    Yes, it's pretty good considering the location and associated high rent. While they do have some dumbed down pad thai dishes, some of the food is authentic in my limited Thai experience and if you ask to bring the heat, they can.

      I had the chili duck at Chili Duck the other day, and I enjoyed it. Not as expensive as you'd think either, considering some of its neighbors.

        Definitely not too expensive, I found it quite reasonable on my two trips there.

          I like Chili Duck. I tend to stick with their curry dishes, which are quite good, rather than noodles, which (along with the apps) are more Americanized.

          Also, they're extremely friendly, and their delivery area is pretty wide.

            I agree, Chili Duck is really quite good, for the price and area. Their duck dishes are yummy, as well as their curries. Definitely a place where you can get a solid meal, unlike some of its neighbors.

              Ditto, ditto, ditto! And isn't it fabulous that they're open about their Americanized food by having a special menu for it! (i.e. Be sure to ask for the other "authentic Thai" menu).

              BTW, I don't know if anyone is a student out there, but Chili Duck always has coupons in those student advantage coupon books.
