I used to live across the street from this little joint. The Thai food is delicious and I love that it's BYOB. I've brought in a bottle of wine with friends and family and we had a comfortable time. The service is great and I miss living across the street!

My wife and I are committed to eating where New Yorkers live and eat. We love Thai food and this tiny restaurant reminded us why we love Thai food as much as we do. The food is quite simply to die for. The flavours, the aroma, left our taste buds craving the next bite. We can not say enough about... More

This is one of my favourite places to go in NYC. Indeed, the best in UES. The food is very good, I'm not a big expert on Thai food, but I always enjoy their food. Specially the massaman curry chicken, the best massaman I've ever tried. Add, very generous amount of food!! But what it makes this place special for... More

We tried a few different dishes and the food lacks flavor. This is probably an ok restaurant for those that do not like spice, but those who like spicy food will find this very bland when compared to traditional Thai food. Additionally, delivery can take up to 45 minutes.

I ordered the chicken and pumpkin curry. It arrived at the table barely warm. The pumpkin was NOT pumpkin. It was acorn squash, cooked with the peel still on. Not good. The service was very good. My partner had a spiced up curry pork that was very good. Theyhave a pretty decent take out delivery service.

Group of five walked in for dinner. Ordered three appetizers and five entrees - each dish was well prepared with authentic Thai flavors and very fresh ingredients. We tried the spare ribs, spicy wings and satay chicken, thai basil shrimp, panang curry, pork double cooked belly, among other dishes. Each dish tasted differently and we wanted to taste all of...

Tastefully decorated, albeit small, this Thai restaurant creates a very comfy feel. Service was extremely attentive. Water glasses replenished every time they were half empty. We shared 3 dishes - red curry, basil and pad Thai amongst 4 of us. There was still food left over. All dishes were as tasty as Thai food I've eaten anywhere else across the... More

The enthusiastic welcome by the adorable waitresses set the tone for a very enjoyable dining experience. Restaurant is small, but cozy, and the food was unexpectedly outstanding. The mixed seafood dish was perfectly spiced, as was the steamed salmon with ginger sauce. Ordering dinner with waitresses who spoke little english simply added to the charm. Reasonably priced, decent wine list,... More

Went here for a late dinner with a friend. Located in the Upper East Side, Osha has a great menu with plenty of vegetarian options. The prices were pretty inexpensive by NYC standards, and the food was absolutely delicious. It's a small place with dim lighting and candles, so it has a very intimate feel. Perfect for a date!
