We have had many of the dishes at Alt Thai. -Pad Thai with Shrimp and BBQ Pork-fresh, and delicious, not too sweet. -The Glass Noodle Salad, served warm with spicy, tangy vinegar dressing. -Scallops, Hawaiian Chicken and Curry dishes...I guess we have pretty much eaten most of the things on the menu. The services is very quick and the servers... More

Perfect for anyone in the Arlington heights area however I would also recommend that this is a drive worthy experience. The location is great for local Arlington heights shopping (if you are planning on shopping and eating please use the parking garages or you will be greeted with a fresh parking ticket. The food is wonderful - fresh and spot... More

Came Saturday night early and were seated quickly. The asparagus roll was very good and quite unique with shrimp as well and very large. The salmon roll is more a salmon fried egg roll but delicious with a mayo sauce. Had basil noodle with tofu and tilapia Penang . Both were done very well and decent portion of the noodle... More

Great for a date night! Even my 6 year old kids love it and ask to come back for the Pad Thai and crab rangoon often. My wife and I love the pot stickers, chicken salad (think rice vinegar base with fresh lemongrass, cilantro, etc over a little bit of greens) and the tofu Panjang Curry. Yum! If you like... More

I’ve been here with my wife at least 10 times, and have yet to have anything bad. For the most part, its kind of an Americanized version of Thai food. The one thing that keeps me coming back most is the Pineapple curry with duck. Its insanely delicious, and there are not many places in the suburbs where you can... More

Never been disappointed at this place - have visited many times - owner personally oversees the food prep and service - he is not interested in expanding beyond what he does - for which we give him full credit - he enjoys what he does and takes care of his many repeat customers with high quality food and service. His... More

2 Stars because the people were friendly. No more than that because the food was terrible. The Tom Ka soup smelled like old fish and tasted similarly. The chicken satay and the salmon were both very dry. The brown rice is ...unique. It didn't taste bad, but it is not what you expect when you order brown rice. Just skip... More

Stopped in for dinner and were very happy with the choice. The food was great and the staff and manager on site were very attentive and pleasant. Would definitely want to go back.

My husband and I finally ate here after seeing it off of Arlington Heights road on your drive home from work for so long. You have to park underground usually as space close by is limited, plus the door is not close to parking. Odd, so it kept us away for quite some time. But, it is a cute, intimate... More
