Josh and Mundania tried Thai Thai II a couple of weeks ago, but opted not to review it. They didn’t want to give an “It’s just… ok” kind of review. So I thought to myself fine, if they won’t review it I will! I tried Thai Thai II the other night with a friend of mine, and the result was… well, just ok. So unfortunately that appears to be the Eggplant Consensus.
tofu and shrimp appetizers
Woah ok… apparently we didn’t get the most appetizing-looking appetizers.  They were pretty good though.  We ordered the Golden Tofu Triangles and the “Little Mermaids” (ha) which was shrimp fried in rice paper (I go on a shrimp kick every couple of months). The tofu was good, though a little soft and mushy on the inside. The sweet chili sauce accompanying it was delicious, though I’ve yet to try a sweet chili dipping sauce I don’t find delicious.  The shrimp thing was just meh, it would have been better if it came with the same sauce as the tofu.

Pad See Aew and Drunken Noodles

For our entrees, we were both in a noodley mood, so I ordered the Pad See Aew and my friend ordered the Drunken Noodles. Both of our dishes featured broccoli, and the Drunken Noodles came with some tomatoes and I think mushrooms.  I kind of regret not getting two completely different dishes, to give the menu more of a chance, but hey, I really really wanted wide rice noodles. The technique was flawless, everything had a wonderful pan-seared thing going on, and it was all perfectly cooked. Unfortunately the flavor really just wasn’t there. I wanted a tangy/garlicky or in some way Thai-tasting bite to my food, but none was to be had. The food wasn’t by any means bad, it was just a little bland. I would definitely try out Thai Thai again – I’ll just be hoping for more flavor next time.

I’ve heard from several people that the Spice India lunch buffet has been bordering lukewarm on more than one occasion. Now every time I’ve eaten there (which has literally been probably 40 Saturdays in a row) it’s been delicious. Perhaps not exactly piping hot, but I can (and do) eat Indian food straight up cold, right out of the fridge, so it never bothered me. But those of you who do mind room temperature Palak Paneer can now rest assured, last Saturday I noticed they replaced their dinky little heat candles with these new sort of all-encompassing electric warmers, and the food was positively piping hot.

ps a full-fledged Spice India review will be coming soon, as we think it’s a phenomenal restaurant and encourage everyone to check it out. It’s located at 2407 Mickley Ave. in Whitehall, just take the Schadt Ave exit off MacArthur Rd and follow the neon sign.
