Thai Spice and Sushi Restaurant – The Forum

on August 11, 2013

A few Saturdays ago, my boyfriend, son, and I decided to grab something to eat after a nice afternoon of shopping at the Forum Plaza. My boyfriend was excited to see the sign for sushi, so we had to stop. The restaurant was clean and we were seated promptly. So far, so good.

Our waitress asked us what we would like to drink and brought the drinks back to the table lickety-split. The waitress did not give us a chance to adequately peruse the menu, as she was constantly–within 1-3 minutes between stops–asking if we were ready to order. I completely understand the attentiveness, but we had never been there before and it was a fairly large menu to look through.

We ordered spring rolls and they were quite good. The best I have had in some time, and the peanut dipping sauce that came with them was fantastic. Most places it just tastes as if they’d mixed some peanut butter in water. This sauce had great seasoning and flavor and my boyfriend dipped everything in it, even my sons chicken nuggets.

My boyfriend ordered a Philadelphia Roll (he’s the sushi fan, and the reason we stopped here for lunch. A moth and light with this fella and sushi signs) and I ordered a Japanese curry and chicken nuggets and french fries for my one-year=old son. As a side-note to anyone with younger kids, the chicken nuggets and fries are the only Americanized, kid-friendly dish they have. My boyfriend really enjoyed his Philadelphia Roll and my Japanese curry was quite nice. The Japanese curry was a huge serving, so I had to share it with my boyfriend. It was very flavorful, I wouldn’t say it was the best I ever had but it was quite decent.

Now for the bad. The reason I am giving them three stars is because of the service. After the waitress checked on us after delivering our meal she never checked on us again. My boyfriend had to flag her down to get refill on his drink. After eating and being essentially ignored, we requested a box and the check. We waited 10 minutes and my boyfriend left to go to the bathroom (5 minutes) and I had to have another waitress bring us a box and ask if she’d please tell our waitress that we were still waiting for our check. The waitress then greeted three more tables before finally printing our check and dropping it off. My boyfriend handed his credit card to her and we waited to get the receipt and that card back. She went to the table next to us and they had requested there check and she handed them our credit card and bill. She then asked us if we would like our bill. I was so confused so we both said yes we would like our bill, thinking she had meant card/receipt/end of transaction/etc.. She walked off to the counter as if she was getting our bill situated. I turned around to look at the table behind us and realized she did the unthinkable she handed my boyfriends card to the table behind us. I walked over to the table advised the couple the waitress made a mistake and gave them our credit card instead of their bill. Then as my boyfriend was signing the bill, I overheard the waitress saying that we should have said something about wanting his card and receipt rather than our bill. No one came to apologize for the misunderstanding. It was just horrible service and totally careless. The table next to us apologized and wanted to get there bill but she didn’t end up checking back with them until after we were walking out the door.

I will not be coming to this place again, regardless of the decent dining areas and tasty food, but because of the careless waitstaff who could not remember to hand the right credit card to right table.
