Worst Experience Ever- Food was Hot enough to Kill..
While visiting Orlando, we went to Thai Thani at Celebrations based on all the fabulous reviews all over the internet. My family is vegetarian and eats at Thai restaurants around the country at least once a week. We are big foodies and consider thai food our favorite.
Upon telling our waitress, we were vegetarian she promptly informed us that we would only be able to choose from four dishes and she we should reconsider.
We asked her to consult with the chef to see if he could make the panang curry without fish curry. She reluctantly agreed to do so, but did not guarantee the taste. We were willing to take the risk.
We also said we would like the food to spicy.
We love our food to be spicy and always specify this at Thai restaurants. Something the chef understands.
However, when our food arrived and as we began to eat it we realized it was way too spicy. Infact HALF the bowl of SOUP was full of cut of green chillies.
Secondly, the rest of the food was impossible to eat. We could hardly even get it down our throats.
We called the waitress,Mai, to explain our predicament.
She promptly giggled and said it was spicy like we asked. We showed her the chillis and asked to speak with the chef or manager.
She refused to allow us to meet either and then proceeded to apologize and offered a 'discount'.
We were tired and did not want to eat anything more from the restaurant and agreed to the discount. We sent the main courses back hardly touched.
She returned and offered a 10 percent discount off of a 70 dollars.
We were appalled at the lack of customer service.
I merely write this review to warn those who order spicy food at Thai Thani. The chef isn't aware of limit to what spicy is and the service from the waitress, Mai, was not passable at all.
We will NOT be visiting any THAI THANI's in Orlando.
Thai Thani - Big Menu Delivered With Class.
I was very pleased when Thai Thani moved into a corner building that housed a grocery, a deli, and other unsuccessful spots. It was also a little scary how slowly customers discovered the place, but Celebration diners have a lot of old favorite eateries in downtown Celebnration.
Recently diners have discovered what Thai Thani fans had always known - their restauranmts deliver excellent Thai food. The only thing larger than the menu are the portions.
While the appetizers like pot stickers and spring rolls and the salads like som tum (papaya) are good, I usually pass to get to the main course. You can order the noodles, but you should try their pan seared sea bass or param steamed chicken. I love duck and they do it four ways at Thai Thani.
The food is served mild unless you order it hotter - up to firehouse hot. You will probably be too full for dessert, but they have green tea ice cream and a funky fried ice cream plate.
I noted this Thai Thani is not as elaborately beautiful as some of the others (like Tampa's Channelside), but there is still a lot of arty taste. I suggest you visit the bathrooms.
Thai Thani is a welcomed addition to the downtown restaurant lineup..
