Not that great – I don't know how any restranuant can mess up beef teriyaki but Chow did. I went for lunch a few weeks a go and thought the chow mein was good. So took my family during the holidays. Big mistake. My beef teriyaki consisted of steamed broccoli, slices of luke warm beef and teriyaki sauce drizzled over it. It wasn't the best needless to say.
My husband had the citrus beef and he thoroughly didn't like it.
The service was mediocre. I won't be going back.
OVER PRICED!!!!! – This is the most expensive Thai restaurant. Extremely overpriced!!! I had the Pad Thai, it was $16.95 for noodles that were very salty! The food was average. The driinks were $10.00 a piece and watered down. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. That was the only good thing about this place. Our entire party was shocked at the prices this restaurant charges for thai food (which is normally very inexpensive).
The food made my husband and I sick with an upset stomach and nausea. I would not reccomend this place...too overpriced for what you get! I'm surprised they are still in business.
pricey? – This is the most pricey of the family owned resturants, I am part of the Virasin family, and if you think this one is overpriced try, Mango's, Chow Thai [this is Chow Thai Pacific Rim there is a difference his one is more fusion] or one of her sisters resturants there are two named Samui.
Expensive, Bad Food – The food was severely overpriced. Pad Thai at Pei Wei tasted about the same with a larger quantity at half price. They just simply scooped coconut milk over panang. $14 for duck noodle soup is beyond my imagination. They have nice decorations and service was not bad. Overall, a bad experience...stay away from this place unless you want to show off to your friend that you have deep pockets.
Best Chile Mango Sea Bass on the planet! – We live near by and visit occasionally because it is very expensive, especially if you have kids. However, for a special treat, I go for their Mango Chile Sea Bass with coconut rice and vegetables. It is off the charts good. I have converted many to this dish and they lick the plate. Other food there is fairly good (although the tempura shrimp in a martini glass with 3 sauces is pretty great too) and the Tom Kha soup (with or without noodles is great). The mango sea bass is worth the trip. It is never busy which makes me wonder how they stay opened, the guy must have some bucks. But, it is a good special occasion meal. Not great for kids although mine like the fried rice.
Exceptional Thai food – I discovered this place quite by accident. This is the BEST Thai food I have ever had. I come here quite often and I live 75 miles away. Beautifully presented food....absolutely delicious....a little pricey...but worth it. I highly recommend it !!!!
Attentive service and a bright-on-black, avant-garde setting makes dining at this Plano Thai restaurant an appetizing experience. – The Scene
Pacific Rim is the swanky, urbane counterpart to its romantic and quirky sisters in Addison and Plano. Jungle murals throb with color against black booths. Translucent netting separates the circular steel bar from the crowd, and parachute silk sprawls across the ceiling.
Stunning and artistic presentation wins over diners before the first bite. Sweet mangoes and savory vegetables dress a buttery, light Chilean sea bass. The sauteed cashew chicken is tender bits of poultry with crisp baby corn and juicy black mushrooms. The beef with hot chilies will appeal to those with asbestos tongues. Summer rolls of mango, rice noodles and mint burst with freshness. For dessert, although the fruit-infused Thai tiramisu and the fried banana spring rolls may tantalize the imagination, the all-around winner is a Thai tradition: steaming, sticky rice bathed in sweet coconut milk and mango.
A Lot for a Little – The food was severely overpriced. The restaurant was nearly empty, so wait staff was all gathered around us, watching our every move. Ive had better pad thai at take out places for a fraction of the cost. Overall, a bad experience, enough to come home and write this review to warn others.
Did not meet expectations – We had read rave reviews for this Restaurant in both Guide Live and your site but were quite disappointed. The food was good but nothing great and the prices were definitely high. The grilled Tilapia that was on the special was a little undercooked and though the staff were very courteous about it, it still took the charm away from teh vening. The chicken and prawn dish was good and so were the crab and avocado rolls. Overall not a great experience.
The Best Pad Thai in dallas – It was my First time there and I was on a First Date it was the Perfect Setting. The place is gorgeous inside I ordered a Sushi roll for us to share as an appetizer I had Pad Thai which I order at every Thai restaurant and this one was hands down the best. My date had the Scallop special that the chef recommended she loved it. I will defintly return
