Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

For 25 years now, this prescient spot has fed diners first-rate takes on all the classics:  golden triangles, drunken noodles, panang curry and pad krapow. Even the thai iced tea is a standout, served with a paper rose on top of the straw. But it’s when you get to the restaurant’s dinner-only specialities that Equator’s kitchen truly shines—chili duck, avocado shrimp and soft shell crab garlic being three must orders. Equator caters to many a lunchtime professional and nighttime takeout regular, but don’t skip on the opportunity to dine in: the mood lighting and sumptuous decor add an air of intrigue to the place and, in summer, take advantage of the outdoor seating.
