Fresh, Perfectly-Prepared, Inexpensive Thai – OK, get over the fact that there's a paper menu (read: to-go menu tri-fold), paper napkins and brusque service. The food is why you came anyway, right? Wow. Best Lad Nar I've ever had. I ordered with chicken. The sauce was perfectly seasoned. The cute cucumber salad beforehand was small but fresh and delicious, also. The lunch special was only $6.95 (cucumber salad and Lad Nar w/o meat). The menu said lunch special comes with appetizer or soup, but server said, "No, today cucumber salad only". That certainly didn't ruin my lunch. I'll definitely be back to try other items...
Great Food – Best pad thai I've tasted. A little on the expensive side but the taste is worth it. Parking within close proximity is limited but can easily find one.
Friendly , Nice Ambience, Great Foods :) – A small Thai Restaurnat in Park Ridge and the new hot spot.
We usually come here at lunch and it always crowded as the usual. We had party many times. Love Wonton Soup and Scallop Garlic, It was really yummy!! even the Thai ice tea the taste was very good. They have many choices & very healthy . I like the idea for the decoration of this rests it look
warm and light. anyway I will come back again.
Don't Waste Your Time Here – This place is a huge disappointment. As the previous reviewer noted, the people who run this place are way too obsessed with who is sitting where. If they were equally obsessed wioth the food quality their customers would be much more appreciative. They obviously operate an assembly line operation on the back...kind of a McDonalds approach to serving Thai Food. My lunc there was pretty cold and pretty tasteless. Once was enough for me.
Horrible Experience – Went to this restaurant with 2 co-workers, and were seated at a table for 2, with an extra chair on the side. There was an open table directly next to us, but they refused to let us push both together so they could accommodate more guests. Later, there was 1 4-person table available and a party of 2 came in. They were told to wait a few minutes, as they expected a table for 2 to open up shortly and pointed it out. After several minutes of waiting, the party of 2 left. At least 10 minutes later, the table they told the customers would open up finally did, and the table for 4 was never filled.
During all this, we ordered our food, and my dish was delivered first, along with another table's. A woman at that table looked over a few minutes later and asked if one of us ordered the green curry, which we did, and gave us the plate that was sitting on their table, since they delivered it to the wrong place. Several minutes later, and after 2 of us were about halfway done, our 3rd patron received his dish.
This restaurant is a disaster, and the current structure cannot last. The only reason I gave a rating of 3 is due to the food being a slight bit above average.
Will never visit again.
