Pasadena >City Thai
good service, nice good food, good location, love place, expensive food, clean ambience, good pad thai
Eh... Not the best. first timers, probably won't be back. our Thai fried rice tasted rather salty and cheap, my pad Thai was horrible, i've never had it taste this bad. our eggrolls were the biggest joke. all around I'm extremely unimpressed with this place. the service isn't eventhat good either. whatever
solid thai experience. nothing bad to say... i've had thai food in thailand and this place is just as good, if not better. clean & upscale ambience coupled w/ solid thai cuisine makes this place a true gem. it's worth the drive to pasadena to eat here. it's rite next to parking structure so it's even more convenient. sometimes i see william shatner eating rite next to our table! every single item on the menu has thusfar pleased us. we highly recommend it!
Good food, good service, nice ambience!. I recently went to City Thai with a friend, and we had mango salad and salmon curry which were both really good. Being Thai myself, I consider the food to taste pretty close to what I've had growing up. The prices seem fair considering the location and ambience. If I'm craving Thai food, I'd go there.
Thumbs Down!. The food was not good and it was expensive, $4 more for extra shrimps on top of my $15 curry fried rice? Do the math. The location and service was good, but I'm there for the food also but that didn't satify me with the money spent. Should stick with Saladang as usual down the block.
good location, nice ambiance....
...and the food is just fine. I used to eat A LOT of Thai up in the Bay Area when I worked in Silicon Valley (every other day it seemed), so, yes, I know good Thai food.
Took my mom and stepfather here over the holidays and found the food tasted good, hearty without feeling bloated afterwards (we had sweet/sour pork, chicken/veggies with oyster sauce, shrip pad thai and chicken satay for an appetizer. Service was friendly and quick. Free refills on the soda. They were playing weird industrial techno for a little while on the sound system -- a bit jarring but they changed it eventually.
Bottom line? I'd go back. As the previous reviwer stated, there was no wait here during dinner time (around 6 p.m.). Great location right in Old Town.
Ok lah.. The food is decent. What I really come here for is to get dinner quick (usually no wait) and cheap. The Tom Yum Gai is good. Mint Leave Chicken is also enjoyable. Service is kind if a little green.
