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

Dao Thai is my neighborhood go-to spot for Thai and they are terrific! I have to admit I mainly stop by and get food to go, and their staff are always friendly and quick to provide service. My favorites are: 1) Mussaman Curry - Beef or chicken in traditional homemade massaman thick curry - ask for rice. Sometimes they forget... More

To begin the food in this place was at best average and with a limited variety of thai dishes which they complemented with Chinese and Japanese. We only piked the soup. The noodles where greasy and the service was horrible. Save your money for a better place.

Don't believe in the waiter's comment that "all portions are planned for just one person". I have ordered fried rice and there was food for three men.

We hit upon Dao by accident really as we strolled round the streets near our hotel one evening. We were glad we did as we had probably the best thai meal ever. The service was second to none, the waiting time low and the food was absolutely delicious. Everything was clearly freshly cooked and the flavours and aromas were wonderful.... More
