Thought Thai food would be a safer bet in a smaller town, as you can’t go too wrong..right? …upon closer inspection of the place, it said ‘thai/indian food’..hmmmm….anyways..
Food was alright and decent, except for the pad thai…this was not good. I ordered a garlic, coriander & pepper beef. It has the taste, but no coriander in sight.
The din wasn’t the highlight. The highlight was the service.
1) We walked in and an indian female greeted us…table for 5? this way, please. she took us to the nearest table, a long table that can seat 10. We spied a smaller table further away, and was about to ask when she said “…it’s very busy..there is no one to clean the table…do you mind seating here?…”
T: Oh, ok. That’s fine, we can sit here (on this huge table)
fyi, busy is maybe 20ppl, with maybe 5 tables, and also takeaway. 3 ppl in kitchen, with maybe 2 cooking only.
H: A Pad thai, a beef garlic coriander pepper, a chicken chilli jam, a seafood something something..and…2 white rice…and one naan…
W: One Naan for the five of you?!?!?!?!
All (pointing): naan is for her…and we’re sharing the dishes
W: ..ok…no problem
T: ..and could we have some tap water, please…
3) 30+min has passed…no water yet..
someones goes to the waitress
N: … can we get some water, please…(we could help ourselves, but dunno where)
W: …i’m very busy as you can see…i’ll bring it when i can
water comes in 10min time
the two bowls of rice we ordered was small..the naan hasn’t arrived..but the other dishes have arrived..
another table receives a naan…we asks the guy bringing food out of the kitchen
N: excuse me, we’ve ordered a naan and it hasn’t arrived yet..and can we order another rice
…1 min passes..
M: …umm..this is your order, and there was no naan written…
All: (aiya..and for the comment that the waitress gave..she forgot to write it down)
N: nevermind. can we can an extra bowl of rice
rice comes..it’s pretty much 1.5 to 2 times the size of the first bowl that came…and it’s the same price.
I think they need to take some hospitality course. At least, how about saying ‘sorry, i’m busy and will get it to you asap…’
am i mean?
