    We ate, or should I say, attempted to eat at this restaurant for the first - and last - time yesterday, and it was a huge disappointment. So bad, in fact, that I cannot honestly remember worse food in my almost 20 years as a Chicago resident. Dismayed, I looked up the establishment online only to find, to my greatest surprise, three stellar reviews preceding mine. I do not know what to make of it, as someone mentioned the freshness of the food. Ours was anything but - the spring rolls tasted like mold, and looked like they were prepared a week ago. ALL of the vegetables were in fact so old, they were BROWN around the edges, not to mention completely wilted. The biggest surprise yet was the classic Pad Thai that tasted like bleach. It was completely inedible. The service was full of smiles, but lacked in everything else - no one checked to make sure we even needed anything, appetizer plates were not cleared, some water was spilled and we had to clean it up ourselves etc. This place, in my opinion, should be avoided like the plague. This is the first time I have written a negative restaurant review, and I am going to make a complaint with the Department of Public Health.

    This hidden jewel has the best Thai food I have ever tasted. Also, the atmosphere is great - warm but not too dark, homey but clean. Prices are very reasonable - we get dinner for two with appetizers and Thai iced tea for well under thirty bucks. I think they do a bang up take out business (since the Roscoe Village neighborhood gentrified to lots of yuppies who eat in at home, so it's never crowded).

    My favorites are the Pineapple Curry and the Phad See Ew noodles. There are a lot of choices for making your dishes how you like them - beef, chicken, tofu, whatever.

    We try to patronize this restaurant at least three times a month - we want it to stay and succeed! 8.5 out of 10 overall (service is a little weak, consistency in seasoning of same dishes is a little variable).
