    I've been a customer for some time now. Seems like they are under new management. Lights are brighter, food is different and they wearing uniforms now. But that's to say the basic. We waited an entire hour for our food and when I asked for the food the waitress asked if I wanted salmon instead because the flounder was frozen, after waiting an entire hour!! to top it off when the food did arive they forgot our rice. Than they had us wait for a fork. The lady gave us $5 off our meal and two free drinks. The service is terrible and the food is not as good as it was a few years back. I would never recommend this place again. Disappointed!!!

    Great environment

    Great environment, very warm and inviting. The food is great, if you never experienced Thai cuisine this is the place to try it.

    Poor Food, Poor Service!

    After hearing rave reviews about this place from my sister, a friend and I decided to give Cafetasia a try. A mistake. We areive there, and are ignored by the staff for about 15 minutes. Since my friend and I are both visually impaired, we required assistance finding a table. Already 1star off for that. Then we were finally seated, and the waitress rudely asked us what we want. My friend had the rice lunch special, and I told the waitress, I wanted the Pad Thai, but with no eggs. Another 20 minutes, and the food arives, and my meal has eggs! I wave a waiter over, and explain to him that I spesifically requested no eggs, he takes the food away. Wait for ten minutes, and the lukewarm food is finally plunked down in front of me. And, the kicker to all of this, was that we were overcharged by about 10 dollars. Never ever coming to this place again. Didn't bother leaving a tip either.

    Modern Thai

    The interior has great music and ambiance. The service is fast and the waitress/waiters are nice. I think the food is good, but most Thai places in Manhattan taste alike. They have good pork chops. I would def suggest this place for a date or a group of friends/co workers.

    Avoid if you take Thai seriously

    This place is usually near capacity, which proves the adage " never underestimate the public's taste for the mediocre". I would highly recommend you avoid this at night, as it is all hard surfaces and the result is cacaphony. The lunch deal is what brings them in. The food is quite homogenous, most of it sweet. This place really makes one want to take a trip to Flushing and have the real thing, since it is so dumbed down American Thai.
