last person in our party was served their breakfast, it was now lunch time. I would have expected this place to have been remodeled or closed by now. Bottom line you will wait a long time and May or may not get good food but customer service is not a strong suit.
We were craving Thai and decided to give this place a try over our old standby located on the other side of the river. Upon entering, I quickly noticed the decor to be not reminiscent of a Thai restaurant but by past (failed) dining establishments. Old red booths, wood paneled walls. But as I know that decor does not a great meal make, I didn't mind. We selected a booth, there was only one other party there, and it was tight like a tiger. People must have been smaller back in the day... like the 70s/80s whence I predict the booths were constructed. I first noticed how quiet it was in the place, no music at all. My friend remarked it was like being in church, she felt like she should whisper. Our waitress quickly came over and delivered some water and menus. I ordered my standard go-to, vegetarian pad thai and the sweet potato tempura appetizer for the table. My companions ordered a couple of different curries, the basil friend rice and edamame appetizer. The sweet potato tempura came out first and while it was not a traditional light tempura batter, they were good... but a bit expensive given the portion was not very big. The edamame was good too but they were served warm and without the sea salt that I'm accustomed to. Didn't stop us from eating every last one though. My pad thai portion was huge for $8.95. I ate half and brought some home for lunch the next day. I sampled one of the curries and the basil rice and thought they too were both good, though I liked my pad thai the best. Though the food was definitely tasty, I took away a star because I felt the appetizer prices were a big hefty given portion sizes. I also took away one for the atmosphere... while I can deal with old, red, tight booths... the silence was a bit much. I don't like to hear my friends slurp their curries or chew their sprouts. Crank it up June! I'll be back or call in for takeout next time I'm in the area visiting my pal.
those that got bad food got more than I did I was refused service because I had a service dog .if your going to open a restaurant you might learn the laws
