I had lunch here at the Thai Palace today. The magic noodles truly are magical. Just the right amount of spice. Every time I am in Springfield I eat here. Great service and magic noodles. Their prices are great also.
This place was awful. I eat Thai food every week in Houston Texas and my travels abroad. And this was by far the sloppiest and worst prepared Thai food I've ever had. Basically brought out a big plate of over cooked slop and said it was Thai food LOL
This review is based on the speed of service. Something has happened recently with their staffing (maybe they lost a chef?) and they have taken 35+ minutes to bring out the food the last two times I've gone to eat there over my lunch break. That does not work for me. Won't be coming back for a while at least. Hoping they can get their stuff together because I've been pretty happy with the food.
The sushi is lackluster at best. The rice is never properly made and I'm starting to believe they're using instant rice. The fish is of questionable quality and freshness. Most is "tube fish" or "safety fish" that is extremely processed food with lots of preservatives in most cases. Not sure what brand of "toothpaste fish" this place uses, but that's what it is on your more standard rolls.
The avocado is either spoiled or not ripe, they never get it right anymore. The sauce that goes on the rolls is slopped on and is usually way, way too much. No "artistic" care is used at all on to-go orders.
The larger "American" style sushi like the spider roll is never cut to proper size, nearly always too large. I've seen people have to cut their sushi in half to get it in their mouth, absurd.
My friend's wife made sushi for the first time the other night using nothing but YouTube/Internet instruction and her sushi was at least three times the quality if not more.
YOUR SUSHI NEEDS HELP! FIX IT! LEARN TO USE YOUTUBE!
I love this place. The prices are great and the options are wonderful. You have Sushi, Cashew Chicken (and other fried options), Stir Fry, Thai Curries, and a great assortment of appetizers. Don't let the store front fool you, this place is a MUST!!
If you go during lunch they have self serve soup that is an Asian inspired chicken soup. Excellent and free!
Be careful on the spice. They have a scale of 5. If you're a lover of spicy...go for the 5, but be warned!
