First of all, Trio is no longer at 2624 Brown St., and has moved to 2601 Pennsylvania Ave. This should be updated on TripAdvisor, asap. The next thing to mention is that the Thai menu is still in place and everything offered and prepared there...More

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.

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
