Must-try Thai – Best Thai food in University City! Shrimp Pad Thai and spring rolls are a safe bet. The curry chicken dishes are also quite good. And believe it or not, Pina Coladas here are also really good (they even put a little paper umbrella in the glass. classy! ;) ) Very nice atmosphere (sit in the greenhouse-style back room on sunny days), fast service and excellent food.
Good but kind of pricey – Pattaya has a surprisingly nice interior, quick service, and consistently good food. The duck and seafood noodle dishes are recommended, but the desserts aren't that great. The only downside is the prices aren't bad but not cheap- otherwise we would go more often.
Best Pad Thai in town – I highly recommended the place. The food was quick and excellent especially Pad Thai. It was the best Pad Thai I?ve ever try around University City neighborhood. The service was very good. The ambience was wonderful. Try the sun room in the back but don?t forget to make a reservation and request for it.
Like Nan, with a Bar! – Basically, the food is similar to Nan, which is next door, but this one has a bar! Pretty place, maybe a more expanded menu, very flavorful food. Can get busy at lunchtime so make a reservations. Very enjoyable overall and good food!
Thai food that, for better or worse, goes beyond the traditional. – In Short
The expansive restaurant stretches backward from a colorful bar area to an enclosed sunroom with indoor trees strung with lights. Pattaya fills up with U Penn students sipping brightly colored spiced iced tea and house cocktails. Authentic Thai dishes; clay pot stews, mix and match curries and noodles, with a nod both to continental (chicken marsala and goat cheese salad) and eclectic (alligator stir-fry).
small portion, high price, below average food... – The place look magnificent, but looks can be deceiving. The food was not so good. We ordered the chicken in red tai curry sauce, and it tasted fine-not the best (i was hungry). Then we had the tuna. I can tell it was frozen, and it was cooked way overdone. We didn't really enjoyed the food. I don't mind how expensive or inexpensive the dishes cost, but give me a BIGGER PORTION!
Great Authentic Thai Dinner – We had a great dinner here! The green curry was just like the curry our Thai exchange student's mom makes at home! The beef satay, angel shrimp, shrimp pad thai, chicken pad king, crab puff appetizer and mussels were all delicious!
The only thing we missed was having Thai desserts and our "non-Thai eating" american daughter would have liked chicken fingers or a hamburger, but was able to suffice with plain shrimp.
We will definitely be back to Pattaya Grill again soon!
A good West Philly choice – Show up early before this place gets packed by Penn students! Service can be spotty when it gets too crowded, but I have always enjoyed the food here. Standard Thai curries and noodle dishes are well-prepared, and the decadent desserts are a tasty way to finish the experience. They make pretty good drinks as well.
This is probably my first pick for a place to eat before a movie at The Bridge.
best shrimp pad thai around – I have only been twice and had take-out several times, but either way, the food was delicious. Both the chicken and the shrimp pad thai are fantastic and the that iced tea is good, too. When I ate in the restaurant, it was really crowded, and therefore service was painfully slow. The times I ordered take-out, it was prompt: ready when I got there and still quite hot. Overall, the food is great.
