Feeling nostalgic for Thai food? OSHA is my stop for authentic Thai! The crispy duck larb is exquisite and the lychee mojito amazing (just to name a few faves). If you are sensitive to heat please let the waiter know as it could be too spicy hot for some. The wait staff is friendly and courteous. The restaurant small but... More

My friend and I randomly came across this spot on 2nd Ave. The interior is absolutely charming. Exposed brick walls are adorned with empty gilded frames, and chandeliers provide sufficient light. We were the only people in the restaurant aside from another couple. The waitress greeted us, and we sat down. We both ordered the pad thai lunch special...one vegetable... More

We met here for a dinner for 5 people. The service was quick & friendly if not always attentive. The food was standard Thai cuisine. A bit spicier than usual but they tried to accommodate the members of the group requesting more mild dishes. Overall a very pleasant dinner. I would go back again.

This is a little restaurant somewhat squeezed between the adjacent shops. It is pretenciousless. The decor is simple, the menu is simple, the service quick and efficient and the food good. I ate there lunchtime (they have lunch special), dinner (the candles improve the athmosphere, and even ordered in one evening. The food was 'light' and tasty every time.

My partner and I really enjoyed our dinner here. The restaurant itself was really pretty and the service was good. The food was excellent and reasonably priced for such large portions. The sautéed options were particularly great and was pleased that the jasmine rice was included in the price of the main course. Really recommend.

stopped in for lunch......small but really pretty. Had chive pancake which I would definitely order again. Did not want a big lunch so after that I had a bowl of jasmine rice and a dish of peanut sauce. Best peanut sauce I've ever had. My friend enjoyed her chicken too. She lives close by so said she will be back... More

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

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
