We recently made another visit to this restaurant. The restaurant now charges a corkage fee of six dollars for each bottle of wine. The food was good as usual. We split a shrimp pad thai and stir fry cashew nut.

I went here for lunch the other day, not only is the food good, but they serve it quickly, making it a practical place to go for lunch.

I had sweet and sour chicken and it was good. Sauce was a little thin, but flavorful, so rice helped. Full of fresh vegetables that were not over cooked at all. Reasonable prices.

Don't let the exterior or location fool you. From the outside, this place looks a little like a Chinese carryout. It's on a busy street with lots of mini-malls. Inside are about 10 tables in two separate dining rooms. The larger room (to the right)...More

South Side Thai is easy to miss even if you know the area. It is tiny and tucked away next to a pizzeria and vape store - it just doesn't look like a restaurant from the outside. Overall, ambiance is lacking both inside and out...More
