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.

Food is excellent with great service. This was my second time here. The fried dumplings were wonderful and the drunken noodles were terrific. The fried banana roles with mango ice cream capped of a great experience.

Literally left because the waitress never came to take our order. They were not even busy... I have been here before and it was busy. They seem to have gone downhill.

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.

Takes long to get seating even after reservation. There is no queue system maintained so people who came in after us were seated first.

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!

Loved the service at Erawan. Food was delicious. They made a special ice cream plate for my son's birthday, and they happily served 8 of us. The maitre d' was delightful.

We had a delicious meal. Everything was fresh and served hot. Dishes listed as spicy weren’t too spicy.
My only criticism is the room temperature. It was a hot day outside and it didn’t feel air conditioned.

Erawan is a wonderful Thai restaurant in the general vicinity of Rittenhouse Square. The menu has a great variety of Thai specialties. The portions are a good size and the prices are very reasonable. The service is excellent. My friends and I were greeted by a high energy server (who actually remembered me from my last visit). All of the employees are very helpful and knowledgeable. While I have dined at Erawan many times, I don't stray from my absolute favorite, Paradise Garden - vegetables and tofu in a peanut sauce. There is a nice variety of appetizers which can be shared by a group. One piece of advice, save room for dessert. They are phenomenal and worth the splurge. It is always a good idea to arrive early. Erawan is a small restaurant and fills up at a rapid pace.

Let's start with the food - outstanding! Perhaps the best Thai food I have had outside of Thailand. But, this is a small, family run place (which I consider to be a plus), so the tables are small and close to each other and the service is friendly but not completely smooth. The people are extremely nice and did I mention the food? That's what you go here for. It's also a BYOB which I love.
