Love it

Seriously, I love this place! The food is incredible good and always very very tasty. Also the portions are perfect (sometimes a little too big). Even my boyfriend who hates Asian food loves this place because it sticks out from the crowd of Asian low quality food.

We are here on a Friday night and hadn't made a reservation, the restaurant was busy but they managed to get us a table. We had the lettuce wraps to start which are served with shrimps, the shrimps weren't as I imagined they would be so I think in future I would prefer to have them with another meat. The... More

AltThai is located in downtown Arlington Hts, IL. I love Thai food and have been in Thai restaurants all over this country and rate this the best. In addition , it's really cheap as to price. I live the summer/fall in Arlington Hts and we get there every week. The food is fresh, presented nicely, and a very nice, clean... More

If you're out for a night, catching a movie, doing some shopping or just enjoy a night with friends, you should definitely consider altThai as part of your plans. Even though the number of people who wanted to get in resulted in a slight waiting time, the staff was thoughtful, considerate and attentive. The presentation of each dish suggested that... More

We recently visited altThai, one of our favorite restaurants in Arlington Heights. We decided to "branch out" and order something different from our typical selections. We found the wait staff particularly attentive and very knowledgeable of their menu. She provided us with extensive details about their various curries, a favorite for my husband. She also recommended Spicy Seafood Noodles dish... More

Friendly staff and good service. We had the vegetarian pot stickers that were pretty oily with not much filling The food was a little salty. Portion size was good but average in taste

We went out with a group of friends recently, and some of them had been to altThai before. They made reservations ahead of time, since a group of 8 people on a Saturday night would otherwise be hard to accommodate. The restaurant has a clean, albeit plain decor, and the night we were there it seemed like their carry-out counter... More

AltThai is excellent because they use very fresh ingredients, and the dishes are very well thought-out. Because of this, the flavors of their dishes really shine. My personal favorite is their Ginger Dish, however many locals have different favorites. You can choose between chicken, shrimp, tofu, beef, pork, or extra vegetables, as you can with many of their dishes. What... More

We stopped at this restaurant for lunch. It was not busy, so the service was very fast. The food was great too. I always get the same thing at Thai restaurants, so the dish met my standards and expectations. I would highly recommend, if you are in the area.

This is a small restaurant in Arlington Heights IL close to the Metra Station. The food is good and their menu extensive. They have an average wine selection with low cost bottles, half bottles and glasses available. There is no sake but they do have plum wine. My husband and I would meet there for lunch at least once a... More
