Busy lunch at Topaz

Excellent food, new owners, the menu is not as long, but it allows for faster service. Full at lunch, everyone enjoying their food. Had red curry - hot and fresh. You can make a meal out of the soup. It is a little chaotic - but the food is good.

Red Thai chicken Curry and the chilli fried chicken were delicious however the beef in black bean sauce with noodles was tasteless. So stick with the mainstream Thai dishes and it is delicious Good service

Great Thai food in a very pleasant atmosphere. If you want good Thai food correctly spiced this is the place for you. Attentive staff and a tasty treat are what this place is about. I think reservations are a good idea.

Excellent food & service in this stylish but small Thai restaurant. Everything we tried was excellent.. Calamari & curry puff appetizers, followed by green Curry & the Crying Tiger Beef was excellent. Cozy restaurant, tight quarters but pleasant atmosphere. Friendly staff. Wine very average for $9 per glass, but a very nice restaurant, and I would certainly recommend it.

We visited our favorite NYC Thai restaurant, Topaz, this week. We always enjoy their atmosphere, food, prices and location and find it the perfect place for a quick, satisfying bite to eat before theater or museum visits. We discovered there is a new owner and now the restaurant is the New Topaz. The friendly staff and atmosphere remain the same... More

We have tried numerous meals at Topaz and the food was never disappointing. Even if we eat at another restaurant, our trip to NYC still ends with with a meal from Topaz (in the form of a take-out order). It's that good and that reasonable. It should not be missed.

Good portions, economical, friendly staff and nice traditional thai food. The western part of the restaurant is a little quieter if you wish to chat.

We had another incredible experience at Topaz Thai again. We were married on 12/10/2014 and had a after wedding celebration in the upstairs dining room. The bartender made amazing fresh drinks, food was incredible as usual, service was top notch. Please try this place when in New York. It is centrally located, to Broadway, Times Square, Rockefeller etc. just go!!!!!

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.
