Nice surprise

I was very surprised by the atmosphere! Cloth table cloths, not the order at the counter kind of place I was expecting. Great servers who are familiar with the menu and helpful with describing the dishes. The food is prepared fresh, is hot and looks appealing. The rice is in a nice heart... read more

I love this restaurant. It is my go to place for lunch and dinner. First of all, you don't have to pay for parking like you do downtown, especially during lunch. Mostly, though, I love My Thai because the food is consistently good. I've never had a bad meal and I eat there a lot. My favorite dishes are drunken... More

This restaurant has some of the best Thai food I've ever tasted, and I've been to many, many Thai restaurants over the years. Look to see if the curry noodles are offered as one of the specials, as they are amazingly good. The sushi is fresh, delicious, and artfully prepared.

For a very reasonably-priced Thai meal: this place is wonderful. The deck is a nice place to sit on a sunny day. Service was mediocre.

First of all, if you read the reviews for this place, the only negative reviews are actually for the 4th street location, not the West side location. The West 3rd street location is outstanding. This is my go to place for Thai, hands down. I have eaten at the restaurant and gotten take out countless times. The green curry is... More

Decided to reward ourselves after the afternoon movie. Pleasant waitress brought our ice waters and soon after our glasses of wine. Generous wine pour! An excellent start.. All three of our mains were judged very good. Portions are generous so now we have enough for lunch today.

I have only been to the 4th street location one time and although they are owned by the same folks as the West side location, the experience is MILES and away different, depending upon the location you choose. The 4th street is of course more convenient, a short walk from everything you need in Bloomington with the same prices and... More

I visited the downtown location yesterday for my first time. I ordered the orange chicken which was not that great. The sauce was runny and thin. When I got my check I left $25 (all I had was a 20 and a 5) on my $18 bill expecting him to bring me change, since I wasn't planning on leaving a... More

Great Pad Thai, just remember to ask for fish sauce and lime. The Penang is excellent. The service seems good and the wait is short.
