We were in town for the weekend hanging out with friends and decided on Erawan for dinner. We were greeted and seated within minutes of arriving even with a party of 7. The place was a little busy but not packed by any means. Before ordering we requested separate checks because some of us were paying with credit cards and... More

Needed a place near the Shakespeare Theater and this was it. Food was good but not memorable. Pretty standard Thai experience. The Masaman curry was the best dish of the night. The Drunken Noodles were a bit fishy for my taste. Would go again but it's not a destination. They do have an early dinner 3-course special which is a... More

I had lunch her the other day with a friend. We both really enjoyed our meals. I had green curry with chicken. The portion was generous and the flavor was spot on. We will definitely be back.

3 of us went here on a Sunday night and it was totally packed and there was only 1 waitress! We waited for 35 minutes to get our food and then told them we needed to get it to go because we were running late. We waited 10 more minutes and finally got it! AND it was some of the... More

Erawan Thai Cuisine has been a Thai standby for years. And years. The food is well prepared, and they again offer brown rice as an option after discontinuing that availability for a while. But the menu, though reliable, is beginning to get a bit tired. As is the service. Still an excellent BYOB value, however.

Went there late Sunday evening for a dinner to-go. Very friendly staff and the order was delivered in under 10 minutes! Chose the veg.style Drunken Noodles. As someone else noted here on TripAdvisor - a little oily, but good taste and hot as I like it.

We were on a quick visit to Philly and had heard that Erawan has authentic Thai food. We brought a bottle of wine (it is BYOB) that was warm off the shelf and they immediately chilled it for us. We started with Papaya Salad which was very refreshing. My husband had Chu Chee Scallops which he said were perfect. The... More

I was on a project near Erawan and visited it for lunch three times in the last two weeks. The lunch special is a great value, so I got it all three days. It includes with a fresh house salad (with a nice peanut dressing), and choice of soup, spring rolls, or some other options (I chose the spring rolls... More

The food here is outstanding. I am a huge Thai food fan and this place has the best drunken noodles in the city. Everything tastes very fresh and authentic, and the spices are done perfectly. If you work in Center City, pick a day when the weather is nice and come here for lunch. You won't regret it!
