I liked this place. I just didn't love it. The fresh vietnamese spring rolls were ok at best. I ordered the panang nue (beef curry) it was very good. I think the beef could have been more tender, but the overall flavor was very good....More

Busy but highly efficient staff. Seating was unusual (see pics) but fun. Chicken satay, Pad see eiw, Massamun curry were terrific. Only the eggplant dish was a disappointment. Plenty left over for lunch the next day. Nice bookstore next door.More

Nice entering here when it was chilly outside and nice, warm and cosy inside. A nice item in the restaurant is the way the tables in the middle are sunken, giving the impression you sit on the floor. The restaurant seems to be popular as...More

This is a restaurant to which I've returned several times over the years I've been visiting Chicago. Overall, I'd call it comfort food, and a restfully quiet venue. Not a restaurant where one goes To Be Seen, or to have fashionably gourmet food, but rather...More

Really expensive for the portion you get. But the one star review is because the waitress ran after me because she wasn't happy with the amount I tipped. Shameless, in my opinion. I will not be returning.
