LOL..funny story about Royal Thai..I was chased out of there by the owner once..
It was me..my boss and one of the doctors that worked with us...Never ever had we experienced
such horrible service..maybe it was because I'm black, the Dr. was black, and my boss was jewish..
(who knows?) but they made us wait forever for our food while serving people that came in way after
us..so after we ate and drank (a whole bunch) we didn't leave a tip..The owner ran outside after
us and told us never to come back..lol..It pays to be nice to people

That's about 2 miles from where I grew up.

I still remember the big red barn that was on the opposite side of Red Hill.

Do you run into a lot of discrimination? How did they know your boss was a Jew?

I've been to both many times...each is patronized by a wide variety of ethnic peoples, but I have never seen anything like what you report.

No not at all..I'm not really sure if it was discrimination ...maybe they were just lame and didn't notice
us..My boss looked it..he's from Isreal..
