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.
The menu at the restaurant was quite a bit different from what I saw online. Service was very pleasant. The wine selections are pretty limited.
Delicious Tom Yum River Prawn dish! Solid selection of beer, too.
Wishing we’d discovered this earlier. Nice to know excellent Thai is so close by. Don’t miss the green curry noodle dish. Service was also a highlight!
Really enjoyed our appetizers; scallops and lettuce wraps. Main dishes were very good as well. I thought they were spicy enough. Took our server a couple of attempts to get the Gin & Tonics right, but once she did, the second round was good. Place is a bit dark. It was a Thursday night at 6:30 and not very crowded so hard to say if noise level would be high on more crowded night. Will go back again and look forward to visiting in nice weather when we can sit outside.
Great experience! We have picked up from SK 3 times and loved the food. Since atmosphere inside looked nice, decided to go for dinner. We loved it. Got the pork appetizer and chicken gyoza as starters and then chicken pad Thai and salmon dish for entrees. Everything was delicious. Super nice servers. Full bar. Definitely will be back soon!
This is an elevated Thai place with excellent service and good quality offerings.
The menu is somewhat limited tho each dish is carefully prepared and well presented. Reasonably well priced too.
Cocktails are well executed.
Desserts is where they fall short as nothing interesting is offered other than cheesecake and some kind of chocolate cake but its not prepared in house.
There is a T V on the wall that distracts from the experience and really not sure why its there.
I always enjoy dining at Silli Kori. Their modern take on classic Thai cuisine is excellent and a nice upgrade from your typical Thai take-out. The endive salad, scallops, and "son-in-law egg" are particular standouts. It's also good for Gluten Free options which was appreciated. They also offer a nice selection of curated cocktails!
Food is excellent. Very flavorful. Similan cocktail was soooo good. I’d come back just for that.
Better than generic Thai food very delicious well made tasty food
Delicious and authentic Thai food. The waitress was very attentive and provided recommendations for dinner. I ordered the Massaman Curry, it was so incredibly delicious. The meat was tender and the curry was smooth and had great flavor. Another bonus is that this place is very affordable. I would highly recommend!
Cocktails and dinner were delicious! Modern decor and nice patio. We’ll be back for sure!
Wow what a gem! And surprisingly inexpensive. Food was very fresh, and atmosphere sexy and modern.
Delicious pad Thai wrapped in egg, tasty braised beef curry, delicious avocado tempura, selection of drinks, and good service. Nice inside and also has a patio. Delicious cheesecake slice given complimentary for a birthday. We will go back.
The food is amazing, the service is not the best. The servers are very nice, but seem to be forgetful and need reminders of drink orders and items ordered. I’ll still go back again!
Great ambiance but overall can find better food elsewhere.
Cute spot for authentic Thai food. Will definitely be back!
Great food, service is less comfortable, too dark, specially some tables in the corner.
Not a very extensive menu but the items we ordered were very good
Their khao soi actually reminded me of the khao soi I had in northern Thailand. Cocktails were refreshing and the atmosphere was great for a date. Corn fritters weren’t anything special but overall very happy to have tried out the place
The Poke bowl was very good and fresh. The Pad Thai was good, but protein was a little on the sparse side.
Very nice ambiance and I would go again.
The food, wine and service were outstanding. Just didn’t care for the old fish smell. Got used to it by the end.
Great place. Delicious food and friendly service. We made a reservation for lunch, and then came back in the evening for sushi bar and beer. It was awesome!
I will be going back to Silli Kori again for sure, and hopefully some time soon. The service was great, they were attentive but also gave us our space. The food was amazing, I had the salmon dish and would highly recommend it (day dreaming about it now). We sat out on the front patio under the twinkly lights; although we went for an earlier dinner, it was quiet and relaxing.
Food arrived cold. They took it back only to send out the same food after they put it under a braiser. It arrived with the same squeezed lime and wilted cilantro.
Boring wine list and the service wasn’t very friendly.
Always a great dinner spot. Check the menu online or on Yelp as they have more items than appear on the menu at the restaurant.
It was my Birthday and my son lives in the neighborhood....... this was both of ours first time here, what a GEM!
The food OUTSTANDING...... we are so excited to find this treasure in the neighborhood! We will be back soon!
Happy to have this place in my neighborhood! The food and drinks are really good and the service is friendly.
The food is always soooo good!!!
I can't say too much as I've only tried a couple of things on the menu, but I had the Avocado Tempura, Pad Thai, and Carrot Cake. All three were VERY delicious! As far as meals go, the price of the Pad Thai was higher than listed online by a couple of dollars, but for Wicker Park was still pretty reasonably priced.
The atmosphere was really lovely. It was fairly dark with candles. I went with my friend but I saw a few couples on dates. They had a couple of larger tables that would be good for groups of six or so, although I'm assuming you should make a reservation to make sure you get one. The bar seating looked very nice, too.
The service was GREAT. Every time my water was empty someone was there to fill it. I had a reservation and we were seated promptly. The food came out in a reasonable amount of time, and the server was attentive without feeling like she was hovering.
I would highly recommend this place!
P.S. If you hate cilantro, make sure your dish doesn't come with it. I had to pick it off of my dinner. My friend, however, loved the addition of cilantro to her Pad Thai.
Great food and drinks at reasonable prices. Nice atmosphere. The only thing we could do without is the large tv showing bright music videos. It doesn’t go with the otherwise pleasant dining atmosphere. But we love this place and will be back frequently !
Food was super tasty, with unique flavor for us. Will definitely return. Way too dimly lit though, I could hardly read the menu.
Great find nestled on Division...menu is a little limited when it comes to having a ton of options but the food they do have is amazing. Tons of value here, both on food and drink, and a great place for a casual meal or a date.
Love this place, we will be back.
Surprisingly good authentic Thai food in Wicker Park.
Server was really helpful with descriptions of dishes.
This place is incredible. Stumbled upon this place one night walking along Division. Was looking through the window and saw that it was low-key. Met the bartender, Eric. Awesome guy, makes amazing drinks too. For food, Kori makes authentic Thai. For a causal date night, or just drinks. Do not miss this place.
Love this place. It has great ambiance, great food!
Kao Soi was outstanding. Best thing on the menu.
Nice interior and friendly atmosphere but food was bland and service was rather slow.
