This is by far the worst order out and pick up I have ever done. I ordered online and paid. I received my confirmation and everything was time stamped. I waited about 10 minutes and called to just ask how long I should wait before coming to pick up the food. The woman said another 25 minutes. I said ok.... More

Service was good. Location great. Ambiance dull. Food average at best. Will not be looking to eat here again. Pad Thai chicken was bland. Pepper steak was edible but forgettable. More effort needs to be made with food quality.

While I enjoy Thai food, I do not enjoy grass hoppers in pad Thai noodles. Also, the exterior of the restaurant had rodents running around. Watch out for the hygiene at this restaurant. The health dept folks need to check out their kitchen for cleanliness.

Very fresh homemade curries. Excellent service. Many patrons were eating alone and reading. Nice to feel somewhat meditative once inside!

The host, and hostess were kind, but did not like the food or the restaurant. The restaurant was dirty looking, and tables were barely standing. So sorry, but would not recommend this restaurant.

Ravenous and tired, I was looking for just a place to eat when I happened to locate this restaurant. Quickly looked it up for ratings and it was a 3.6. I thought it ain't bad! I walked in and was seated. The ambience looked nice and I liked the place. We ordered Vegan items but my serving with tofu smelled... More

This restaurant does the basics really well. My chicken teriyaki dish had plenty of meat and vegetables and was enough for two meals. My husband got a spicier dish and the sauce was very good, even though it was too spicy for me. I could tell the flavor of his curry was excellent and he could add as much spice... More

I ate lunch here with a group from a meeting. One of the ladies was from out of town and comes here each time she's in town. She raves about the spring rolls. We ordered the fresh spring rolls and they were delicious!! Perfectly cut fresh crunchy veggies with a sweet plum sauce. $5.50 for an order of two...very affordable.... More

We went in for lunch and found the menu to be quite extensive. They have vegetarian option for most of their dishes and that is often hard to find. Super quick service, really good tasting food. The curry was simply superb! Must try if you are looking for some good Thai food.

I love thai food but this isn't the place to get anything authentic. Food is decent but is very Americanized. Seating is odd with you eating too close to other diners. Not recommend.

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
