This is my favorite Thai place and the one that I compare all others to! Everything is phenomenal! My go to dish is the Pad Woon Sen but I've tried many others and loved them all.

This was a first for my husband and I and we were pretty impressed. We both like spicy food and it did not disappoint. The only thing I regret was ordering so much food. We were in town for business and did not have the ability to take any leftovers home with us. I felt the price was not outrageous,... More

Went with friends, had three different entrées shared and all were good. Service was very good, nice atmosphere and ambience. If you like Thai food and are looking for a fair price to a nice evening out Dao is the place.

We used their delivery service, which was very efficient, came within an hour of our call, was hot, extremely tasty, and we got extra utensils and paper plates. The portion sizes are pretty big, so can comfortably share between two to three persons and it is pretty cheap for Chicago dining.

The food was, as before, very delicious. The service was great, the portions very large, and the price was just right. Every thing about the attentiveness of the staff and the fun atmosphere was really nice. There is a seating option of sitting either at a table or in an area where one needs to climb on a small platform... More

Large number of menu choices, fair prices, excellent service, quiet, clean atmosphere, and a fun place for the 5 of us. Our meal was very tasty, and we were able to share a number of dishes, trying some things we'd never had before. I'd recommend this little restaurant in downtown Chicago highly.

This is by far the worst order out and pick up I have ever done. I ordered online and paid. I received my confirmation and everything was time stamped. I waited about 10 minutes and called to just ask how long I should wait before coming to pick up the food. The woman said another 25 minutes. I said ok.... More

Service was good. Location great. Ambiance dull. Food average at best. Will not be looking to eat here again. Pad Thai chicken was bland. Pepper steak was edible but forgettable. More effort needs to be made with food quality.

While I enjoy Thai food, I do not enjoy grass hoppers in pad Thai noodles. Also, the exterior of the restaurant had rodents running around. Watch out for the hygiene at this restaurant. The health dept folks need to check out their kitchen for cleanliness.

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
