Excellent Tom Yum Soup

I was feeling a little peckish and happened upon this quirky little Thai place by accident. It is at basement level and doesn't look all that salubrious from road level but hunger drove me on and the delicious smells issuing from the kitchen reassured me.

My husband and I wanted a simple quick meal and we were convinced this was one of the best places we ate at while in Boston! We had the steamed dumplings and split the Pad Thai after we read that the portions are large as well as the mango and sticky rice for dessert. It was absolutely amazing! They have... More

I work for an airline and come to Boston fairly regularly and always come here .. you can eat in but I usually get a takeaway. The food is absolutely lovely, never had a bad meal. Highly recommend it.

We went to a show at the Hynes Center and were looking for a place to have a quick lunch and saw Chili Duck and decided to give it a try. The first thing that impressed was the quick approach by our server who explained a couple of dishes that be thought we might try. We started with a very... More

The tom yum soup with noodles is perfect...sweet and spicy and so fresh! Good pad thai and green curry. Sort of a "hole in the wall" kind of place but such good food.

This is a Thai restaurant located right in the middle of the Back Bay neighborhood across from the Prudential Center. This is one of those places I return time and time again. The portions are huge and the meal appears within 10 minutes of placing your order. All curry dishes, drunken noodle, and pad thai are superb. Their soups are... More

Frequented this establishment many times, but only had a takeaway. So not eaten in the restaurant. The food is always fresh tasty and good portions. It is very well priced and the menu is quite extensive. I always pop in here for a quick tasty evening meal.

We were in the food for Thai food and thought we would give Chilli Duck a try. He ordered a Kiron Light (his favorite when eating Thai) but we were told they were out. It was a Thursday night so this was kind of surprising since it didn't look like it had been busy. He ordered Hoegaarden (Belgian) beer instead... More
