Oh, how I hate to write this negative review. Unfortunately we are done with STK. The service and atmosphere was fine - quite good, in fact. But the food was awful. The thai spring rolls were bland though fresh and we hoped the peanut sauce would punch it up. Instead it was a tasteless paste of nothing. Even the Sriracha I requested, sparingly doled out in a tiny bowl, didn't do anything for it. My husband's chicken lo mein was even worse. The noodles were so overcooked and bloated they tasted more like gnocchi or dumplings. The chicken was overcooked and tough, but since there was so little of it in the dish...ah, what can you say? The overall flavor of the mushy vegetables resembled cornstarch or flour. Sorry, never again.
This was my husband's fourth time at the restaurant and my fifth. We went mid-week for a quiet dinner to reconnect after a couple of weeks of business travel between us. While we appreciate the interior design style, they MUST do something about the terrible acoustics and be mindful of the music volume. We sat at a small high table in the bar area, no more than 30 inches apart and had to project our voices just to hear each other. Not really a big deal…just an annoyance. Second, I recommend a more accurate description of the spice level of their Panang Curry dish, which I tried for the first time. While I expected spicy, but this was so hot, even my husband who grew up eating very hot green chili could barely eat it. A bit of a bummer.
Great lunch experience. The menu is large but not overwhelming. The staff walked us through our choices with ease.
BUMMED! We have been fans of STK for a looong time. Today we suggested a client meet us for lunch today. We ordered green curry, lo mien, and tuna tatami salad. Service was tentative and underwhelming. The food was not anywhere as good as we remember. The ahi on the salad was skimpy, sliced so thin you could see through it which would have been fine if they gave you more than 4 skinny pieces. Not worth the $. Chicken in the lo mien was dry and fried. We didn't dare ask the client how his curry was. We were SO disappointed. Our waiter looked scared. Plus we saw a cook in the kitchen eating, licking his fingers and not washing his hands. Uck! All in all, it was a bummer and while we'd like to try STK again soon, we're leery.
STK ensures speedy, yet gracious service for a lunch hour treat. If you enjoy spicy food, try their Kare Laksa. It's delicious.
Street Kitchen has great food and drinks, and the happy hour prices make these aspects of their menu available to diners at a fraction of the regular menu price. I was especially shocked to see some of their specialty sushi rolls on the happy hour menu...but thankful:) Happy Hour is not only affordable at SK, it is fit for a foodie!
Really glad we found this place. Parking can be a pain, but it's worth it. Seriously creative Asian fusion tucked away in the DTC!
When it first opened, Street Kitchen was a favorite, eclectic dishes, great atmosphere, and fun drinks. Sadly, now their menu is laminated with pictures of the food, the dishes are very similar to what you'd find in any other Asian place, and the quality - from food quality to cleanliness to staff, has relegated it to just another so-so restaurant. Sad to see it happen.
This was my 4th time dining at Street Kitchen and the food has always been consistently good with the exception of the Tom Kha Goong which was extremely salty and had a thicker consistency than normal. The waiter, although nice, forgot a couple of our dishes which we had to ask for a couple of times before they finally came out. Our waiter also added 20% gratuity to our bill for 4 adults and 1 child, which I thought was odd and didn't even mention it to us. Overall, we would definitely go back for the food and always check our bill before paying it.
We went here for date night and loved it! Thanks for making it such a fun time!
