We had a great time on Mother's Day. They were so pleasant, friendly and accommodating given that I have 2 under 2. The place is cozy but they offer great, friendly service and quality food (taste, portion and ingredients). I hope they continue to find success and people do not realize what a gem we have in the liberties.

Their "Amazing Stir Fry" was truly amazing. That peanut sauce is delicious. Pad Thai also very good!

The host was so nice and attentive. We actually tipped him when we left because he paid more attention to us than anyone else by far. The steamed vegetable dumplings were just not good - very thick and doughy with a chemical after-taste. The coconut soup had a good beginning taste, but about halfway through just could not be tolerated any longer. The pad Thai was tasty but the added tofu chunks were much too big. The crab fried rice was good, wth a lot of crab. Our waitress paid almost no attention to us and the restaurant was only 1/3 full (9pm reservation). We will not be going back.

I have gotten takeout from Circles countless times. It's a little pricey in comparison to similar takeout cuisine, but they have large portion sizes and its delicious. They have the best green curry that I've had in the city. If there is better out there, please tell me!
Most recently we dined at Circles for Valentine's day. We went for a casual Valentine's date and accidentally had a romantic one. The staff put in extra effort decorating the place with roses and candles, and they included a large, complimentary carafe of wine with the meal. It was very nice.

Always great food, never disappoints. Always worth the trip though tough to park on a Saturday night.

Service was very slow; there was only one waitress working the entire dining room. When we arrived, there were dirty tables and people looking around seemingly desperate to order or receive their food.

However, there were at least 5 other employees running take-out, which was annoying to watch as they ran through the middle of the dining room tons of times and were a constant interruption.

Circles, please get another server to speed up the service and please find a way so the takeout orders don't get run through the dining room every 5 minutes...we're trying to enjoy our meals.

Food was excellent.
