Media is such a pleasant change from my earlier location. It was a frustrating time for me and I was at my wit's end by then looking for a clean space in a nice neighborhood. Thankfully, Senator T gave me a helping hand.
Since I'm a vegetarian, my choice of cuisine is very limited when I travel abroad. I decided to invite him to dinner at Ariano to celebrate and thank him for such timely assistance. Ariano hosts live music and Mexican nights on Mondays. I had been to Ariano the day before for lunch and we enjoyed the impeccable service and flavourful food.
Since I dint have a choice of vegetarian, we walked over to La Na's a Thai French restaurant. I have visited Bangkok a few times and love the food there.
Right from the moment we walked in, it started with poor service. We had to wait a while for some one to take our order. The entire floor had just two waitresses on a busy evening who did not know how to balance the work and certainly sported a not-so-great attitude.
The food had a street food flavor which was tasty, but it certainly was not restaurant standards. T loved the Tom Yum soup served with shrimp, but they did not have a vegetarian soup on the menu. I ordered corn patties served with a tangy-sweet tamarind sauce. That was a little oily, but the sauce was done to perfection. However, I noticed that my plate had scanty salad while my neighbor had ample serving.
The restuarant name is also quite a puzzle. Im still not so sure what is so French in the menu they served, when it was a Thai street food fare.
This is one of the worst restaurants I have been to and will never go back again. No second chances on this one!
