Prices are cheap all over. Entrees were 7-9 dollars and the portions huge.

See if Crystal Thai delivers to you. They have a wide delivery area.

Mmm Crystal Thai has some of the best Panaang Curry Chicken I've ever had

Wow, I haven't dined at Crystal Thai in a long time - years. I remember that they were reliable, but used to be on the "sweet" end of the flavor spectrum - however, that was too long ago to make any assumptions today.

One thing that caught my eye is their "Thai Street Food" section - some of these dishes are unusual for this area, and that may be a good place to start when ordering.

As you're driving west on Route 50, Arlington Forest Shopping Center is that white shopping center with red lettering on some of the stores (Outback Steakhouse is what you probably notice the most).

Some of their dishes still are on the sweeter side (The sweet and sour chicken was almost like eating pure candy 😣) The Street food I have had the boat noodle soup and Sukiyaki which are very good, I'm just a sucker for Panaang Curry

I've been a regular go-er here for years and years.  They always plop my usual drink down before we order.

My favorites: 

  • chicken satay
  • fried tofu appetizer
  • wonton soup
  • mussels (although would like them to add a bit of coconut milk in the broth)
  • goong pad eggplant (flash-fried eggplant, shrimp, Thai basil, peppers with a great sauce)
  • red curry (love the sauce here)
  • pad see ew with beef (outstanding!)

Husband's favorites:

  • Crystal Thai Fried Rice
  • Drunken Noodles
  • Pad Lard Na Talay

I should venture out beyond my usuals and try the new dishes but I am happy with these.
