We went to this restaurant on New Year’s Eve. Everything was closed, so we stumbled upon this place after driving around on Broadway.
It’s located on the corner of Broadway and Oak St. Right next to it is the Minato Sushi I blogged about earlier.
It was empty except for a group of young high-school-looking girls ordering some take out, and a homeless looking man sleeping in the corner. I can’t say I felt comfortable eating there. It looked old, run down and not hygienically clean. I think the homeless-looking man made it worse. The price was ok. I didn’t think it was that cheap, considering I could get much better deals elsewhere. The pad thai was alright. Nothing to rave about. Maybe it would have tasted better if I had taken out and presented it on a nice place in a more comfortable atmosphere.
The curry (extra for the rice) was customized for us to have it an authentic Thai spiciness. Bad idea. We were both breathing fire after a few sips. I couldn’t eat much of it…too hot. If you order it as it is, it should be fine though. Don’t go up for the challenge of asking it as ‘real’ Thai curry unless you’re super strong with hot spicy food.
A while back, I blogged about the Inspection Site. I checked them out (you can also check out their report here). They seem to have a number of problems…and compared to other restaurants, its a bit high.
I can’t really say for sure if it was the spicy curry that gave me stomach problems 2 hours later, or the pad thai that was bad… either way, I don’t think I’ll be going back anytime soon.
