Songkran Thai Kitchen - Galleria Ratings and Reviews
I've been to Songkran for lunch many times, but had never been for dinner. We went late on a Sunday night and the restaurant was less than half full. We hoped to get great, quick service and be on our way. Service was incredibly slow all on fronts and not terribly friendly. I may return for lunch, but am not putting it on the short list for dinners.
This restaurant is in decline. The service was atrocious notwithstanding no one was in the restaurant. No service utinsils or plates and extra bowls. The server lost my credit card somewhere on the floor. We've come here for the last three years and the last few trips have been similarly uninspiring. Hope things improve. We won't return anytime soon
This restaurant is one of the loudest places I have been in years. The tables at long rectangles, yet the cuisine is Thai and served family style. When have I ever had a $100 per person Thai dinner? And did I mention loud? The food was OK, but not really memorable.
On our recent visit we were particularly impressed with how beautiful the space is. The bar and decor are outstanding, which contribute to an intimate atmosphere. There is a small but nice outdoor patio which would be nice during more temperate months.
The food was quite good, in particular the "Heavenly Beef" and the duck curry main. Veggie spring rolls were tasty, well executed and hot. The Pad Thai was good, but not outstanding. Service was attentive though a few tweaks would make it outstanding.
The drink and wine menu is good; from what we saw the Happy Hour menu would be quite a deal.
We will be back.
I wanted to love this Thai restaurant, my wife and I liked it, but I have to admit I would probably try another Thai or Chinese restaurant before I returned to Songkrat. I did enjoy the patio we were seated at, very quiet with some greenery and soft background music. Nothing bad here, just lacked an extra gear in the food department vs a more plebian suburban Thai restaurant. I guess I expected something that didn't seem to be present in the food department last Saturday night.
The waitstaff was amazing. On my first visit recently, I forgot my credit card with the bill after dinner. I returned the next day, and to my surprise, the same waitress recognized me and happily brought my card for me without being promted. And the food was bomb, obviously.
I keep going back for the green curry with chicken and Thai basil. I really should try something new but I just love this curry. Fresh basil, chicken is not overcooked and the curry is flavorful and ever so slightly sweet - I assume from the coconut. Appetizers shrimp cakes were also delicious, not a chewy thing about them. Larb Gai required salt and I would have liked a stronger lime taste but it was still good. Our server was new and very charming so Im happy to forgive the unforgivable mistake of bringing our mains before we were done with the appetizers.
Food was good quality and well prepared. The wine by the glass was excessively overpriced. The meals were also at the higher end of the scale. The casual atmosphere of the restaurant is a nice setting, but it doesn't exude fine dining, as the prices did. I do not expect to return and I can't imagine they will still be in business in a year or two.
