The food was pretty good. When my friend asked for vegetables to be added to her dish, they brought a side of bland and unseasoned vegetables. Given how good the rest of the food we ordered was, I think the vegetables could have been prepared with more imagination and inspiration.

Silli Kori takes a little extra care with its dishes, something that sets it apart from other Thai restaurants in the area. Everything is fresh and plated nicely. Service is always quick and friendly. Plus, the dining room is stylish in a simple, rustic way. A great neighborhood spot.

They have a nice patio. I tried the spring roll appetizer and it was very good. I also ordered Koi Pol which was also delicious. My friends had massaman curry and the Silli Kori noodles. They really liked their food. The portions were also a nice size.

They were out of the 2 dishes we wanted and weren’t told until ordering. They have good COVID precautions set in place to make you feel comfortable and the from windows were open for ventilation.

This experience is what I love about Open Table. I searched for a Thai restaurant, because that is what we had a taste for, in a location 1/2 way between me and my friend's homes. WHAT A FIND!!! The food was beyond amazing. The Pad Thai was made in a way, that I have never had, the Gyoza and Moo Ping were delicious, but the KAO SOI was OUT OF THIS WORLD - so tender, flavorful...yummy!! Unfortunately they were out of the Kori's Favorite Noodle that we wanted to try....so, it looks like we will be going back! Thank you for an amazing meal!!

Great spot. Food was delicious. Great atmosphere. Service was fantastic. The only dissappointment was in the cocktail I got. I ordered an old fashion which is a pretty price cocktail. It came in a small plastic cup that was mostly ice a big ice cube (which I like and use for my own at home) and it had an off-flavor. Not sure if it was from the plastic cup or the ingredients they used. Other than that one item, it was a fantastic experience and I would highly recommend them.

Reservation was not honored. We showed up 5-10 min early for our outdoor reservation and they acted like they didn’t even know we had a reservation and told us (not super friendly) only indoor was available, we had to wait 20 min for an outdoor table.

The food and ambiance here is always great, but so frustrating to not be able to rely on reservation.

Sat outside on a weekday around 7 pm. Food was delicious with strong flavors. Can order off the lunch menu and make any dish vegetarian if desired! Will definitely be coming back!

Should really get rid of those large glass barriers between all the tables; no air flow, it’s like sitting at a table inside a box. Completely unnecessary; it’s summer, people are vaccinated and while we appreciate the sentiment no smart, decent restaurant has these anymore - not one and we eat out daily. No air conditioning on top of the stifling air flow does give you a third world country feel if that’s what you’re looking for though.

Very cute place and I liked the counter height seating. The appetizers were varied (Corn Fritter, Avocado Tempura, Cucumber Salad, and Crab Rangoon) and so tasty! I enjoyed my dinner dish (Pad Thai) but would have liked more chicken in it. My sons loved the Salmon and Son in Law Eggs. Servers were pleasant and friendly but timing/attention were not top notch. Definitely give it a try!

My favorite quiet, atypical and different Thai restaurant. Quiet setting, with a simple yet sophisticated menu with outstanding dishes, most reasonably priced, and an exceptional if wonderful selection of beer on tap and wines by the glass. Simple, unassuming yet attentive service. Tip-top, spot-on all-around. I've been going there since it opened (more than a few years) and I have been simply and fundamentally satisfied each time. Silli Kori does not disappoint.
