Last time, I wrote a glowing review of Linda Modern Thai. Let me tell you this: I’m not a happy customer – and I don’t like writing scathing reviews. As a frequent customer of Linda Modern Thai, I’m rarely disappointed except for this time.
Apparently, Linda Modern Thai has changed the menu. I was not impressed with the selection. The red curry duck was no longer on the menu.
The service was extremely slow. My friend and I waited a good 20 minutes for service. We just sat there and no one came to get our orders. I was shocked! Finally, our server came over and told us she was new. I don’t fault her for that. She was very nice. I think it was management’s fault for not hiring enough servers as it was a busy Saturday night. I don’t like waiting long for my food.
But that was not the end of it. I ordered the Bangkok Fried Hen and it came out less than stellar. I didn’t bother taking a picture of my dish like I always do because presentation was severely lacking. The fried hen was served on top of a banana leaf in a metal tray with a bowl of soup on the side. Honestly, the whole dish looked disgusting. The black bean sauce was too salty and when combined with the saltiness of the hen, I felt like I was tasting metal. The hen tasted ordinary like Popeye’s Chicken. I prefer a sweeter sauce to counter the saltiness. I’ve made fried chicken before and it never came out like this.
So this experience at Linda Modern Thai was a huge letdown. I expected more.
