Re: “Review: Panita Thai Kitchen

My wife an I went here for lunch. We waited maybe 40 minutes despite being one of two groups in the restaurant at the time.

Our food came. My Pad See Ew was honestly pretty good. My wife's dish was an inedible mess of salt and overcooked hot peppers. She asked to send her dish back and get something else instead. The owned agreed and took her order for the new dish. A few minutes later he came back out an informed us that he was going to charge for all three dishes. The most amazing exchange ensued when we tried to explain that that was not what we wanted:

1) He rather loudly called my wife a racist, informing her "we are equal, our skin is the same." Aside from being bizzarre and irrelevant to trying to send back a dish of bad food, it was actually literally true - my wife grew up in southern china and was the only other asian person in the restaurant.

2) He yelled at us every time we tried to talk or reason with him. Just outright tantrum-style yelled over us when we tried to talk.

3) He refused to adjust the bill.

4) He disinvited us from ever returning.

So... yeah. I mean I guess maybe some of their other food is good? I suppose I'll never know. There's enough other Thai restaurants in Atlanta that I don't think We'll be missing much, other than verbal abuse with our meals.
