This is honestly the best Thai place around! The food is always consistently good & the atmosphere is nice, quiet, relaxing, & somewhat romantic in the evening. Definitely a 5 star rating!

Love going here. Uually seated right away. The food is fresh and clean tasting. No heavy sauces. Even the Pad Thai is authentic and I love it. The Seafood & rice dish is a little extra but the Pineapple Seafood dish is all cooked to tenderness but not overcooked. LOVE it! miscellaneous soups for appetizers and main dishes are wonderful,...

Best Thai food in the area. Service slightly slower times. Smaller place but typically seats are available. Worth a visit and revisit. Reasonable prices. Great food.

This family owned restaurant is our favorite for business lunches and casual eats, when ever we are in Roundlake. Right from Thai ice tea to different curry options and fried rice, it's always simple and delicious. We always end up going back.

I didn't really care for the ambiance or service. This place had been there for awhile so I thought I'd try it out. I will say that it's nicely priced and the food is ok. But I probably won't return.

We like the green peapod, the food is delicious. Although when they are busy prepare to wait. We were there for a little over an hour and 40 minutes. For me that is too long to sit in a restaurant, especially with kids. I think the best time to come is between lunch and dinner.

Love the chicken pad Thai. I've tried chicken pad Thai at popular restaurant chains and I have to say that Green Pea Pod is the best!

A friend ordered the chicken salad and while I usually dislike it, this was unlike any chicken salad I have ever seen--finely ground chicken in lime juice with greens, no mayo--absolutely delicious! The grilled shrimp were good, too. (great sauce!) Nice to have interesting, healthy options with some unusual flavor combos.

Thank ChicaWi
