This is our favorite Thai food, ad we love that it is so close to home.
Great Food, Horrible service waitress. I had just recently moved into the millcreek area and was looking for a good Thai restaurant place because its one of my favorite food. I went online and found a good review and a place that was close to my house so i figured i would give it a shot. On Saturday afternoon me and my girlfriend drove off to the Noppakao Thai Restaurant in the Osbourn Square and we were very excited to get some good food and expect good service as well. As we enter the door, we noticed the decorations and paintings were fancy and look very neat. As we stand there waiting, there were nobody to come and greet us or seem to care for us. We waited awhile until a lady waitress walk up to us and said "how can i help you?" we said we have been standing here waiting for someone to seat us for awhile and we are very hungry. So the lady takes us to a table by the fishtank which was elegant and very nice. The table was a bit messy and sticky and there were pieces of food that hasn't been wiped off from previous customers. As we sat there looking at the manu we noticed that the lady waitress hasn't come buy and fill our water as 10 minutes passed we still don't see our waitress to give us any attention or what so ever. But we notice her voice talking in Thai to somebody near the kitchen loudly and very annoyingly unprofessional. So i decided to get up and walk over by the counter and talk to her that we need some water and we have been waiting for along time now for her to come and take our order. The waitress sounded very rude and was talking in a hash tone and hurrying us to order like she had to go do something. She didn't speak to us very nicely. We were already disappointed with the service at first glance, but we hope that the food might bring up our mood. Finally, we had order the food and it came out pretty fast and it tasted delicious and the flavor was very authenthic. We were very impressed with the food, as we were enjoying the food, the waitress walked over and asked us if we wanted any dessert and we said maybe and she dropped off the check presenter on the table. We got very angry and disappointed again because the waitress interrupted us in the middle of our meal and tried to get us to leave by asking for dessert and dropping off the bill. We had finished our water and it was never refilled throughout the entire time we had to wave our hands to get the waitress attention for some water. As we finished the food we were already ready to leave since the service was very horribly bad but the food was delicious. We walked over to the front counter and waited to pay our bill. We had to wait awhile again before the waitress notice us and she walked over to cash us out. We pay with cash and expecting our changes back but the lady had just took the money put it in the drawer and said thank you and walked away. Me and my girlfriend were stunned from what we had just witness and had decided to just forget about this server and we just leave out the door very angry and disappointing. For those of you who love thai food, we highly recommend this Noppakao restaurant, but beware of the service that you might get. This lady should not be working in this field of service if she was going to have an attitude and deliver horrible service both verbally and the bodylanguage. And for cashing the bill and not return the changes and kept it for her tips was very unprofessional. We will definitely be back to this restaurant but i hope that the service would be better next time.
Good Food.. I was at Nappokao's for some Thai lunch with my family. The food was served on time and looked very nice and was very delicious. The place looked very colorful and modern. Good atmosphere. We all enjoyed our meal and had a great time.
Very Good Thai Food. I had a great experience at Noppakao. Nice restuarant and good service. Large menu and has cocktails.
Great food. I really enjoyed my lunch here. Very nice decorating. Food was prepared nicely. Service was good and didn't bother us all the time. I will go back.
IN FOR A PLEASANT SURPRISE. THE ANDAMAN THAI RESTAURANT ON 132ND STREET IN A STRIP MALL SETTING NEAR SEATTLE HILL ROAD IS A JOY TO DISCOVER. MY WIFE AND I LOVE THAI FOOD AND ENJOY VISITING A VARIETY OF ETHNIC-SPECIALTY RESTAURANTS, BUT WE WERE NOT PREPARED FOR WHAT WE EXPERIENCED. STEP INSIDE THIS SPARKLING CLEAN AND BEAUTIFULLY APPOINTED DINING ROOM AND YOU WILL THINK YOU HAVE BEEN TRANSPORTED TO THAILAND IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE. THE AMBIAENCE IN THE ROOM IS CALMING AND VERY GENTLE TO THE SENSES. THE LARGE AQUARIUM WITH THE BEAUTIFUL FISH AND THE REST OF THE DECOR IS EXQUISITELY BEAUTIFUL. EVEN A TRIP TO THE RESTROOMS WILL BE AMAZING! THE FOOD IS OUTSTANDING, AND THE SERVICE IS EXCELLENT. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A NEW DINING EXPERIENCE AND LOVE THAI CUISINE, DON'T PUT OFF A VISIT TO THE ANDAMAN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. I PREDICT YOUR INITIAL VISIT WILL BE THE FIRST OF MANY!
Great Little Thai Place.
My husband and I have eaten at Andaman several times, and I've taken a few friends there for lunch. We love it. The food has been consistently excellent and the staff is friendly and very attentive. We have an 11 month old baby, and we are ALWAYS made to feel welcome there, as are the many other families with small children.
After reading bred77's review(1 star), I feel I should add that there are many young families like ours in the neighborhoods surrounding this strip mall. Those families need to eat too. Any person who is annoyed by the sounds of children in a restaurant should avoid eating in those that welcome families....Good luck with that.
Best kept secret. Tucked into an unsuspecting strip mall. this was the best Thai food ever! I was plesantly surprised at the presentation, decor, service and flavor. It is good to see food like this in our area. I can't wait to go back and will tell all of my friends.
Disappointed. We were drawn to this restaurant as it was very well decorated. However, we were very disappointed with the food and service professionalism. We ordered the duck curry and trout dish from the award winning signature menu. The presentation of the food was great but after a few bites, we can feel the MSG kicking in. The duck and fish are tough and seemed overcooked. Another disappointment is their service. We were there during lunch and the restaurant had very few customers. Of all the empty booths and tables around the corners, they sat a family next to ours. The whole time we were dining, the family's little children were screaming, kicking and crying. It was hard to carry on our conversations. Sad to say... we won't go back to this restaurant again.
Andaman Thai Restaurant. Great food and great service. Nice interior design. The halibut dish was excellent. Also, the kobocha with cream custard. Our kids love it.
