The menu was confusing with too many choices that all sounded the same. Waitress was not helpful and she took lengthy orders from the other table prior to turning our order into the kitchen. We were sorry we didn't order different things--to share and compare. We ordered a lunch special of salmon. We asked for the salmon to be cooked... More

The food here is typically good—I’ve been quite a few times because it's right near my place. Sometimes it’s better than other times but it’s always decent if not really good. I don’t go here too often since they did away with their loyalty card system, the portions are on the small side for a U.S. Thai restaurant and the... More

We came here on a whim, after a nearby Italian restaurant we had planned on turned out to be closed on Sundays. Very glad we ended up at Erawan! I am a Pad Thai buff, and this dish was perfect. My fiancé had the green curry, and he really enjoyed it. For dessert we shared coconut ice cream. It came... More

We were in town for the weekend hanging out with friends and decided on Erawan for dinner. We were greeted and seated within minutes of arriving even with a party of 7. The place was a little busy but not packed by any means. Before ordering we requested separate checks because some of us were paying with credit cards and... More

Needed a place near the Shakespeare Theater and this was it. Food was good but not memorable. Pretty standard Thai experience. The Masaman curry was the best dish of the night. The Drunken Noodles were a bit fishy for my taste. Would go again but it's not a destination. They do have an early dinner 3-course special which is a... More

I had lunch her the other day with a friend. We both really enjoyed our meals. I had green curry with chicken. The portion was generous and the flavor was spot on. We will definitely be back.

3 of us went here on a Sunday night and it was totally packed and there was only 1 waitress! We waited for 35 minutes to get our food and then told them we needed to get it to go because we were running late. We waited 10 more minutes and finally got it! AND it was some of the... More

Erawan Thai Cuisine has been a Thai standby for years. And years. The food is well prepared, and they again offer brown rice as an option after discontinuing that availability for a while. But the menu, though reliable, is beginning to get a bit tired. As is the service. Still an excellent BYOB value, however.

Went there late Sunday evening for a dinner to-go. Very friendly staff and the order was delivered in under 10 minutes! Chose the veg.style Drunken Noodles. As someone else noted here on TripAdvisor - a little oily, but good taste and hot as I like it.
