I have posted over one thousand blogs on this site and really have been fair to restaurants that we visit.  I call them as I eat them yes, but this one is in a class by itself.  Phuket Thai Restaurant may take the prize as being the WORST meal of this blog.  This place is up there with the Waimea Taco and Fat Boy frozen burger patty which I hated.  The food here is terrible.  To a point it was uneatable and we left most of it on the table when we departed with stomach aches.  Started with the Spring Rolls ($9.25).  The rolls were soaked in oil and that is all you could taste.  This was not fresh oil either.  The oil was old and infused the Spring Rolls with so much oil flavor that everything else was lost.  The lettuce leaves served with the rolls were limp and warm.  The mint was black on the edges.  The Phuket Stuffed Chicken ($12.50) were served burnt.  The outer crust was almost black and thick.  Once inside the stuffing was good but again you tasted an overwhelming oil taste even after putting peanut butter and hot sauce on this.  The Yum Nam Tok or Thai Beef Salad ($10.50) was again uneatable.  The beef had the flavor of a burnt wok.  Really hard core burnt wok.  Nothing tasted fresh.  Our family loves Paht Thai Noodles and we usually finish the dish or bring it home.  The Paht Thai with Chicken ($10.95) here was an exception.  We all took one or two bites and stopped eating it.  Left the entire dish on the table and did not take the leftovers home.  It was bad.  Really bad.  Again there was a lack of freshness.  Lack of flavor too.  One thing we did like here was the Sweet and Sour Fish ($14.95).  This fish was actually good.  Moist and flavorful.  The vegetables however were overcooked and again did not seem fresh.  Our entire family agreed that this was one of the worst meals in ages.  When asked if we would like the food boxed up to take home, we all said "NO".  There is a serious problem here in the kitchen.  Combination of ingredients, freshness and preparation.  The oil definitely needs to be changed for one thing and they need to clean the woks.  Really pisses me off to spend $70 on a meal and have this kind of food served.  This meal has inspired me to create a new recognition on this blog.  Instead of TASTE OF HAWAII FAVORITE, I will now have a TASTE OF HAWAII OPALA which in Hawaiian means garbage.  Click below to see a previous post on Phuket Thai Restaurant.  This will be the last one because I am never going back here.  
This is the first TASTE OF HAWAII OPALA AWARD WINNER (GARBAGE)
