Best Thai Restaurant in Sacramento! If you're looking for charm....
Whoever wrote that last review is ridiculous. Or, they dined before the new management took over.
Years ago, I went to that restaurant and the service was atrocious (not to mention, they never had any real set business hours). However, just last week I dined there and received possibly the best customer service from any restaurant yet.
The charm within this restaurant is undescribable. It's small, yet the ambience of this restaurant reminds me of the Thai countryside--its stillness, its peacefulness, untouched by the chaos of the city. The background music was pleasant, and the waiters made sure I was quite comfortable while I dined (not bad for the price I paid!). The food was, of course, delicious! The portions are large; I felt like I received a bargain. And their Thai tea--sweet, but not too sweet. However, the best part of the meal was the desert. Fried Banana with Ice Cream offers a wonderful, creamy balance of flavors. It suited my taste buds exactly, especially after such a satisfying meal.
Another amazing thing about this restaurant was the people who served you. They have got to be the funniest Thai waiters I've ever encountered! The lady did not hesitate to engage in friendly banter with their customers; they were there for me whenever I ran out of Thai tea, I did not have any issues with the service at all. I promised them I would return, and next time I will bring my husband and two children. I don't doubt that they will enjoy its rural Thai charm just as I did.
I definately recommend this restaurant for someone seeking an extraordinary, yet inexpensive Thai dining experience!
Tried out this new thai place and wasn't too impressed. We ordered some spicy chicken wings for an appetizer (plus insisted them to be "thai hot"). They were okay, but not at all spicy, like they forgot to make them hot. Disappointing...
We order a fish dish (Pla Lad Prik ). The person taking our order came out later to ask if we would want the entire fish stating it would taste better... The dish looked great. When we started to eat the fish, the white meat tasted like mold to me. I ate a few bites and decided not to risk a chance of food poisioning. Each time I tried again to eat the fish, the meat tasted awful. As my sister ate the section closer to the tail, the taste was more intense. My sister thought it tasted like mercury to her.
When bringing this to the waiter's attention, she took the dish back and came out to say that she tried the fish and there was nothing wrong with it. Asked if we wanted another fish to be made. I didn't want to risk another bad fish coming out, so we declined. And to top off this "great" dinner, the bill comes with only a 20% off including the moldy fish dinner, which should have been taken off the bill.
If you want great thai food, try out these two favorite resturants of mine: Bangkok Thai Cuisine on Greenback - makes the greatest spicy chicken appetizer I've tasted! and Ming Thai on Sunrise - great lunch specials.
