My co workers said it was the best Thai restaurant in the area. It took us more than 10 minutes to get there from the office BUT it was worth the drive. $9.00 lunch comes with soup (spicy Tomyum), crab rangoon and egg roll. The Pad Se ew was delicious with lots of chicken and very fresh broccoli. Alot of... More

Best Thai in Arlington Heights. The noodles are cooked perfectly and the Chinese dishes are delicious. Try the Pad Thai, the Pad Se-Ew, the Sushi and the Cashew Chicken! Yum! I'm calling right now!

A friend introduced me to Gumrai this week. Can't believe it took three years to find it! What a hidden gem of a value for lunch. Restaurant itself is not overly remarkable, but don't let that fool you. My $9 lunch special netted me soup, 1 ea crab rangoon and spring roll and a MASSIVE plate of Pad Thai. Service... More

My friends and I were in Arlington Heights as a weekend trip into the Chicago area. The first night, we wanted some more exotic food - Thai, Malaysian, Japanese, Indian, Moroccan, Afghani. We were headed to another Thai place, but passed it accidentally when we saw Gumrai and that they had parking next to the restaurant. That was the deciding... More

They seem to have flavorful dishes with traditional seasoning but the atmosphere was pretty bland. Our server was polite & efficient but that was about it. I will probably go somewhere else for my Thai fix next time I'm in town.

This is my favorite Thai place in Arlington Heights. Everything is always good and the service prompt. It's a little annoying that, if the Sushi chef does not come in, they have no sushi that day, but that's my only complaint.

They have a very large selection of lunch specials for only $8. That includes the entree, soup and the appetizer of the day (some days it's two chicken satays, others it's a crab rangoon and a spring roll.., etc.) I highly recommend the Pad Thai and the Cashew Chicken.

The food is bland - just an underseasoned mess. Right down the street is Alt Thai which is much nicer from a food, service and ambience standard.
