Excellent Pad Thai

We thoroughly enjoyed the Tofu and the Chicken Pad Thai, and my daughter loved the Green Curry. The Crab Rangoon were also very tasty, although I would have liked to have sweet and sour sauce without the chili's

A local favorite. The Pad See Ew is excellent at 2-3 spiciness. The wait staff is always helpful and friendly. They have a large menu and everything looks great. Can't go wrong at this restaurant.

We went here for Valentines day and had a nice meal. The menu is varied and the portions were large. The wait staff seemed a bit overwhelmed while we were there although the restaurant was busy but not full. I was very disappointed that they do not serve wine, the only alcoholic drinks they serve are two thai beers. If... More

I went here with a friend for lunch a couple weeks ago. I decided to try the red curry. For $10 you get a large portion of curry with seasonal vegetables and a side of rice. The service was good and there is free wi-fi, just ask the waiter for the password. If you're in the area, try it. It's... More

This restaurant is off a busy roadway (Kirkwood) and set back from the street so it can be missed when driving by. This make the location more intimate and the food is definitely worth the discovery. I go here for Pad See Ew because it is the best in town. i have only heard good things from friends who have... More

We had never eaten at a Thai restaurant. We had many questions which were answered quickly. The servers were most helpful and understanding. The food was wonderful. The serving was more than adequate. We will go back to Esan Thai.

Esan Thai was recommended by a colleague from the area. I had the Thai seasoned grilled chicken which comes with vegetables. All very fresh and we'll prepared. The portion were very generous and very reasonably priced. The menu was extensive, so when in Bloomington and looking for an alternative, give it a try.

We have been eating here for years and have never had a bad meal. We haven't had everything on their menu but everything we have had has been delicious. We especially like their spring rolls and the pla muek oob. Service is sometimes a bit slow when they are busy but the food is always worth waiting for.

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.
