Village Voice's Description

Challenging the culinary hegemony of Sripraphai, Chao Thai offers dishes from several regions. From the north comes the fiery salad yum nam sod, featuring ground pork, purple onions, the basil called horapha, and fiery fresh chiles; from Isaan a catfish salad and a sour pork sausage served with roasted peanuts and crudités; from the southern peninsula a dish called "crab with curry powder" that will remind you of Malaysian cooking; from the vicinity of Bangkok a novel soup called yentafo, which features a sweet broth flavored with fermented pink bean curd. Hottest of all is jungle curry, which sports two kinds of eggplant.

    the spicy here is HOT! I always get mild (still has a kick, don't worry)

    Soft-shell crab with mango salad at Chao ThaiThe crab salad at this tiny Elmhurst spot doesn’t look too intimidating— But one bite in and your mouth explodes from the hefty dose of fresh bird’s-ey...

  • Jeremy P. on 07/10/11

    Small place, slow service and mediocre food.

  • Mohammed C. on 06/22/10

    Get the Papaya Salad, you won't regret it.
