The food at Esaan is amazing. Everything I have ordered there has been phenomenal. The location doesn't offer many tables, so reservations are HIGHLY recommended for dinner. Esaan is great for those who love Thai food and for those who aren't too familiar. Oddly, they also have really food gelato.

Local dining place that attracts many loyal fans. We went on a weekend night and it was much busier than we anticipated. Waited an hour for a table for three next to the door. I mean, next to the door! Parking is usually easy and I am sure weekdays places are plentiful. Attentive staff with a good knowledge of the... More

I dined here during the lunch rush, which was a terrible mistake, as I ended up waiting 40 minutes for my order. The spicy thai basil was very tasty, but hardly worth it. It was also $18 for a rice dish and soda, which I think stretches expected "lunch hour" prices. I supposed a packed restaurant on the high side... More

I've been to Esaan a handful of times and always enjoy whatever I order. The dining area is small. The service is excellent. Take out is a good option for our family.

The Thai food here is very good and the Thai iced tea super refreshing although awfully rich. Don't expect to get out of here in a hurry. The food is cooked to order and it takes time. I am not supposed to eat nuts and they are able to do the pad thai without the peanuts (and don't even consider... More

We love this restaurant on Beaver Street in Downtown York. Small, quaint and so good. Love the green curry soup and most every dish on the menu. The Gelato at the end is fantastic. My favorites are almond and hazelnut.

I had lemon grass pork that was dry and tasteless. Wife had chicken stir fry with basil that was equally horrible. The only thing good was the coconut water and Thai Iced Tea. After having these meals packed to go and making a stop before heading to hotel, when I returned to the car I asked my wife if she... More

Duck Confit Rolls were great! As was the Masaman Curry with chicken. Don't miss the house made gelato with a great choice of flavors

My first visit to Esaan was six months ago with friends. I loved it so much that I came back the next day with my husband. Several months passed, and although I thought about it often, I didn't make it back. Last week, I finally returned to realize that it was even better than I remember, so, of course, I've... More

Met with some colleagues for lunch and was delighted by the delicious meal. A must try is the Pad Thai and save room for the Gelato. Everything was great including the business that was taken care of over the meal.
