A popular Washington eatery has earned the dubious honor of being one of the most hated on Yelp.
A review for Bangladeshan, a Thai restaurant in Virginia, has garnered more than 2,000 negative reviews since it opened in late May, with nearly half of them accusing the restaurant of being “a cult.”
Some of the reviews include: “If you don’t believe in the food you don,t eat it” and “The atmosphere is nothing but a mess.
This is a cult restaurant, so get out.”
Other reviews include “not a good restaurant for foodies,” “not an authentic Thai restaurant,” “dumb restaurant” and more.
The reviews for Banglshan, however, are not that bad.
The restaurant has been open for five years and has won the “Best Thai” accolade from the Thai Food Association of America.
But that hasn’t stopped many people from giving the restaurant a low rating on Yelp, with many of the negative reviews pointing to the “bizarre” food, the low price and the fact that “no one really knows how to make a good meal.”
The restaurant was recently featured in a segment on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which highlighted how restaurants that serve Thai food can be difficult to find, but also that the restaurant has an amazing reputation.
