one of the great things about this place is that they have a looong list of menu offerings so you can come back here a dozen times along or with large groups and you can always have something new. but for me, i always go for their chicken pad thai which is very, very good. also love their tom yum which is always served piping hot and of course their crispy spring rolls. this is one of the thai places that really delivers in this city and their prices are not bad too.

To me, there are very few places in Chicago that offer ""good"" Thai cuisine. Some places I've seen offer you a box of noodles or rice, throw in some meat and vegetables and sauce (along with a almost a half a cup of oil), and them calling it Thai food. It's NOT the case with this place. I've been going here since 98 when I was taking class from the ""Martial Arts"" school down the street and the ""grandmaster"" took us all to lunch as part of our ""training"" (notice the "" "" around the words; I don't consider them a ""Martial Arts school"" anymore, but that's another review). Anyway, since then I've always considered this place to be the standard for all Thai restaurants to follow. They just recently went through some remodeling and now the place looks better than before with new tabels and decor. The food though is still the same as I had it almost 9 years ago. Everything is good here, but I usually go for my favorites (chicken satay, spring roll, Tom Yum soup, Pad Thai, and/or beef Pad Si-ew). It is convient to get to as well being right at the Western brown line station and a metered parking lot accross the street. Don't let the exterior of the place fool you; once you step into the place, be ready to experience what Thai cuisine is all about.

The food at this restaurant can be spicy for certain patrons who are not exposed to eating spicy. However, if you inform the waiter beforehand, it could be accommodated. Food, overall, is good but service at times could be slow. The wait staff is friendly.

Everyone tries the Tiger Cry - and it does not disappoint. The staff is great and I always enjoy Opart. They get busy on weekends, so if your are looking for quiet, get take out or find a less popular restaurant.\n\nBelieve me, you will not find better Thai in Chicago (though Sticky Rice use to be pretty tasty). BTW, if you are ever in Thailand, try their restaurant ""Chicago"".\n\nHappy eating!

although a bit far from downtown but worth the trip. we will definitely come back. the hot and sour soup was fabulous, the curry and pad thai were also great. we enjoyed eating here. The wine store 2 stores down also has a friendly owner that gives free advise on what wine to choose.

This place is in a location where you have PLENTY of thai places to choose from. Overall, I'd say this one has the best and most authentic food. Unfortunately, the service is TERRIBLE. The people who work there are for the most part unhelpful, and several are downright rude. It almost seems like they don't even care if you give them your business or not. My advice: don't miss out on the great food, but get it to go.
