Prices are very reasonable. They did well on the sole line entree, but their selection of noodles was very underwhelming. In addition, it seemed that every dish had some watery taste to it. I would only go back if I really needed to eat something.

My go-to dish is the spicy basil chicken. It is very good. My only issue is that they do not provide enough rice with the dish. As a result, I have to order extra rice which costs approximately $1.50 extra. Some of the staff are nice, especially the waiter, but some of the waitresses, while not mean, aren't overly friendly.

Arrived and realized it's layout is like a long rail car. They must have had trouble with heat because there were two space heaters being used and it was still chilly. That also might be why there were only a couple of other tables than ours. Food was good, had tea, no drinks but would have usually and service was good. I would return if in the mood for Thai or sushi but wouldn't go out of my way, per se.

First time here and my out of town guests and my kids all loved it! We will definitely be back. The Coconut Curry Shrimp, shrimp dumplings, and pad see eiw are a must!

They nickel and dime you on too much. They charged us for teriyaki sauce to put on our noodles. They wanted to charge me for a 2nd ice tea refill but backed off when I objected. We won’t be back.

My wife started with the house salad, I a fresh spring roll. The salad was good. The spring roll was different than I expected, but still was very good. The two fish dishes we had were enjoyed. I also enjoyed a ginger martini.

A nice dinner.

We had about 9 different dishes and 8 were simply excellent. The hot beef on a stick was a bit charred but still tasty. Service was good. Best Thai food in the city.

We were looking forward to this restaurant based on previous reviews, but we were very disappointed. The appetizers were acceptable, but we didn't think the Entres were very good. I especially did not like the taste of the pad Thai, which is such a basic dish that it is hard to understand how they could miss on that one. Also we were seated in an area where the overhead lights kept flickering on and off. It took a while for them to notice and fix it. We also had difficulty finding it. From the address, you would think it would be right on the corner, but it is south of the 7 Eleven. We wouldn't go back.

One of the best Thai restaurants in the city of chicago. Wonderful fusion with Japanese, very good sushi bar to complement the thai menu, but strong stand alone thai dishes as well. Great romantic spot as well. Quiet and good for valentines day or dates.

My wife and I were in Chicago and looking for something Asian. Found Amarit on Opentable and decided to give it a try. Local place, not at all fancy, the food however was fantastic.

The price is right, but the food was just ok. The fried tofu was terrible and the other dishes were fair. The Tom Yum Koomb (shrimp soup) was good.

The overall feel of the restaurant could be better, you will not find any luxury nor a great wine list, but the food is very good and the staff is very dedicated to help ask the right combinations and quantities.

Very average food in this "oriental restaurant". The coconut smoothie was ok, but the main courses were, although promoted as "spicy" , very mild. I'm sure there are beter restaurants in Chicago that serve far beter Thai food!

We tried Amarit on a whim and were pleasantly surprised. Everything was very fresh and had a great flavor. We all tried different dishes and no one was dissappointed. When they make crab fried rice, it's not imitation crab, it's the real deal. Their cashew chicken was loaded with cashews. Their pork medallions were superb. The service was impeccible, food was delivered really quickly which we didn't ask for but it was lunch so they've obviously worked with a lunch crowd and know how to deliver. I would recommend Amarit to anyone looking for a good meal in Chicago for lunch. Reasonably priced too.

This is the first place my now wife and I ate after being married by the court. The food was good then as it is now. They have a nice patio and the inside is nice ambient and quiet. I have eaten a lot of Thai Food in Chicago and it rangs among the best with dishes for every taste - mild to spicy, beef to veggie, salads to noodles, traditional Thai dishes, specialties, and the dishes you expect.

The menu is sort of Thai / Chinese hybrid. I was surprised that the restaurant does not supply complementary ginger salad and Tom Yum soup, as I am accustomed to most Thai places serving these. However, we ordered the bowl of soup, and it was plenty enough to share with 3 to 4 people. The Tom Kha Kai (coconut base) was delicious! We ordered 2 dinners - Pad Khee Mao and Rama chicken, and we had more than enough food for 3 people. I felt the Pad Khee Mao (crazy noodle) was pretty average, but the peanut sauce on the Rama chicken was awesome! I would likely go again.

Pretty good thai food and above average presentation and decor. They were somewhat slow, considering we were the only guests, (especially taking the order and bringing the check, not the cooking process). Overall good experience though.
