Best fried rice ever but make sure you have enough water

Being a big fan of Thai cuisine, we were looking for a nice Thai restaurant to stop for lunch. Did not take long and we found Dao. There were not a lot of people in this restaurant which is usually not a very good sign but in the end we figured out we were a little early. The restaurant has... read more

We had a very enjoyable dinner with fast/friendly service. The food had a very fresh quality to it that all of us enjoyed. The Dao Thai Restaurant is on par with other very good Thai restaurants. Give the Thai iced tea a try for a unique beverage experience. One of us loved it and one didn't. Oh well, to each... More

Service was great, very attentive and nice. Meal not so great, rice noodles were a mixture of old and over cooked and a lot of broken pieces, salad was a little too crunchy with great spicy flavor. I've never seen food come out soooo fast, didn't sit well with me. I don't see me giving them another try when I... More

Don't know where they found the chef, but this was the worst thai I have ever tried. Had 3 starters. Pre-made overcooked and bad taste. A discrace to thai cooking!

We were headed to another restaurant on a cold summer night recently that we decided against because it was outdoors and we were cold, so we tucked in here just to get warm. We had not heard of this place and didn't check tripadvisor because Thai Food. We felt really lucky to have stumbled in here. The decor was charming,... More

The crab rangoon were crispy and tasty, and arrived practically the moment it was ordered. The entrees came too soon, and I had massamun which did not have the delicate flavor that I was used to.

Throughout our meal the waiting staff were lovely and very helpful. However, when it came to paying the bill we were informed by the waiter that the tip we... More

Tucked away in a building in the middle of the street. Big long room. Food in my opinion was average. Didn't knock my socks off.... Wasnt busy at all when we showed up but was busier when we were done...

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
