I am fond of drinking tea and that's the reason why I'm a fan of this shop. They sell quality teas and the blends are amazing.

We love Thai Linda. You can really tell that all of the ingredients are fresh and of high quality. The vegetables, in particular, are beautifully cooked--their flavors and textures come through well. An excellent place for vegetarians, too. The veggie dumplings and veggie wonton soup are awesome! The service is always attentive and kind. They do get backed up for takeout sometimes--I think because Roscoe Village is short on good takeout places--but it's worth being patient for.

I just came out from the worst restaurant experience I have ever had.
I went with 2 of my friends to Thai "Linda" Cafe.
First we ordered crab rangoon, there was only celery and cream cheese rangoon then actually crab.
Then we ordered sweet and sour chicken, eggplant and sweet basil with Pine nuts and schrimp, and finally Pad thai with beef.

Meal 1:
As soon as she put the chicken in her mouth, she had to through it back out, disgusted. It wasn't cooked at all, we should have known when we saw the meal that something wasn't right, the chicken looked slimy, there were way too much sauce, kind of like a cover up...

Meal 2:
The Shrimps were still blue. We sent it back to the Kitchen, but still when it came back it was still uncooked. So I decided to just eat the eggplants. But as soon as I bite in it, I could only taste the oil, I could just feel th oil coming out of those eggplants.. Urg...We asked the waitress to bring both meal back to the Kitchen.

Meal 3 was fine.

When 2 out of 3 meals are bad, you expect from your waitress or the manager of the restaurant to do something about your bill, at least taking off the two meals.

In addition to the horrible experience, our waitress wanted to make us you pay for the whole dinner, we tried to make her understand that we were not going to pay for a meal that was not close to be right.

Instead of trying to make our horrible experience turn into a "sorry, our mistake, we want you to come back", she made us even more unsatisfied with this restaurant and the management, and that's why I decided to write a review...

For your sake, dear Thai food lover, I would definitely NOT recommend Thai "Linda" Cafe.
Bad Food, Bad Service.

Cons: the food, the attitude of the personal

I consider myself to be somewhat of a Thai food snob -- my parents took me to my first Thai restaurant when I was only seven years old, so I've had a long time in training. I have a few favorite Thai restaurants scattered throughout the country, and Thai Linda tops my list.

The restaurant is small, but not too small, and the decor is pleasant and low-key. They do a big carry-out business, but I would suggest dining in, as I think some of the high quality of the food is lost in the to-go translation.

They have an extensive menu and excel at their curry dishes as well as Pad Thai and Pad Woon Sen. They offer a great selection of soups and salads as well. Their desserts, especially the Thai custard, are delicious.

Thai Linda is the perfect Thai restaurant. The service is excellent and the food is fabulous!

Arun's notwithstanding, Thai Linda is a neighborhood Thai restaurant that is heads above similar places in town. Tofu satay--grilled with a delicious and savory marinade--and vegatarian dumplings are unique appetizers you won't find at most places, and certainly not done so well. Beef or shrimp with Basil is delicious. Most dishes are much more delicately spiced and complex in comparison to the more well-known north side and downtown moderately-priced spots.

I have been here a few times and feel this is the standard in which other Thai places need to beat. The curry dishes are really, REALLY good. The Pad Thai is not super duper, but if it's what you like, then you shouldn't be disappointed. Get some Jasmine tea and make the meal complete. It's in a good location to start the night in Roscoe Village.

Thai Linda has become one of my standbys for Thai food. The dishes are excellent (especially their curries) and reasonably priced. The wait staff is friendly and helpful. This is a small, neighborhood restaurant that always delivers a good meal.
