Taste is ok but full of MSG and mock meat
Posted on 07 / 22 / 2011
We found this place without too much trouble so no problems there. Location is hardly inspiring but we got used to it after a while, thanks to some of the local cats. Service was incredibly slow... we were really hungry and the food took forever to arrive, perhaps because the place was pretty full (it was a friday night).
We ordered a smattering of curries, noodles, stir fries and soups, so it should have been enough to keep us out of trouble for quite a while.
Well.. it wasn't at all. We don't eat mock meat because it is not food. Unfortunately once we'd taken it out there was pretty much nothing left to eat, even though we thought we had ordered around it. Everything tasted pretty good, but after a while my husband started to get the tell take signs of a big dose of MSG - shaking, sweating, feeling ill. So we ate all the veges (of which there were very few) and got out (which took forever as well).
Grabbed a cab and headed for Ethos for some real food. If only the food at Ethos could taste more like the food here, or the food here could be as thoughtful and healthy as the food at Ethos we would be right. As it is, we end up doing this city hopping thing in search of the perfectly balanced feed... such is Bangkok, it seems.
So yeah.. if you're not into health and wellness try this place by all means. If you're into good food and other such outdated things, you might want to look elsewhere.
unhealthy - MSG and mock, very slow service, a side menu of exhaust fumes
