This was hands down, the worst Thai food I’ve ever eaten. The Satay had no taste and neither did the egg rolls; in fact, had they not been slathered in sweet and sour sauce, they would have been even worse. I can assure you that...I haven’t developed COVID so I still have my taste buds. Another thing I thought noteworthy was the disparity of the prices advertised on their website and the actual prices on their menu, i.e., Satay was advertised as $6.75 but menu was $9.95. I should have had my hackles up when during a lunch/rush hour, I was the only patron in the restaurant. I’ve enjoyed a lot of great cuisine while I’ve visited Chicago but this restaurant will stand out in my mind for some time. Not recommended.More

I called in my order and I was told it would be delivered within 45 minutes to one hour. Thirty minutes later, my telephone rang and the deliveryman informed me that he had arrived with my order. And this isn't the first time. My wife...and I have been ordering takeout from Tiparos Thai Cuisine & Sushi Bar on Chicago's Gold Coast for nearly 20 years and no restaurant we do business with can match that response. More importantly, the food is every bit as good or even better than the swift delivery service. After all, wouldn't you be happy if the food was terrific even though it took longer to be delivered? Tiparos wins on both counts. Our order is always the same...chicken egg rolls, chicken fried rice and beef chop suey. Lots of chicken and beef and lots of rice and vegetables. Located at 1540 North Clark Street, adjacent to the Germania Club building that currently is hosting the Van Gogh exhibit, south of North Avenue and the Chicago History Museum, Tiparos offers many delicious takes on sushi and Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese and Asian cuisine. Honestly, I don't consider chicken fried rice and beef chop suey to be authentic Thai cuisine. My mother was preparing chop suey in the 1950s. To me, chicken fried rice and beef chop suey are traditional American dishes. And nobody does it any better or any faster than Tiparos.More

Tiparos Thai Cuisine & Sushi Bar is one of our favorite restaurants in Chicago. Located at 1540 North Clark Street, south of North Avenue, in the city's Sandburg Village and Gold Coast neighborhoods, it is a popular go-to destination for made-from-scratchThai food and sushi. Every...month, we order delivery of our favorite items--chicken egg rolls, chicken fried rice with chicken, brown rice, eggs, green peas, white and green onions and beef chop suey with beef, jasmine rice, stir-fried peapod, sliced mushrooms, celery, bean sprouts, napa cabbage and gravy. Delivery is swift, the food is fresh and hot and tasty, the helpings are plentiful and the prices are reasonable. What can I say that I haven't said already about Tiparos? This is my 10th review and what else can I say? I'm a happy customer. My wife and I love chicken egg rolls, chicken fried rice and beef chop suey. We're never disappointed. I frequently ask my wife: Would you like to try something else on the menu? Fried wonton? Shrimp dumplings? Pot Stickers Chicken? Roasted Duck? Salmon Teriyaki? Tom Yum Noodle Soup? Cashew Chicken? No, we prefer everything the way it is.More

My take out order was somewhat disappointing. Nicely packaged though but I still had spillages. Need better containers. The restaurant itself was spacious and inviting. I would have eaten there if I had the time. I used the RITUAL APP for my order and I...think there may be some distinction made as far what goes into your meal order.More

What can I say about Tiparos Thai Cuisine & Sushi Bar that I have said already, lots of times. According to Tiparos' website, this is my ninth review, one a month for the last nine months. But I'm sure they are more, going back a...few years, since my wife and I discovered this wonderful restaurant on Chicago's Gold Coast. Located at 1540 North Clark Street, south of North Avenue, it is one of our favorite go-to destinations for items we don't prepare at home, one-of-a-kind chicken rolls, chicken fried rice and beef chop suey. That's our standard order. And we don't have to wait long for our delivery. But this time set a record. As usual, we were told that our order would be delivered with 45 minutes to one hour. Well, it arrived within 25 minutes of my telephone call. I know we love only a block away from the restaurant but 25 minutes is ridiculous, right? The food is so hot and delicious, large helpings. The chicken fried rice includes large chucks of chicken with onions, carrots and brown rice. The beef chop suey includes large pieces of beef with carrots, green peas, celery, bean sprouts, mushrooms and onions. Lots of vegetables and a thick gravy. It never disappoints. We have dined at the restaurant on occasion but we prefer home delivery because we enjoy eating our meal while watching a movie or sports event. It's so hot and fresh, it really feels as though we're sitting in the restaurant.More

