The panang curry was the best we've ever had. It had a beautifully exotic taste. The chicken basil was also amazing. Portions were large, but not too large. The service was excellent. They have a booming takeout business - they filled quite a few orders...More

We have been coming here since 2005. We have since moved to the far north side of Chicago but when we want excellent Thai food, we make the 30-40 minute journey to New Pot. My kids are picky about non-cheese, spaghetti, burger type meals, but...More

Haven't been there in many years (~10?) before this visit. Very extensive menu. Multi Asian cuisines. The curry puffs were surprisingly good. My main dish (which was recommended by the waiter) had very fresh vegetables but too few of them. The beef tasted like it...More

I highly recommend this place, looks dinky from outside but nicer inside and great food! The service was excellent. Got my food fast and reasonably priced.

Have only been here a couple of times and get the crab Rangoon and spring rolls. Both are good. The service can be a tad slow considering it has not been busy when I have been there. I think they do a lot of carry...More
