Whether you want pad Thai and curry or more adventurous Thai dishes, you'll find them at these Chicago restaurants.
For high-end Thai, Arun's is the place to go. Prix fixe menus are subject to the chef's whims, but you'll leave with a better understanding of Thai food.
Another go-to spot of mine, Opart has lots of super spicy dishes like pad kra praow and peanut sauce lover. If you're not a spice fan, get your curry mild or cool down with Thai custard.
A solid spot for Thai, Rosded does noodles very, very well. also like the papaya salad here.
One of my go-to spots, Aroy has great lunch deals and rama chicken.
A solid little Thai spot on the North Side that's known for basil duck and has lots of super spicy options, like larb and papaya salad.
I like the roasted duck curry as well as the lunch specials, which includes two dishes for under $7.
My favorite place to get take-out from, the menu features lots of Thai specialties and dishes you may have never heard of. It pays to be adventurous here.
Sticky Rice has a Northern Thai menu with dishes like homemade sausage, larb, and mushrooms and pork with chili sauce. Be adventurous and make sure to grab some beer before you arrive since it's BYOB and you'll want to quell the spice.
Cute little spot right under the Granville CTA station. The ginger chicken wonton soup is delicious and warming, while the smoked chili noodles pack a lot of flavor.
A little gem of a spot in Uptown, Thai Pastry does more than just desserts (though it does those well). There are Thai classics, plus a lineup of ice creams and pastries.
The crab fried rice at Andy's Thai Kitchen will make me reconsider ever ordering fried rice elsewhere again.
