We found this place on google and did not expect much, honestly. But since we were looking for Asian, decided to come. First, place looks really nice. Full house, good service and the food was amazing! My wife had a scallop Thai, and me a Chinese Sea Food... Both great. Dessert, we tried a banana cheesecake, which was delicious! Presentation of all 3 was really appealing! Recommend to try this place.

FOOD POISONING I went there with my wife during a brief stay in Chicago. I ordered Pad Thai (one of their specialty, typically mild in most restaurants). The pad thai were incredibly spicy (and believe me I can eat more spicy than my wife coming from the SiChuan region in China...). I asked for a change with a yellow curry after eating a few spoons. I don't know if they purposely made the Pad Thai very spicy to hide the taste of rancid and rotten chicken but that's my guess! I got sick going back home and could not sleep all night because of food poisoning ! DO NOT EAT THERE !

Service was good but it was ok - nothing crazy authentic at all. Ambience was nice. It's a decent date night kinda place but if you are looking for Thai cuisines then stay away from it.

Cool location right in the heart of everything. Food and service are both solid. I usually get the Beef & Broccoli, which is a good-sized portion and a very classic dish. The last time I visited, I did the "Chef's Choice" create-your-own stir-fry where you pick the sauce and type of protein that you wanted and the chef picks the veggies. It was excellent. The decor is very Pan-Asian inspired, too.

The stir fry bar is amazing! Everything was so fresh. Service was prompt and our waitress Trinadi was very friendly, helpful and answered all of our questions. We will definitely be back again!

Great food, though slightly overpriced for the portions and service. Tries to push itself off as "fine dining" but it's really a mid-fare dining establishment with mid-fare menu items. Can get the same meal elsewhere (Flat Top Grill, for instance) for much cheaper and with the same quality of service. Visit if you want to spend more money then it's worth, and you like the atmosphere.

Decent food the build your own stir fry is the way to go. If you are into ginger beer they have a decent one. This is a fine place for lunch and is a lettuce entertain you restaurant so you can use gift cards.
