My husband and I had eaten here several years ago once and liked the food. The experience was a bit weird--only about five tables occupied. Prices great.
We decided to take our daughter there last night which was a Friday. We arrived at 7 pm and were the only ones there. This was a big concern for me. Why would a restaurant be so empty on a Friday evening? It should be a busy time.
We were pleasantly surprised that everything tasted great. I had chicken sate with peanut sauce--yum. Hubby had goat curry and it was excellent. Daughter had pad thai which she said was consistent with what she's had elsewhere. Veggies were broccoli and something which I wasn't a fan of but hubby liked. Rice had good flavor but a bit dry. The complimentary egg rolls were a nice touch.
With our meals, we got to visit the soup and dessert bar that had two soups, fruit and desserts. The chicken lemon grass soup was very good. The miso soup was so so. We did a "dessert platter" to sample a variety which were mainly pies. All of the desserts were good.
Our waitstaff was very nice and attentive enough. Beverages and food arrived promptly.
Reason for 4 stars instead of 5? We felt a bit weird we were the only ones there. My daughter mentioned the TV show that does restaurant overhauls. What the issue here? Why do people not fill this place on a Friday night? From the few reviews I read, people seem to love the lunch buffets. Is it really profitable to stay open in the evenings if there is hardly any business?
