This family owned restaurant is a gem. The food was fantastic, the room was classy (even though the restaurant is hidden in a strip mall), and the staff is so polite and helpful. After a long day of travel we were so happy to have a great meal that was close to our hotel. We highly recommend this place!

My husband and I dined here together. We were the only people there the entire hour so we were well taken care of. The green curry was very good. We did not care for the chicken wing appetizer. We each enjoyed Tsing Tao beers! They only accept cash for payment so be prepared. B

The only reason this is not ranked higher is because people may not know about it. This truly is authentic Thai cuisine made fresh by the owner (mother). When you talk to the adorable husband who greets everyone, you feel like you are in their home. My husband and I have probably tried the majority of the menu. Everything is flavorful and not "filled" with cabbage like some of the other neighboring restaurants.

The family members who run it are so respectful, friendly and kind. They truly care about the experience and dishes. Some of the dishes are ordered a day in advance because of how elaborate the preparation is. The combination makes us bring our business here time and again.

It's hard not to like eating here. The meals are well prepared with the option for most of the meals' to have "heat" from 0 to 5 stars. The jasmine rice is perfectly done every time. Servers are attentive and polite. We do carry out as often as we eat here. They serve liquor. And, they do not accept credit cards. The prices are a little high particularly when considering that the portions are not that large though the endless supply of rice does help. Sometimes the owner is a little too polite. Quiet and subdued atmosphere. But, those are small things when balanced against the taste of the food. There is no better Thai restaurant we have found in Lake County. A must try if you like Thai.

Trying to find a good Thai restaurant in the far north suburbs has been a challenge. While there are a few places that are worth trying, I am so glad we discovered Thai Gourmet! We've been there a handful of times and have never seen it crowded which I don't understand. The owners are a husband and wife. The husband greets you and takes your order while the wife cooks. You can see the pride from both of them as the wife often comes out to check on how your food was. The only downside is that it's cash only so it's harder to go there on a whim if you don't have cash with you, but it's worth the trip. I feel bad every time I see an empty restaurant when we go. I have to assume we are just eating at unpopular times. Restaurant is clean, food is delicious. Yum!
