The Thai Grill
Posted by Patty O'M. on 04/18/2011
Some things in life should not be repeated. If you can help it, avoid a first trip to Thai Grill. The food was anything but authentic, and tasted as if it had been prepared by someone trained in Chinese cooking, not Thai cuisine. The noodles were soggy, indistinct blobs, and the vegetables in some of the dishes were not crisp. Fried foods were overly oily, and appeared to have been cooked in oil that was not hot enough. Food was quick to arrive, but server was slow with the check. Overall, our meal was an unpleasant experience that could not even be justified by the relatively modest cost of the dishes.

My wife and I dine here whenever we have an excuse to go into the city. The service is quick, polite, and very pleasant, although at times it's better to point at the menu (due to language barrier). the Garlic Chicken is superb. No subtle garlic flavor here, chicken cooked to perfection with veggies steamed just right. The Sunrise Fried rice includes a meat option, and is so delicately flavored it remains a fond memory long after the meal is over. Cantonese-style fried rice usually tastes so heavy by comparison the French influence is obvious. Many other dishes tease the palate and taste buds with their delicate aromas and subtle flavors. they certainly have an expertly trained kitchen staff. The prices can't be beat- we usually order 3 entrees so we have leftovers, plus an appetizer and drinks, and the bill never reaches $20. Not to be missed!

I moved north a few months ago after living in Lincoln Park and Lakeview and finding great food for delivery up here is not happening. I suppose this food would have been fine and cheap when I was in college - not now. It was so bland - and I asked for it spicy. spring rolls - no taste and the wraps were wrapped around many times and tasted like flour - sauce was a big thick glob pad thai - no flavor - no veggies - a square of noodles red curry - probably the best of the bunch but nothing to scream about, vegetables tasted like frozen with a few carrots thrown in pad kee moo - meat and noodles, glob - very few veggies in it I won't order from here again

this is my favorite Thai restaurant in Chicago ! conveniently located in the Sovereign apartment building the atmosphere is laid back and "casual comfy" the food is great ! I have never had a bad meal there and the portions and prices are just right too !
