Lamoon - new Thai restaurant in Elmhurst
« on: April 18, 2018, 01:13:32 PM »
Has anyone tried Lamoon, a Northern Thai restaurant that seems to have opened recently in Elmhurst?
8140 Broadway

I haven't checked it out yet; just stumbled across it on Yelp. Based on the photos, it looks like a pretty nice place to sit down and eat, though of course there's plenty of competition for Thai food in Elmhurst.

oh doggone -- that's the address of one of the better (i guess now former) Thai places in Elmhurst, Ploy Thai. not quite Ayada or Sripraphai, but it was pretty great all-around. have to give this a chance, of course, but it's disappointing to know Ploy is gone.

Tried it and thought it was very good though not quite up to Ayada or Khao Kang. They specialize in northern Thai cuisine. I thought that the menu was a bit too heavy on pork dishes. That said, the restaurant is quite attractive and friendly and I certainly plan to go back and try a few more things.

Finally tried Lamoon this afternoon, excellent - excellent!!  The menu has a lot of unique choices you don’t find in typical Thai restaurants.  They have a lunch special menu, but we tried other main courses.  FYI cash only, and I ran next door to buy a beer as they don’t have it on the menu..

I would eat there everyday if I could. We had the mango salad, tea flavored pad thai and a spicy red curry and the sticky rice dessert in coconut milk. Their fragrant leaf house tea is heavenly.
