Thai Chili always has super fast service from waiters/waitresses and from the kitchen. Everything we've ordered is fresh and served hot (the way it should be). Our family's favorite dishes include coconut tom yum soup with chicken, house special crispy tofu, duck fried rice, drunken noodles, and the fried tilapia with spicy sauce. They are usually very nice and will... More

Grilled dishes and eggplant are especially good. Service is great! Atmosphere not so much as the place is a tacky strip mall, but the outside seating is good for pet lovers. Menu is extensive with plenty of vegetarian choices. Don't miss Thai Chili if you are in Elk Grove and want fresh fast Thai food and friendly service.

I will confess that I went to Thai Chili with modest expectations. Living the SF Bay Area, there are many Thai restaurants, and we have many good ones to choose from within a few miles of our home. So when we pulled into a strip mall and walked into Thai Chili, I was not expecting that I would have the... More

Everything is very flavorful. The wait staff are helpful. It's popular, but the wait typically isn't too long. Highly recommend!

The food here is amazing, and they let you choose just how spicy you'd like it to be. Great place to bring friends too.

This restaurant has such a large selection of dishes and they are all good that it is hard to decide what to order. To start off, rice, get the pineapple fried rice. it is awesome. It is a meal in and of itself. They have a large curry selection, which can change seasonally. Pumpkin curry and Duck curry may be... More

After getting over the fishy smell when we arrived, (thus the 4, not 5 rating) the food was FANTASTIC! Hadn't been here in a few years, seemed the food was BETTER than before. I didn't order anything with seafood, to be safe. The servings were substantial, the service was SPECTACULAR, very friendly and helpful. Will be going back much more... More

Consistently great. Great service. Always full, never have to wait too long, but when you do it's worth it. We go here all the time. Definitely a favorite.

This is a local favorite, and they have expanded as a result. I can only speak for the vegetarian dishes. They have an extensive menu with vegetarian options for just about everything. The Green Papaya Salad is great, but can be spicy, so order accordingly. The curry dishes are great, pumpkin Red, Mango Panang, Coconut Green Curry, everything is great.... More
