DOORDASH Customers please read!

DoorDash customers please read

If you are ordering our food through DoorDash (DD), please be aware that you are contracting a third party delivery service.  We are not affiliated with DD. There is no official partnership, contract or compensation between DD and our restaurant.  As such, there is no line of communication between DD and our restaurant, other than when a DD rep calls your order in.  If for example we are unable to provide service for any reason (power outage, holiday, etc.), we have no means to relay the info to a DD administrator to suspend customer orders.

The way that DD operates is that it has literally copied & pasted our menu onto its website without our consent or permission.  When you place an order via the DD website, a DD agent places a phone call to our general phone number just as you would.  Your credit card payment is collected solely by DD.  DD dispatches a driver, who in turn pays us upon pick-up with a corporate credit card.  In other words DD has been able to operate without consent or contract with the restaurant, by posing as the customer.

Neither the restaurant, nor DD receives compensation from the other.  The restaurant just makes its face value menu price from the sale/ order when the DD driver renders payment at the restaurant.  DD makes its money from a service fee to the customer.  DD compensates the driver along with any tips from the customer.    

With that said, we recognize that in today’s World, a third party delivery service is convenient and mutually beneficial to all three parties involved.   Mistakes have been few and far between, so we will allow DD to continue operating in this unsanctioned capacity.   However, for obvious reasons, we cannot take responsibility for any errors, delays, issues, that may arise with your DD delivery.  In this case, DO NOT CALL THE RESTAURANT, please sort the issue out with DD. 

Should we determine that DD’s service is disruptive and/ or misrepresents our brand, products & services, we will take action to have DD remove our menu from its website.

New "Maha Raja" Beef Curry Noodle Soup

Often called Guay Tiew Kaak in Thailand, which literally translates as "Noodles of Indians", this distinctive, aromatic noodle soup is like none you've ever tasted!  We call it Maha Raja, and as the name suggests, this particular native noodle soup was born in the Southern region of Thailand, where Thai cooking is often influenced by the exotic spices & rich curries of neighboring India, Indonesia and Malaysia.  The curry broth in our Maha Raja is rich in flavor, yet delicate in composition.  The mildly sweet flavors of coconut & peanut are perfectly balanced by the tangy spice of chilies, garlic and lime.  Rabieng's Maha Raja noodle soup is an authentic homage to the original with tender stewed cubed beef, thin rice noodles, sprouts, fried tofu, boiled egg, crispy shallots.  Not many, if any Thai restaurants in America serve Guay Tiew Kaak, so what are you waiting for?!
