Thai Chili Spotswood - Downhill alert

seal Feb 2, 2010 03:06 PM

I am very disheartened writing this as Thai Chili was my go to place for a while, but ...

Over the last three visits I have seen all the food I used to love turn into barely edible shadows of what used to be. From soup to salad to mains, it is all mediocre at best now.

Has anyone else noticed this? I did give it three tries, but I'd still feel better if somebody else could chime in too.

    I agree. We got it the other day, and were disappointed. My family will not eat it again.

    It was good 5 or 6 years ago, not sure what happened.

      I've got my 'go to' Thai place and it's been good for 15+ years. They come and they go.....and some are just the 'real deal'. I won't chance eating Thai without a solid solid recommendation.

      Living down the shore, I've yet to try Siam Basil in Sea Girt. I'll give it a shot one of these days based on some vet CH'ers comments as to how good it is.

        What place is that Jake? We love Thai food and have not really found anything worthy down the shore either (we too live there). When we feel like it we do go to Four Seasons in Piscataway; that in my opinion is the best.

          Cat, the above post from 10/2 is referencing Four Seasons. In my opinion, I've yet to have better and that includes the myriad of Thai eateries along 9th ave in NYC as well.
