After getting shut out of several of the more popular iconic pizza joints on Friday night, we stopped in to Amarit's...and we were not disappointed. Some of the best Thai I have had. Pad Ped in particular.

Hubs and I had been out walking all day. We were headed back to the "L" when we saw this restaurant, in the shadows. We figured it would be nice to try something "off the beaten path". We arrived around 7pm on a Saturday. So it wasn't super busy. Staff was very friendly. We ordered several different sushis and soup/salad.... More

Close to our hotel and recommended by the concierge. Not too pricey. Food on the bland side. Used the hot chili paste a lot. Nice ambience and decent service.

The pineapple fried rice with shrimp and chicken not only tasted good, but the presentation was beautiful. Using the pieapple rind as a bowl looked pretty and made use of a throw away item. I would order this again.

Decided to do take out. Food was made quickly and ready for pickup within 10 minutes. Pad Thai was tasteless, wouldn't order again.

I ordered the Fried Bean Curd appetizer. It had a good texture, but the dipping sauce really needed the enhancement of the pepper and soy sauce on the table. For the main course, I ordered the Mixed Vegetables. There was a nice variety but the dish was unevenly warm. Also, I was expecting the vegetables to be brighter in appearance.... More

The food was great, I got the fried rice and orange chicken and i preferred the fried rice. My parents got the salmon with white rice and while the sauce was a little spicy the meal was generally enjoyable. The restaurant was also clean. Their sushi is also very good.

Good "Thai" food. The four of us had a variety of dishes: spicy beef (watch the chili sauce as it builds) which was tender and flavorful; tom yum soup which was flavorful and NOT sweet; lemon grass seafood soup (decent price peformance, all seafood was good); ginger chicken (much too sweet and good flavors); and tasty mild yellow curry; with...

I don't usually care for Thai food, because cilantro. But the chicken satay was wonderful, as were the soups we had - chicken noodle, and shrimp wanton. The servings were generous, and perfect, as we'd had a large lunch. The atmosphere is very quit and comfortable; the service friendly.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
