Let me set the scenery for you: For a usually packed house place, Thai Tom was, for once, surprisingly pretty barren -- like maybe 5 people in the whole place. So we were seated within minutes of arriving. Our waitress hurries us to our tiny, two-seat table and quickly asks us if we know what we want within 2 minutes of us being seated. Okaaaaaaaay... A little weird to be so pushy in a more than half-empty restaurant, but whatever. Geez, lady, we're not slot machines. You can't just pull the lever as soon as we get here and expect an answer. We both order the shrimp pad thai, watching from our seats as the Thai chefs heat hot oil over a wide carbon steel wok. Their hands quickly moving the fresh ingredients into the hot wok and stirring and flipping with such crazy fast precision. Our food arrives not 10 minutes later, all piping hot and fragrant with spices. A little bit of bean sprouts, some preserved radishes, scallions, tamarind paste, fish sauce, chili peppers, scrambled eggs,  and about 5 large shrimps all mixed in with medium-sized rice noodles. So incredibly delicious. So tangy, sweet, sour, and a touch salty all at once. *DROOLS* Needless to say, we devoured it in a few minutes flat. Before we even finish our plates though, our waitress comes by and drops the check. I look around the joint and see that this tiny 20-seater restaurant is still rather empty. We wait a few minutes to finish our food, and then pay the check. As soon as we pay it, our waitresss comes back, picks it up, and is cleaning our table as soon as we get up. I mean, I am all for efficiency, but hurrying customers in a very empty restaurant is not cool. Not cool at all. Seriously, girl, you need to chill the frick out. And let your customers enjoy their darn food and experience. One less star for their less-than-exemplary customer service. 4-stars for the great, quick Thai food. <p>The Good: Food The Bad: Service The Meh: Cash Only My fiancé and I went here on a not very busy weekday around 2 pm for a late lunch.
