Reviews for Thai ESAAN

After coming here based on the recommendation I can honestly say I would not return. We ordered both green and red curry, both were extremely watered down and had almost no chicken in either of the orders. The meal cost $42 for two orders of curry and a papaya salad. At that price point watered down curry is far from acceptable especially when there is almost no protein in the dish, at all.

The food is simultaneously lighter and more flavorful than other thai restaurants. The crispy pork is like thai carnitas. It doesn't stay crispy the next day but it's still delicious. The papaya salad was good. The thai sausages had great authentic flavor.I will say that my favorites, pad thai and fresh spring rolls, were not what I was used to. So if your someone who gets pad thai every time, maybe try something different. Their pad thai is good but the fish sauce is very prominent.
Ordered a take-out order yesterday of spring rolls, a tofu red curry, papaya salad, and sticky rice. Ingredients were fresh and prepared on-time. Overall, nothing tasted bad, but everything was kind of bland. Spring rolls had a lot of lettuce, not much herbs and no tofu. Papaya salad tasted good. Red curry flavor was very limited - not enough coconut, salty, or spicy flavor (we ordered medium). Portions were not that big. Most papaya salad's I've ordered were much larger. full review
