Somewhat authentic Thai from what I can tell. But these people need to seriously change the cooking oil in their deep fryer. And a bit pricey considering the portions. I gave them a chance but was pretty disappointed on both visits.

Pros: Authentic...BYOB

The place is clean and you can bring your own drink. Very cool! However, Thai food is know for a lot of different sweet and sour sauces/curries. All the dishes I tried were a lot more sweet, than a good combination of the both. I will keep on searching for the real thing.

I ordered my food to pick up but it wasn't ready when I was told it would be. Had to wait 10 more minutes, which annoyed me. The food itself wasn't bad, just OK.

Best Thai I've found since moving back to the City. Very authentic; many unusual dishes and most very good. Also, if you like spice, you don't have to beg here to give you a spicy dish. Did have one dish I wouldn't recommend -- the whole fish. Otherwise, be adventurous and enjoy. BYOB.

Pros: Unusual authentic Thai Dishes, as well as the traditional stuff. Spicy without asking.

Cons: Whole fish not very good.

My friend and I decided to try a new thai place, and were extremely disapponted in Thai Spoon. The overpriced eggrolls looked like mini appetizers-- really small. The chicken fried rice I ordered was so mushy, with boiled chicken and no vegetables. I had 3 bites and took it out to the dumpster. The meal which consisted of fried rice and eggrolls was just under 20 bucks!! And the woman behind the counter was mean. I should call and complain, but instead of a just getting a credit at some place I would never eat at again, I decided to tell Chicagoland about it.

We had to take two trains to get here, but it was well worth it. The Thai food was out of this world. I had fried tofu appetizer with side of sweet and sour peanut sauce and wife had shrimp egg rolls. For mains, I had red curry, just the right spice. Wife had Yum Woonsen salad, which was a tad too spicey for her. I helped her with it, and it was awesome, a little hot, but didn't cause me to break out into a sweat. Make the trip out to this place, simply great Thai food!

In Short
While Spoon Thai does a great deal of takeout and delivery, the atmosphere is pleasant for dine-in. Stick to Thai specialties for a first-class meal. Top appetizers include shrimp in a blanket--plump, skewered shrimp…
