Respond to Review of CLOSED: Araya's Place
Review: I've only been here once. It was worth the visit. It's not easy to find truly vegetarian Thai food: e.g., soup without fish sauce. For many vegetarians, that alone makes this an attractive place. I ordered the tofu satay for an appetizer and the curry with asparagus, with brown rice, for the main. This was way more food than I could consume, so I set aside most of the satay to take home. Both dishes were pretty good; the curry sauce was indeed fairly watery, but the vegetables seemed fresh. Service was a bit odd. The staff were very friendly. However, it took a while to place an order. Once I had, though, the food came out in rapid order (I had had only a third of the appetizer when the main came out), and they seemed really eager to clear my plates. But then it again took a while to pay. I wish they had smaller appetizers (that probably cost a bit less, too). The service could become a bit more savvy. And if you aren't vegetarian, there's probably not much of a reason to go here. But if you are, it's well worth it.
