I have been living in the Gold Coast area for quite some time, but had only gone to this restaurant on only one occasion until the last few weeks. I thoroughly enjoy this place and will be a regular customer from this point on.

I normally love Lettuce Entertain You restaurants. We had lunch here with six people and ordered a multitude of items. I do not think anyone was impressed with their food. Service was great. A bit pricey for Asian far.

Came here for lunch on a recent visit to Chicago and came back twice more for takeout, since our rented apartment was nearby. Had the potstickers, Asian chicken salad, Teriyaki glazed chicken fried rice, and Panang curry chicken—all very good and reasonably priced. The restaurant is quite large and was doing a brisk business at dinnertime and later in the evening with a much quieter vibe at lunchtime.

There are several Big Bowls in Chicago and for the most part the Lettuce Entertain You ownership maintains consistency in them.
It is good food though service once and awhile may be spotty and the personnel may not be able to answer all your questions. Nonetheless if you like Chinese or Thai, it should work for you.
