My friends and I were in Arlington Heights as a weekend trip into the Chicago area. The first night, we wanted some more exotic food - Thai, Malaysian, Japanese, Indian, Moroccan, Afghani.

They seem to have flavorful dishes with traditional seasoning but the atmosphere was pretty bland. Our server was polite & efficient but that was about it. I will probably go somewhere else for my Thai fix next time I'm in town.

This is my favorite Thai place in Arlington Heights. Everything is always good and the service prompt. It's a little annoying that, if the Sushi chef does not come in, they have no sushi that day, but that's my only complaint.

They have a very large selection of lunch specials for only $8. That includes the entree, soup and the appetizer of the day (some days it's two chicken satays, others it's a crab rangoon and a spring roll.., etc.) I highly recommend the Pad Thai and the Cashew Chicken.

The food is bland - just an underseasoned mess. Right down the street is Alt Thai which is much nicer from a food, service and ambience standard.

Went for a dinner and ordered a veg curry rice. I felt the rice is stale and couldnt eat atleast half of the portion. Didnt like the service as well. Then we understood that why the place was empty even on a weekend night. A big NO for this.

Traveling on business and this restaurant was on a recommended list. Ordered take out for a quick bite. Ended up with a very tasty, just right meal. A great break from eating at a chain restaurant.
