    Nothing new to add to all the raves, but a recent visit found a completely empty restaurant (eventually, one other table was occupied). I don’t know how good this location is but hope they can make it.
    You just mentioned 2 things that occurred on my first (and only, so far) pickup order post-reopening a couple weeks ago. It was a Saturday at 8.40pm when I arrived, and there was nobody inside. I tried to be positive explaining that Google Maps had a problem (I knew where I was going, but they peg the place as its former location, but have the correct 4641 address written for the restaurant), hopefully that could be fixed, don't want it to hurt business. Green curry, fish with jungle salad and spareribs were all decent. Really wish nam pla prik or a similar dipping sauce came with the spareribs though.

    I'll be back, despite the annoying no-easy-way drive.

    I just submitted a Google Maps request to update the pin location to the 4641 N Broadway area instead of the old location in Lakeview.

    Interesting... I'd describe the fish with salad as "amazingly good", but it sounds like your experience was less than thrilling.

    Thanks! I did, too -- hope it works.

    I also loved the jungle curry. I've been thinking about how to recreate at home. I think there are pieces of calamansi in there amongst many other aromatics.

    I don't want to sell In-On short. The fish with jungle salad was the best of the three dishes, no doubt. The weak points were how thin the pieces of fish were, despite being understandable as a means to a crispy texture, and the lack of heat to accompany the sweetness. The heavy lean on green apple was an innovative touch, just wish they put some (more?) thai chilies in there. Also, to clarify, I don't know why it's called jungle salad, but there doesn't seem to be any link to the flavors of the coconut milk free jungle curry (kaeng pa), which I ironically have my eye on for my next order.

    I love In-on Thai's jungle salad, the thin crisp texture is a plus in my book. Far as heat, I'm guessing you are but a polite request away to amp up the Thai chili factor in the dish.

    I often request prik nam pla at Thai restaurants, including In-on Thai.

    Far as the name, Jungle Salad, no idea but if you asked I bet they would tell you. Or at least make up a good story on the spot. :)

    I received an email from Google Maps that my pin location update has been published, so hopefully that will clear up any GPS issues.

    In-On Thai Uptown with a group, abundance of wonderfulness, off/new menu item stood out, punchy flavorful moist Sai Oua. Fifth time at the new iteration of In-On, started strong and picking up speed.

    Still hasn't been changed according to my Google Maps. It really bothers me how powerful they are relative to these small businesses, and the little guy may suffer from Goliath's own incompetence.

It was described as "Chinese food" and the loose version of a Thai mussel omelet, if that helps your imagination. Very pleasurable snotlike omelet encasing delicately cooked shrimp which act as kind of the snappy composed version of the cornstarch & egg slurry. The sriracha is the Thai variety, which is to say looser, more acidic, and my preference. It really makes the dish.

    A delicious dish perfectly described as "snotlike"

    Another wonderful In-On meal last evening, they continue to knock it out of the park. I'm obsessed.

    First visit last night and I loved it. Was solo, so only tried two dishes, chicken larb and the Thai green curry fried rice with tofu. Love eggplants, including the small Thai green ones.

    Didn't ask me about the heat, and it was great, but close to my comfort limit. I know that would be over many people's limit, so if you can't handle the heat, you may want to ask to tone it back a bit.

    It was very quiet, but I was kind of early wanting to get to Tuesday Funk at The Hopleaf ~ 7.

    Very friendly service. I made sure to name drop LTH and the owner told me "you should have come last night with Chef Gary and Doug!" I told him Gary must have lost my contact info :lol: .

    Can't wait to return and try more dishes. Thanks to the board, a great find.

    Al, I don't think I have your contact info.

    I wanted to mention one additional In-On Thai dish, Mee Krob, which I almost never order as I find it overly sweet. In-On's version is fantastic, lightly sweet, crispy, sticky, point/counterpoint balance of flavor. Don mentioned they simmer tamarind, palm sugar and a couple of other ingredients for 8-10 hours for mee krob. I've had In-On's mee krob twice in the last week, first at the suggestion of BR, and a great suggestion it was.

    Edit to add, I just noticed slivers of lime peel in the mee krob, In-On really knows how to amp up flavor.
