Birthday Dinner at Thanya Thai Cuisine

Last month, Will and I went to our friend's birthday dinner at Thanya Thai Cuisine with our other friends as well. The dinner was on a Saturday evening at 8PM and strangely, it was very empty and maybe there was only one table that was filled. The service was okay and accommodating. A friend and her husband brought their baby to the birthday dinner and the servers/owner didn't mind it at all. As a matter of fact, they brought a bowl of hot water so that our friend can warm up the milk for the baby to drink. Good eye and service on this part. However, the food didn't really wow me.

It seems that this restaurant doesn't have a beverage menu which is strange and feels awkward, but basically they have your typical drinks you would find in a Thai restaurant minus the alcohol. Most of us got the Thai Ice Tea or Lychee Tea. We did family style so we shared the appetizers and entrees.

We ordered five different appetizers to share. The Papaya salad (green papaya, carrots, tomatoes, peanuts, string beans, fresh lime juice, chili, and garlic) sounded really refreshing, but it tasted very bland. The Thai Summer Rolls were simple, beautiful, and perfect. The Crispy Calamari was fried to perfection. A friend ordered the Mussel Hotpot, but I wasn't a fan of it because the broth was very bland and didn't taste very good. Another friend ordered the Tom Kha Soup , but I didn't try it as it is a spicy soup.

These are the two entrees our friends had, but I didn't try them.

Drunken Noodles with Beef
Will ordered the Drunken Noodles with Beef and originally it's suppose to be spicy, but he asked the waitress to not make it spicy. Unfortunately, when the dish arrived it was spicy which ruined his appetite. They remade his dish, but by the time it arrived he wasn't very hungry.

Squid Pad Thai
I ordered the Squid Pad Thai, but I wasn't a fan of this because it tasted and felt watery and although it was too tangy. This was definitely not the best Pad Thai I've had.

Overall, I felt the service was mediocre. Although the restaurant wasn't busy, it didn't feel like the servers were very alert or attentive. The food wasn't very tasty and the quality could be improved. I don't think I would be back here again, nothing really impressed me during our visit.
