Bustling Thai restaurant in mid-town Manhattan on 56th that offers up a very lively and busy environment. Reservation (for group of 6) was possible on short notice on Tuesday evening. Quality of food was simply stunning, and the attentive but unobtrusive service really delightful. Special request to prepare food without MSG was cheerfully honoured, and the food produced was simply... More

Very good food at very reasonable prices in the heart of midtown--close to the park, stores, Rock Center and Broadway

We had a reservation and although a bit early & my companion had not yet arrived I was seated in this very crowded restaurant almost immediately. The service was excellent. The price was right and the food delicious. I'll be back. It is a great place to dine if you are attending a performance at City Center.

Put simply, the Topaz served delicious food. That said, I am writing this after only one experience and having only eaten their Thai Green curry. Even so, it was something special.. What was slightly disconcerting was the speed in which the waiters wanted me in and out. The minute I had finished my curry, the plate was taken away and... More

i arrived at Le Parker Meridien at about 1:30 this afternoon, after an exciting ride from La Guardia occasioned by numerous street closings due to it being United Nations Week. Their burger restaurant had a huge waiting line so I walked out of the hotel and found Topaz Thai next door. I like Thai food and this was very, very... More

Had dinner here early evening and the food was some of the best thai I have tasted. There was a lot of choice on the menu and I would definitely recommend for a tasty yet casual meal.

Dined here for a family dinner of 9 on a Friday night. The various entrees we ordered were very tasty and of course had a spicy touch. I really enjoyed my shrimp salad, a nice light and healthy option after a long day's drive to NYC. The Thai iced tea was a surprisingly pleasant treat as well. Service was attentive... More

After some more expensive meals in midtown we needed a simpler night out. To be honest it was "okay". The food was pretty basic but tasty none the less. The atmosphere in the upstairs section was alright, and the service pretty good. The main thing this place has going for it is the price, in midtown it is good value... More

Visited this Thai on the strength of some very good reviews on Tripadvisor. My first impression that the atmosphere wasn't great inside and no decent ambience. I ordered the Jungle curry which was quite acceptable but was spoilt by a chipped plate which put me off a bit. Some of the staff appeared a bit unprofessional and inexperienced as well.... More

As we stay at the Manhattan Club. we usuallly go here a couple of times a year. Went again this past Friday and as usual our food was great. For New York, the prices are very reasonable.
