Sushi, Curry, and Buffalo Wings (oh my)!

I am a female 20-something, and I’m as likely to be at home playing xbox, drinking mountain dew, and eating take-out buffalo wings as I am to be drinking sake, wearing four-inch heels at an Asian Fusion restaurant before going to the theatre.


Thai Garden

 225 W Golf Rd
Schaumburg, IL

Best Thai in the Western Suburbs

Despite a significant drive, my office and friends regularly order carryout from Thai Garden. I have tried Thai restaurants all over Chicagoland, and in my opinion, no other Thai restaurant serves food that is as flavorful and fresh. This isn’t your generic Thai-American restaurant. Oddly, I would consider their house specialty their rice. They make some of the best white rice and curry fried rice that I have ever eaten; and I normally find fried rice rather uninteresting. Some other favorites include their Curry Noodles and their Tom Yum soup. They are very good about spice to order, so be sure you specify how spicy hot you want your dish.

My only gripes are that they do not deliver, and I haven’t found a takeout service that picks up from them (please correct me if I’m wrong!). Also, carefully check telephone order bags due to the language barrier.

Curry Fried Rice

Some of the best, most flavorful fried rice that money can buy. Fresh, quality rice with fresh veggies and a slice of lime. Excellent with chicken!

Sorry Tisiphone but the Hi-Fi Roadhouse in Highland you were thinking about trying has since closed its doors. I drive past it every day and it’s sad to see it closed. Truthfully the food and wait staff really did suck but they spent so much money rehabing the restaurant.
