Just when I thought I'd found all the Thai joints in the pan-Asian sprawl that is Vernon Hills - here's a little hole in the strip mall....so I tried the lunch buffet. Not cheap at $10.95, a sign proclaims at the door, "no credit cards under $10 purchase!". Off to a rolling start, I am served a glass of ice... More

Have been coming to Tasty Thai for years. Their Tom Kar soup is amazing! Can't go wrong with their Lad Nar Noodles with chicken. Their lunch buffets are good and quite reasonably priced. Tasty Thai is consistently good.

I was looking for soup on a snowy day while my husband was looking for more of a meal. We decided on Thai and were pleasantly surprised to find a buffet. Good selection of dishes including pad Thai and coconut curry. The first set of crab ragoons were a bit overlooked but the second batch was perfect. Good tom yum... More

I have spicy red curry, substituted with vegetables and tofu. The tofu was in too big of pieces for me and was squishy. I feel as if it was cooked longer or different they could significantly improve the texture of the tofu. But it wasn't bad. You can substitute meat in any dish for tofu and or vegetables. All the...

Let me start by saying that I am an avid Thai food eater. It is my favorite cuisine. I fell in love with Thai food while living in the SF Bay Area and I've been eating it for over 25 years. I've eaten at many Thai restaurants around the country. The food at Tasty Thai is not authentic Thai food.... More

May be this has got to do with our ordering of dishes, but food was just OK for us though we had asked for food to be extra spicy. Thankfully, the hot sauce and the dry chilli peppers saved the day. We ordered egg rolls, that fried rice with chicken and pan fried noodles with chicken-which stood out. To be... More

My wife and I decided to stop here for dinner. The interior is a bit blah and nothing exciting. We started off with an order of egg rolls that were just ok. For our main course we ordered two different beef dishes. The food was pretty sub-par. We both thought that the meat was not tender and that the food... More

"Sam" the owner runs a great show. Excellent Thai curries and specialty dishes, a lunch buffet, good presence and most of all superb value. It's the only local Thai place I go to.

Had the pad Thai which was dry and bland. This was a delivery order and was highly recommended by the hotel staff so perhaps it was a bad day, but my experience was not great. (Not to mention it took longer than 45 minutes to deliver the food).

This quiet little restaurant has some of the best Thai food around. The service is fast and the food freshly made. We go a few times a month and have never been disappointed. Pad Thai with chicken, the vegetable dishes and the tea are wonderful. You can get spicy or not. Ask for recommendations and they will help you out.
