Do not go to Asian/Thai takeaway at Kusnacht train station stop

Have gotten used to rude service living in Switzerland but did not expect such churlish and arrogant service from the Thai takeaway at the Kusnach trainstation stop. Food was expensive and small portion.. and I dont eat much in comparison to others. Food was greasy and overcooked and when I complained.. I was rudely advised thats the way we cook it and we like it!

Re: Do not go to Asian/Thai takeaway at Kusnacht train station stop

I do love these random negative restaurant/eatery reviews. Makes me want to try the place as I very rarely believe the one off rants.

Everything you've said is not fact, just your opinion. For starters (pun absolutely intended) you mention the food was expensive. what are we talking about here? If it was over 30 chuffs then yes it was expensive, but I've had costlier takeaways.

The portion was small. Well, I've sat down with some people who've complained that the size of the meal was too small, while I, having ordered the exact same thing, am wondering how I'm going to get through it without blowing a hole in the side of my abdomen.

Over cooked and greasy - again that's just personal opinion. It may well be that plenty of other people like it just the way it is.

Hmmm, hungry now.

I would write a honest rating on tripadvisor on this restaurant. Other people will appreciate your advice.

Right

I love Italian cuisine, but in Italian restaurants never manage to eat the whole thing

When being in a place with steaks I always order "bien cuit / very well done" which for many people is "over-cooked"

"Greasy" may be just right for me and others

Most cuisines from the continents of Africa and Asia tend towards what "westerners" regard as "overcooking", and this with some reasons !

I might recommend a visit to the meat-souks in Casablanca and Cairo, where you see your meat covered by 1000 flies per square meter ! Locals after buying keep their stuff for three days in the oven, while some people take it "all included" in the local Hilton a few hours later

Re: Do not go to Asian/Thai takeaway at Kusnacht train station stop

To be fair to the OP, I don't think he was upset that the food was not to his taste but rather the way the workers handled his complaint.
