Thai not ready for prime time


Posted by Annie in Restaurants on May 29, 2020

We stopped in at Sonora Thai Cuisine restaurant in Sonora today.  We parked a block away, because you know how parking is downtown. Impossible!  I just love rice noodles and mine just don’t turn out right, no matter how hard I try. 

Sonora Thai Cuisine - Restaurant | 51 S Washington St, Sonora, CA ...

It’s about 3:00 p.m., the sun is beating down, it’s hot. The menu is outside and the phone number posted on the window. After looking over the menu, I was ready to order, so I tried calling, the phone is busy. I see the door is open, so I go inside. The lady inside, walks to the middle of the room, tells me to call, I told her I tried to call and the line was busy.  I ordered the Pad See Ew and the lady disappeared into the kitchen.

Another lady showed up, she told me to call.  I explained that I had already ordered.  She went and prepared my bill, stood in the middle of the room and shouted the amount, and asked if we were paying by cash or credit.  My husband told her cash and passed her a $100 bill across the tables they had surrounding the door, so there was a small square to stand in.  She took the $100 bill, sprayed in with something and came back with our change.  She held the money with two fingers.  

After we paid, she asks us to wait outside.  So, we went outside in the hot sun and waited for our food.  After about 15-minutes, my husband started to talk about how we had to walk to our car after we finally got our food.  That scared me, walking up hill in that heat.  I went back inside, where the air conditioner cooled the building quite nicely.  I faced the door and tried to be unobtrusive. A few minutes later, she brought my food to the door, and if looks could kill, I’d have been dead on the spot.

These ladies should not be open.  It been a long time since I’ve felt so unwanted.  The food was good, but I won’t be going back there until  things go back to normal.  That was just too creepy.

    You’re a bad person. You don’t have the right to endanger other people just because you don’t believe in science.

    You are selfish and only care about yourself. I was attempting to help this business by buying from them. As for science? You should do some more research, because you obviously don’t understand what’s going on.

    You are showing your ignorance Meg.
