Called an order in at 6:20 on a Sunday. Called back at 7:30. Response:"Food on its way". The food never showed up. 9:50 was woken up by phone calls(5) from someone from Song asking for money. He was a bit difficult to understand. I called and eventually was passed on to the owner who was unapologetic and called me nutty! No food, woken up: not nice. Food is decent but will never be calling again.
That Hideous Hostess
By MREJEAN on 2/17/2013
Im sick of it and I can't be quiet another second! There is a gargoyle at the gate of Song in Park Slope. The so called hostess has been nasty to me for the last time. My family enjoyed going there..my now 15 yr old autistic daughter found it very exciting and loved the food;so I decided to book a small early evening birthday gathering for her there with with no more than 10 guests and asked if she might arrange it for us. She flatly said no...I said it helps kids with disabilities if a table can be available it is literally hard for them to wait too long. NO! No smile, no apology, no manners, no people skills. Next, I recently had the audacity to return with my nephew as walk - ins at 5:45pm on a Sunday. Tables were full ; when asked how long it would be with NO list as of yet, she replied "40 minutes, at least" when I looked at the dining room 2 tables were paying their bills. I said that I would take one of those tables, and waited until she grudgingly had one made up> a table in 7 or 8 minutes. I guess she wasn't watching the floor. I managed a local restaurant that is still successful in Park Slope;I'D FIRE HER IN A MINUTE!! She is not suited for any front of the house jobs, maybe she could clean the bathrooms instead.
Love the food, when did it get so expensive?
By SirEatALot on 3/26/2012
I've been loving Joya & now Song for years now. Ordered tonight (3/26/12)- got Thai Summer Roll and chicken Pad Thai, listed at $2.95 and $6.95, respectively, on the Menupages menu. Delivery guy shows up and the ticket is $13.55, or about $2.70 (25%) more than it should have been. So either Menupages is out of date or they fleeced me. Either way, there are plenty of other great Thai places in the neighborhood.

The food is pretty good and the atmosphere is cool, but very unfriendly staff. The seating hostess is the most unfriendly of all, which is not the person I think the owners would want to have giving customers their first impression of the place. The servers are also never over firiendly, there are a couple who are very pleasant, but one of two equally as not. If the owners would address this, I would go back. But with all the choices in Park Slope, I don't need to spend my money at a place I don't feel welcome. Also, when I was there each time the music was way too loud.
Burned Steak Special for $12
By song on 6/5/2009
I was a regular customer and ordered a pick up once in a while. This time I had to return their burned steak because it was burned and the meat was black like coal. A lady was not nice to me and refused to call the manager saying "I am the manager here". She said "Don't call here anymore and don't come again if you don't like our food". I insisted that she let me speak to a chef and forced him to cook another steak in exchange for the burned one. It was not so easy. I spent about an hour of my time. I'll never go back to that place.

The best Thai food I ever tasted...
Don't believe the hype.
By Reiner28 on 1/4/2008
I needed to find out what this was all about since I do not live too far from this restaurant. Firstly, it is overrated. It is a hangout for the Bay Ridge crowd that wants a change. The wait is way too long and the staff, in particular, the host had a horrible attitude, telling us to "deal with the wait". Not a place you want to take a date or a friend to. If your looking for a good Thai place, think outside the box and look for somewhere different.
Better than average food - Great price!

My fiance and I had dinner there last night. Walked in sort of early (7pm), had a drink at the bar, and were seated in about 15 minutes. We split the vegetable dumplings (which were tasty) and had our own appetizers. Mine was the Gai Kraprow and she had the Kang Kyo Whan Nuur. Both were perfect portions and came out piping hot (on a very cold night!). We don't consider ourselves Thai connoisseurs, but we thought everything was very good - and our food bill was only $20! Definitely going back as we just moved in around the corner.
