Rainbow Thai Cuisine
Rainbow Thai is a casual neighborhood spot in Lincoln Square that’s useful for takeout and delivery. The online delivery menu is much longer than the dine-in one, meaning it has curries and fried rice along with various noodle dishes and entrees. Whatever you order will likely feature wonderfully crunchy vegetables, a warming heat, and mellow flavors—like the cashew chicken (which is great), “crazy spicy” noodles (which aren't particularly crazy or spicy), or a too-sweet pad thai that tastes like it was cooked in apple cider. The small dining area has a few tables, but it's usually easy enough to get a seat when you really can’t stand the thought of eating another dinner on your couch.
