I was very excited that there was a highly rated Thai place a few blocks from my new residence (according to Citysearch). However, after three very disappointing tries, I cannot bring myself to go there again.
The appetizers we had were greasy, bland, and served with the same plum sauce from a jar. The fundamental Phad Thai was overcooked and underseasoned (with a strange flavor, I might add). The Phad See-ew stirred some hope in me with good flavor but still overcooked noodles. The third and final visit, we got takeout during a slooooow weeknight, so no excuses.
My fiance ended up pouring the Tom Young Goong (his all-time favorite) into the toilet. The pineapple fried rice was bland and a waste of money (to think that a Thai restaurant in *Cleveland* beat them at fried rice). I couldn't remember if I ordered chicken with oyster sauce or garlic chicken since the "sauce" was merely a brown salty soup with no recognizable trace of garlic *or* oyster sauce. And the fresh veggie rolls were filled with luscious.......noodles and iceberg lettuce. Oh yeah, they stuck a sliver of cucumber in there too. No matter how hard I tried to see what all the praise was about, I couldn't see any gustatory reason for eating there.
At least the service was excellent.
