My husband and I love Thai food and decided to try Jasmine for our weekly dinner date. I had combed through reviews here on Citysearch and thought that Brentwood *should* have a pretty discrimating crowd to judge ethnic cuisine. Guess not! The restaurant has a nifty atmosphere and the food presentation is beautiful. However, first we had to wait 15mn to order our dinner (the restaurant was half-full), then they forgot to bring me my drink, and finally our dishes were horrendous. Mine was described as spicy Asian noodles stir-fried with fresh vegetables; instead had a huge plateful of waterlogged egg noodles with minute shreds of soggy carrots and peppers, scraps of mushrooms, and some chicken, tossed in a spicy but otherwise tasteless sauce. No real flavor, just very hot. My husband had a dish billed as chicken with peas over noodles in peanut sauce... the peas were raw and the noodles were SPAGHETTI. Also, we tried the satay appetizer, which had the same peanut sauce as the one in my husband's dinner dish... the satay/peanut sauce was watery and sugary -sweet. Satay should be bold and spicy with the creaminess of peanut butter throughout.
Pros: Cool atmosphere, not too expensive
Cons: Food was absolutely atrocious, service poor
