Haha Ice Queen! No surprise. Hopefully they shut that place down.

Thanks for posting this. I'm a regular Friendly Thai Leslieville customer. The last 4-5 weeks, the dish I regularly order has not been good. I assumed the cook was replaced with a loser, but the problems are more disturbing. 9 infractions? WTF are we eating when we order from that dump??

I went to Lalibella a few weeks ago and had the rudest service, The waitress overcharged me and then tried to convince me that I had ordered another dish.

There is certainly a lot to know about this subject. I like all
the points you made.

Each of the Friendly Thai locations are ALWAYS on DineSafe for some kind of infraction or another. When I was at the one on Yonge, south of Bloor, a mouse ran across the floor and over my boyfriend's foot. Reason enough to never eat at another Friendly Thai again - whether they're franchises or not.

BlogTO: I want to eat at the Kelesy's at 1972 Eglinton but I can't figure out if it's the east or west location, so I'll pass and grab a tall can at Jilly's instead.

Thanks for the tip!
