Delicious Thai food. This was our favorite restaurant in DeKalb. Chicken Satay was a terrific appetizer. The chicken pad thai was the best I have eaten and the portions were huge. Highly recommend!

I took our college-aged son out to dinner here last night. Unremarkable appearance from the street, but like they say, appearances can be deceiving. We had very attentive wait staff from the time we came in -- 2 waitresses & they both took the time to check on all the diners. My son (who is just back from a college-related... More

If you want tasty Thai food, this is the place to go. Always delicious. It is quaint right in downtown. Everything seems fresh there, great Thai tea too.

I take all of my visitors and employees to the Thai Pavilion. I must have been there over 10 times by now. It's not particularly fancy, but the food is good and reliable. When I go there, I know that what I'm going to get is good (which in DeKalb is not that easy), cheaply priced (about 12$ for a... More

On a college visit we stopped for a bite after the tour. Prices were pretty average for the area and portions were large. (DD actually got 3 meals out of her order.) We liked the curry fried rice and the basil beef. While we did order "hot" our meals were less than spicy for the most part. My only concern... More

Usually get carry out or delivery. Dining there has never been bad...very good service!! Good amount of food for the price (dine-in or delivery) If you want it" Thai Spicy", tell them...they tend to "gringo" it down some.

I always get the same dish at every Thai place I go. Green curry is my favorite and at Thai Pavilion it was very good. A nice helping of veggies in a big bowl of green curry, sweet with coconut milk with a nice sized side of white rice. We also got the appetizer platter which had a large variety... More

The Thai Pavilion has a neat space, good food and perfectly reasonable prices. Thai Pepper Steak lunch special is a solid choice with rice, soup and egg roll all included in the package. Two people can get in and out for around $20 - and you will be so full. Great choice!

We had the fried leek dumplings, cucumber salad and mango chicken. I didn't even eat any rice just the crunchy tender and sweet mango chicken and the delicious cucumber salad. The serving is enough for two.
