Osha Thai at Embarcadero - Am I Missing Something?

rightstar | Feb 14, 2007 09:25 PM

For the longest time I wanted to try Osha Thai at the Embarcadero. My wife and I ate lunch there today. After being seated, we started with an order of the wasabi beef rolls and a Thai iced tea. I was very disappointed with the beef rolls. The steak was tasty but I could hardly taste the wasabi and the vinagery flavor of the sauce permeated everything. The vegetables were crispy, though, but nothing special. The Thai iced tea was way too bitter for me. I kept stirring it hoping that the bitterness would be masked by the sweet flavor but to no avail. Finally, we shared basil chicken. The chicken had a gamey taste. Like the wasabi beef rolls, the sauce was filled with vinegar. I could hardly taste the basil in the chicken. The only thing that tasted good was the red pepper. A lot of people rave about this place so I was wondering did I come on a bad day or am I missing something?
