great lunch boxes

The place has nice atmosphere and actually has an attractive bar (no drinking for me before 5pm). I was there for lunch and had a lunch box for $7.50. It is a good deal. I had the panang curry once and the pad thai another time. It comes with soup, salad, dumplings, and a little piece of... read more

This thai place has the best Massaman curry of any thai place I've been to in the city. It is simply delicious. Many of the other dishes are not bad either...

The food here is delicious, but more than offset by the infuriatingly lackadaisical service. Head to the places on Woodside Avenue or in Elmhurst instead.

Used to have great tasting food, but no more. I threw away the menu after the last time I ordered. Gave the dog my food, that is how bad the duck was tasteless!

$7.5 for a huge lunch box is really great. Love eating my lunch there. Service is great, food is amazing, love having this restaurant so close by. I choose Chicken Pad See Ew or Salmon lunch box. Both are just great.

This place was recommended to me by a friend and I've gone 2 days in a row now. Day 1 I got masaman curry from their lunch menu. $7.50 for the curry and a side salad was well worth it. I returned tonight to get pad thai. Dinner portion was about $10, and enough for me to have leftovers tomorrow.... More

The go to Thai in the hood. Each time I go to JH, I come here with my bestie. The service is good to excellent. Friendly, helpful, patient, and good with my odd allergy. The fried snapper on the bone is their best. The seasoning, spices always add to the dish. I will be back soon for sure.

Great Thai food! A Jackson Heights institution moved to 37th avenue. Friendly staff, great food. Try the Tom Yung Goong soup , just wonderful. Been there 30 times over 9 years. Was once voted years ago among the best Thai In NYC; NOW that might be a tall order with the welcome explosion of Thai restaurants in NYC.

In short, this place is good for a date if you want to be in a hip and vibrant restaurant and in a nice environment. The food is no longer authentic Thai and resembles the watered down mush that is served in Thai restaurants in Manhattan, but if your not into the real Thai flavor and want generic plates than...
