I travel and have ate at my share of thai places. I love the food. By far Thong Thai is the best. When I think Of Chicago I think of that hole in the wall and the great food. So the owner is not very socialable...who cares? His wife who does the cooking is the real deal. Your tastebuds will be amazed.

I also have been going here since their first location My Choice(18 years). This is and always has been a ma and pa run restaurant. For those of you who complain about service or add ons then go to an upscale thai place and see what you will be charged for far less. The food is outstanding and the value is here. Another thai restaurant in the neighborhood called the thai elephant has good food and more ambiance but you pay more there for smaller portions and the food is not as good as thong thai. As far as the owners not being friendly, well maybe it's you. When their daughter was married about 12 years ago they gave me an invitation to the wedding. Thats the kind of people they are and how they treat their customers.

I left this place with a bad taste in my mouth. Not from the food (it was decent, but then again I was starving), but from the very rude service and how they charge you extra for the most ridiculous things. Crushed peanuts which is about 10 peanuts - $1. This is the first place I've been to that charges for crushed peanuts. I also ordered a Thai Ice Tea for $2,25 then ordered one to go w/ no ice and they charged me $3.50 for that one! I asked why it cost more and I think he was trying to say it's more because there is no ice and you get more tea when there isn't any ice. You've got to be kidding me. It smells like a dirty bathroom in there too...

I have been a fan for 17 years. I started going to their earlier restaurant called My Choice. The food is always excellent and consistent. I can honestly say that I have never had a bad meal at this place. I now live in the northwest suburbs and will eat at Thong Thai whenever I'm in the city. My favorite is the shrimp curry and chicken curry. It's wonderful! The curry is an actual sauce and not a soup like you see in most Thai restaurants. However, they do offer soups for those who like curry in soup form. Soups are great too. I highly recommend trying this place not for the ambiance but for the great food.

We've been going to this far northwest Chicago thai restaurant for 5 years now... and few things have changed. Excellent food.. panang, paid thai, yellow curry, satay, lardnar, spring rolls, etc. Unexpectedly amazing in fact.. .However the service is lackluster. The other reviewers must have encountered someone else because the owner is an unpleasant and often rude man. His wife however (who does the cooking) is quite the contrary and always a pleasure to encounter. That said... the food is so outstanding - it's worth the dismal setting and unwelcoming owner.

I have been a customer for years, prior to this location. The owner is pleasant and the food is wonderful! An exceptional value for the price.
