Thai One On, (Avenue Rd north of Wilson) Aw c'mon, I should have known though!

Idas | May 22, 2012 06:04 PM

We ate dinner tonight at Thai One On.
I should have known it was going to be a not great dinner by the fact that it always has a Groupon Now deal.
We were desperate from something different and took a gamble.

I have to ask, is there actually an Asian chef in the back?

The wait staff oddly also stayed huddled by the cash with their back to the tables most the time, it was hard to get their attention for the bill.

We ate vegetable fried rice (incredibly wet)
Crispy fish in a curry (many non edible seasonings spread throughout that could choke a horse but not clearly distinguishable from the other curry sauced vegetables) that had an incredible amount of bones and very dry.
Mixed appetizer platter, very greasy, not very tasty. The shrimp chips with I loved at Thai Magic ages ago were very stale. Fried tofu too heavy and firm. Calamari over cooked.

The wait staff were very nice but the food gives such a bad impression of Thai food.

Regrettable even with the groupon discount. And the gut rot is setting in.
Just thought I would detour other deal interested folks to take a pass.
Still in search of something (non-sushi) Asian north of downtown, West of Yonge.. Idas
