Thor: Worth the trip?

Made a reservation for later this month (Australia Day). I don't think it is, but tell me it is not staid! And, tell me that the food is good.

  1. Sorry, it s---s. At least you have time to change your mind.

    1. very mixed to negative views on Thor on the site. If you are looking for Austrian (not Australian) or Eastern European food, try Blaue Gans, Wallse, Silver Swan to name a few.

      1. The chef, menu, and concept have completely changed recently. No longer Austrian: http://www.hotelonrivington.com/thor....
        Dbird, I'm not sure if your comments apply to the current or past incarnation. I haven't been to the new one.

        1. Hmmm. Are any of Stanton Social, Mai House, or Tia Pol any better? What about Urena - doubt if I'll get a reservation though.

          1. ..Mai House is a really nice huge space and food is pretty decent (Vietnamese fusion) and they also serve good cocktails with a huge bar area up-front. I doubt that you'll have a problem getting a table there too...just avoid the vietnamese coffee at all cost.
