I really wonder why are there so many people raving about this restaurant as if they know what they are talking about?
We went there for dinner after reading the reviews and ordered a satay, pad thai, and cashew chicken. Someone forgot to put the dressing on the salad that came with the satay, and we had to contend with tasteless cucumbers with our satay chicken. The satay sauce was a slightly thinned palm sugar syrup, which was kind of difficult to swallow.
Then came the cashew chicken. It appeared that they could only scrape bits and pieces of chicken from a stock pot and threw it into a vegetable stir fry. The pieces of vegs and onions were cut so big and sloppy, finding and meat became a treasure hunt. The whole dish looked and tasted like watered-down soy sauce.
The pad thai was not pad thai. It was soggy, and the sauce was made from the same palm sugar syrup as the satay, and a little tomato sauce to make it look authentic. We only found three (3) tiny shrimps, when they proudly advertised prawns in their rendition.
On the service, the waitress kept taking our food away when we were obviously still working on them. Maybe she was ashamed of what was being served, in which case she might have done the right thing.
The chap taking our order was, however, very friendly.
It was not even a case of us setting too high an expectation. With our dining experience, we could only conclude that the cook just didn't have any clue what to do. How this place received so many glowing reviews was beyond my understanding.
