    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!

    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

    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.

    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!

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

    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

    The. BEST. Crab Rangoon in the city!

    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.

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