Extensive menu and large selection of gluten free items. Most in our group are not celiac and they said everything was delicious.

I used to live in Philadelphia and on special occasions went HERE. Their food is delicious, portions were very adequate (I wouldn't say generous but would say definitively filling), and taste was GREAT. Can't wait to go back.

Positives: appetizers were good; the tamarind sauce was excellent. Negatives: snapper was over cooked and barely edible , curry sauce was tasteless. Nice staff made the experience better.

Always excited to try out a new Thai restaurant. Happy to say Circles wasn't a let down. Upon entry, I immediately noticed how small, but cozy the restaurant was [not necessarily a bad thing]-- As we waited to be seated, we felt as if we...More
