“Hidden little gem”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

Authentic Thai food at a reasonable price accompanied by tasty cocktails served by friendly Asian faces -if this is what you're looking for then I recommend this place. it looks very unassuming and tucked away on Illinois Street until you walk in and find modern furnishings with authentic Thai decor along with a pleasant atmosphere..

“Very good food in pleasant casual restaurant”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

Someone from my hotel recommended this excellent Thai restaurant, just a block away. It's not easy to find, but once inside, it's inviting and open looking. The menu is extensive--a range of curries and noodle dishes and an excellent selection of appetizers. I ordered take out from my hotel room and it was ready and nicely packaged as promised. My curried chicken dish (with a side order of rice) was superb. The price--for a city restaurant--was unbeatable. Because I stay at the same hotel frequently, I will definitely eat here again.

“Consistently good with great service”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

We stop in to enjoy a nice Thai meal when in Chicago. It is located in a great place and the service is friendly and efficient. We had a group of 15 last time we dined and they took very good care of us. Food is very good and there is a lot of variety and choice. Always enjoy the pot stickers as an app and then try to pick an entree! Will definitely return there!

“Great Thai value”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

My husband and I had lunch here while staying at the Hotel Palomar, across the street.
We had spring rolls and shrimp wonton soup for appetizers. There were two spring rolls with a spicy peanut sauce. The soup was enough for two, as the menu explains.
For the entree, my husband had the pad Thai. I tried the "spicy crazy noodles."
The pad Thai was exactly what he wanted. The spicy was SPICY, which the waitress had warned me.
So, if you like it hot, go for it. Otherwise, find something else.
A good value with pleasant service.
