Regarding what is served while you wait for your meal. It seems that fried wonton skins with a sweet and sour dipping sauce is provided. I went to this one place for the first time the other day and they also provided a hot mustard for dipping with the S&Sour.
That was smart, as you now need to have a second beverage before the meal arrives.
At Thai restaurants, I like it when they provide shrimp chips with a sauce that I think is ketjip manis. That is what I had while living in California. Here in CT., they will also use wontons and a S&S dip.
