Great food. Service was marginal

We've been to Alt Thai before and enjoyed it. Love the food and atmosphere. Great jazz music playing in background. It's an intimate (smaller) place. Everyone enjoyed their food, but I must say that one of our orders was incorrectly placed. Shrimp instead of chicken Pad Thai. I understand... read more

en going to this restaurant since they opened. It hs always been well prepared and fairly priced. The presentation is exceptional and the menu quite varied. Depending on the volume of business service can suffer.

We ordered the crab Rangoon for starters and it was crispy and delicious. Entrees we ordered (Pad Thai and Green Curry) came exactly as we ordered and were fabulous. Portions were adequate, but not generous. Warning: when they say spicy, they mean SPICY.

For under $10, you get a cup of soup, an egg roll or pot sticker, and an entree. They have two soup choices, a cucumber salad option, and probably 5-10 lunch options. You choose your protein to add to the combined vegetables with some great spices, and a nice helping of rice. You can replace the white rice with brown... More

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
