I take all of my visitors and employees to the Thai Pavilion. I must have been there over 10 times by now. It's not particularly fancy, but the food is good and reliable. When I go there, I know that what I'm going to get is good (which in DeKalb is not that easy), cheaply priced (about 12$ for a... More

On a college visit we stopped for a bite after the tour. Prices were pretty average for the area and portions were large. (DD actually got 3 meals out of her order.) We liked the curry fried rice and the basil beef. While we did order "hot" our meals were less than spicy for the most part. My only concern... More

Usually get carry out or delivery. Dining there has never been bad...very good service!! Good amount of food for the price (dine-in or delivery) If you want it" Thai Spicy", tell them...they tend to "gringo" it down some.

I always get the same dish at every Thai place I go. Green curry is my favorite and at Thai Pavilion it was very good. A nice helping of veggies in a big bowl of green curry, sweet with coconut milk with a nice sized side of white rice. We also got the appetizer platter which had a large variety... More

The Thai Pavilion has a neat space, good food and perfectly reasonable prices. Thai Pepper Steak lunch special is a solid choice with rice, soup and egg roll all included in the package. Two people can get in and out for around $20 - and you will be so full. Great choice!

We had the fried leek dumplings, cucumber salad and mango chicken. I didn't even eat any rice just the crunchy tender and sweet mango chicken and the delicious cucumber salad. The serving is enough for two.

The best pad Thai ever!!!! Very fresh ingredients and you will not be leaving hungry. Lunch is a full size meal ( and then some), complete with soup spring roll and a large portion entree. Great flavors and pleasant service. It's cozy atmosphere makes it very enjoyable to visit with friends, not the best choice for large groups. Worth checking... More

We frequently stop in DeKalb on our way to Chicago. We chose to eat here and are glad we did. It presented good, fresh food in a friendly and warm environment. Reasonably priced and excellent cuisine make a great combination!

I love the Green Curry at The Thai Pavilion! It always warms me up on cold days. They have a great lunch special with many choices.
