My best friend and I are, to put it kindly, creatures of habit.. and Titaya's we doooo habituate.
There's plenty of parking and never a wait. The lighting is dim-ish, but not distractingly so. The prices are reasonable. The servers are smiley, attentive, and un-phased by special orders. The food is awesome-delicious, and it's FAST -- perfectly timed, even! Last week our final bites of egg roll were synchronized with the delivery of our main course.. hey, we're easy to please.
The portions are perfect for sharing, and we always order predictably:
- Thai Iced Tea
- Crispy Egg Rolls, Chicken
- Thai Fried Rice, Chicken - no onion, add broccoli, level 1 spicy
Titaya's cuts the egg rolls in half, so even though we each only get one, it feeeels like two. And, there's plenty of fried rice to feed two people, or one person twice (it's equally excellent left over). Also, don't disregard the garnish! We always squeeze the lime over the rice, and recently I've begun mixing the cilantro into my half. YUM!
My family orders Chinese Food for pickup from Hunan Lion at least once a month. It's ready in about 20 minutes, so by the time you hang up the phone, put on your shoes, and drive over, you can just pay and go.
But, eating there is nice, too. There's never a wait, it's dark and quiet, and there's a nice fishtank to watch if the conversation gets boring.
I highly recommend the Veggie Fried Rice (and it's excellent left over)!
