Every meal I have eaten at Trio is just fab. Love it here. And now they are opening a second place in Fairmount! So exciting!

Called Trio for takeout again tonight. Surprise! They asked me if I wanted extra rice. Thanks Trio, you rock!

Previously, my husband and I had tried Trio a number of times but were disappointed. We gave them one last shot at the beginning of this year and were totally surprised. The dishes are quite excellent now. They load the dishes with colorful, fresh veggies (which they definitely didn't do before). The flavors overall are very much improved. Before, I felt they were way too expensive for what was served, but now that the food is so much better, it seems more reasonable. My husband and I usually get takeout and have enough leftovers for lunch the next day. Our favorite dishes are the drunken noodles and the green chicken curry. Our only pet peeve is the size of the rice that comes with dishes. It's so itty-bitty teeny-tiny. Barely enough. Rice is so cheap that to pay $15 for a dish and not get enough rice is a bit infuriating.

Trio is amazing. The decor, the food, the staff, the prices!!! The only sad thing is that I love the drunken noodles so much I NEVER order anything else!!!! The chicken satay apps are great with the cucumber rice sauce(ive tried to make it but its not the same), the spring rolls...everything is delish and the dinner portions are enough for dinner the next day! Trio is really a terrific place...

A cute little place with excellant food and service. The food is always fresh and made to perfection. The staff is very friendly and attentive. This is my favorite byo restaurant in the city.

Trio is the neighborhood restaurant I take my friends to when they want to come to my neck of the woods. I trust them because I've been going since they opened. I honestly love everything on the menu. They don't cut corners and I appreciate having this business in my neighborhood. They support so many Fairmount community events like the Fairmount Fling and Bastille Day. They are always there to make sure things are right. The pad thai is the best in the city as far as I'm concerned and lately I'm on a drunken noodles kick. They are addicting. Now I want them for dinner... Keep up the good work! Fairmount loves Trio!

Ok, I have to say that I am disappointed in Trio. I love Thai food, and this is not a very good simulation of it. I know it is supposed to be, "fusion" but some things are just not a good idea. Eggplant and school cafeteria carrots (think french frie cut, and undercooked) do not belong in the Chicken Green Curry. The soups (Coconut lemongrass and the portabella's in coconut milk) are ok, but very watery. Also, they seem to use dried portabellas in the soup, which bothers me, as I'm paying a lot for fresh food. All that said, it is not bad in person. I have actually had a meal or two there that I've liked, although it is never the same twice. One time it's good,-ish other times, not so much. The delivery however, is definitely bad. We have ordered a few times (we kept trying!), with it being extremely hit or miss, usually miss. The portions are much smaller with delivery and the green curry...again...is almost entirely eggplant and carrots, with barely any sauce at all. I was very upset by this the last time we ordered, as it is quite expensive, and vowed not to do it again. It seemed to me that I was just getting leftovers, not freshly cooked food. It is very unfortunate because I truly am not that picky of a person (despite the above), and I love Thai food, almost any Thai food! The best Thai for my buck in Philly was definitely Chaleo, at 5th and Bainbridge. Their food was fresh, simple, consistent, and well priced. But alas, they were in a poor location and eventually closed. Trio is also very expensive. You won't pay less than $30-$40 for 2 people, with delivery. Usually closer to $40. The quality is just not there to support that. Even Craig laBan only gave them 2 of 4 stars. I really wish they would step up their game a bit. There isn't much in the Fairmount area of interest, and it would be nice if they could do a better job and make all of the residents happy. Get rid of those dreadful carrots and eggplant! And add some actual coconut milk to your coconut milk soup!
