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

We were lucky to get a table in this busy restaurant on 57th street. It's popular with the pre-theatre crowd so can be very busy at this time. Food was excellent and service efficient. I would go again,

Very Thai in its environment and you fell like you're in Bangkok as it's very busy always for lunch. If you don't get there by 12N you wait in line for anywhere between 2-10 minutes. Food is good, moderately priced and tasty.
