After very many years Thai Sookdee is gone. It had been going slow for many years and had not updated to the new younger crowd nor kept up with all the new Asian restaurants in Evanston I did not see a relocation address.

We hardly ever eat at the restaurant, but this is our favorite place to 'order out' Thai food. Ka Prao Squid is excellent! Really we love all of their dishes.

I visit Evanston a couple of times a year and Thai Sookdee was always a treat. It has always had a wide ranging menu with many options. I had the mango curry, good, but the flavors were surprisingly muted. Satay also lacked flavor. Service is great, fast and friendly. Prices are quite reasonable.

This is my go to Thai place in Evanston. Huge menu, but everything is good. Tom Yum soup is my favorite. Also really like the Basil Fried Rice and pot stickers. Service is friendly. Nice atmosphere. Wide open dining room, so it never feels crowded. Reasonable prices.

I am a fan of Thi Sook Dee. Have been a customer for 10 years. Almost always a table available. Great Thi food, great service and very reasonable prices. Consistent food quality. Last visit I was with family and it was good as always.

Every time I come to Evanston I make a point of eating here. I have the Tom Yum and something different from the menu. I have never been disappointed. The Tom Yum is the best I've ever had and I have loved every other dish so far. The restaurant is sleepy in the early evening but picks up around 7-8pm.... More

There are several Thai restaurants in Evanston. This is one of the best. Extensive menu, well prepared food. Haven't had anything we didn't at least like—a matter of individual taste—and much of it is delightful. They seem to stick close to the traditional, rather than attempting fusion cuisine. Nothing wrong with fusion, but our tastes tend more toward the traditional.... More

My wife and I came here very recently, and overall enjoyed our meal very much. My Tom Kha soup was very good, and the Massaman curry I ordered was very tasty. The only thing causing me to not rate it 5 stars, was it took nearly 30 minutes for my wife's curry to be brought out, after mine had been... More
