Mengrai Thai where are you?

Does anyone know what has happened to Mengrai thai? I was there a few weeks ago and now I can;t get an answer on the phone. Keeps ringing. Tried even during the evening. Have they closed up? Skipped town?
Very strange.

  1. I was just there last weekend, and everything seemed fine. No idea....

    1. I was there a couple weeks ago and all was well. I'm not absolutely sure but I might have had a problem getting someone on the phone too.... now that I think of it, when I called to confirm the reservation that I'd left on the voicemail (yeah, I did hit voicemail at least once), I actually got the owner (I think) on his cell on his way to the restaurant. Given that scenario, it may be that the answering machine is only on sometimes?

      Good luck getting through!

        I think you are right. No one answered every time I called, just rang and rang. They must have call display because someone called me back even though no answering machine picked up. By that time it was too late,I had already booked elsewhere. I mean he called 2 days later!
        He was pleasant but also told me that if/when I come in I would have to vacate the table for the next seating. I hate being told that. I understand the business for him but I don't like feeling pressured. They need to work on their phone service. How hard is it to get an answering machine?

        oh well!
        Thanks Ediblethoughts.

          Yeah, I'd say call answer isn't too much to ask in this day and age. (I never mind being told I have to vacate if the time period is reasonable--like it I come in at 5:30 and they say I have to be out by 7pm, I'm good with that because, seriously, I WANT to be out by 7pm!)
