Not as good as it looks
Submitted Friday, September 19, 2008 - 1:43am [Dine in]

We ordered a rockin' soup with mushrooms and large prawns, which was excellent. We immediately set up defenses in case any over-zealous waitress might attempt to take our not-yet-licked bowl, haha.

Then came our two curries - massaman and a red curry with duck. Both were extremely bland and the massaman curry sauce itself reminded us of Wendy's chilli. The duck meat was great, but the chicken wasn't quite there yet.

The presentation was excellent, though the portions were very small. The restaurant itself was also very nice. Drinks were on the expensive side.

Notable negatives:
- The potatoes were bad and tasted like cheese, and gave us mild food poisoning afterward.
- They actually charge you extra for rice, hahaha.

We were recommended this place by a dude in the pizza place beside where O Thai is/was (they have been mysteriously closed for weeks for a series of dodgy reasons).

We walked a couple of blocks to this place and ordered our regular masaman curry (spelling varies) and were blown away. We also got "corn soup" which is more like "incredibly delicious coconut milk shrimp soup, and by the way there is some corn".

The service was prompt and fine, though the atmosphere was just of a generic low end cafe. The prices on the dishes were also well below average for Thai restaurants.
