Good Thai Food & Service. Reasonable Prices.

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... read 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

Good food. Watch your bill. They carefully added a gratuity for 3 people and even listed suggested amounts to tip even though this was already in he bill. They then brought the credit card statement without the bill so you could have easily missed he added tip and never mentioned the gratuity had already been added yet had a spot... More

My wife and I really love pad thai, and we happened across Chilli Duck while we were wandering around in Boston. When you first see the storefront, you're likely to not be too impressed, as it's sort of down in the basement of the building across from the imposing Prudential Center. I even commented to my wife that it looked... More

Located across from the entrance to the Prudential center, this small half basement Thai restaurant is unassuming but serves some pretty good Thai dishes. The chicken satay and Massaman curry, both staples in most all Thai restaurants was very good and flavorful in comparison to others and so was the Indonesian fried rice dish that I tried. The Thai ice... More
