We tried Cida Thai Restaurant after reading the reviews. We went there on a Sunday at 5 P.M. with 2 teens and 4 adults. The service was friendly and quick. The restaurant was clean, and small, for perhaps 50 people at the most. There is additional parking in the rear when the front spots are filled. The tables filled up fast with people who appeared to be "regulars." It's a BYOB place. However, they have Sprite, Coke, Thai ice tea, and smoothies.

We ordered a variety of dishes. I have to say the Crab Rangoon was the best I have ever tasted. The Coconut Milk soup was too thin, and barely tasted like coconut. I ordered the ginger catfish. There were very few slices of ginger and the small, square chunks catfish arrived friend in what tasted like rubber batter. The sauce was essentially tasteless. Another of our party ordered the Chicken Satay, of which she left half, saying it was not all that good, even though the peanut sauce was blended well. Of the 6 different dishes we ordered, no one in our party could "rave" about any of them. So sad because we have been looking for a really good, authentic Thai restaurant in the area.

My parents lived in Bangkok for three years so I always defer to them when it comes to Thai food in the Chicagoland area. This is the restaurant they keep coming back to because they say its as authentic as it gets!

The food always tastes fresh. They have a carrot salad that is pretty enjoyable and their red snapper is awesome. The service is great and the price really can't be beat - we recently fed six people with appetizers and entrees for less than $80.

We stayed at a local hotel and found this place on Yelp. The location was sketchy, the decor was, well, non-existant, but the food was great! The prices were great. You could tell the clientele were regulars...they have a great little local Thai place! We wish we had one like this at home.

The food at Cida is very very good. The service is great. The decor could use some updates but it's clean. There's quite a few good Thai restaurants in the Countryside/La Grange area. That one is my favorite for the food. Others are better for ambiance.
