I’ve probably been here 5 or 6 times now and one thing is consistent...the quality and value of the food. This place could easily expand their business by moving to downtown Chattanooga. Food is good to very good, great prices, excellent service. TRY IT!!!

Don't miss this tiny restaurant with informal atmosphere in a small plaza on a main street! We monthly make the nearly hour-long trip to get these amazing Thai flavors. Lots of dishes to choose from at a sensible price.

I have eaten Thai food all over. Thai Esan is probably the best I have eaten anywhere except Thailand. It's authentic & made to order. It's always fresh & hot. The Won Ton soup is one of my favs too. The broth is exceptional!
