E-san is very likely my favorite Thai restaurant in the area. The downtown location on Second ave is our usual spot, and has yet to disappoint me. The decor is comfortable -not too formal like some Thai restaurants. Their regular dinner menu is fabulous, and the food is always delicious -very tasty and full of flavor. My favorite dish is either the spicy basil or the Pad Kee Mao (the best I have ever had!!). The service is always prompt and the waitresses are very attentive. Also, if you want a cheap meal, go there for happy hour -they have great drink specials and super cheap appetizers and entrees (half price on selected items!). My boyfriend sometimes complains that even their ""mild"" dish is too spicy, but if you ask for extra mild, this usually remedies the problem. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys flavorful and rich Thai food, and will continue to go there for years to come!
Pros: Good service, tasty food, Pad Kee Mao, great happy hour deals!
Cons: sometimes too spicy for ""mild"" orders -stress extra mild if you can't handle it!
