They were 2 of having dinner and they had added the tip to the bill(and not a low one), without telling us. They should have told us as the rule in NY is that tip is not included. They staple on top of the bill the credit card form to be filled in without voiding the tip space. A man... More

Had to work this evening. So decided to do takeout. The red curry was delicious. Portion was very generous. Yes, you have to pay extra for rice but it's worth it. I would definitely go again.

You won't be disappointed by Topaz. Always packed, because of how good the restaurant is, it serves reliably cooked, fresh Thai food.

Basement restaurant with intimate environment. Service was well intentioned and I want to give the service a good review - but have to note in all of the scurrying around and having multiple staff take care of the same table, sometimes everyone thinks someone else took care of something and no one does it. Food very good and authentic. Rice... More

Excellent authentic Thai food that has been there quite a few years now. Not inexpensive but cute atmosphere and truly good food. Close to shopping, museums, movies and more.

Based upon a good recommendation from a friend, we decided to try New Topaz (they changed their name) in early August. We are an avid lover of tasty Thai food. The place was pretty full, so we have high expectation on the food quality and taste. We ordered the "basic" Thai staple dishes, such Pad Thai, Pineapple Fried Rice, Fried... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
