Take a seat at a patio-side table at 32 Marina Street Kitchen and you will have a pristine view of the waterfront. So, if the food was good, it would make a great spot for a date. But, itâ€™s not. The restaurant claims to serve Thai-fusion cuisine but the menu isnâ€™t fusion food so much as it is an attempt to hit all bases.Even the Thai offerings have no hint of authenticity, instead tasting mostly of ready-made marinades you could buy in a supermarket. A traditional pad Thai is nauseously sweet, and a papaya salad tastes of tongue-tenderising spice and little more. To make matters worse, the service, while exceptionally friendly, is exceedingly slow. An hour can pass before your mains are delivered and so youâ€™re sure to be too chagrined with the thought of wasting time or calories on dessert.We canâ€™t help but mourn the Dusitâ€™s wasted opportunity. With serene waterside views, the venue has a great spot for a low-key romantic hideaway, and with its Thai origin it has the credentials to pull off an authentic Thai experience. But it doesnâ€™t, and with the handful of other genuinely delicious (and reasonableThai restaurants in town thereâ€™s little incentive to visit this Dusit eatery.
