This Thai restaurant has a massive menu with a ton of choices to delight your taste buds. All the food we had was tasty and fresh. Most of it seemed pretty healthy to boot. Prices are quite reasonable, the service is great, and the food came out quickly. The restaurant is pretty plain but clean and comfortable. Bring your own... More

Call ahead, they got shockingly busy after 8pm on Saturday night. Highlights: BYOB!, Pineapple Fried Rice served in an actual Pineapple, Mango Sticky Rice served in a Mango, fresh coconut water served in an actual coconut. It's all gimmicky, but delicious and the no-frills decor makes it feel authentic! Also, beware that the Northen Thai Sausage is VERY VERY SPICY!!!!

This is the most authentic Thai restaurant we found so far in Chicago. Sauces are very tasty and special. We were happy with all food we ordered : Grilled pork with tamarind sauce, whole calamari, som tum, tom yum, sticky rice and mango.

We loved the food here. Venture past the common Thai dishes found in America and you will be rewarded. They burst with flavor!

The food here was great! Flavors were spot on and appetizers were tasty. The carry out service could be improved slightly as the food wasn't ready when I was told it would be.

Our long-time go to choice for Thai food closed. So we have had to try to find a new choice. We think we have found this in Sticky Rice. Sticky Rice is not your "average" Thai restaurant as, in addition to your usual Lard Nar, Pad Thai and so forth, they also serve "unique" Northern Thai dishes. With respect to... More

We've been to several Thai places in Lincoln square & decided to try this place. Started out with our usual spring roll in plum sauce & it didn't disappoint. Main course was Pad Kee Mow (Wide rice noodle stir fried with bamboo shoot, bell pepper, tomato, carrot, and basil)... I copied that. Nice that they asked how hot we wanted... More

I went there with my family. We had a 11 month old baby with us. We had a good time and food there. Here are my observations: 1. Location: On the main street. 2. Parking: The restaurant does not have a designated parking place. You will have to find a parking space on your own. Don't worry, there are lots... More

Great place in Chicago for authentic and very delicious Northern Thai food at reasonable prices. The staff is friendly and courteous. One of the only places in Chicago that I have been able to find my favorite Thai dessert food, khanom krok! I am a big fan of their khoa soi - Chiang Mai style!!! Their menu is big, there... More
