A mid trip lunch stop. Nice ambiance and nice selection of Thai with various dishes with Asparagus which I love. Dishes excellent except... Vietnamese springrolls rice paper not soaked long enough and was chewy and "tough" Kate did not charge us but it took the edge off and otherwise excellent meal.

This is a great place. Not the cheapest, however,c well worth the price. Great restaurant to explore the the menu and try something new. The service was spot on as was the food.

Our friends invited us for a dinner on one Saturday evening. The weather was not good, it was raining but we could not resist! We are foodies and love to meet friends so we went and had a wonderful time. It's a nice restaurant, very busy, classy place with lots of choices for vegetarians. We had Grilled eggplant with tomatoes... More

I have not reviewed this restaurant since 12/14, however I have dined here many times since then. There have been many personnel changes since they opened up their new location in Tinley Park, IL, however they have maintained their quality and service. Kate is a very good manager, and she is surrounded by a very capable staff. The lounge offers... More

Fantastic food. Thai food. Appetizers were asparagus crispy rolls and Vietnamese spring rolls both were very good. Entrée choice asparagus fried rice, hoisin marinated pork chop, garlic chicken, cilantro lime tilapia and pad thai. I couldn't decide between the pad thai or tilapia. I chose the tilapia . It was fantastic. Everyone at the table ordered something different. I could... More

Best Pad Thai anywhere. Clean, friendly and fantastic service. Asparagus appetizer was amazing. You will not leave this restaurant hungry. Portions are great for the price. Drinks a little high but good. Highly recommend.

I really like the food here. We usually sit in the dining area, however last time we sat in the bar and it really enhanced the evening. The dining area is not nearly as comfortable and the lighting seems to be a bit cafeteria style. The bar lighting really sets off a better mood. The service is always top drawer... More

Very nice, neat, cozy, Thai place. Food is fresh and very good. Yet to find another Thai restaurant that matches up in the area. Red snapper dish is a must try. It's huge. Needs to improve desert options

Everyone raves about this place. I think it's a bit over priced and the food quality was just ok. It's one of those all around places that tries to do Chinese, Thai and Americanized versions. I have only gone there a few times and wasn't impressed so I haven't gone back. I was on a date once and a large... More
