We've visited here many times through a couple of ups and downs. I am very pleased to say that it's back on form. Every thing we had was fabulous. Great food, great service and a thorough good night ready had by all.

Great ice tea! Beggars pouches fun appetizers. Pad Thai with any seafood or chicken delicious. Not Spicy but sweetness & lime present mouthfuls of goodness. Atmospherically pleasing. Evolving menu with some old Isabel favorites.

My buddies and I met at this restaurant for a reunion. We had a great time. The food is classic Thai, and very good. The staff was helpful and friendly. It is byob so we brought our own beer and wine which went well. It is near the art museum which is convenient.

I was looking forward to enjoying a lovely Mother's Day dinner on the deck -- it didn't happen! We should have left IMMEDIATELY after the waiter spilled hot soup on one of us. The food was not tasty or appetizing. Two of our hot dishes arrived at the same time, but then I had to wait 10 minutes to receive... More

Then I got the seafood melody for my main and it was ok. Very large portion and very filling. For dessert I had the cheese... More

Took my best friend here for his birthday. We did the fright and bite experience. He loved, loved, loved his birthday present! Our server, Greg was wonderful and very experienced. He was able to give us directions to the penitentiary after our meal. We will be doing this again next year!

Having read mostly great reviews we visited Trio on a Wednesday evening. The place is unpretentious, quiet and nicely decorated. The staff while poorly trained was adequate. Our fried calamari and the pouch appetizer were good. I know good Thai food. The Pad Thai special, Drunken Noodle, Glasses noodles were not good (Overcooked glob). The duck was also poor. The...

Excellent food, mix of thai/american. BYOB, but there are 3 floors of dining and an outdoor deck on the 3rd floor has a great view of downtown Center City,

Trio is consistently good. Fresh food, well prepared and nicely presented. We appreciate the many vegetarian offerings, the BYO policy, the ability to pay by credit card, and the casual, unhurried ambiance. Their various pad Thais are fabulous and we've enjoyed wonderful specials in addition to the standard menu fare. Well worth a visit!

Description
Opened in early 2006 by three friends and former servers; Trio offers Pan-Asian cuisine with a heavy Thai influence, along with the warm service and hospitality that you would expect from a cozy neighborhood BYOB. Trio is located in the Fairmount section of the Philadelphia, and is just blocks from both the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the historic Eastern State Penitentiary.

Housed in a converted row home on the corner of Brown and Taney streets, Trio offers two floors of white tablecloth dining. Additionally, we offer al fresco dining on our second floor deck (weather permitting,) and a unique private dining room located on our third floor is available for banquets and parties
