Victor, our waiter took the time to explain a majority of the menu items to us, including what his personal favorites were. He was trying to encourage us to order family style, but we were all set on what we wanted. We shared some appetizers, which were all very flavorful and interesting, and seemed to all enjoy what we ordered. I would definitely dine here again!

We had excellent service - the waiter was quick and very flexible for all of the requests of our party of 14. Most of the food was very tasty, medium sized portions. The one disappointing thing was a noodle dish (the waiter recommended) that came out tasting super burnt.

The food and service was excellent. The mango chicken (pictured) was one of the groups favorite. The basil chicken was another favorite. Serai was a good choice for a Saturday night meal and is definitely recommended. We'll be return customers.

It's unique and a fun atmosphere. I looked the good, but the wait staff really made the visit for me. I would recommend the pot stickers.

Food was great. They were very attentive to gluten free requests. Parking can be tough in the area so be sure to yourself plenty of time.

The food here is superb. There is a great mix of Malaysian food and some favorites from nearby cuisines so you can feel comfortable here even with less adventurous friends. Great big portions so each entre is also a meal for later. Super friendly staff who work as a team to help you out. Ask their help in choosing a dish. They've never steered me wrong.Also, no wait on weeknights. Go get a table or order out.

One of my favorite Malaysian restaurants in Chicago. I was pleasantly surprised by the flavors, service and the choice of menu. We ordered the roti canai (paratha with Malaysian curry), lamb curry, chicken sizzler, noodle curry dish and flat noodles too. The coconut pudding dessert was amazing too. Each dish was amazing and very flavorful. Will be back for sure when visiting Chicago. The lady who seated us was very polite and gave us all info when we asked questions. She went out of her way to ensure we had a good meal.

Decent food. Small quantities. The guy who stood to seat us, not the waiter, wouldn't allow seats or high chairs on the side of table even though there was plenty of room. We ordered another dish, and he never came back. Another waitress helped us out.

I love this place! The pineapple fried rice is gorgeous. They actually hollow out half of a pineapple and that is your bowl. it's absolutely succulent and well balanced. There's just the right amount of savoriness from the chicken and faint light sweetness to the rice. Their peanut sauce for the chicken satay is one of the most delicious things ever! I asked for extra so that I can put it with the pineapple fried rice. I love that there's a lot of ethnic diversity here with the dishes, it's not one type of Asian food.The bathrooms are clean, the place is clean, the people are very nice and if you go before 5 p.m. it's really not hard to score parking.The downside is there water literally tastes like semen. It has this awful base taste and smell like diluted bleach. I don't know if they're putting old lemons in it or just not cleaning the filter or what. I literally think tap water is miles better. Also, their Thai iced tea is lacking. There should be a little bit more milk and sweetness. I've had Thai iced tea and a lot of other places and it honestly just feels like this place is being cheap with the drink. Also it's really just a little too crowded for the chairs and the first dining room on the right. There was only two in between my chair back and the person behind me. If they would be willing to just move one of the end tables against the wall and sacrifice a little bit of space then it would be better for everyone.

Came from out of town and friend recommended going to Serai for dinner. The food is phenomenal. Definitely recommend going family style so that you can try variety of the dishes. Don’t have any photos because we were starved and started hashing away the food before even taking photos!

Meh. It was ok. Had better Malaysian food at Penang, in Arlington heights. Service was slow. Wait staff were younger hipster type. Atmosphere catered more towards trendy crowd.

The food is pretty good, but it doesn't justify the price.

Great food :) I had a RENDANG BEEF and MALAYSIAN ICED TEA.-RENDANG BEEF: fragrant, mild and delicious. Went really well with the small bowl of rice that came with it.-MALAYSIAN ICED TEA: Like chai tea which is iced, but more light and not overly sweet. Overall it was a wonderful experience.

Delicious Malaysian eats! Seriously came here just for the roti appetizer. Everything else is also delicious, but that roti... Just thinking about it is making my mouth water.

Arrived shortly after the restaurant opened. Was thrilled to find that they had a good amount of gluten free dishes to choose from. Had the Singapore noodles for the first time. The flavor was not what I expected, but I still enjoyed them. Also enjoyed a bottle of sake.

Really the best Malaysian restaurant I have tried in the U.S.! The food is truly authentic and tasty! The owner was nice enough to chat with us after he learned that we are Malaysians and gave us free desserts! Really mesmerized by the food! I wish I can go back again!

Great food, we had the mango chicken and mango fried rice, both were excellent. Sweet and sour sauce is spot on. Apps and main courses are cheap. Not too many places in the neighborhood where you and your special gal can eat for under $40. Water is a bit off, tastes like pool water, probably from their sanitation process...easily changed. Oh and the service is awesome and everyone was really friendly. --Carl Burrell

There's a subtlety to the flavoring at Serai that far exceeds "just another Thai place." Food was prepared quickly and perfectly cooked. Can't recommend enough. The only the downside of discovering a place with as delicious food as Serai is I'll never want to try elsewhere!

I've been here 3 times and love it! The portions are well balanced and the service is great too. Everyone works really hard hear and always make you feel welcome and appreciated. I do make it a point to call ahead and reserve, which they also appreciate because it can be a busy joint! I love the mango chicken dish and their Singapore noodles. The owner habitually comes out to thank patrons and in our first visit, he assured us that his suppliers provide halal meat, yay!
