“Loved this place, ate here twice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2014

Loved this place.
The service was outstanding, the prices good and the food was great!
We love pad thai and are always disappointed at the outcome. We had found only 3 places that serve awesome pad thai and we have not found our 4th. Had to come the next day, just to have the pad thai.
Too bad we don't live in Chicago, or we would be coming here more!!!

“Very good food, very good prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

I have been in this restaurant 2 times and this is a very good restaurant in the center of Chicago. Saying that, I expected it to be kind of pricy, but it wasn't! Prices are in the range of the 8 dlls!. Portions are big and the food taste delicious. Service is great and fast. Try the green tea ice cream, it's my favorite.

“Perfect Thai choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

This is a perfect choice for great, fresh thai food. Excellent, friendly and quick service. Fresh flavors, great drinks, and a pleasant environment. And not expensive. On my itinerary every time I am in Chicago (used to be a regular during my years living in Chicago).

“Great Thai food. Great prices.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

Here for an early dinner. The staff was pleasant and the food was delicious. Rice is not included with the entrees but is reasonably priced. The bar set up looks very temporary or an after thought. The green curry was hot but very tasty. I don't think you could go wrong with anything on the menu. Would return again the next time I'm in town.

“super quick and very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Had only 25 minutes or so before I had to get on the train to go see the Orioles crush the White Sox. Food was literally out in less than 10 minutes and very good. Had the beef massaman curry. Not expensive at all. Good option for local Thai.
