NYC Quality Food In Suburbia

We have been here several times, and the one world that comes to mind is consistency. Consistently great. The Thai red and Green sauces are authentic. The Spicy Shrimp dinner is fantastic and not to spicy just a kick, The duck is great, so good it may sell out. Try the Thai Spare ribs and... read more

We sat outside. Our friends loved it but I found the constant traffic noise from cars stopped just a few feet from our table disconcerting and at times when a horn blew or a motorcycle went by downright disruptive . Food was loved by most but I was disappointed in my meal (the short ribs) as was my friend who... More

I have been here three times. I prefer dinner over lunch. I recently ate here and ordered their Gao three noodle dish with shrimp. Noodles had just the right amount of heat. Sadly, there were only four ( yes 4) Lilliputian shrimp hidden in the dish. Lunch is served with nicely prepared peanut sauce yet on lifeless lettuce. There is... More

Definitely worth the trip. Been here multiple times and enjoyed everything we've tried. It is BYOB, but there is a decent liquor store in the shopping center across the street.

Food is exceptionally good, well prepared, very good portion sizes. Prices are mid-range $15-$17ish for most dinners. Apps are good. I have never had dessert there so I can not comment. It is a BYOB friendly restaurant.

The food is very good. We ordered a few dishes to share in order to get a taste of more dishes. Eating inside was better for me, since the time we ate outside it was very buggy.

Great, local Thai restaurant. This BYOB has great lunch deal. The food is always good. The pad Thai is excellent. The lunch deal is a nice change from a salad or sandwich. Dinner is very crowded and small parking lot.

Gao rarely disappoints. Pork riblets are excellent (sometimes with a little too much sauce for my taste. Shrimp pot is great as is the duck salad. Staff is always courteous. Kitchen always complies with my requests of no peanuts, no mushrooms, gluten free.

Went here for lunch. For $9.99 you get a large entree and choice of soup, salad or spring roll. I had the pad Thai. I asked them to make it extra spicy. It was so good and the shrimp were cooked perfectly. The servers were friendly and attentive. We sat outside which was lovely. I will be back.
