Teriyaki Queen and Thai Cuisine Buffet
This small restaurant looks deceiving because of its size, but it is very popular. The staff of Teriyaki Queen and Thai Cuisine Buffet are friendly and makes you feel right at home as soon as you walk in. Place your order at the window and in five minutes or less your meal is ready. The Thai Buffet is not too overwhelming, but it gives you enough choices to satisfy your taste buds. The Teriyaki plates are served with steamed rice and vegetables. The combination plates are served with Fried Rice and Spring roll. This one satisfies every large appetite!
The food is very good, but a bit pricey, when they charge 21.4% above the bill as a tip (20% of the food & beverages = 20% + 20% of the tax = 1.4%). They might only add the automatic tip to larger parties (we had 6 peope)...I don't know, since I couldn't find any info about it on their menu.
I used to love this place! Last time I went I was told they were out of Teriyaki Chicken... how can this be in a Teriyaki restraunt, you got me.
So fine, I liked the place and ordered some Stir Fried Tai Instead.
My food comes out and I start eating it, and the spicy Tai didn't agree with me, to omit the bad details, so I had to eat the white rice.
I have had hot Tai before elsewhere and didn't have any problem.
My waitress comes over (she must have been 16-17) and I explained that the food didn't agree with me and I was stuck eating rice. She smiled and agreed the Tai was hot. No offer to change anything, no offer for a refund, discount, nadda.
Then another waitress comes up, she's older, likely in her 20's and I've noticed she's been talking to some customers at a table in the back for about the whole time i've been there. She asks if everything is ok, I said no, the food really upset my stomach and I was sick. At least she offered another main dish.. but it was too late I just couldn't do it. Anyway It didn't matter because she quickly returned to her friends in the back to visit.
I did notice other customers had to call over the older waitress for service waving their arms in the air and yelling.
But it didn't end there. I go to pay for my meal, and there's no one at the register. For a good 5 minutes. The older waitress noticed me and was too busy visiting with her friends to respond right away.
Then I discover the young teen waitress is in front, and has been all along, she's been talking on her phone.
So I get my tab. No offer of a discount, an apology, nothing. It's a matter of pay up buddy.
I didn't leave a tip. I should have just left and not paid at all, I'm sure it would have taken them hours to discover I was gone.
On the upside, the staff was courteous, just not helpful. It's a good thing it wasn't a life threatening reaction.
It's like taking a mini-Thai Vacation! Good, Curry, The Thom Kha Soup (chicken, coconut) is great. All the food is made to order and you can get anything on the menu as hot or as mild as you want.
The staff is friendly and the prices very reasonable.
Honestly I LOVED Thai Cuisine before they expanded a year or so ago. It was small but you got excellent personal service, excellent food and great conversation (when there was time). Nowadays you get young folks at the front counter who barely look at you much less speak and looong waiting times (between 20 and 30 minutes) when you order to go. The food is still fantastic, I just miss personal touch.
