Old Ubol's/New Arunee

hotdishandkimchi Feb 20, 2007 09:40 AM

So I decided to try the new Arunee this weekend since I was optimistic that it might be different in some way from Ubol's. Much to my dismay, I learned that you now must pay $1 if you would like rice with your entree. Not extra rice, but just rice in general. That is really crazy to me. Also, I don't think they actually are a different restaurant since they still had my credit card number on file... As for the chow, it seemed exactly the same as before.

    Haven't tried the restaurant, but many Thai restuarants charge extra for rice, Sripraphai included.

      Where is the new Arunee? Is this the same as the on one 81st in Jackson Heights?
      I ordered from some curry for delivery from Arunee and they did not ask me if I wanted rice and did not deliver any. Then they refused to deliver me just rice. I was annoyed as I don't enjoy drinking curry on it's own!

        I had lunch at Arunee in Jackson Heights with a friend who ordered a pot of Tea and asked for a second cup so we could share. The response, "absolutely not, you must both order a pot of tea." Someone sitting next to us did not finish the meal and wanted to take home leftovers. "Not Permitted."

          Seems like they need to learn a thing or two about service!
