Welcome to Always Thai! Nestled under the brown line El, Always Thai is more than just Thai. With satay, curries, edamame, tempura, and shu mai on the menu, it is a pan-Asian eatery, with substantial take out business for neighborhood residents. The room, which seats 40, isn't fancy, but a colorful mural brightens the scene. Nam sod(ginger salad) is served in a fun, stylish bowl, with a slightly sweetened lime dressing and is a light, unexpected start to the meal. Pad kee mao is a tasty dish of drunken noodles, served with plump shrimp. There isn't a specific regional focus to the menu but there aren't many missteps either, making Always Thai a great choice for post-cubs games or a casual dinner. The owners and staff are extremely friendly and take much care in the preparation of their dishes and use only the freshest ingredients. They strive for 100% customer satisfaction every time. Hands down Always Thai is serving up some of the best Thai with amazing lunch specials too!
