My friends and followers know I eat plenty of Thai food - here in the Chicagoland area, and also on the Big Island. So today, we find two little stripmall joints which had thus far eluded my quest.

This is where we go for anniversaries and special date night dinners. Consistently good meals. Moderate portions, but high quality ingredients. You get whgat you pay for.

My husband loves the combination Thai fried rice. I have not liked any dish I have ordered, nor have our guests. Extremely dry Salmon and fatty tough meat.

Great food with a very nice price! Try their PAD THAI (Thai thin rice noodles with egg, bean sprouts, onions, tofu, crushed peanuts, stir-fried with Pad Thai sauce) and the PANANG CURRY (A delicious sweet curry coconut milk, and sweet pepper topped with fresh kaffir lime leaves). Love this place!

We eat here quite often, food is always delicious. Highly recommend the red curry, pot stickers, and crying tiger. One of our favorite thai restaurants in the area!

Totally underwhelmed and disappointed. The meat was tough and bland in the Yum Nuea, inedible really( Yum Nuea Beef Salad Grilled beef spiced with chili pepper, tomato, onion, cucumber and lettuce in a lime based dressing) Service was OK. Maybe they do best with the vegetarian dishes.
