Thai Chili Restaurant Review

: Chef-owner Chai Ngamsomjan uses "real Thai chilies,” and the more that find their way into the full-throttled pumpkin curry, the better; it’s called “old-style” but it will be news to most comers. Thrill-seekers should start at chili level seven and edge upwards --- even in dishes such as the spicy grilled shrimp with coconut milk and Thai bay leaves. We like the “pop-up seafood” steamed with curry and coconut milk in a foil packet, and we are more than mad for the intensely herbal Thai lemon grass chicken. In fact, the sad lunchtime buffet is the only aspect of Thai Chili we don’t like. To soothe the ravaged palate at meal’s end, there’s an unusual but effective dessert that’s nothing more than a crêpe topped with a sugary butter sauce.

This place is AWFUL

THIS PLACE IS AWFUL.....DO NOT EVER GO

I ordered the family dinner from here yesterday (Stone Oak). They deliver through what they call a third party. The Delivery Ring. The food arrived and things seemed ok but apparently the Pad Thai had either melted through the to go container or they reheated it and the microwave did and it had leaked sauce onto and into everything and then the container was lifted up it spilled out the bottom all over the rest of the food and our kitchen/living room. I called Thai Chili and after speaking to three different people and them trying to put the blame on everyone else (and even tell me the food was still good and I should eat it) they said they would call the delivery company and sort it out and call me back....but no one ever called. I called them back (after an hour) and explained this again and they said that if I scrape up all the food the delivery guy would come by to get it AND THEN they would start a new order. They wanted me to pull it all mixed up out of the trash after being forced to clean it up. Even though I was sick, I went directly in to the restaurant bringing the container that was melted through and the one directly under that had partially melted as well to show them. I spoke to someone that said he was the chef and owner. He still refused to make the order right and again said that if I wanted to bring in the food we had scraped up they would consider remaking the entire order, but short of that they would not do anything.

I HAVE NEVER BEEN TO A PLACE THAT WAS SO UNWILLING TO RESOLVE THE DAMAGE THEY ADMITTED TO HAVING CAUSED, MY FAMILY AND I WILL NEVE GO BACK TO THIS PLACE AND WILL NEVER SUPPORT COMPANIES THAT TREAT THEIR CUSTOMERS SO SHABBILY.
