The food here is excellent, but the night we went we were with a very large party and it was difficult for the kitchen to get our food out all at the same time. I'd like to go back again sometime with a smaller party. I'm sure it would be easier for them and nicer for us.

I picked up Friday night takeout for the family and was very impressed with their friendliness, great customer service, and amazing food! We had the ginger shrimp, Bangkok curry noodles with tofu, sesame chicken, and pineapple fried rice. I really wish I had leftovers for breakfast! I think I might have to go back for lunch...

We arrived late, shortly before it was set to close, but they didn't skip a beat, welcomed us in the most friendly way, and served us deliciously prepared Thai cuisine. The food was incredibly tasty and clearly was prepared with fresh ingredients with great care. Highly recommended.

Our group ate here at the recommendation of a local who swears by this place. We had a large group and were not in a hurry. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful if not exceptionally fast. I didn't feel like we waited an interminably long time but we were not pressed for time either. I got the Masaman and... More

We went because of the rave reviews. I left disappointed honestly. Food was ok. Service was ok. Frustrating moment that clouded the rest of the visit- we asked the waitress what was always a favorite as we have never been there. Was told standard "all is good here" answer. Asked seriously what is your top ordered item. Again we got... More

Have eaten at this restaurant twice. The food was incredibly delicious and very authentic. The Thai green curry is outstanding as well as the Pud Si Ew noodle dish. I lived in Thailand for 10 years . I was very impressed with how authentic the food tasted and was presented. The owner is cheerful friendly and loves what she's doing.

I attempted to dine here recently while in town for the Elgin Fringe Festival. When I arrived the place was mostly empty, except around the bar area where it seemed that alot of either family or friends where actively engaged in conversation. I was promptly seated in the dining room next door, and the completely forgotten about. After 30 minutes... More

Love coming to Toom Toom! The food is always fresh and delicious. The service is excellent. This is a true family run restaurant. Mama Toom does all the cooking and her daughter takes care of the customers. Not sure how they do it when it is busy. But we have always had great service and wonderful food. Love all the... More

I am a resident of Elgin and I love supporting the local restaurants. Toom Toom is run by a wonderful Thai women (Mama Toom) and her daughter (Tik Tik). The food is delicious (specifically crab fried rice and chicken rice soup). But I have witnessed (and read here) people being dissatisfied by the service experience so I hope I can... More
