We ordered delivery and ordered an excess of food for friends. The soup was to die for, the summer rolls divine and the noodles were tasty as well. Thai basil chicken was ordered hot and we were glad we didn't go with one of the...More

Don't be fooled by the simple exterior showing on the outside of 2nd St, the inside is fabulously decorated, done with a great asian ambiance. This is some of the best Thai food in the city. Love the crab rangoon with a subtle curry flavor...More

We ordered takeout last night and were very disappointed. Our shrimp curry, which was quite tasty, had 6 shrimp in it and about a tablespoon of vegetables. So we ended up paying $2 or so for each shrimp.

When I first moved into my apartment and didn't have cook wear yet, I ordered from Circles at least 2-3 times a week, easy. The spicy chicken pad Thai, calamari (which doesn't travel well) and spring rolls were my favorites. When I met my boyfriend,...More

Positives: appetizers were good; the tamarind sauce was excellent. Negatives: snapper was over cooked and barely edible , curry sauce was tasteless. Nice staff made the experience better.

Always excited to try out a new Thai restaurant. Happy to say Circles wasn't a let down. Upon entry, I immediately noticed how small, but cozy the restaurant was [not necessarily a bad thing]-- As we waited to be seated, we felt as if we...More

Can both do sit down or take out. I usually do the latter as I live in the neighborhood. If you are a vegetarian they have a nice selection of tofu and seitan dishes. Reasonably priced.
