Going out for dinner with your Grandmother is never an easy experience because things were never as good as they used to be, service isn't a quick as it used to be and prices are way too high now-a-day. So, when my Grandmother invited me out for dinner and we went hunting for a place it was almost like pulling teeth to choose a place. Finally, more out of desperation rather than actual preference for Thai food. My last Thai food was in California in a place that looked like we were in for some authentic Thai food. In the end, I hated it. So, to go to Thai food again, in a place like this? I mean, this place doesn't even try to look authentic. It's just white walls, a mix-match of random photography/paintings and cheep furnature.
We were seated immediately. Not sure if that was normal or if we just got lucky. I think it was the latter as the place filled up fast. We got our menu, looked it over and shortly we had food.
And what food! I was sick, with a cold, and my nose was so stuffed that I couldn't smell the stuff holding it up to my nose, but I could taste it loud and clear. It was amazing. I had a soup (no. 21) and my Grandmother couldn't decide because everything was so odd. However, our server was kind enough to point out that what my Grandmother had decided on wasn't that good and recommended a rice dish (no. 32) that she thought was impressive. I guess that the portions were meant to share because we found that neither of us could finish what we had ordered on our own. Usually when you have stuff left over you don't really want to bring it home, but we did.
The prices were good, considering that everything was within the same price range. It wasn't really possible to get something that was cheep, nor was it possible to get something expensive.
All in all, the food was outstanding; definatly surpassed my expectations. The service was quick, friendly and helpful. The value was perfect for the amount of food that we good. The ambiance was not that great, but, that was what made the food so impressive.
