I just read that Tik's former partner at Ban Thai opened a new restaurant in Kettering recently:

Siam Pad Thai, in the Wilmington Pike location that once housed the China Chef carryout.

Anybody been there yet or know anything good or bad about the offerings?

    It seems like Thai restaurants are proliferating like rabbits of late!

      There's a new or fairly new Indian restraunt in Oxford, Ohio called Rohan India. Haven't been there yet but am planning on going  the end of this month.

        We are considering going to this place:

        Chef C Gourmet

        (513) 745-0666
        Blue Ash
        4924 Hunt Rd
        Cincinnati, OH 45242

        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

        Does anyone here know anything about this restaurant?

        We lunched there this past Thursday, and a slideshow of our visit may be found here:

        This restaurant has been open almost three years and it is owned and operated by a married couple from South Korea.  Young, the husband, served in the South Korean Army and  the U.S. Army as a cook.  It is basically a sandwich shop for lunches and they have a much more extensive menu for dinner.

        We partook of a wonderful flavorful home-made  spicy chili and chicken noodle soup for starters, as shown in the photos.  For entrees we had a very juicy delicious rare hamburger, a tasty tuna wrap with really great cole slaw, a generous scrumptious reuben on rye and chicken fajitas with crispy yummy  french fries.  For dessert we had warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream and triple chocolate mousse cake. (The desserts were not home-made but were very good).

        Drink refills kept coming regularly.  Our waitress Michelle was very nice and accomodating and attentive.  The place filled up fast as you can see from one of the photographs.

          Was at the Dayton Mall this evening, and we noticed that it looked like the lights were out at Cena.  It turns out that they are closed, with a sign posted saying "Sorry.  Closed due to technical difficulties."  (That's a new one.)  Also, there was yellow police tape stretched across the entrance.  This doesn't really affect us either way, as we had only dined there twice a couple of years ago, and had found the food to be only of average quality, and we didn't fancy paying $60+ for a meal for two, yet not having leftovers to take home (but what are you gonna do?  It's a buffet).  Anyway, it'll be interesting to see if it reopens or not.

              Interesting.  Also interesting that we've already planned a lunch at Boulevard Haus for tomorrow (had no idea the owner was also the owner of Cena).  That's too bad (obviously).  I certainly do hope they catch the culprit.  Sounds like an inside job to me.

                  Our lunchbunch member who loves to play with our basic photos of our lunch episodes has been hard at work again and here are his latest two creations fit for this thread:

                  First off is a tweaked photo of the two owners and our sweet waitress with their names:



                  Secondly a display of the food we consumed that day:



                  I think the Black Angus half pound burger and the cole slaw and chili were my personal favorites although the corned beef reuben was very good too.

                    So how was your meal?


                    Didn't end up going, unfortunately.  The wife came down with a cold and didn't feel like heading up to downtown Dayton.  So, we'll try again sometime later, maybe after it's revealed that the owner didn't, in fact, ransack and rob her other establishment so she could collect the insurance money.  Not saying that I believe beyond the shadow of a doubt that's what happened, just saying that it's a little fishy, is all.

                        If by "cooking chicken noodle soup", you meant "running out to Shaddock's to pick up a couple steak hoagies", then yes, I did.

                              Next follows the individual ratings/comments of our group members about the food etc using a rating scale of one to ten:

                              This is my box score: 

                              fried chicken (3 thighs and 1 breast)  5 definitely overcooked - part of the breast's skin was burnt - very small breast - hard to tell by looking which were the  thighs and which was the breast!
                              Fried chicken livers/onions 3 overdone and tasteless
                              onion rings 4 bland and only 3 in number!
                              green beans 4 canned with no real taste and no bacon I saw (we were told they were cooked with bacon)
                              mac and cheese 7 pretty tasty
                              broccoli na did not try
                              cole slaw 8 creamy very good
                              chicken noodle soup 6 not much flavor but decent
                              loaded potato soup 4 no broth ?! not much flavor
                              chili 3 tomato taste overwhelmed everything else - bland
                              chili cheese fries 2 plain awful
                              creamed corn 7 nicely done and very tasty
                              yeast rolls 7
                              coffee 5
                              blackberry cobbler warmed with vanilla ice cream 8 store bought according to our waitress
                              chocolate cream pie 8 home made there
                              service and  server 9
                              ambiance 6
                              music 1 70s mainly
                              overall experience 8


                              they were very nice and accomodating - but the fried chicken was not even close to being exceptional as I have found the fried chicken at the Country Inn in Mt Orab and at Stacey's Buffet in Wilmington to be


                              This is from Vermont native, who has lived in Ohio for over 25 years:
                              fried chicken livers 2, (dry and yucky) fried chicken 6, (Over cooked) although white meat moist, green beans 6,(no bacon  as we were informed) brocolli 6, potato soup 4 not a soup at all like eating au gratin potato, chili 6, sweet ice tea 6 nothing special McDonalds better, chicken soup 4( not that flavorful, ) chili cheese fries not worth the calories 4, blackberry dessert 7, chocolate cream pie 6 didn't get any coleslaw, cream corn 6.  Wish I had gotten the beef liver and onions and had $9.95 added to our bill.  Would have been $70 dollars plus. 
                              Forgot some items
                              The rolls were yeasty and would have been good hot and  lathered in butter but I was too full 7
                              onion rings -7

                              This is from our Cincinnati native daughter:

                                diet coke, no ice, lemon on the side 7.325

                                I am happy to hear that their diet coke is better than average

                                I think many would rate it a 7.327, or perhaps even a 7.328

                                      We lunched at Campbell's Barn in Amelia today:




                                      A full report with photos follows shortly.

