“Skip It”
Reviewed 30 April 2011

After reviewing this restaurant online and reading the reviews we decided to try it. We were very disappointed. My entree was partially inedible and after notifying the staff, they chose not to do anything about it. The mushrooms in my dish had not been properly hydrated before cooking and were the consistency of raw shoe leather. I would have expected them to offer me a replacement dish or discount our meal if they wanted repeat business. Instead we just got an explanation of what caused the problem. My tea was cold and our other entree was not very good either. The place was very empty for a Friday night, so this should have been our first clue that this place is not as popular as one might think from reading other reviews.

“One of my favorites”
Reviewed 10 September 2010

We recently moved to Glen Ellyn and have been working our way around to all of the restaurants. We were too long getting to this gem! The food is fresh, complex and presented beautifully. The day after our first visit, my husband wanted to go back because he was already craving the Kung Pao thai noodles. We all had thai tea, which was delicious! The appetizers are fantastic. They have an extensie app menu and veryone is bound to find something they love. We tried the shared platter with crab rangoon, egg rolls, chicken satay, and dumplings. All were delicious. The next time we tried the wings. A very different presentation, but very tasy. The menu indicates the spicier dishes - and they are right on. The Kung Pao is perfectly spicy - enought o bring a tear to the eye without searing the tastebuds. The decor and feel is perfect for this place. Soft colors, low lighting. It is hte perfect place for dinner before a movie down the street.

“Good price value”
Reviewed 16 March 2010

We went there because Thipi Thai was voted the best Asian restaurant by Midwest Living magazine. We weren't disappointed. The atmosphere was attractive and clean and entrees started at $10 for dinner. The food was very good, not Chinese, but real Thai with lots of spice and zest. Service was excellent and for a Monday night it was moderately busy.
