Urbanspoon Blog – Thai Son (Elmhurst)
This place works ok for what it is.
Whenever I’m in the area I go here for either the grilled pork chops, the grilled chicken, or the bo luc lac (beef cubes). My wife stops by sometimes on the way home from work and picks up some dishes from time to time as well.
You can get any of the aforementioned dishes over rice and you won’t go wrong with that meal. I usually get a summer roll with that and I’m good to go.
I cannot speak for the other items because these are the only things I get from Vietnamese places. I will say that the service is pretty fast, no frills style. Typical Asian place, as I’ve said in other reviews of places in Flushing and Chinatown, don’t come expecting smiles and stuff from the staff. It’s not that type of a party. More along the lines of “Wha yu wan”.
One time the lady that works there was really angry, she had this look of resentment on her face, scary looking female. I didn’t want anything to do with her… “Uhm, no, I don’t need another fork, it’s ok that this one fell on the floor, I’m sure you guys keep the floor quite sanitary, please don’t trouble yourself”..
But all that aside, if you want a good dish (the ones I mentioned above are the only ones I will vouch for) then try this place. Leave your emotions at home though, cause ain’t nothing sweet about it.
