Bothell >Pen Thai Restaurant
I had experienced a worse experience of my life. I heard about this but experienced today.
Hostess/Waitress did not allow us to dine at restaurant at 8:45 pm by stating that restaurant is closing though she allowed two white couples to dine at restaurant who came 5 minutes later than us. It was sad that still racism is there in modern society. Me and My mother felt bad with this racist behavior
Good food, poor service and prices. So the food is really good but have not been impressed by the service or dinner prices, lunch us the normal 8-10 but figure 15+ for dinner. Went in for lunch and felt like we were getting shoed out so they could take a break.
Great Thai food!. I love their havenly beef, and garlic chicken. The service are friendly as always. Try them out, you won't dissappoint it!
Great tasting food!.
I had received several recommendations for Pen Thai and I have to say I was a little wary. I was a little taken aback when we received our menus and I saw that the dishes were $12-16 each. I am used to Thai food being in the range of $8-10 per plate.
However, I will say that the food was VERY tasty. And there was no additional charge for rice, which helped with the pricing.
I would recommend Pen Thai, as long as you don't mind spending a little extra.
They charge for refills, but don't tell you. The food was OK. I would agree for Bothell, it would be one of the better places to go for Thai food. The location is good, with plenty of parking at the back. The service was so, so on the day I visited. The restaurant is nicely decorated inside and is clean. I would consider the price of food fair, BUT they charge for refills. This would be fine if the servers told you this when you ordered, but on the occasion I visited; I was not informed of their policy. I might sound like at tightwad, but this is the first time I have ever been charged for a refill and in all honesty I am still in shock! I eat out two to three time a week, I have eaten in some high end restaurants and not so high end. I have NEVER been charged for a refill. In my opinion, Pen Thai is not so special a place that I am willing to pay for refills. I can go a few miles up the road to Thai Bistro - Mill Creek, where the food is on par with that served at Pen's, the service is friendly and I can drink all the diet coke I desire.
Overpriced / Poor Quality. Our shop used to spend $90.00 every Thursday until the quality of the food went down hill and I found a hair in the Crispy Chicken. Tonight we decided to try again after a year and the food was worse and the prices were raised on some dishes 30%. Penn used to be great, what a shame.
Quality has drastically deminished. Had the non-spicy soup which tasted not unlike very hot wiring smells. What I found swimming in the third spoonful that put me off completely.
Good n fast. this is the only place I eat in Bothell..good thai food without having to go to Seattle. Usually fast service too.
Excellent service. You will get excellent service here! Meaning your water glass will never be more than half empty, the food will come lickety split, and your server will give you great recommendations on new dishes to try. It's so good! Even when the restaurant is busy you get great service.
I went there for dinner last night with 9 gals from work. I called about an hour before we were to arrive just to be sure they had a table large enough to accomodate us. We arrived at 5:15 pm and there was our table, waiting for us. We were seated promptly, they didn't mind that we were waiting for 1 more member of our party. Of course we ordered appetizers and drinks as we were waiting. The food was fresh, hot, tasty, and delivered very quickly. For appetizers we ordered the Crab Rangoon, a really neat corn fritter special, and the spring rolls. For dinner, WOW, talk about a great selection, the Emerald Curry was as good as a previous recommendation said it would be. If you LOVE garlic you must order the garlic prawns-you won't be dissapointed. Sizzling duck, Phad Thai (for the thai food virgin in the group), sizzling veggies, heavenly beef, etc. Needless to say, there was no room left in any of us for dessert.
The restaurant filled up very quickly, but at not time did we ever feel rushed by the staff. I highly recommend Pen Thai and I will be returning. Soon!
