Thai Kitchen - Guadalupe

lookout78 | May 22, 2009 05:05 PM

My GF and I ate there last night. She was craving some kind of Thai noodles, etc. She is relatively new to the area. We live central and didn't feel like driving too far, or going downtown. We have been to several Thai restaurants in the University area, and she had not been to Thai Kitchen.

We ordered the basic Pad Thai, and a beefy stew of potatoes and meat. For apps we had tofu spring rolls.

We have both worked in the service industry, and are familiar with the way restaurants work. We are easy going and don't expect too much from any place. We have both been servers at various establishments here in Austin, and outside of Texas. We understand being a server anywhere is a thankless occupation... but when a restaurant is not busy, please follow up - even if you are an Asian "family run" establishment.

Ultimately, the food was awful. Disgustingly sweet. Stupid sweet. I never send anything back, but I came close last night. I understand the restaurant is lowest-common denominator when it comes to "Thai" food, but this was unreasonable. This was the equivalent of lemon chicken or sweet and sour pork at an Americanized Chinese place in the suburbs...
