We've eaten at this restaurant numerous times and normally there aren't many people when we're there. We've always been afraid we're going to stop by sometime and find an "out of business" sign on the door and that would be a real shame. This little Thai restaurant is a gem. If you like Thai food it doesn't get better than what Thai Town serves up. The food is extremely fresh and beautifully presented. Whether it's the noodle dishes like Pad Thai to the curries or the seafood it's all superbly prepared and the service is wonderful. It's in a strip center that's not easy to find and this is probably one of the problems since people can't see it from Randall Road. Do yourself a favor and check out Thai Town ... you won't regret it.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Chicagoland. It's small and quiet, tucked into a pleasant shopping center in an area surrounded by stores and upscale homes.

It is owned and operated by a sweet and friendly Thai family.

I had the Massaman curry which had wonderfully layered flavors that were sweet, sour, savory and even aromatic. My wife really enjoyed her Pad Thai with Tofu. Our kids loved the Satay Chicken and Muu Ping (both are marinated meat on a skewer). Thai Town's Pineapple Fried Rice is among the best we've had...anywhere. The ingredients of each meal were high quality and the preparation was perfect.

This food will delight your taste buds and make most asian food (especially the chains) seem dull in comparison.
