I love authentic Thai food. I've been to Thailand numerous times and have found a few places in the US that remind me of there. PS Bankok is one of them. I have been been going to PS Bangkok for years, And since I moved from Chicago to California every time I come back I make it a special trip to go to PS Bangkok. I can't find anything I dislike of this restaurant. I rarely rate restaurants but I want this restaurant to stay around for 30 more years, So I get to go there every time I come back to Chicago!

I have been to ps bangkok three times now and always received excellent food and service. The atmosphere is relaxed and the background music is quiet enough to have a normal conversation (not like in other places in that area). I can only recommend trying it out, I love their beef salad. Especially for people who like eating spicy. The restaurant offers a very wide range of spicy.

We are long-time customers of PS Bangkok, and have found that the quality has not declined over all these years--and in the case of some dishes has actually improved. Sue, the owner and order-taker, always points you in the direction of the best dishes to have that evening and is a very sociable hostess for the restaurant--if you prefer the food more or less spicy, she will readily oblige. As appetizers, we especially like the curried fish cakes and steamed dumplings (a kind of rice flour crepes), as well as the spicy pork nam sod as salad; for entrees, we like the panang curry with beef and the spicy green curry with coconut milk and shrimp; and, for dessert, go with the sticky rice with mango or the sweet potato custard.

While the old school decor is appealing at times it also feels very dated. Hostess is friendly but at the same time not accurate with orders, happened on more than one occasion. If you ask to fix something they messed up, let's say her friendliness & graceful charm is out of the window. Anyhow giving her the benefit of doubt & the awesome food they serve draws me bk there. I often just order it in. Plus you get miles to dine here if you are part of rewardsnetwork.com. Can't go wrong there!

this is definetly one of the best thai restaurants in the city (second only to arun's). my husband and i were always looking for a great thai restaurant and have eaten at countless mom and pop thai restaurants all over the city. we have finally found the most authentic and tastiest thai food. the best thing about this place is that they make their curry pastes and sauces from scratch so they can easily accomodate vegetarians (like my husband). also, we love our food super, super spicy and the owner/chef can definetly make a killer spicy dish. give this place a try, you won't regret it. the panang curry and pad kee mow are a must!

the sun-times, zagat, chicago magazine all say that this retaurant sets the standard for thai food. it has been around the lakeview neighborhood since 1983. this restaurant does not attribute to the pan-asia bland upscale milieu. PS. Bangkok actually revels in premier ingredients that create food cooked with aromatic, complex, and delicious flavors. you can expect an elegant dining area with thai art, statues, and wood walls as you are served an array of appetizers that range from a chicken satay or shrimp shumai topped with grilled garlic to more adventurous delicacies like banana leaves and fried coconut in the 'bite size delight'. the sunday buffet is glorious as almost every aspect of the menu is showcased. it can overwhelm you, but your belly will be satisfied. try the crunchy pad see ew with beef or chicken. it is a sweet and smoky dish with meat cooked tender with chinese vegentables. sea food is also a highly recommended grilled or curried. in addition, almost all dishes can be cooked in vegetarian form if you do not eat meat, poultry, or seafood, there is always an exquisite alternative usually with tofu. i have a soft spot for this establishment because i seek high quality Asian-Pacific cuisine as a Filipino chef myself and have been celebrating family functions and fulfilling my food cravings here since the early 90's. please support ths family-owned business as it continues to forge a genuine gourmet thai culinary experience with an affordable price.

Expect a menu that is similar to almost all Thai restaurant menus that you don`t want to go to. It is just another Thai commodity. Service was poor as I received my dinner be - fore my wife. My wife requested that she receive her peanut sauce on the side, instead in came as it was advertised - on top if the dish. When she received her entree a second time, it was very cold. Save the fact that the chef and I pre - sume owner came by to make sure we were satisfied, I would say that this was a painful choice on a whim. I understand that they used to have a Chicago Magazine restaurant review. I guess "used to" is one reason why we won`t be coming back again at anytime. Or maybe they received the review before the big Thai restaurant explosion of a few years ago when it was still the only game in town.
