Why is it so difficult to find good Thai food in Irvine? I was too lazy to drive far so ended up grabbing a bowl of boat noodles form Thai Cafe and boy do I wish I had just taken the hit and driven to Santa Ana instead. The noodles were overcooked, the broth way too sweet, and just very mediocre at best. I do have to admit though, they are very attentive and check up on you often, but that doesn’t make up for sub par food in my book. I’ve given this place several tries — curries are okay, they don’t use the best cuts of beef so that suffers too in my opinion when ordering beef salad. Either way, I wouldn’t recommend this place if you’re a true Thai food aficionado. You’ll be disappointed.
