The panang curry was the best we've ever had. It had a beautifully exotic taste. The chicken basil was also amazing. Portions were large, but not too large. The service was excellent. They have a booming takeout business - they filled quite a few orders...while we were there. If you go for ambience, you'll be disappointed, but if you're going for excellent food, you've found the right place. The price was certainly right! Good food, good price - what more could you want?More

We have been coming here since 2005. We have since moved to the far north side of Chicago but when we want excellent Thai food, we make the 30-40 minute journey to New Pot. My kids are picky about non-cheese, spaghetti, burger type meals, but...they wolf down appetizers and entrees at New Pot. Good food, good prices, friendly service.More

I enjoyed a quick delicious lunch here on a weekday afternoon. The service was friendly and prompt. The environment is clean and bright. I had beef Pad Thai that came with soup. It was definitely above average Thai, but the portion was very modest for...my appetite. I'd consider visiting again to try more of the menu if in the area. Worth a try for sure, but order an extra dish if you're really hungry.More

I have traveled all over Asia, New Pot has the best Tom Yum soup you will find anywhere in Chicago, or USA.

Sorry no food pictures. I was starving when I wolfed down all my delicious food! I ordered the Chicken Basil with ground chicken and red and green peppers with basil and jalapeno! Served with white rice. Just enough jalapeno to be spicy but not hot...and plenty of basil for that fresh flavour. And I had the Thai tea. This was a real treat and next time I'm in Chicago, I will swing by here. Its also in a lovely historical district by the Frank Lloyd Wright house.More

Despite that I was in the mood for Vietnamese Saigon Pho across the street i ended up going here the day after Labor day 2017. I will have to say it is a good place to eat for Thai since unfortunately Thai cuisine is really...my favorite Cuisine. I ordered a Thai Ice Tea, A Tom Kha soup and the Chicken green curry and I have to say as usual very delicious. I would recommend going here if "Saigon Pho" is closed too if you still have a 2nd choice to try another Asian dish!More

We've ordered from New Pot (as well as eaten in) several times, and the food is always consistently really good! They're also great at making sure specific instructions are followed. (Like no baby corn in the mixed veggies.) Great flavors. Good service. Good value. Would...recommend if you like Thai food!More

Haven't been there in many years (~10?) before this visit. Very extensive menu. Multi Asian cuisines. The curry puffs were surprisingly good. My main dish (which was recommended by the waiter) had very fresh vegetables but too few of them. The beef tasted like it...had been reheated, had an "off" taste. Most of the others with me seemed to enjoy theirs and I know several people who used to rave about this place. BYOB with no corkage fee is nice. It is very close so I might try getting something without beef next time.More

I highly recommend this place, looks dinky from outside but nicer inside and great food! The service was excellent. Got my food fast and reasonably priced.

Have only been here a couple of times and get the crab Rangoon and spring rolls. Both are good. The service can be a tad slow considering it has not been busy when I have been there. I think they do a lot of carry...out though?More
