Authentic Thai - VERY HOT, lots of water needed – Family of five decided to try this place in crowded Elmhurst on a warm spring Sunday evening. On-street parking. Place small w/about 8 to 10 tables but waitresses were very helpful and friendly. Try the very reasonable $2 Thai ice tea or coffee w/milk but save when U savor the main entrees which are hot with the chili to very hot. Nothing less mild. We had a "today's special" whole deep fried sea bass covered in an EXCELLENT lime, mango, papaya sauce where U eat the bones and everything; a seafood in papaya salad; a very tasty crispy pork in shih curry w/green beans dish item E13 in the menu; a jungle curry soup dish (AVOID- searing with a red chilis imbued broth); a chicken in soup dish (AVOID for the same reason); and a fried catfish dish (a so-so overcooked and dry with bones). The dinner specials were posted next to the kitchen door - have patient waitress translate from Thai to English. A "must try" but more expensive than the standard fare. Cash only - total bill under $100 but add tax and tip.
