Good food reasonably priced

I had dinner here and was pleasantly surprised with the low cost and good food. I really expected to pay more in downtown Chicago. Nice place with good service and good food in a trendy setting. Well worth a try.

Dao is a very nice Thai restaurant. Food is very good, price is right and they are always consistent. I enjoy the Basil Chicken, Yellow Chicken Curry, Tom Ka Kai Soup and Tom Yum Noodle Soup, and their cucumber salad is very good, too. You cannot go wrong here.

This location is authentic and all the decor makes you feel as if your in Thailand. the food was very quick and our drinks came right away. Service was very quick, and pleasant. Basic menu, what you would see at any Thai restaurant. I would go back my meal was delicious.

Ate here for dinner while in Chicago. Atmosphere and decor was nice- booths, tables, or floor cushion seats (which my kids loved). The prices are low and the food is great. Better quality than similar priced take out. We ate peanut chicken and broccoli, shrimp won tons and pad thai. All dishes were delicious. This is not a 5 star... More

We didn't feel like going too far last night so we settled on Dao Thai. Over the years we have had some pretty mediocre meals here but they have made some major improvements in the last two years. The food has remained consistently good and we now eat there on a pretty regular (quarterly) basis. We have some go to... More

My sister & I were looking for good Thai food! Searched this place out. The reviews do not lie! Huge portions, delicious, quick service. The staff was genuinely friendly & checked on us appropriately. Will visit again when in town!

My husband and I ate an early dinner here and liked the food. It wasn't spectacular, but it was good - just the right amount of spice. Our server was very nice and efficient.

Our family was exploring downtown Chicago on New Years Eve day. We visited Eataly and hoped to have lunch there. Wow was that place crowded, and although the food looked appetizing, I don't think eating in that large of a crowd would be enjoyable. We walked down and hoped to try the Purple Pig, but we were discouraged by the... More

They have tables that look like you're on pillows on the floor except they're built up so you're not really. :) The food was outstanding and great prices too
