This place is fantastic. It’s across the street from my house, I go here a minimum of once a month. Do not be turned off by the simplicity of it. They’re focused on the food, not on fancy word carvings to hang on the walls....More

Some of the best Thai anywhere. Prices are fair, coupons are given, but not usable! Tiny place has always suffered from poor management. Owners speak very poor English, so you never know what and when you food will arrive.

Really delicious and authentic Thai food. Their curries are amazing, the tom kha soup is great, don't miss the "one bite salad." Ordering off of their more "traditional" menu is always an adventure that doesn't disappoint.

Thai Spoon is probably the best of the 4 Thai restaurants in the Lincoln Square area of Chicago. (Sadly none really rate a "very good" score.) The decor is attractive, service was okay, and the food decent, but the big bargain is the 20% discount...More

My husband and I love to eat at Spoon Thai when we visit Chicago. The one bite salad, duck larb and soft shell crab are outstanding. Do not get the usual spring rolls or pad thai when you visit this little gem of a restaurant....More

Best crab Rangoon in the state of Illinois, large servings of Food at a very reasonable price. Very small place off a busy street, has Thai chefs cooking.

Not a fancy place, but I thought the food was fine (and I've eaten not-dumbed-down-for-foreigners food in Thailand). I can recommend the banana blossom salad, fish in garlic and chili and shrimp with tamarind curry.
