Cheap thai food - tastes ok. Not very authentic but still a decent bang for the buck. I recommend the Tom Yum soup.

I had Thai chicken, it was pretty good. Very large portions, had enough for lunch the next day. Semi decent price and fast service. One of these days I plan to go back, just haven't had the time.

I was lured into Penny's by the promise of gyoza and ramen, which is incredibly difficult to find in Chicago. My first mistake: going to an Americanized Thai place for Japanese food. The gyoza was deep fried, not pan seared as it should be, and the ramen was overflowing with mediocre noodles and random bits of sprouts and pickled bamboo all mixed in. Now, I can understand that the people making the ramen have probably never actually seen a bowl of Japanese ramen, but c'mont, can't you give me something? Some mushrooms, a decent broth, something that stands out and would make me want to order the dish again? Nope. No can do. I left feeling disappointed and mad at myself for getting my hopes up.

Aside from that bad experience, I did eat there one other time and ordered Thai food. It was pretty good. The Thai coffee was also delicious. Just do yourself a favor and don't order the ramen or gyoza.

Nice environment. Fast. Fresh. Cheap. A great deal. One location has BYOB - others have alcohol. No delivery but can call ahead and come for pick-up 10 minutes later. Highly recommend.

Editorial from

In Short
Warm wood tones and the aromas of ginger and curry greet patrons at the door. A small waiting area is rarely enough space for the line of young locals who often spill onto the sidewalk. The menu easily surfs through…