This is my ninth review of Tiparos Thai Cuisine & Sushi Bar and the ninth time my wife and I have ordered delivery. Located at 1540 North Clark Street in Chicago's historic Gold Coast neighborhood, across the street from Latin School of Chicago and a...short walk from the Chicago History Museum, Tiparos is a once-a-month dinner fix. We always order the same items...chicken egg rolls, beef chop suey and chicken fried rice. We live only a block away from Tiparos so delivery isn't like neurosurgery. But we've never had a complaint. The food is always hot and fresh and never disappoints. Lots of beef, lots of chicken, lots of vegetables. And the portions are so large that there is enough left over for me to have a reheated snack later in the evening. Friends ask why we don't sample some of the other Oriental dishes on the menu. Of course, we don't cater to sushi. But I've been eating beef chop suey and chicken fried rice since the 1950s and a good habit is hard to break. And Tiparos' beef chop suey and chicken fried rice is as good as it gets.More

At last count, this is my eighth review of Tiparos Thai Cuisine & Sushi Bar. All rave notices, glowing reviews, no disappointments, no complaints. Located at 1540 North Clark Street, south of North Avenue, it has been our go-to destination for Thai food, our monthly...fix for chicken eggs, chicken fried rice and beef chop suey. Tiparos is only a block from our home so we order delivery and enjoy our meals while watching a movie or a sports event. Why do we always order the same items? Because it's always delicious and healthy and I can't think of anything I'd rather have. Start with the two chicken egg rolls, home-made and deep-fried and served with a sweet and sour sauce. Then fill your plate, half with chicken fried rice and half with beef chop suey. The chicken Thai fried rice includes eggs, green peas, white and green onions. Lots of chicken. The beef chop suey includes stir-fried peapods, sliced mushrooms, celery, bean sprouts and napa cabbage in a tasty gravy. Lots of beef. With extra white rice if you desire. No short-cuts, just a lot of delicious.More

I've lost count of the number of times I have submitted reviews of Tiparos Thai Cuisine & Sushi Bar to TripAdvisor. All I know for sure is, according to TripAdvisor's website, I have submitted more reviews than anyone else. And I know for sure that...the restaurant at 1540 North Clark Street in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood, a few steps south of North Avenue, attracts many locals who favor sushi more than I do. My wife and I love Tiparos because it is only a block from our home, its delivery service is first-rate, 30 minutes from stove to our front door, and we are addicted to Tiparos' chicken fried rice and beef chop suey. Sure, we've sampled other Thai items but we always come back to our favorites. For our most recent order, I added an appetizer, two chicken egg rolls with a cup of soy sauce. Delicious. I make the monthly menus in our house and Tiparos is always penciled in for one day. We are never disappointed.More

It doesn't get any better than Tiparos Thai Cuisine & Sushi Bar. At least once a month, my wife and I order delivery. Sure, we only live a block away from the restaurant, which is located at 1540 North Clark Street in Chicago's Gold Coast...neighborhood. But we love the convenience of eating a fresh, hot meal while while watching a good movie or exciting sports event on TV. Start with the delivery. On our most recent call, we were told it would take 45 minutes to an hour, which is standard. But this delivery came in 30 minutes, like it just came off the stove. We can't say enough about the food. Tiparos features an extensive menu of Thai food and sushi, including delicious pot stickers. But we are addicted to the chicken fried rice and beef chop suey. Lots of chicken, rice, beef and vegetables. And the serving is plentiful, enough for four. I make the weekly menus in our house and Tiparos always rates a once-a-month spot. You'd think I would run out of good things to say about Tiparos in my reviews but I'm just delighted that Tiparos has continued to please its loyal customers during the pandemic.More

The pandemic has placed a tremendous burden on this country's restaurant industry. Thankfully, many of them are surviving via delivery and curbside pickup service. Thankfully, Tiparos Thai Cuisine & Sushi Bar in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood continues to make chicken fried rice and beef chop...suey like nobody else. Located at 1540 North Clark Street, a block from our home, Tiparos offers swift and reliable delivery service. My wife and I have sampled other items on the menu over the years but we have settled on chicken fried rice and beef chop suey as a once-a-month dinner staple. Both dishes are filled with vegetables to supplement the chicken and beef. And the helpings are more than enough to satisfy the hungriest appetite. My approach is to fill a large bowl with half portions of each entree. I'm never disappointed. My reviews may be a little repetitious but I always point out to anyone who asks that Tiparos has something for everyone who enjoys Thai or sushi cuisine. And it's fun to wolf it all down while sitting in front of a TV set and watching a sports event or an old but never boring episode of Frasier or Law & Order or Columbo. Oops, time for seconds.More
