The "New" Talesai - You've been warned

Jeryy | Aug 5, 2008 02:16 PM

Had to meet friends in West Hollywood last night and thought of Talesai on Sunset at Doheny. We had been there many times before , but not for a couple of years. The outside looked the same, as did the inside - but that's where the resemblance stopped. What used to be a moderately priced Thai restaurant is now an INSANELY overpriced ($8 per cup Tom Ga Kai soup, $17 Pad Thai) disaster. The service was awful, the new menu offered a minimal selection of dishes , maybe one quarter of what you might expect in any Thai restaurant. Finally the food was just miserable and the portions nouvelle-sized. Everybody at our table grumbled - especially about the flavorless $24 Hidden Treasure appetizer. Ugh! Stay away!!!
