The restaurant is set up really cute and the food is pretty good. The prices were okay. Its hard to figure out what is a good food price these days, but I think its a good bang for the buck. I am definitely going again.

This is my favorite place for Thai in Chicago, and it was just loved by my family visiting from out of town. I haven't had pad thai here, so I can't really argue with previous reviews regarding this. But be adventurous and try dishes from their menus that you haven't tried before (yup, ethnic food -- why not learn about foods you haven't had?) -- and you will be richly rewarded! Their red (Panang?) curry is subtly spiced and warm, and their duck salad is amazingly tangy and flavorful. Pretty much everything we've ever had there was lovely. It does get crowded in the evening, and service can be (accordingly) slow, which is why I put it down as "recommended" rather than "highly recommended."

Pros: very tasty food, great value

I read these reviews and also read "siteguy"'s recomendation to order the Pad Thai-extra peanut. Sorry, but I have had better Pad Thai than this. in fact, I have tried MOST Thai restaurants in Chicago and I would never recommend this one. Maybe it is a matter of personal taste. But I have rockin taste buds!
The other dishes we had I was not impressed with either.
I would never eat here again.

Truth be told, I've yet to explore the pastry side of the menu. There are so many interesting dishes to sample on the regular food menu that there's never any room for dessert. The best way to approach the menu is to pick something from each section--there are a few disappointments, and a lot of culinary discoveries to be had. If you're feeling timid, check the house specialties--the seafood combo and catfish with garlic sauce are both excellent. For people in the Edgewater/Uptown area--Thai Pastry delivers!

PROS: food, location, value
CONS: ambience

Beautiful pastries, colorful entrees, concientious and english-speaking staff... The food was wonderful, our group of 12 received fast service and they even took time to explain some of the more exotic dishes. I didn't have the chance to sample the exotic flavors of ice cream, but I can tell its made locally. They have 3 licensed chefs and multiple reviews from local newspapers... I can't give much more information- but they're great and we're going back soon.

Pros: Inexpensive $5-7, Delivery

Cons: Street parking

While this place seems to get mentioned everywhere, I'm still not quite sure what all the fuss is about. In terms of entrees and appetizers, It tends to be crowded a lot and it has just as much, if not less, variety as Thai Avenue, a superior Thai restaurant up the street. Obviously known for its pastries and desserts, I highly recommend the green tea ice cream.

in a pile of thai food . .I would hope it was from the Thai Pastry. That's all I have to say.

Oh yeah . .try the crab rangoon . .it is silly how good they are.

Whoever that fool who posted that this place is overrated, all Im saying is try this and post again:

Pad Thai Tofu - Xtra peanut - Extra Spicy

Take a side of the peanut sauce if you want a dipping treat.

Pros: Inexpensive, Extremely Scrumptious, 0-60 In under 5

Cons: BYOB :(

I heard that the chef who was responsible for giving this restaurant such rave reviews no longer is employed here. When I ate here I was so dissapointed after hearing so many great things about it. Every single thing I ate here was bland and overall lacking in flavor. I really wanted to like this place but think it is getting better reviews than it deserves. And the "pastries" are nasty!!!! It is like eating play-doh.

This place has good food & dessert. The place is great for a date... if it's not crowded. I'd order take-outs on Friday nights, that's when it gets quite crowded.

I read in different newspapers that the food here was surprisingly good. This restaurant did not disappoint. Fresh ingredients, affordable, pleasant atmosphere, and the best Pad See Eiw in town. I have tried this dish at several restaurants and this is by far the best.

As a long time fan of Thai food (even before it became trendy) and recently having spent quite a while in Thailand, I can attest to the fact that Thai Pastry is authentic Thai food at its best. Both the food and service is excellent, and the price is right. For starters, the tom yom koong soup is excellent. I also LOVE the shrimp roll appetizer and the mini egg rolls (ok, so this one is not very Thai, but it is yummy). For those who like it spicy, I highly recommend the Red Curry with Chicken entree. Thai Pastry also delivers, so you can enjoy it at home (just be patient with the person on the other end of the phone, who may not speak the most fluent English).

We started with the thai spring rolls. They didn't taste fresh and were swimming in a funny tasting sweet and sour sauce. We were really hungry and looking forward to the next course...which was someone elses order (even though I repeated the order twice, our waitress got it wrong) How can you make a bad Pad Thai? They must have an old family secret!!! It was overcooked with little taste.The quality of the chicken in another dish we ordered was inedible. To make matters worse......we all felt sick when we got home..though still hungry because there wasn't a SINGLE dish ANY of us liked!!! We are all big thai food fans and frequent most of the Chicago thai restaurants..from upscale to simple neighborhood ones. THIS WAS BY FAR THE WORST THAI RESTAURANT I HAVE EVER BEEN TOO....maybe even the worst restaurant...period!

Editorial from

By now, Thai cuisine isn't exotic to most diners. Still, Uptown's Thai Pastry & Restaurant manages to make it seem new again. Sure, they serve all the usual suspects---pad thai, satay, chicken coconut soup---and they do them very well, but…
