I went here with a rather large group. It's a small restaurant. The ambiance is very basic. But the food is great and the prices quite reasonable. I was safe and had the Pad Thai. It was very good. Some of the group had never had Thai food before. Others were seasoned in Thai cuisine. Some ordered the curry and were surprised that it was basically a soup. We ordered appetizers too. The crab rangoon was delicious but the filling was looser than what I'm used to. Maybe Chicago ares Thai cuisine is different than the east coast!

We were also unprepared for the fact that they don't serve liquor. However they do allow you to byob and there's a liquor store right next to the place so someone headed off and purchased two bottles of wine so we were good with that and you must admit, it's a lot cheaper.

Excellent food, excellent service, BYOB if you want an alcoholic beverage of any kind. Located in a strip mall and unassuming, but man, was the food ever good!

Small place with great food and very friendly staff. Bring your own wine ( wine shop next door) with no extra fee. Any food can be prepared for vegetarians.

The flavor of this food is good and stays consistent. Wish some of the portions were bigger even if the prices increased.

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.
