The food is good, the wait is ridiculous. Every time I order from them, there's an hour and a half to two-hour wait for delivery. Unfortunately they're one of the only Thai options available. The Tom Yum soup is good, and the Royal Rama chicken is very good. The dumplings are so-so. more

Best Thai food I've had, ever. more

Editorial review from GrubHub 10/28/2013

The food is really good, but not quite as good as when it's fresh out of the kitchen from the restaurant. This has happened twice, so although I'm a big fan of Erawan, the delivery service is slightly disappointing. Takes >1h, they often forget the rice and don't read your order properly/fully. I'd recommend going to the restaurant rather than ordering, it's the best in town on site. more

They make the best Drunken noodles. Also, today I was supposed to pick something up and got caught up with work for two hours - they graciously offered to make a brand new dish for me! A+ for service. more

Everyone Loves Erawan 3/12/2009

Go for the Drunken Noodles and Fresh Spring Rolls, stay for the Curry and Holy Basil. This place has it all. Not the cheapest in the world, but good Thai food is hard to come by in Philly. If you're on a budget, try the lunch special. Pros: Friendly and Delicious more

Worst place to have deliver food to you! 2/8/2009

We had dinner delivered and it took over an hour. When we saw our spring rolls didn't have shrimp, we weren't going to call and make a big deal, but then we opened our main dishes and they were completely wrong. Funny thing is that the receipt was correct. We called them so we could at least have our correct dishes delivered. The first girl didn't speak enough English to help. The manager ended up banning us from the restaurant rather than being accommodating and sending us our correct dishes in a timely manner. Don't order from here! Pros: They'll deliver Cons: They have the worse customer service I've encountered more

Great tasting food. Quick delivery. Highly recommended. more

do not use your credit card! They overcharge 12/4/2008

Food is good. Not very spicy, though. We had a '2 pepper' hot dish that was totally mild.\r I suggest to use cash: they overcharged my credit card although I gave close to 20% tip. Maybe it is customary to give more than 20% tip these days? Anyway, a pretty unintelligent move considering that they cheated another dollar or so out of a $40 bill... Pros: good food Cons: overcharge credit card, slow service more

I have ordered from Erawan twice, now. Both times were just ok. I have tried the pork dumplings, drunken noodles, salad with chicken, and the wrapped shrimp. All were just ok. more

Erawan Deliver By Car 9/8/2008

Hi,\r \r This is responding to DOCTORCHIC experience with Erawan Thai Cuisine recently. \r \r On slow Sunday evening, I made a delivery to doctorchic's place. As far as doctorchic's place, I made it on time. \r \r There might be a misunderstanding of orders. The packaging person checks before it gets delivered. It sounds like the whole orders were wrong. However, that evening, we did not have any left over or mixed up orders. The call was placed after all dishes were consumed. Erawan offered a replacement & sincerely apology but that did not make Doctorchic happy.\r \r My apologies to Doctorchic again if there was a miscommunication when placing the orders and delivery time given. We are looking forward to serving you again! If there is a concern, questions, suggestions, please feel free to email me directly at erawanphillgmail \r \r Warm Regards,\r Erawan Thai Cuisine\r Laddie P.\r Owner more

I had a massaman curry and it was quite delicious. I would've enjoyed more peanuts in the curry sauce though. more

Is the frustration worth the food? 6/19/2008

That's the question you gotta ask with this place. As one of the few Thai places in CC outside of Chinatown, Erawan has great, delicious food at reasonable prices for the great quality of the dishes. Their massaman curry in particular is excellent. The only problem is you have to pull teeth just to get it! Whether take-out of delivery, over the past 3-4 orders to this place our food has either been wrong, the hostess has basically harassed us (as said in another review) to hurry up and get your food (even if you're only a few blocks away), the ""20 mins"" promised wait has turned into a full hour (yes, a full hour sitting there drinking water waiting...for TAKE OUT), or worse. The last straw for us was tonight as I called and called and no one picked up the phone, only to venture down there and find an empty house with a waitress nervously lying saying it was a busy night while I watched the cooks & hostess lounging around in the back.\r \r So in conclusion, if you can put up with alot of BS to get great food, go for it. But if you're quick to answer, go to My Thai instead. Pros: Great food, affordable prices Cons: Horrible takeout/delivery service more

Ridiculous host 2/24/2008

Not too long ago I decided to order take-out. With the weather being so cold, thought I'd stay indoors. Placed my order, fifteen minutes later the gal from the restaurant calls me my take-out was ready for pick and she was afraid it get too cold for me to enjoy later. Walk down to my car, warm up my engine about ten minutes in between, she calls once more demanding I pick up my take-out. On my way there, hence, downtown traffic, she calls once more asking if I had any intentions on picking my dinner up. Hold your horses lady! I appreciate the call to inform of my order but after the third phone call, I felt harrassed. Once I got there, not only was I in a crabbie mood after those phone calls, my order was wrong. Ridiculously hounded by their host! Pros: inexpensive Cons: bad host, parking & location more

Cute, quiet, very good pad thai 5/27/2007

While Erawan is close to Rittenhouse, it's far removed from the see-and-be-seen atmosphere of those restaurants. As a small, intimate, quiet restaurant, it would be ideal for dates or simple meals with friends.\r \r The food that I had on my visit was incredible: the chicken curry dumpling appetizer was sweet and tangy, and the pad thai was very intricately flavored and had just the right texture. My only tiny complaint is that the shrimp was slightly overcooked, but this didn't ruin the dish at all. The Thai Iced Coffee is sweet and amazing. Definitely recommended. Pros: Wonderful pad thai, iced coffee Cons: A bit pricey more

Great thai food, not crowded, also good for takeout and delivery 12/30/2006

This is one of our regular places. Even though their menu is not extensive, it covers most of what you would want in Thai cuisine. It is not very creative, but the basics are well done on a consistent basis. \r \r We love their fish cakes, Erawan noodles, and Rad Nar. \r \r They also deliver or you can do take out. The BYOB part is nice when we eat there. Given the location, it is often less crowded than other places just a few blocks away. That makes it great when we want to have a relaxed Saturday dinner - without the hordes of teenagers screaming up a storm. Pros: Great food, BYOB Cons: Nothing creative or fancy, ambience is ordinary at best more
