Used trip advisor to discover this restaurant. We booked which was just as well as it was full and people waiting for a table. Food was excellent. Service was almost too efficient. Pleasantly surprised at reasonableness of the bill. Definitely go again.

A friend recommended this Thai restaurant on 56th street, right near Carnegie Hall and City Center. A real find. Terrific Thai food, especially items with the crispy duck. Very large portions. A full half duck on each of the three types of orders, including a special request to have it on the drunken noodles even thought it was not on... More

I had high hopes after the reviews I read on TA but alas it did not really hit the mark. Having lived in Bangkok I may have different tastes to the average tourist as I found the food to be lacking in flavour and not really Thai. The peanut sauce had no peanuts in it, the chicken with basil tasted... More

locals obviously know this, because this place is PACKED for dinner - make reservations! Don't be fooled by the shabby appearances, the food here is amazing. Best Pad-Thai I've ever had, hands down. Rich with flavors and, unlike many Thai restaurants, not greasy. I've been here a few times, and you can't go wrong with the dishes here. And also,... More

Found Topaz Thai on tripadvisor, it was one block from were we stayed and took reservations for 6. The table was ready for us, even though it was packed. Service was great. The prices were more than reasonable for midtown and matched what you would find in most other cities in the states. The food was fresh, hot, and delicious.... More

Originally we wanted to have a burger at the burger joint, but the queue was soo long, went there and were not dissapointed at all. Small place, a little bit loud, but the food was delicious, the portion huge and the price fair.

Very cosy. Good food. Tiny tables very close to the others. Not the place to discuss important subjects since people at the next table will hear everything you say. But the food is great at a good price. Staff is friendly. A place to go.

We walked by a few times before venturing in. I had red snapper, my wife had duck, the kids had beef fried rice, pad Thai, vegetable noodles, chicken stir fry, gai yang chicken. All delicious and reasonably priced. We shall return
