Respond to Review of Thai Cuisine II
by Holly K
Review: At first, I thought this restaurant was a keeper. I am presently on a very restricted diet, for medical reasons. In addition to leaning vegan, I cannot have any sugar or fried foods including deep fried. The Thai Cuisine II lunch specials come with egg rolls that are deep fried and finish with a very sweet tapioca. Nothing I could about the latter except to offer it to my friends (though each time they thought it very sweet also). However, for the egg rolls, I asked for a substitution of one spring roll as that is not fried at all. The server happily accommodated me. But the last time I went (and it is the last time), the server, who remembered me from before, told me his boss, the owner, said that this is the last time and would no longer be done. I explained again about my illness and restricted diet and that they would lose a customer plus all the people I brought in each time. The boss/owner never appeared himself and left the server to repeat that I would no longer be accommodated. Also, despite asking for very mild flavoring, another requirement at the present time, that last dish I ordered was quite hot. And I did not find that there was much interest in providing vegan accommodation either. If you are looking for excellent vegan Thai food plus warm hospitality, go to the other side of town to Thai Vegan on Osuna. I just wish they would open a branch in Nob Hill.
