    The som tum is a killer! It's delicious but too damn spicy. I was sweating after a few bites. Be sure your tongue is prepared! if you are a true Thai this may be mild for you! Hahaha

    My all time favorite thia place. We love the service, atmosphere, and cannot get enough of the Mild Yellow Curry. I recommend doing it medium spicy. Can't go wrong with the Pad Thai either!

    Great food for reasonable prices. The Mossamon Curry is best I've ever had. And to drink, you can't do much better than the Pomegranate-Lychee Martini, with a big ol' lychee at the bottom. Delicioso!

    Chicken (both in curry and in noodles) was dry and tough. Curry and noodles need more salt. Good fish cakes and squid salad. So far, I'd say go with the seafood and avoid the pedestrian Thai dishes.

    The place looks much nicer from the inside than you'd tell from the outside. We've tried the spicy rice noodles and a curry and were very happy with our choices.

    Food tastes not bad, my Thai friend told me it's quite authentic! Curry chicken is good and kinda spicy. Great portion btw.

    Excellent and inexpensive Thai food here and at sister restaurant Dao in Streeterville. Try the Panang Nue - chicken, beef , or tofu. Favorite dish in the city.

    So. My guy and I were in the city trying to dig up the glorious hidden jems buried within the grand central station of all tourism (aka. Chicago as a collective). And stumbled upon this. Def. worth it

    Curry fried rice is excellent. Plum wine is good, but only 1 glass will do. Chicken satay is also excellent. Can't beat this restaurant

    I could drink the peanut sauce, it's soooo good! Also very strong and reasonably priced drinks. Highly recommend!

    Great Pad Thai! You have to be over them to be seated, their seating system is useless...
  • Jackie E.

    Some of the best crab rangoon I've ever had! Not too sweet, with a very cheesy flavor.

    The Crazy noodles are VERY good but beware of the spicy green pepper! It was a real experience.

    Must have - thai iced tea, cucumber salad and mussaman curry. Skip the eggplant, it's mediocre.

    The naem sod is the best. Ask for a side of rice, the hot and cool mouth feel is great.

    Unless you can handle SERIOUS Scoville units, do NOT order the eggplant (#7). It nearly killed me.
