Thai Nakorn Sucked !

Curt | May 9, 200408:51 PM

Actually, most of the food was great.
But, don't go on "date night".

Went to have dinner with my "cousins"; got there about 7:30.
Although the place was packed, we were seated promptly.

Two tables that were seated after us, were attended to before us (see woo!, I don't own the place).
This was actually good for them because my cousin-in-law quizzed them on just about every item on the menu.

Maybe 10 minutes after our order was taken, the dishes started coming, one at a time.
There was probably 10 minutes between dishes.
Thai food can be enjoyed a dish at a time, but we always felt we were waiting.
Also, we were never statused; we always had to stop someone for water or whatever.

The only exception to the food was the soup.
Unfortuntely, cousin gave detailed instructions on how it should be prepared!

It might have been due to Mother's Day weekend.
But, if it's always like this at the dinner rush, the Garden Grove store needs to get its act together.

Although I would still recommend it for the food, I would pass on weekend nights and stick with lunch or early dinner.
