Good BYOB Thai Place?

Does anyone know of a GOOD Thai place (preferably on the north side) that is also BYOB?

    1. re: Erik M

      Spoon Thai was outstanding on our recent visit. Its also within a block of the Brown Line Western Ave. stop, so very convenient.

    2. Erik did not include my personal favorite BYO Thai rest., which is Opart on Western just south of Lawrence (at Brown Line's Western stop). (I have been to all of the rests. he listed, for what it is worth.)

      1. Butterfly Sushi & Thai in the 1100 block of West Grand is a nice neighborhoody place that encourages BYOB, brings ice buckets, etc. And gives you the option to have great sushi with or instead of your Thai food.

        1. I am a huge fan of Thai Lagoon just east of Western on North Avenue. Its a tiny place, but has great, cheap Thai food!

          1. TAC Quick at 3930 N. Sheridan is exceptional. Ask for the Thai menu (kindly translated by Erik M.). There is a liquor store a few doors down with a decent selection of beers, and it is very close to the red line.
