It was the first time in my entire life that I was made to wait for almost an hour in the restaurant before the person appeared for dinner.
We have set up our dinner appointment at 7:30 pm, moved it to 8:00 pm, and it was around 8:50 pm till my friend showed up.
I couldn’t even wait. I started ordering some appetizers because I was just so hungry.
My friend just plopped on the chair and started eating after arriving, saying, “Sorry, I got a bit lost.“
And that was that.
No wonder my friend is still single. Even with a lot of patience, I think being late for almost an hour is just too much. I think it’s a sign of disrespect for other people’s time, and if I have known beforehand this would happen, I wouldn’t have confirmed the date.
Geez, I was quite tempted to just go, but luckily, I had my books with me so I was able to do quite a bit of studying.
Sigh, oh well, at least the food was good. 😛
The restaurant we went to was the Locuz Thai and Sake Bar located at#29, Lane 236, Dunhua South Road Sec. 1 (Tel: (02) 2771 2033).
First, you exit the Chungxiao Fuxing MRT Exit 3 and walk straight. On the first corner (which is at Bistro 98), turn right. Go forward two corners and then turn left at that alley. It’s on the left side.
Locuz offered a pretty sweet deal: NT$390 for 38 dishes and NT$450 for the entire menu selection, but I daresay that the NT$390 deal (with refillable softdrinks and dessert). That’s for your eat-all-you-can, baby!
And though their food ain’t as delicate as the other upper class Thai restaurants, it still offers you great value for your money and the service is pretty decent.
No surprise, the place was still packed when we arrived.
For our table, I ordered the regular staples such as the beef salad which was both beef and sour all at the same time…
Some zhao-ma ji (Thai fried chicken), squid chili salad, and their yue-xia-pin (flat shrimp moon-sized cakes):
But who am I to complain? For the price of NT$390 + 10% tax for my entire meal, I was sated and happy. 🙂
So if any of you would like some cheap Thai eats and have much room on your tummy to spare, then I daresay, try out the Locuz Thai and Sake Bar. Not only is it at a convenient location, but food is pretty decent and the service is above average.
Oh, and if you go, do choose your dining partners carefully and yes, leave after he/she is late after 30 minutes. That is indeed too much.
