Thai Diamond Bar BQ-Closed

Thai Diamond Bar BQ
23415 Golden Springs Dr
Diamond Bar

Thai Diamond Bar BQ has been open since the mid 1980's. They have been there almost as long as Mandarin Taste, a Chinese restaurant in the same complex.

I got the Hot and Sour Shrimp soup, $8.75, Chicken sate, $8.25, and scallops with wine sauce, $9.50.

The Hot and Sour Shrimp soup wasn't as spicy as other's I have had. But it was nice and hot, a perfect dish on a cold night. The shrimp was a bit overcooked and chewy. But overall a good example of hot and sour shrimp soup.

The chicken sate was just OK. A bit rubbery but when dipped in the peanut sauce it was fine. But I thought even though you get eight pieces, it was a bit overpriced.

I did really like the scallops with wine sauce. The scallops are battered and deep fried, then topped with a red wine sauce. The batter was great, I would love this on fish and chips. With the scallops it worked out well. The scallops was nice and fresh and tasty. The red wine sauce was a good topping. Light and sweet but not overpowering. A good dish though a bit pricey for what you get.

Service was good. I was the only on in the restaurant, this is more of a lunch crowd, but the server was nice and attentive.

I would go back to Thai Diamond Bar BQ. I would try some of their other dishes but happy with the scallops and hot and sour shrimp soup that I ordered.
