First Review by xxxx

Delightful dinner - Edit

First I have to say this place deserves a 5 start rating. The site will only allow 4 stars because it’s not strictly veg/vegan. My husband and I don’t normally dine at Thai restaurants, however, being a vegetarian I thought we’d try it out. I’m really glad we did! It’s a cozy restaurant with a super friendly staff. I ordered the lettuce medallions. I couldn’t decide between that and the tofu steak (I’m not a tofu fan but can’t wait to go back to try it!) They were fabulous and the mushroom sauce they were served in is so yummy. Our server, Tristan, was amazing and made very thoughtful recommendations. My husband had the short ribs and thoroughly enjoyed it. My desert was amazing. Black sticky rice. I’ve had sticky rice but never black sticky rice! The chocolate mouse my husband was very different then what we’re used to. It’s taste was so light and smooth. We’ll be back soon and we’re bringing friends.

Pros: Tasty food, Beautiful presentation, Nice atmosphere

Cons: Cant think of any.

Can't Wait To Try! - Edit

Just read the menu for this new restaurant in the north area of Chicago and it looks spectacular! The owners are authentically from Thailand and produce an amazing menu that reflects TRUE thai cuisine ... not the Americanized version of it. Looks like a great new gem in the city. This dish sounds terrific! Tofu Steak,
breaded and singed with textured soy protein, sugar snap peas, celery, king mushrooms, shaved carrots, sesame oil with au jus of soy and crispy garlic. (Available in Gluten-Free) ... will be one of my next stops on the north side.

DeniseStillman 04 Dec 2017 - Sam, we'd love to give you 5 stars but Happy Cow won't let us because NaKorn is not a strictly vegan restaurant. Four is the highest we can award, unfortunately.

Delicious - Edit

The food here is really delicious, and they have several vegan options on the menu (though they are not explicitly marked as such). I had the stuffed cabbage medallions (cabbage stuffed with mushrooms and noodles in a delicious sauce with rice on the side). It was really good. My companions (mostly meat eaters, but one other vegan that ordered the same dish) were pleased too.
The home-made sodas are way too sweet.

Pros: Delicios, Nice atmosphere

Cons: Vegan items not explicitly marked on menu
