Penny's Noodles is just OK at best! I found the food to be average for Thai and over priced for what is average tasting food.

I started coming here when I was in nursing school in 2007. I have been coming back ever since. It is a small restaurant and everyone is very nice. The food is great and inexpensive. They always have sports on the TVs too- which is bonus when I go with my husband. My daughter loves the kids fried rice. I... More

First of all I'm relatively new to Thai food. I think peanuts when I here Thai and I don't particularly like nuts at all. I went to a dinner with friends and between the host's presentation of the food and the actual taste of the food, I immediately became addicted. I'm a foodie. It's what I do. We had the... More

We showed up on an early Monday night, a rather SNOWY night, so we had plenty of options on seating. Stuck with water and ordered the Red Curry Rice for myself, the wife had Pad Thai and we got a chicken rice thing for the kid. Portions were all large which alluded to a good value. Our check was $26.7... More

This restaurant is just across the street and down a block from the Frank Lloyd Wright home and studio. If you are touring Oak Park, it is a convenient place for lunch or an early dinner. Offers ample seating and the decor is pleasant. However, some of the Asian waitresses do not speak very good English. They have daily specials.... More

Nothing really special anymore and the food is just ok. Crab rangoons really greasy. These used to be crisp and fresh, but sadly this is no longer the case. Chicken in the noodle dishes dry and barely recognizable as meat. Their prices have increased which would be ok but the quality has decreased. The main dinning room is loud and... More

It's a simple quick bite to eat type of place. You can grab and go or stay and watch the game on the T.V. I like to order the tofu curry. You can also have a working lunch meeting here in the afternoon as it's pretty quiet.

I love this place so much (and it's near my workplace) that I have a working rotation of items that I eat and never get tired of... Spicy Basil with chicken was for lunch today. I also enjoy their Pad Thai (who doesn't?) with shrimp and both of their soup offerings are such a unique flavor combination! If you like... More
