I went today Friday AUG/15/2014 at mid-day for lunch with a group of friends and my experience was horrible. The food was great but the behaviour of the asian women (owner???) was completally unrespecful with her employee (waitress) as same as with another client. This kind of behaviour is not acceptable in AMERICA and for sure I will not return... More

Ordered a bowl of Tom Yum with a 4 star of spiciness plus a bowl of Jasmine rice. Both were great and I will definitely go back again for some other Thai foods.

Esan Thai is consistently amazingly good and always fresh, with just the right level of heat for your palate. Service is always attentive and food arrives quickly and cooked to order. We would eat here every day if we could!

I am a Sri Lankan so I alwaya love Thai food which is much similar to Sri Lankan food. Esan Thai has a good variety of Thai food and I really love few of the items from their dinner menu. I think it's more personnel preference but overall the food is great. The portion they serve is big enough for... More

To take full advantage of the menu at a great price, go for lunch. But, if you cant, the dinner menu has the same options at the same portions, but only a couple of dollars more. Truly authentic taste with a wide variety of options.

I did my grad. school at Indiana Univ. in Bloomington, and went to Esan Thai many times. Two weeks ago, I went back to Bloomington to marry my wife who is a grad. student at IU. We had our ceremony at 2 pm and the reception at around 3pm. Then we went to Esan Thai for dinner at about 8pm... More

I was hankering for a good green chicken curry and this place provided. The portion was huge enough to take half with me for dinner. First time I tried the Thai iced tea and it was fabulous.

I've lived in Bloomington for over 10 years and have seen restaurants come and go. However, Esan Thai offers what I consider to be the best Thai restaurant in Bloomington and never disappoints. I like my food spicy and the stars don't lie!

The food here is great, but you shouldn't go in expecting regular restaurant service. Your first clue would be the notes on each table that explain that the food is prepared when ordered and that it will take time. It's also says that the orders may not be altered in the least bit in order to preserve the foods integrity.... More
