Respond to Review of My Thai Vegan Cafe
Review: I read many reviews complaining about the service at My Thai Vegan (Chinatown) and thought, "how bad could it be?" It was horrible. No one at the restaurant can communicate with you, so if you want anything, just hope you can get the message across by pointing. The entrance is like you are walking into a torture scene in some super violent movie. While no one was smoking there, you can tell someone was definitely smoking close by - maybe near a back entrance or vent. The food was tasty, and the lunch special was reasonable. (We paid $7.95 for a soup, dish, rice, and the tea). Then I got the chocolate cake - which is tasty but overly priced at $6. The worst part of the meal was actually trying to pay for it! I saw a customer before me paying by credit card and assumed I'd be allowed the same honor. However, I was told they don't take "credit cards today". Without the option of credit cards, I pulled out $30 in cash and the waitress didn't have the proper change... so she continued to stare at me as if it was MY job to come up with a solution. She went back to the kitchen - maybe to pick up a clue - and still came out with the same clueless expression. Then she starting counting up her pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters to give me 7.30 in change. I DID not want 7.30 in spare change. And on top of that, they didn't have enough change even in coins. COME ON?! What are you running? A business or some type of pitiful hell whole? Eventually between our lunch party we were able to provide exactly change for our bill. Bottom line - the food is good, get take out and avoid the challenged staff.
