Kwan Thai

I ate here Saturday 28th July about 7.30 pm, without a reservation. The waitress certainly we not friendly and welcoming - it was all very matter of fact, and found us a table quick enough but no smile and no 'thai hospitality' that you often find in other restaurants. We had a tiny table for two, and had the mixed starter for two special platter. It was nice enough but not exceptional. Disappointing was the meagre size of the satay pieces, just one each and half the size of that you might normally expect. The main course (we ordered just standard basic rice or noodle dishes) was disappointing. It was served in cheap metal dishes and stone-cold very small white plates (almost like side plates). Within a few moments the food was already cooling fast, so you had to eat quickly. Colour wise, I always think I can spot good Thai food by the vibrancy and colourness & shine of the food appearance. This food had a dullness to the mirrored the taste - quite bland in the case of my dish with indistinct flavours and slightly tough chicken. My table-mate, the chille was just savagely hot, not great taste and same tough chicken. Basically its just fast food fooder served without care and collect the money. RUBBISH. Inside, you don't benefit from anyview, so its not worth the bother. I left and made the point of a ZERO tip.
