I travel to Elgin once a month for work and like all places I travel to I seek out the best local restaurants. Thai is one of favorite foods and Toom Toom Thai is in the top three restaurants for Thai. Every time I'm in town I make it a point to have lunch here at least once.

The selection of food here is very good, and I've like everything I've ever had. I've been there several times and always had wonderful service. The last time though, the waiter barely paid attention to us, brought out the wrong food, and was almost rude. I'll still go back, as that has never happened before. Everybody has an off night.

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
