Diner Reviews
  • "We really enjoyed our meal at Circles! They like to make their food spicy, so even the medium is hot compared to other restaurants. But, they're also great at filling up your water constantly!"

  • "Circles doesn't look like much from the outside, but the interior is beautiful and intimate. It would make a great date spot. The food was fantastic but be warned- when they say spicy, they mean SPICY!"

  • "Very nice haven in Northern Liberties, worth the walk up Second Street. We were greeted by a welcoming host and promptly seated at a comfortable table with plenty of space to have private conversations. The interior is a soothing Asian style. The bench seating had triangular pillows that were really comfortable. The menu has creative house specials as well as classic Thai dishes. The chef provided a nice amuse bouche to start the evening. The entrees were very well prepared. The meat was perfectly done. Chicken curry (there is a whole page of curries) was excellent. We passed on dessert as the potions were quite large. Overall excellent flavor and balance. Highly recommend."

  • "In my second visit to this Northern Liberties restaurant, I and my two dinner companions once again loved every choice we made. Every item we chose from the menu was vegetarian, and each selection was delectable, especially the "Amazing Stir Fry with Seitan." We'll certainly return."

  • "The dinner Friday evening for a group of 5 was great. Why? Because the food was as good as ever. Never had a bad meal there. Snapper special was excellent as was the coconut soup and the pad thai. The donuts are always a great way to end a meal there. Excellent service as well. Best thai restaurant in Philly - gets my vote."

  • "Everything was delicious. I chose spice level "hot" and I had to eat slowly and take some home with me, but well worth it. I think I need a level of spice between medium and hot but everything was great and our whole party of 6 loved it! I was in Thailand recently and think the food is authentic."

  • "4 of us dined, 2 ordered appetizers, 2 soup. Appetizers & 1 soup arrived, 1 soup did not. No explanation provided. After a while, tried to get waitress's attention. After several tries, finally caught her eye, she nodded and walked away toward kitchen, rather than to our table, which seemed totally inappropriate. Came to table with no soup, stating only that soup would be ready shortly. Others had finished appetizers & soup, entrees were coming shortly, so missing soup was no longer wanted. Please just bring out the entrees. This was done. Soup was removed from bill, but no explanation or apology was made about the missing soup. The food we did receive was very tasty, but the experience left a bad taste in my mouth."

  • "Definitely the most authentic Thai I have found in Philly yet. Food was very flavorful. Love the Pok Pok salad and the tofu curry we ordered. Also the mango sticky rice was good, but it just doesnt compare to eating it in Thailand. Definitely worth a visit anyway!"

  • "My first visit to Circles based on my daughter's recommendation. I was not disappointed. I'm vegan and love Thai. They were very accommodating to our requests. Lemon grass soup was very flavorful with a little kick; Summer rolls were huge, crispy and made perfect with the dipping sauce. Thai red curry w Tofu is my test dish and this was one of the best I've ever had--creamy rich curry flavors. I almost always ask for hot, but ordered medium and it was hot enough! Pad Kaprow (Tofu) was also good -- perfectly cooked. No corkage fee for our beer! Server was nice and got everything out just right otherwise pretty much left us alone. The setting was gorgeous and relaxing."

  • "We were a group of four all here for the first time at this restaurant. The food is not served family style. They served two of us and then it was 15 minutes before the other two meals came out, We asked them to please warm up the first two plates. Another 10 minutes went by and then they came out one dish was colder and the other was something different all together, The manager came out and said she would fix it, back the dishes went again. Five more minutes till they came out warm but still not the original dish ordered. No comp, no apology from the waiter. There are way better Thai restaurants to choose from."

  • "Just took my family to Circles to celebrate my sister's bday and it was great! I LOVE the pumpkin curry dish soooo much! It never disappoints! I was also thrilled to hear that they are bringing back the old menu and I look forward to getting the spring rolls again once I go back...they were delicious! Our server was lovely and overall we had a great experience. My family loved it, too, as it was their first time trying the restaurant. It made for a very enjoyable evening! So glad that's where I picked to go..."
