Three of us ate here this evening and were delightfully pleased. The server (Jenna) could not do more for us. She is a very pleasant young lady who, despite having 8 tables to serve, was very kind, helpful, efficient and willing to answer all questions. She took a lot of time with us, explaining the various meal options, and offering... More

The Thai food as Esaan is amazing. The owners make everything fresh with fresh ingredients and everything we have had is always amazing. They also make gelato. Some of my favorites are the Spicy Thai Basil and the red and green curry dishes. The almond and hazelnut gelato is AMAZING

Have had several lunches and recently, dinner at Esaan and overall, I thought it was very good. I don't know a whole lot about Thai food and I suspect this really isn't comparable to Thai places in larger cities. However, simple stir-fries, and curries with fresh, well-cooked ingredients have been very enjoyable on our visits. There is no liquor license... More

Even though it is not really Thai food it could at least be good food. It was not. In fact it was so bad I at popcorn and chocolate back in our hotel room instead. The staff have a reputation for being rude but all I saw was poorly organized and super rushed staff who could not keep up and... More

Esaan is a very small restaurant. Reservations are suggested. The food is very fresh and very tasty. I have not had a bad meal in all my visits. A small, family owned restaurant that give you a consistent meal every time. This is not a fast food restaurant. Plan to be there a while because each dis is made for... More

My husband and I arrived in York at the end of a very long Saturday day trip. Thai sounded like just the thing, and I was intrigued by the fact that this restaurant will use coconut oil upon request. Unfortunately for us, York was really hopping because of St Patrick's Day, and the restaurant was packed. There was a small... More

This place is a gem within York City. They are family owned and very slow, but the food is worth the wait. Genuine and authentic Thai food that won't break the bank. Odd business hours so check before you go!

We were introduced to this downtown restaurant during a recent "first Friday" event in the city. Friday and Saturday evenings are busy and we were advised that reservations are a "must", preferrably at mid-week for the weekend. The menu is diverse, food is good and service was very good. This is a BYOB. They have gelato and sorbeto for dessert... More

I arrived at restaurant for take out. The attendant was busy with another costumer. I was second in line. As soon as she finished with the customer, she left. She did not greet me or asked me to wait. I then saw her walking fast from the dining room to the kitchen. I was still waiting for her and she... More

The most fantastic meal is never going to justify the dreadful service. Essan has some very lovely dishes that are clearly made from fresh, high quality ingredients. However, that does not replace the need for service that does not reek of surly. I am still upset by the terrible and snarky service that I received today. I have dined here... More
