Kriver it's too bad you had a bad experience at Spice Market. I've never eaten lunch there but have eaten dinner several times and found the experience to be quite nice. I will say it is a bit pricy for what you get but I guess that's to be expected at the W. At least everybody who worked there was nice to me, which is more than I can say about the snobby scene outside the door.
They closed months ago.
this is the best thai in town,
and ive been addictide to it for yrs:
best appetizer: yum-nua.
best main course: panang curry, but i had all, i mean, all the main courses on the thai menu and they are all very very tasty - i went through a phase of basil chicken last year.
some friends who like the less spicy side of thai cuisine - not me - like, pad thai, thai rolls, moo-shu, also attest in favor of it.
there's a commenter saying that some waiter gave him an attitude: well, i've known these people for years and they are extremely nice and polite and busy.
now, you go to eat thai food but you cant have this and that and the other in your wok because of your freaking allergies? gimme a break, stay at home then.
great place for private dinner party! Banquet host Jeffery is very nice and professional.
This is a great place for lunch. The vegetables are usually very fresh and seasoned properly. I have enjoyed all the rice plates and curries that I have tried (love the Masaman).
I am not sure why the other 2 raters rated it only 1 star if they like it so much.
My boyfriend took me for a special time out the other night to Rain, my first time there, and what an incredible dining experience it was. From the hot towels right at the start, delicious spring rolls, coconut soup to die for, a complimentary salad, and two entrees we oohed and ahhed over for over two hours, this place is really wonderful. Beautiful styling in decor and food, and a sincere, polite and attentive wait staff compliment the most tasty meal I have had in a long long time.
I have eaten @ RAIN several times now and always enjoy it. The food is good and the presentation often very well done. Prices are moderate. My only warning is to check what movies are playing at Tara Movie House because popular movies can cause limited or NO seating at Rain on weekends before popular movies.
Wait staff are polite and interior attractive decor. Clean inside as well!
Went during restaurant week and the softshell crab in panang curry was delicious. The ped pa lo noodles were mediocre, but the curry was truly amazing.
Went here for lunch with a bunch of people from work for a colleague's birthday today. Despite being the only customers at the place, our lunch arrived an hour after we ordered it (the menu calls out business lunches as available no later than 20 minutes, not sure what THAT is all about...). This was after my colleague went and chased down the wait staff and clarified that we weren't fillers at the place. The fact that everything was cold clearly indicated that the wait staff were extremely busy serving nobody. This, after I had to suffer a withering look from the same wait staff when I said I was going to share a bento box with my friend...so sue me if i don't gorge myself. AND, to cap it off, I found a hair in my "freezing" coconut soup. The only reason i didn't blow my top was the fact that i didn't want to ruin my friend's birthday. In these hard times especially, when you need to distinguish yourself with quality and service so that people would come to your restaurant, the folks at spice market need to put us (and themselves) out of our collective miseries and close down that place.
I love this thai place... great, reliable food and wonderful staff. A wonderful spot!
I can tell, this is the best in town. I like every things there, like tom ka soup even thai and chinese food are very speciality(every thing). THe workers and owner are very nice and friendly. Everyone should try at little bangkok(try and come to comment)
Our entire family loves this place...the food and the people that work there!
Excellent coconut soup- the best I ever had. Also, like the basil rolls.
My dad loves the pad thai.
Roughly equivalent to a mall's food court. Everything was over cooked, the ingredients seemed cheap, almost everything was fried (even non-fried items). The service was sullen: the rice came 20 minutes after the mains, an empty box was dropped on our table for our messy leftovers. We would given the leftovers to the three homeless guys "guarding" our car, but they'd left (no damage to the car thankfully)....so we threw them out instead.
The food was great, and the service was also very good. They also serve sushi which was an A+++ I am a fan of good sushi and this was one of the best! I had the "Volcano Roll," which was amazing with the eel and avocado, and well a mountain of tempura fried shrimp on top, truly one of a kind. I will definitely be back again!!
After hearing a commercial for Rain at the Tara Theater, my wife and I decided to give it a try and boy were we pleasantly surprised.
The attentive service, the decor and the immaculate bathrooms were only surpassed by the amazingly great food and presentation.
We would both recommend this to any lover of Thai/Fusion food and will definitely return again. Bravo!!!
love this place!!!
I like the food here. Very authentic and at affordable price.
I live very nearby and really love the food. The food is very delicious, and the service is wonderful. The chicken coconut soup is absolutely sensational. They're also one of the few dining establishments where I trust their recommendations for what to order when I want to try something new. I just tell them what I like in my food and they have great ideas for what I should order when I don't know.
I dine at Rain from time to time, and truly enjoy it.
They cater to my Thai taste as though I were in Bangkok noshing with friends.
My Thai wife likes Sushi and Apple Martinis, while I have more peasant tastes, such as Kapow Gai Kai Dow, which is to say Spicy Basil Chicken, with a fried egg on top of it.
They will cook off menu if ingredients are availible.
Happy Guest mentions Thai hot is availible, and as most Thai restaurants are afraid to serve it Thai hot it's a welcome treat for my mouth.
So if you wanna eat Thai food or Sushi give them a try, your mouth will thank you.
