Good Food, Poor Service – I have been to this Shallots a few times and I have received inconsistent service. The food is good, not great, but worth trying. Unfortunately, I found the wait staff to be unprofessional with no sense of urgency which can be very irritating. The environment is great and the restaurant has a lot of potential but I can't give it more than 3 stars.
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PLACE!! – Since there aren't any decent sushi/thai places near the office, I make the effort to drive here for their fresh tasting sushi. Their pad thai is on point and delicious! I especially love their happy hour, which is great! You can get a variety of food for a minimal amount, allowing you to sample a whole bunch of sushi!
One of th Better sushi places around town. – One of the better sushi joints around the local area. I still prefer places like MF Sushi in Buckhead or Midtown, but those are definitely a good drive. I also appreciate the variety if you entertain friends that aren't into raw fish.
DEFINITELY WORTH TRYING!!! – Based on the reviews: I decided to take my Mother here for her B-day lunch. I REALLY loved the restaurant's ambience! Loved the wooded walls/floors/tables/etc. Very "inviting" feel to the restaurant!
We are NOT completely new to eating sushi--but completely new at trying Thai Food. The waiter was extremely patient and VERY kind to us -- especially after I told him we were "new" to eating this type of cuisine. That was a HUGE plus--and is enough to make me want to come back repeatedly for such GREAT customer service! He explained and clarified all of my questions. He also made great suggestions when I asked him to. He just delivered very admirable Customer Service that exceeded our expectations! (THANK YOU!)
I tried the Pad Thai that everyone seems to give high reviews to...and my Mother ordered the Pad See Ew. I tasted both--and I fell in love with the Pad See Ew MORE than their signature Pad Thai. I've never had Pad Thai before visiting Shallots...so I am really not in a position to judge its taste compared to other restaurants. I do know that I did not care for the taste of the Pad Thai NOODLE I tried, however. The noodles were very sticky--almost a dry taste to them. The Pad Thai noodle tasted like it could have very well been a bit "overcooked"!! Whereas, the Pad See Ew was more of a "moveable noodle" (NOT sticky/dry) and VERY VERY tasty!
I did ask my waiter about the taste of the Pad Thai and the noodle tasting "sticky"/dry -- he insisted that this was the way Pad Thai noodles are supposed to taste. I'm not sure about that one...I will have to try another top rated Pad Thai restaurant to compare. When I do--I will update this review with my final verdict! :-)
We also had Ginger Salad and Miso Soup to come with our dishes--they were equally DELICIOUS!
My mom ordered a side order of stir fry rice--cooked to PERFECTION!
We also ordered Sushi.
We were "new" to tasting their signature sushis...so we chose things at random! My Mom tried the Super Crab Rolls and I had the Shrimp Tempura Rolls and Ebi. Also...we had the Super Crunchy Rolls in a "to-go" box!
The Rolls were pretty tasty....definitely NOT bad at all!!
However, I've tasted better "Super Crunchy Rolls" elsewhere. The thing I think we were missing here was the actual CRUNCH to the roles. Where we've tried this type of roll before (at a different location)....the crunch seemed to have come from the FRIED SHRIMP & CUCUMBERS!! Shallots version of the "crunchy" roll does NOT contain these ingredients.... Whatever they used instead--did not meet what I was looking for in terms of a CRUNCH roll.
Thus, these roles slightly disappointed me because I paid $11.00 for a Super NOT-SO- crunchy sushi roll.
It was my Mom's birthday...so she received a complimentary candle and small discount. The waiter received the discount back--because we tipped him EXTREMELY well!
We definitely plan to go back again and try different dishes! The ambience and customer service will keep us coming back again and again. To boot--the food is still quite tasty--(despite the complaints above)!
THANKS Shallots Restaurant! :-)
Great Thai food at reasonable prices – I have been a few times with my wife and we have always been impressed with the food. She always get sushi and I always get Thai, so both are worthy of having. They have a few Thai items on the menu that arent the traditional things you expect to find (the spicy holy basil chicken is great), but the normal Pad Thai type stuff is great.
I have always had good service, but it is a family restaurant, so you might get the occasional crying kid. It probably isnt the best place for a romantic anniversary or anything like that, but for a normal night out it would be a hit for everyone, and not break the bank
Great food and service – I've eaten here a number of times with from 2 to 8 people. The service and the food are always excellent. My fiance is addicted to the Wild Jungle Curry! We're going to be regulars!
Go during happy hour for really great prices!! Even my "broke" friends can go for $1 sushi.
Thank you so much for being our regulars. Please let us know if there is anything that we can do to make your dining with us more enjoyable.
You must come to take advantage of our Happy Hour from 5 - 7 p.m. everyday. Your fiance will get 20% off "Wild Jungle Curry" and very cheap drinks such as domestic beer for ony $2.00 or a glass of house wine for $3.00 and of course $1 Sushi menu that truly fits every diner's budget.
If your friend loves $1 Sushi please visit "Shallots" on Sunday for Brunch 12-3 p.m. a lot of great prices for Thai & Sushi, even some continental menu such as pancake, french toast etc.
Looking forward to seeing your group at Sunday Brunch !
Wonderful Thai food and cozy atmoshere – I've been coming for years, a very cozy place. I received my own personal chopsticks too! The Thai food is very good I always order the Masaman curry, and they update their menu with new specials pretty often.
Best Happy Hour – you've got to make it to Shallots between 5-7 pm anyday.Their Happy Hour is fantastic. Starts with Local beer only $2.00 plus get 20% off any entree, but I love $1 sushi-thai menu sheet that just made me a very happy and fully satisfied man last saturday, all under my $10.00 budget.
To my curious mind I tried "Drunken Peanut"
from $1 menu to munch with my Budwiser and it was a perfect match. Well , for next time, the sake bomb would be my order with that crunchy munchy Drunken Peanut once again. It has some kind of salty onion-gingery flavor skin on peanut, sound a little wierd? but trust me it is very gooood! My server explained to me that this type of peanut is a natvie Thai favorite for muching with Iced cold Singha or Chang Beer. My server "Nuchi" is very friendly and prompt , the dining atmosphere gives me a family style sincerely welcoming feeling, casual, cozy and clean, the food (especially $1 Sushi) is excellent both in taste and value, so the five stars is the least I can endorse my appreciation to "Shallots".
Thank you very much for your wonderful comment on Happy Hour. We are glad that you enjoy "Drunken Peanut" , next time try "Thai beef Jerky"
it is also the best companion with any beer. Yes, you have to try Sake Bomb , it is fun with a surprise punch !
Nuchie says Thank you and looking forward to serving you again soon.
