Our son took us here for dinner, he had made reservations (recommended) because it is a very small restaurant. I had the Pad Thai, I am not expert on Thai food, but I though it was excellent. Our server was friendly and very attentive to us. We are looking forward to our next visit,

Cold and windy night so we went online to Carryout Courier and ordered three dinners and apps from Esaan. The spring rolls, both kinds, were crisp, fresh and delicious. We ordered Pad Thai with shrimp and Penang Curry with chicken, and another dish which I can't remember the name, but they were all excellent-- vegetables fresh and not overcooked, and... More

Esaan is a great addition to the revitalized downtown York restaurant scene. The restaurant choices in DT York are increasing, so having a Thai restaurant which offers vegetarian and vegan food options, along with seafood, chicken, beef and pork (and gluten-free options too), is most welcome. As soon as you walk in the front door of Esaan, you’ll encounter the... More

All four meals were excellent and was filling. BYOB is a bonus too. We decided on dessert also, who can pass up gelato!

This is certainly our go to Thai restaurant in York. The food is so fresh and love the BYOB. They also have house made gelato that is so tasty.

This is a tiny restaurant right in downtown York. Best to have a reservation. The squash soup appetizer was savory velvet to the mouth. Then the cashew stir fry chicken was perfect. I'm not a big tofu fan but the red curry tofu option was also fantastic. It was spicy but not overly so. The spice just amped up the... More

I normally enjoy Thai restaurants, but I was not impressed with Esaan. The food was made with fresh ingredients, but they focused too much on trying to be new age with gluten free options and super healthy options. If you are looking for that, then you should try Esaan, but I think they lacked flavor, their Thai Fried Rice needed... More

So - I love Thai food, and eat it whenever possible. The food here is pretty good - not the best Thai I've ever had, definitely not the worst. I prefer to get the food as takeout - service is painfully slow. As takeout, I don't feel like I'm waiting forever. The Pad Thai is good - the spring rolls... More

Came here on a recommendation from my hotel. When i walked in I was skeptical. The place was small (cozy) and was paired with a gelato shop. However, when the menu was presented to my colleague and I, we started to let down our guard a bit. We ordered safe dishes, just to be on the safe side and our... More
