Thai chicken was dry and not edible. Pad thai was good but smothered in sauce. In fairness we were there for lunch and they were overwhelmed with crowds. Must be popular. Our experience was poor.

I have been visiting this restaurant for several years now. Consistency and service are great. I continue to go back and try new menu items as well as take friends to let them experience it. I recommend it for dinner, for lunch and for groups.

Deciding we wanted thai food with an emphasis on seafood we selected esan because of its online menu. Starting with the salt and pepper squid and crab won tons, a main cause of the house seafood special (hot) was my choice while my wife chose a seafood pad thai noodle combination, and finishing with the mango sweet and sticky rice and fried green tea ice cream it was all exemplary.delivered quickly with an ample serving and obviously almost to much we still managed through. The squid was cooked perfectly melting like butter SaaS nd not gummy st all. The seasonings were subtle but enticing .we can not say enough great things.

The food is pretty decent for a Thai place, the Pineapple Fried Rice dinner is amazing; they take a full pineapple slice it lengthwise, gut one side mix the pineapple pieces with the vegetables and your choice of meat, then put it back in the pineapple half which overfills it and serve it to you on a plate.

We decided to go to one of mine and my bf's favorite places for our first "dining out with friends" dinners. We have loved this place and the Pineapple Fried Rice is both of our personal favorites. The crab ragoons are delicious as well as numerous other menu items that we have had other times we have dined here. We will be back many more times I'm sure!!
