I was excited to go to the brand new Thai Style in Peurto Banus. It had a huge fanfare opening, very grand and much publicised.
I took the precaution of popping in to book personally a few days prior. They were very smartly dressed and took time to tell me that the cook had been employed for many years as personal chef to the King and Queen of Thailand. They told me they had 3 more restaurants in Spain as well as Rome and Paris. SO FAR SO GOOD
Last night we went. The soup starter ordered by my wife came cold, was tiny and although it was brown in colour tasted not much different to hot water. 8 euros. It took a further 20 minutes to come back hot by which time my daughter and I had finished our tiny tiny tastless starters.
I had pad thai as a main 18 euros. A gloopy mess with 2 prawns and 2 small pieces of chicken. My daughter had chicken curry with rice as an accompanyment. No chicken at all and the rice came half an hour after she finished her course My wife had sea bass steamed. Tasty enough but cold and very very small.
There was a cabaret of sorts as about 12 spanish workmen showed up with placards at the entrance to the restaurant. It seems that with all the flash talk, uniforms and general bullshit these men had not been paid by the owner for their hard work. They looked sad, disheartened but were respectfully peacefull. The police allowed them to stay. Some disgruntled customers even helped the workers word their placards in English and French
The management did not care a jot about the customer complaints and suddenly their english deserted them. The staff mainly Thai seemed well used to complaints.
This is without doubt the biggest and most shamefull food con I have ever experienced anywhere. I was so incensed that I made a denouncement at Marbella Police Station this morning. Please pass this reveiw on to prevent others being cheated
