Not exactly a high end restaurant, however the food was very nice. The prices were very reasonable. Overall a great place to go for lunch with your friends.

My wife and I tried Esan Thai, since we're fond of the Park Ave. area in Rochester. The result was a mixed bag. The service was fine (kudos to the server, who handled many tables while visibly pregnant.) But the food was a bit one-note, and lacked the complexity and richness of flavor that the best Thai food has. My... More

This is probably the best Thai food in Rochester! It was my favorite restaurant for while and during the time we were visiting before we moved here I must have gone here like 15 times. The restaurant doesn't have great atmosphere...but the food is great, the prices are great and the service is great! I love the drunken noodles!

I have always loved the food at Esan and have been going there for 15 years. The food is fresh and flavorful. They are flexible in accommodating my child's food preferences. The food is not fancy, but you can always get a filling, reasonably priced, and tasty meal.

Well today was the first day I have ever had Thai food, and I am hooked! I had the Pad Thai and it was great. I know I don't have much to compare it to but I enjoyed every bite. There were about 8 tables in the little place but the waiter was great and friendly, and he answer all... More

This is a great Thai restaurant in the Park Avenue area, and has quickly turned into one of our goto Thai places in the area. The food is great, the venue perfect for an outdoor summer meal, and the service prompt. And if you like your food spicy, ordering it five star will definitely jog your senses and give your... More

We ate there last year and afterward I went upstairs to use the ladies room. On the way I saw that one can observe the kitchen through a window, so I did. I saw a waitress return a bowl of rice along with some dirty dishes from a customer's table. The rice bowl was dumped BACK INTO THE RICE COOKER.... More
