“Best Pad Thai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

We have been going to Sweet Chili since it opened (16 years ago?) and have never been disappointed. I have to compare all other Pad Thai that I order elsewhere against this one, and they are never as good. The chicken massaman curry is also very good. We will keep on going there forever (I hope).

“Big portions!! Good taste...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

We tried it when one of my friends suggested this place. It's a casual restaurant. We didn't order our favorites as we wanted to try something new. The food was good quality and very reasonably priced. The location is great. We'll go back o try our favorites next time :)

“Palate Pleaser”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Hubby and I went to Sweet Chili on a Friday night in August. We had steamed vegetable dumplings followed by massaman curry and pad see yew, both delicious. Our waiter was attentive, but not annoyingly so. I enjoyed the polka dot decor and the wooden 'namaste' figure at the entrance. I've had the pad thai in the past and was very satisfied. For the modest price, this is a very good restaurant.

good Thai in Arlington Center; slightly mod / 60s atmosphere, but definitely fun for a group.

“Great strong flavor, unbelievable lunch prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2011

Any lunch here is under $8 many choices include your choice of meat and spices or a suggested way. The pad thai is excellent and you get spring rolls with each order. Cute decor, parking is tough but otherwise this place is an excellent value especially for the location
