Kunya Siam Thai Restaurant

Reviewed By patnoelle - Princeton

We were in the area and were in the mood for oriental food so we Yelped and this restaurant came up; we are quite happy!!! The ambience, décor and service were enjoyable, welcoming and friendly. The waitress was very personable and offered her recommendations; my meal started with fried pork as an appetizer which turned out to be okay... not exactly what I had envisioned but tasty nerveless, it consisted of strips of pork meat which had been fried not to a crisp but to the point that they were a bit chewy; the side sauce was spiced just right! As an entrée, I had the Jumbo Shrimp in Garlic which came with Mali Rice and Mixed Vegetables, the sauce with the right amount of garlic and spices and the perfectly cooked shrimp and vegetables went so well!! This dish won me over!!! My husband and I shared the Thai Ice Tea and the Green Tea Fried Ice Cream. Delicious meal!! Restaurant absolutely on our list of repeats!!

The Flaky Tart

Reviewed By rebeccacharlene - Commerce, Texas

This is a great place to pop in for a cup of hot chocolate or IIrish coffee and something sweet to get you through the afternoon. The staff is friendly and efficient. They also serve sandwiches until late afternoon. I recently learned that they will soon be offering oven-fired pizza and beer in the evenings. Be sure to try the apple tart or gluten free chocolate cake. Both are rich and beautifully presented.

Salt Creek Grille - Rumson

Reviewed By kazu79 - New York City, New York

5:30 reservations. Got seated at 6:15. Understandably holiday I get it. Had a Sangria at the bar where service was great.
Finally seated and was then informed our Turkey selection on a fixed menu was white meat only no dark meat left. Having been here twice before on such an occasion one time I got an entire leg. The next second servings. This time around no second servings. Could barely get the server to get us a round of drinks. And when desert came out I substituted my pie for a scoop of ice cream and was Charged for an ala mode? When asked well then I’ll bring the pie home I was told I substituted. Was not going to argue over $3.00 not it’s the point.
When I got home and reviewed my cc charge I was charged three adults. I have two children one 11 and one 12. Yes he 12 looks like he is going on 18 but informed the service of this prior. My fault for not “reading” the entire bill I guess I Focused in the ice cream no pie charge lol. Well the Turkey was like a salt cured ham. Who could mess up veggies and potatoes they were good. But the lack of service. Seeing everyone else get pie and their ice cream and offered coffee which we were not and the lack of a dark meat selection just ended out visits to this establishment and the surprise adult charge. $180 bucks plus the tip and oh forgot the over cooked bacon scalloped wrap shrimp that my son wouldn’t even eat I forgot to mention. This is was one star visit. Our server we do not know but she signed the back of our receipt with and h or c. Older woman who apparently was just going through the motions and basically didn’t give two cents. Would have walked out as soon as we were informed of the lack of selection. But on a holiday evening we decided to go a different route and was very disappointed. Two extra stars added for our previous visit and the bar tenders and hostess who were nice and accommodating as well as the ambience. Other than that take a pass. Sorry.

The cuisine is delicious! Best salmon with wild rice and sautéed mushrooms that I have ever enjoyed! The butternut squash soup was heavenly! My friend's mushroom soup was amazing! And the blueberry crumb cake dessert was "to die for"! The service and the ambience are impeccable we will definitely return very soon!

Our first time dining here. Was seated at the time of our reservation at a very nice table for 2. Food was excellent and huge portions. Prompt and attentive service.Our servers Trevor and John were exceptional, pleasant and friendly. On top of anything needed. Only drawback is the dining area is small and loud, but the food and service lets you overlook this. The owner and chef Ronnie definitely appreciates your business. Will definitely make this a regular stop for us.

Reviewed By Rob K - Highlands, New Jersey

We had the Fall tasting menu, ordering one of both dishes so we could both have a taste of each dish. All the dishes were beautifully presented and by and large very tasty. (not hugely impressed by the vaunted Pumpkin Soup--it seemed bland.) The ambiance is very pleasant and the staff provided attentive service. Nahum was excellent and even the young lady who swept away the crumbs from the tablecloth was personable. If you want to impress a date or make a loved feel cherished, this is the place to go in the Red Bank area.

Really cute, centrally located ice cream shop with plenty of tables to sit, inside and out. Ice Cream was fresh and delicious with a lot of different choices. The shop has a warm and friendly feel to it and the servers were excellent! Try the Brownie Sundae or an extra thick milkshake!
