Re: “Pittsburgh Thai Restaurant by Boris

Boris is a fabulous chef! The vegetables are always done perfectly and so fresh and he makes my daughters' and my favorite appetizer and dessert of any restaurant, the crying tiger beef appetizer, and the pumpkin custard and sticky rice come highly recommended

Re: “Pittsburgh Thai Restaurant by Boris

An excellent epicurian experience in a charming part of town. It is so worth trying, as you will look forward to making it a regular to your lunch or dining destinations.

Re: “Southern Hospitality

I went to visit this restaurant last night based on the CP review as well as others on the net. My experience was so unbelievably bad that I can't understand how anyone would continue to patronize such a deplorable restaurant. We showed up right around 8 PM - ample time to receive our food and eat before the 9 PM closing time. There was another couple sitting in the booth behind us who arrived a short time after us. The very nice lady who was our server waited on the table behind us but didn't take our orders for another 10 minutes or so. The fact that they were out of just about everything they advertise on their menu should have been my first clue that this was not going to be a good experience. When she finally brought us our glasses of Countrytyme Lemonade (I saw the container on the counter), she took our food orders and vanished for another 50 minutes. Imagine our surprise when a gentleman arrived at our table with our food in to-go containers and informed us that they were closing and that we needed to leave. The other table had received their food and were eating - they were not asked to leave, however. We were not being disruptive nor did we complain about the long wait for service. We were just sitting at the table chatting. We were so shocked at the fact that the restaurant gave us our food to-go that we paid and left. When we got home, we discovered that the food was barely edible - particularly the fish which was fishy and overcooked. The disgustingly sweet beans and yams tasted like they came out of a can. There was no bread despite the fact that the menu said that the meal came with bread. The menu says that they have chicken breasts, but, in reality, all they serve are wings. The wings were OK but I think that they were frozen Costco wings. The only part of the meal that was remotely edible was the macaroni and cheese. I will NEVER go back here again and I will spread the word among my friends, as well. I never hope for a restaurant to close but, based on my experience last night, this one certainly deserves to close.

Areas such as Hazelwood need such places to provide fresh fruits and vegetables at a fair price! Kudos to Dianne Shenk for moving forward on this!

I have deleted two previous comments that traded libelous accusations.

Re: “Yovi's Hot Dogs in Market Square is your local source for Chicago-style Italian beef

I miss Yuvi's. When I worked downtown I'd drop in almost every Friday, always the same, 2 chili cheese dogs & a chili cheese fry. Often was ready when I got through the line to order. Great service.

Re: “New food-truck regulations idling in face of restaurant concerns

Pittsburgh is sometimes its own worst enemy. It inhibits business unless your some major corporation. This does not help when business are at an all time low for hiring workers. Inhibiting buisness is bad for everyone. Wise up Pittsburgh, you have so much to offer, but you keep it a secret.
They need to get this back on the agenda. What sort of moron would park in front of a resturant that already serves that type of food? This is not something that is rocket science.

Re: “Sienna Mercato Emporio

Good review. Agreed with most of your comments. Not sure why anyone would put meatballs as the main attraction.

A grasshopper walked into a bar. The bartender said, "You know there's a drink named after you?" The grasshopper said, "There's a drink named Steve?"
