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

Terrible food, poorest possible service. Returned chicken pad Thai (smelly and bad tasting) and Panang chicken which was like chewing old rubber. Never got a refill, had to get up and go to the guy at the entrance to get the check. I don't recommend this place for anything and for sure will not be back.

I can only comment on what I had when I visited this restaurant which sadly wasn't great. Service was good and the restaurant staff were attentive. I ordered the tempura which was described as being lightly battered and a chicken with peanut sauce on broccoli. I'm afraid to say the tempura was near inedible as the batter was very thick,...

If you feel like a Good perfect Thai Food restaurant with kids or friends, this is the place to go in Chicago. Everything we ordered was fresh, well presented and the prices are more than reasonnable. Service is excellent.

If you like Thai, this is worth a try. I love Singapore noodles so much that I took a class to learn how to make it. When I see it on a menu I pretty much can't resist. Stopped in for lunch. It was delicious here. Not the best I've ever had but close to it. The staff were welcoming,... More
