Chicago >Thai Wild Ginger Restaurant
“This place is really great for vegetarians, since anything can be made vegetarian, and they have lots of food especially for vegs like me.”
“friendly restaurant located across the street from the Webster Place movie theater and Bally's health club.”
Best Thai Food in Chicago. Traditional Thai. Everything is amazing with the exception of one dish. Do not get the Lard Nar, it is disgusting, the gravy is bad and all the noodles are clumped together into a gelatanous mess. With that said, this is the best Thai restaurant around. Everything else is great. Pad Thai, great panang sauce, curry, beef salads, salmon, crab rangoon. The staff is super friendly, delivery is very fast, even faster than pizza. The inside is peaceful and the service is always good. I love it. We go here every couple months and order out frequently.
I was at the AMC at the webster place, and a little hungry when I decided to try this place. On the outside it looks like a traditional, nothing-special restaurant, but much nicer inside. This place is really great for vegetarians, since anything can be made vegetarian, and they have lots of food especially for vegs like me. My hostess recommended the drunken noodle, and it was AMAZING! This is one of the best dishes I've ever tasted! They have bubble tea, but ask before you buy because my tapioca was completely uncooked and I ended up throwing the whole thing because it tasted so nasty. I'm definitely going back!
The food is pretty inexpensive for the quantity you get.
Quiet, calming atmosphere and flavorful Thai specialties near the bustling Clybourn Corridor scene..
This casual restaurant provides a relaxing setting before or after shopping or a movie at nearby Webster Place. The lengthy menu features a variety of noodle and rice dishes. Opt for classic pad Thai or more unusual fare like chicken ginger with woodear mushrooms, or lemongrass beef with roasted chilies in garlic sauce. Other options include nam sod, a salad of poached chicken with onion, ginger, peanuts and chili peppers in lime dressing.
Not so wild.... I ate at Wild Ginger last night and wasn't terribly impressed. We started with the Potstickers and the Calamari - neither were very good. The Potstickers were very greasy and the Calamari was swimming in oil. For my entree, I had the Spicy Grilled Chicken with Lime. It was okay, but nothing special - it was served with some iceberg lettuce and a few carrots. I've had much better Thai food in Chicago...
