IGNORANCE, 2 LBS OF DOG FOOD & A NAUSEATING BATHROOM STENCH . It's true, you cannot expect much in the Bangor area. This place proves it.
I ordered Red Curry Chicken. Traditionally Red Curry chicken is made with onions, potatoes, podded peas, and with actual curry sauce.
The rice? Uncle Ben's.
The sauce? Peanut flavored soup with Red Pepper shavings everywhere.
The veggies? squash, carrots, and... pineapple (????????)
The server? Decent. But I came in with a 19month old and she did not offer to assist with packing our remaining food, of which there was an abundance... but she was a bit older, so she gets a pass.
The quantity? A lot. But I don't want 2 lbs dog food. I want 1 lb of delicious food.
However, all this so far is forgivable, until...
The front end manager? When myself and my wife (who is black-Jamaican) and 19month old approached the front and asked about whether other rices were offered such as sticky rice or traditional Chinese rice, she actually called me stupid and told me to get out or to speak with 'her' manager.... (?). Did I leave a good tip? yes. Did I ask to go above her head? no. Did I seem agitated - why would i be? no. She was simply too ignorant to withstand a simple conversation and provide future suggestions. No worries, it's only her job...
I then spoke to her manager. Chinese. Did not speak a lick of english. And it became clear to me how the ignorant front end manager was hired and has retained her position. I left, silent.
......all this after leaving our waitress 25% (for the inconvenience of cleaning after our baby girl, not for any outstanding service).
Traditional Bangor: bad food in mass quantity.
Not Traditional: bad, questionably racist people. at their worst.
Taste - 2 (i like peanut chicken, just not when I order red curry)
Variety - 1 (they're using Chinese veg in Thai food - same ingredients, different method)
Service - 1 (emphasis)
Price - 3
Ambiance - 1 (previous reviewer: 4? seriously.. 4.. and you misspelled ambiance..)
Cleanliness - 1 (do not use the men's toilet, the stench is unbearable)
Next time I'll do what I'm supposed to: take the slop i'm served with a smile, don't use the bathroom, be gracious for LEFTOVAS and scoot my ass on home because after all - I'M ONLY THE DAMN CUSTOMER...
don't go there.