                                      I will begin this report with a slide show:




                                      And main view of  images that may be clicked once or twice (in top left corner) to see separately:





                                      Next follows the individual ratings/comments of our group members about the food etc using a rating scale of one to ten:

                                      This is my box score: 

                                      fried chicken (3 thighs and 1 breast)  5 definitely overcooked - part of the breast's skin was burnt - very small breast - hard to tell by looking which were the  thighs and which was the breast!
                                      Fried chicken livers/onions 3 overdone and tasteless
                                      onion rings 4 bland and only 3 in number!
                                      green beans 4 canned with no real taste and no bacon I saw (we were told they were cooked with bacon)
                                      mac and cheese 7 pretty tasty
                                      broccoli na did not try
                                      cole slaw 8 creamy very good
                                      chicken noodle soup 6 not much flavor but decent
                                      loaded potato soup 4 no broth ?! not much flavor
                                      chili 3 tomato taste overwhelmed everything else - bland
                                      chili cheese fries 2 plain awful
                                      creamed corn 7 nicely done and very tasty
                                      yeast rolls 7
                                      coffee 5
                                      blackberry cobbler warmed with vanilla ice cream 8 store bought according to our waitress
                                      chocolate cream pie 8 home made there
                                      service and  server 9
                                      ambiance 6
                                      music 1 70s mainly
                                      overall experience 8


                                      they were very nice and accomodating - but the fried chicken was not even close to being exceptional as I have found the fried chicken at the Country Inn in Mt Orab and at Stacey's Buffet in Wilmington to be


                                      This is from Vermont native, who has lived in Ohio for over 25 years:
                                      fried chicken livers 2, (dry and yucky) fried chicken 6, (Over cooked) although white meat moist, green beans 6,(no bacon  as we were informed) brocolli 6, potato soup 4 not a soup at all like eating au gratin potato, chili 6, sweet ice tea 6 nothing special McDonalds better, chicken soup 4( not that flavorful, ) chili cheese fries not worth the calories 4, blackberry dessert 7, chocolate cream pie 6 didn't get any coleslaw, cream corn 6.  Wish I had gotten the beef liver and onions and had $9.95 added to our bill.  Would have been $70 dollars plus. 
                                      Forgot some items
                                      The rolls were yeasty and would have been good hot and  lathered in butter but I was too full 7
                                      onion rings -7

                                        Another great fried chicken source in southwest Ohio is der Dutchman in Waynesville:

                                        http://www.dhgroup.com/en/wv/wv-restaurant.php

                                        And all their pies are home-made and delicious.

                                        This is an Amish owned restaurant.

                                          they were very nice and accomodating - but the fried chicken was not even close to being exceptional as I have found the fried chicken at the Country Inn in Mt Orab and at Stacey's Buffet in Wilmington to be

                                          fried chicken livers 2, (dry and yucky) fried chicken 6, (Over cooked) although white meat moist, green beans 6,(no bacon  as we were informed) brocolli 6, potato soup 4 not a soup at all like eating au gratin potato, chili 6, sweet ice tea 6 nothing special McDonalds better, chicken soup 4( not that flavorful, ) chili cheese fries not worth the calories 4, blackberry dessert 7, chocolate cream pie 6 didn't get any coleslaw, cream corn 6.  Wish I had gotten the beef liver and onions and had $9.95 added to our bill.  Would have been $70 dollars plus.

                                          The rolls were yeasty and would have been good hot and  lathered in butter but I was too full 7

                                              This past Friday found our weather-weary lunchbunch on a reprise visit to Mi Camino Real Mexican Restaurant in Mt Orab in Brown County - just off the intersection of St Rt 32 and St Rt 68:
                                               


                                              hot and mild salsa with warm tortilla chips



                                              roasted jalapeno peppers and bean dip with chorizo


                                              Mar y Tierra
                                              Filets of charbroiled skirt steak plus sauteed shrimp and then grilled served with rice, beans and guacamole 


                                              Camerones a La Crema
                                              Shrimp and mushrooms prepared in a delicious Parmesan cheese cream sauce


                                              Steak fajita


                                              churros and flan


                                              Lunchbunch minus our greater Dayton member
                                               

                                              The food was well prepared and prompt and very tasty.

                                                Looks good. I like that take on the creamy shrimp. The beans look too smooth. Were they canned?

                                                      My wife and I had lunch the previous day at the Country Inn on St Rt 68 in Mt Orab - we had their  exceptional fried chicken - we learned they are closing on March 1st  and reopening at their new location on March 8th,  just off St Rt 32 just before St Rt 68 - across from Mercy Medical Center  - in  a brand new strip mall - there is  pole sign on St Rt 32 at the intersection of Brooks - Mallott Road;  they are at 290 Brook-Mallott Road, at the farthest  end of the strip center away from 32.

                                                      Here is listing notice for job interviews at the new location,  giving some details about this fine restaurant:

                                                        I must admit on campbell's barn that the last few visits have been subpar. I have noticed the old guy in the kitchen has not been there lately. Not sure if that is why, but the chicken has def been below standard lately.
                                                            not sure if they have changed something or not. Or the cooks they have now just dont care? Food has droped off and I hate to admit it.

                                                          I must admit on campbell's barn that the last few visits have been subpar. I have noticed the old guy in the kitchen has not been there lately. Not sure if that is why, but the chicken has def been below standard lately.
                                                              not sure if they have changed something or not. Or the cooks they have now just dont care? Food has droped off and I hate to admit it.

                                                          They had a young guy in the kitchen when we were there.

                                                          You should try the Country Inn in Mt Orab or on Rt 125 a couple of miles closer to I 275 interchange from Campbell's Barn.  I have been enjoying their wonderful fried chicken for many years.
