Ok, maybe I was being a bit harsh, but if this restaurant was in any other location, it would not be as popular. This is a good option for thai food around the theater district, which is riddled with crap food. The inside is really nice, but the food is just OK.

We visited Qi in Williamsburg on a recent trip to NYC. The whole area is so charming and fun. Qi is a lovely little restaurant with creative spaces. Lived the giant fountain centered in the room. Service was friendly but drinks from the bar didn't arrive until after our entrees. Everything was delicious but the outstanding surprise was the snapper... More

In search of a good meal to eat we stumbled across this Thai restaurant, from the outside the place looks impressive and costly being that it is in Union Square (fast food town) I was hesitant, took a one last gander at the posted menu and due to my craving for authentic Thai food I decided the heck with it...

I dined here last week with my sister. I have eaten here several times before. It is not in the greatest area but I guess that is why they have the curtain in the front of the restaurant---to hide the honky tonk area of times square! Once you enter....you will notice the lovely decor. The food is quite good and... More

This was some of the most authentic Thai food I've had. The curries and noodles were great and you could request the spiciness. It's an open space so don't expect too much atmosphere. Service was fine and prices were good.

Very basic Thai food served in a nice enough space. Great Lychee and Prosecco cocktails (named "Mantra" I think) were the most interesting thing about this swift lunch. My shrimp Pad Thai was totally fine but nothing to write home about; My friewnds both had the same thing; Tom Kha Veggie soup (a sort of coconut broth) with tofu and... More

It's unfortunate that Qi's wait staff is so oblivious to their paying clients. Qi means spirit - which they need to acquire. The food is very good, soft rolls, soups and entrees like mussman curry chicken. The atmosphere is very loud - but sharp and sophisticated. It's a toss up.

Food is not that bad but waiter service is extremely bad, waiter chases the customer asking for more tips than usual, won't let you go out until you tips more than enough for him. I went out very scared from this place. With employees as him lowers the Restaurant category
