Take Away Service
We went to Yimsiam Thai Restaurant with friends with a DailyDo voucher. The service was pretty much the worst I'd ever had. Only one waitress - an older Thai lady - for the whole place which was fairly busy. She was annoyed at us right from when we turned up because she had thought we'd only booked for two people (which I hadn't). She rushed us the whole night through, snapped at us and everything. Was a challenge just trying to get drinks. I understand they were understaffed but that's no excuse to be mad at everyone for eating there!The food was nice but all 3 of the curries came out too hot when none of them had ordered it hot. We asked for one to be remade because my poor friend was on fire and couldn't enjoy it all. This REALLY made the waitress angry because some had been eaten - go figure! That's how you find out it's too hot, by eating some! She did exchange it but only with half a meal and very angrily.The decor was average, nothing special. The only good things I have to say about Yimsiam Thai Restaurant was that the entrees and the Pad Thai were nice and everything was reasonably priced, including wine. Fast delivery of meals too. Overall though it was not enough to remedy the terrible service which really killed the evening. I would not recommend this place AT ALL!
Yimsiam Thai Restaurant is my 'go-to' for thai food in Takapuna. Really good food for very good prices - and if I get there early enough I can sneak a good pint or two in at The Backyard...double bonus!
