Since we were last here, the food and service have deteriorated somewhat. The wait person did not completely listen to what we wanted and was not attentive during the meal. The soup was very good, although lacking in the requested tofu. I asked for an order of summer rolls (fresh veggies wrapped in rice paper) for an entree and received... More

Small thai restaurant in downtown Skokie. Good service and food. Nothing fancy. Pleasant atmosphere.

The restaurant is right on a main street and you could probably miss it while passing by. As soon as you get in you get a simple but comfortable Thai atmosphere. It was not crowded at all on a Sunday (I think only two tables were occupied). The food was tasty, exactly how I expect it to be.

We had the Pad Thai, Pad See Ewe, and Crab Fried Rice in a clay pot. Everything was AMAZING, and the Crab Fried Rice was especially delicious. The Thai iced coffee was really good as well. They have gluten free soy sauce so most things can be made gluten free unless the noodles happen to have gluten. Highly recommended restaurant!

You decide how spicy. They have a number rating system to determine how hot . We have eaten here MANY times, which should tell you something about this restaurant. OUTSTANDING Thai food. When my brother and sister-in-law come in from Utah, our son from the DC area or we go it alone. Everything we have tried is excellent. The people... More

We have a vacation time to escape from our hard and long hour work. The most fun thing for us is to find good food to reward ourself. We're take a trip to Skokie ILL. We pick a Thai restaurant in down town on the second night there because of their high rating by the TripAdvisor's members. The Thai server... More

Food was a delight in this place, cozy ambiance but the downside is the slow service. Good thing my sister was visiting n had lots of stories to share while waiting for our food.

Terrific Thai food. Yellow curry was delicious. Good flavors, good pricing. Chicken Satay skewers were just right. Definitely a good find.

I go here twice a month. The staff is delightful. My favorites are the grilled scallops, grilled shrimp and the tiger steak. All served with aldente vegetables and rice. We always get the Healthy rice. A crunchy nutty flavor you can only get here. Meet friends here all the time. everyone has a different favorite. Seems to be kid friendly... More

Little pricey for Thai, but the cooking was spot on. Ingredients fresh, flavors exact. Meal wwll-plated, without being kitchey. Might have liked a little more lime and lemongrass.
