Really good Thai menu. I've order numerous dishes and have enjoyed all of them. My favorite = Pad Thai Noodles, try the Tom Yum soup, you won't be disappointed. Reasonable prices and nice clean atmosphere.

We had a late dinner there. They have vegetarian pot stickers, which are hard to find in my experience (usually have pork fillings) and were tasty. Dishes were attractively presented. Prices reasonable.

This restaurant prepares good tasting and consistent dishes. The décor is simplified, but is a great place for a reasonably priced lunch or dinner.

I love Thai food and eat it as often as I can when traveling the world on business. When in Arlington Heights with 2 colleagues we went to 'Alt Thai' for dinner. The restaurant is not large which contributes to the welcoming and relaxed ambiance....More
