Good Deal! – Every time we've been there for dinner or take out we've had really good fresh food at great prices, and the service is excellent. They're so genuinely nice... a real pleasure.
Disappointing, and expensive – We've been there twice. Ambiente and service are nice, but the food is mediocre. Most flavorless Red Curry I have ever had; my rice was actually a lump of mush (though they fixed that on request). The Pineapple Fried Rice tasted off.
The servings were not generous, either, so $9 for a main course made it pretty pricey. There are much better options nearby: Lai Thai and Sri Siam
NEVER MIND – What a disappointment! After reading the review on City Search, my college roommate and I decided to go there' rather than Lulu's in Evanston. The food was bland and the chicken tasted processed. When I asked for the basil beef to be medium hot, the owner came to the table and asked if I liked hot food. I took this to be a good sign, and replied that I did like it spicy, but not terribly hot. I didn't realize that it meant no taste at all.
The most authentic thai restaurant!! – I absolutely love this thai restaurant. I have been to many thai restaurants for thai food is my favorite cuisine, and I have to say that this restaurant is very similar to the thai food I had when I was in Thailand. It is so authentic in almost everyway, from its amazing appetizer (you have to try the fresh spring roll and their signature appetizer that has the shredded coconut pieces, dried shrimp, lemon, and ginger on a single leaf. The main entree, pad se ewe, is so amazing and just the perfect amount of seasoning. The tom yum soup is so delicious and just a touch of spiciness depending on how you like it. The decor is very charming, traditional, and super clean. The owner and servers are so polite and nice and very attentive, too. This restaurant is truly a gem and a must for the foodies who are looking for authentic thai food.
