With hundreds of tin robots, wind-up toys and other kitschy gewgaws covering every inch of wall space, your short wait for lunch here will be spent giggling about Pez dispensers you had as a kid. Entrées typically zoom out of the kitchen, especially on busy weekend nights. Start with the spring rolls, which are light and crisp enough that you’ll have plenty of room for a heaping plate of rama, with its rich peanut sauce, crunchy steamed broccoli and perfectly fried cubes of firm tofu.

This is the only place to get thai food in Wrigleyville/Lakeview. The staff is so sweet and the decor is perfectly kitschy. Dine-in is cash only but you can use a card for takeout, either way it's incredibly cheap and BYOB. My favorite item on the menu is the crab rangoon (they serve it on a small plate with a little drink umbrella stuck in one of the rangoons!). This place deserves a 100 star rating.

Love, love, love Cozy!! We order takeout from here several times a month, and often dine in as well. Their Crispy Pad Khee Mao house specialty is my absolute favorite (I get it with shrimp) - it has just the right amount of heat on it. The Wonton Soup is heavenly, heavy on the garlic, which is unique in their preparation I think, and the best cure for the common cold I've found! The Crab Rangoon appetizer gets us every time - they're always perfectly crispy since they deliver them without closing the box top. Fresh ingredients, delicious flavors, and a fun atmosphere - you can't go wrong with Cozy!
