Stopped here for dinner one evening after a full day of touring and shopping. Had a minor difficulty finding it as it's name was changed on the sign outside the restaurant. We were seated promptly and the service and food were excellent. It was the best Thai food we've had in some time. The portions were more than adequate and... More

I've never eaten at the restaurant, but have carried out many times before. My favorite dish is the chicken yellow curry. Not the best I have ever eaten, but a solid option for a quick dinner. Never seems too busy, but solid option. If you do get take out, make sure you ask for utensils, as they don't necessarily include.

Staying at Waldorf and Son came down with sickness just as we were planning restaurant for the evening (not linked to anything in particular as kids do!). Wings now clipped and the Wife refusing to leave the room (correctly of course!), went out for a wander to find Mr K's Chinese for a carry out but must have got bearings... More

This place is really close to my office, so when my colleagues and I feel like eating Thai, this is one of our go-to places. It's cheap and service is fast. Lunch comes down to less than $10 for 2 courses (an appetizer and a main course). Their food is ok, but a little too sweet for my taste.

Since I did not get a chance to even try the food my review is based on service only. I walked in with my son and sister in law. Staff was rude from the get go, they made a fuss about my stroller (which was one of those small fold up ones) so I took my 3 year old out... More

The Thai food was so tasty and perfect. Huge selection at good price. Free beers before 9 pm. Friendly staff. Tip was included in the bill.

The place is small, but the food was excellent! Would return for another meal. Chef was very accommodating!

This was by far the best Thai food I've had in NYC. And I've been to ALOT of places. Happy hour specials are nice along with the meal! This is the first review I've written for any restaurant & highly suggest this place for a nice meal in a quiet setting. The smallest places truly are gems! (I had the... More
