Every single thing about my food was bad. Terrible service, regular food. I had it, but if I could have asked for my money back, I would have. It does have a fair atmosphere.

Everytime we come here we really enjoy the food. The pad thai noodles with chicken and shrimp are always my favorite. If you come here in the summer make sure you sit outside. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The food at the restaurant was good. Especially the Tom Yum soup. We went in on a cloudy day and it started raining right after, as we were having dinner. We walked in just before closing time and we served very quickly. After dinner, as we were getting out, we noticed that it was raining cats and dogs. We waited... More

The relaxed ambiance was warm, but as our experience evolved I was dissapointed with the overall service. Call it a fluke? Diners appeared content however our servers were indifferent. The soup (med spice chix lemongrass with free wood mushrooms and chix) was mediocre, and #30 was horribly bitter (broccoli) with an OK sauce. My daughter and I could not muster... More

Dao has a wonderful atmosphere, good food and excellent service. Enjoyed the Vietnamese soft rolls, spring rolls and spicy red curry. All were very good - and nicely priced.

Great atmosphere and great service. It was late so we ordered mostly appetizers but the Miso Soup was amazing! The food was fresh, hot and fast! Prices were much lower than I expected for the quality of the food. Whenever I visit downtown Chicago I have to eat at DAO.

Had lunch her today. No lunch specials, but solid well prepared reasonably priced Thai food. The place was empty (but it was lunchtime on a Saturday). The decor was pleasant (tables or floor mats) and the prices were reasonable. I'd come back (if in the hood), but not go out of my way to get here.

Going as a party of four, this place for dinner was really bad. Should be one star but place was clean and close. Food was greasy, curry was not real curry and no good, yellow curry had nothing but chicken and yellow sauce, the apps were terrible too. Service was fair at best. Would never go back.
