I ate here with my family during a rainstorm. I had the melon bubble tea and chicken soup, but I really liked the chicken that my older brother ordered. It was so good!

Authenticity is no guarantee of quality. Out of about 10 dishes, the only decent ones were the red curry, lemongrass shrimp and the coconut rice w/mango - everything else was below average; fried fish, green curry, jungle curry, broccoli beef, shredded salad.

Rainbow doesn't look like much from the outside. It is a fairly small restaurant on busy Western Avenue. I have eaten there a number of times. The food is great. Fresh tasting, great sauces and inexpensive. I ordered take-out/delivery, so can only comment on that service.

Read great reviews in Chicago Sun Times some time ago so had great expectations about the food... The place is tiny, no decor, loud irritating music, & so so service. Food: banana blossom salad with chicken & shrimp in a coconut sauce - tasty but only 1 shrimp. Soft shell crab in curry sauce - the 2 crabs were heavily... More
