Great Thai spot!

On a beautiful NYC day, we strolled up here for lunch and got the table by the window. Ate the Pad Thai which was excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the atmosphere was great. And the curry puffs appetizer - I could eat those everyday! Delicious food in a great NYC setting. I will be... read more

We came here for lunch and found the cuisine to be delicious and freshly prepared right before our eyes. The spices were just right. Good selection of Asian beers to go with it.

An amazing hole in the wall. Very tiny but very good food. Appeals to a younger generation basically small wood tables cooking in front of you no table cloths much more rustic then that. Not a romantic place but a very fun place. No reservation will probably have to wait. A very small Avery good restaurant with great Thai food

Delicious food and quick service once we got our table. Waiting for a table was definitely worth it.

I went here for the first time after hearing great things from my friends. The restaurant is a little small so we had to wait 15 mins for a table. It clearly has a good following since people were waiting before it opened. If you have been to thailand you will recognize the decor and fee of the restaurant. It... More

This restaurant was extremely busy but the staff were very gracious and apologetic! The wait was not long at all - and well worth it!. The service is excellent - very efficient, and pleasant. Would most definitely recommend to others and return the next time I'm in NYC

We went for our first time last night. The food was great and the service was even better. Our waiter came over at every step to ask if we were happy. We had the most delicious food especially the mango with sticky rice. WOW that was so good, we ended up taking one to go. It is a tiny place,... More

After reading the reviews here, we visited the restaurant prior to seeing a Wednesday night show on Broadway. I am sure glad that we did. It was about 5:20 in the afternoon, and we were seated immediately, good thing because about 10 minutes later there was a line out the door. The restaurant is tiny, only about 10 feet wide,... More

This skinny little restaurant offers up some truly authentic Thai food. The menu isn't huge, but is enough to satisfy, and with its lively atmosphere, you almost feel like you are in Thailand. Barstools along a wall and the tables with little backless stools remind me of the outdoor noodle stands that you find all over Thailand. The prices are... More

Small, busy restaurant. Lots of people waiting for tables but good service, if a little rushed. The food choice was limited ( no curries ) but plenty of noodle choices. I had the special, beef panang which was really tasty. Like most thai restaurants you do need to request a gap between courses else they pretty much come straight away,... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
