Haz (Plantation Place)

Found HAZ online when I was looking for something new in the City that I haven't tried before. My friends and I were keen to try turkish cuisine. We were quite glad to see quite a few vegeterian choices listed on their website menu. Phoned yesterday afternoon for an evening table and the booking process went trouble free.

When we arrived the man at the reception promptly showed us to our table. We tried the turkish beer and quite liked it. Complimentary bread , humous and olives arrived swiftly. The ambience of the restaurant was simple & modern. The waitress was very polite and attentive when she took our order. Tried their Sabzeli Kofte (Falafel), Hellim (Grilled Cheese) and Sebzeli Borek (pastry) for starters between the three of us. All the starters tasted good and were enjoyable.

For the main courses we had the Turlu (mixed vegetables, pepers), Musakka and the Haz Set menu. Both Turlu and Musakka looked & tasted too simple. There was no wow factor. They weren't bad , but weren't great either. They both came with a tiny portion of basmati rice too . That helped make the main courses a little more sumptuous.

Overall - decor and starters were good. Main courses were a let down. Not sure if I would be rushing back there again soon. Might do after a while and try something different from their menu.

Nakhon Thai (City)

I couldn't agree more with the previous reviewer Mark. I can't believe such a place can even exist in the heart of the City, where you would expect the average customer to be more difficult to please than any where else. I had the misfortune of visiting this place last friday night. I checked out their website and liked what I saw before dropping in. On arriving there I wondered if they had put a different restaurant's pictures on their website as the bar looked nothing like it did on their website. We were lead to the restaurant area through a little door at the back past the toilets and down a narrow spiral stairs. Although the decor in the restaurant area wasn't bad, the waitress certainly was. She was inattentive if not plain rude, carrying on her conversation with her colleague as she was taking our order, which meant we had to repeat it twice. Both my starter and main dish tasted ok, neither great or particularly bad. It is the service and ambience that was a let down. Usually I experience such cold service and bad toilets at indian curry houses. This Thai one was no different.
