    Great food and great restaurant. We dined here as a party of 5 on a Sunday night. Our server was very helpful in making suggestions and all of the food we had from the spicy beef salad to the Penang curry and everything in between was delicious. It's BYOB which makes it a very affordable place to eat. They seem to do a big takeout business as well. If you like Thai food, I highly recommend Erawan.

    We had the most magnificent authentic, and fresh,Thai dishes at Erawan! We tried as many new things as we could! The Thai iced tea was delicious, and so was the Logan drink! We really enjoyed the coconut soups! We loved the vegetarian Thai drunken noodles with coconut sauce, and because I am allergic to peppers, they were very sweet and left out the peppers. It was absolutely outstanding! We also ordered the mango and coconut yellow curry vegetarian dish! It had pieces of cut mango in it, and it was also outstanding, with a side of rice and just the right amount! Then we tried all three flavors of the ice cream! Green tea, coconut, and mango! All three were fantastic but the coconut with real slivers of coconut in it was absolutely outstanding! Thank you so much for an amazing feast!!

    I waited quite a bit for be seated. Then I waited quite a bit to have my order taken. Then they lost my order and had to have it retaken. Food wasn’t that spectacular. It was like eating at a corner store. I was very disappointed

    Food was delicious. Drunken noodles tasty but not very spicy next time I’ll up the heat level. My partner had catfish over which he absolutely raved. Since it was our first time there we asked our server for recommendations and she was spot on. Will definitely return.

    My kids love this place - food is fast, tasty, fairly priced. My 8 year old gets curry on the side and eats it like soup. Service is good. Ambiance takes a knock for the stream of food-delivery people coming in and out, and it can get a little loud as the night goes on. This is a safe choice for solid Thai.

    They put in the wrong order to the kitchen so we had to wait 35 minutes for our food while everyone else was eating at our table. But when it did come, it was really good. Also BYOB with no cork fee :)

    I had heard about this neighborhood Thai restaurant and had the Worst experience ever. The food was tasteless, it was dropped off at the table, they forgot to mention they were out of duck until 30 minutes,after we placed our order and no one asked about our meals. Whenthe bill was presented they noticed the plates untouched and asked if we wanted it boxed to go. They are clueless! Worst ever!!!!

    Love Erawan. I usually get pad thai, which is much better in the restaurant than delivery. Fun place for a casual date or dinner with friends (BYO). Lots of great vegetarian options! The steamed vegetarian dumplings on the app menu are great!

    Very loud (not really the fault of the restaurant -- but two large tables of drunk, loud Penn students). Lots of options for dishes, my family enjoyed the appetizers more then the entrees. We were a little disappointed with our levels of spice, but will just be sure to ask for spicier next time!
