Bird's nest was very good!

2nd time at this place and tried the bird's nest with chicken. It was such an interesting dish with the fried noodles shaped like a bird's nest. The sauce in the bottom soaked into the noodles and gave them a delicious flavor. My friend had the same with shrimp. She loved her dish as... read more

Half the items on the menu weren't available and that was on a Saturday afternoon. Food quality OK, nothing to shout about. Very ordinary service.

I would have gave it a minus star if I could! The service is terrible and the waiter was NASTY. There are hidden prices. We were charged $3 extra for rice that normally accompanies the dish Dancing Chicken. I use to come here years ago when I worked around the block. It use to be outstanding! I was wondering why...

This was my first time eating Thai food, and I was very impressed! The food was great but there were also a decent amount of vegetarian options. The mock duck was very delicious and flavorful. The service was a little slow at the beginning to take our orders but otherwise everything was great!

When inside a good atmosphere, service and food. My Wife rarely compliments food, however this place she said it was delicious and so was mine. Please note my Wife is vegetarian, so she is used to being disappointed, but not here.

This used to be one of the best thai values in the city. No more, new owners, limited menue with upcharges for beef and shrimp. Higher prices, food is good but now its like dozens of others. Save your money. ! Look elsewhere.

We ate here twice during our last one week trip to New York. It was a convenient place to have dinner one night and lunch on a Sunday. The duck was especially good we had it both times.All of the dishes were cooked well but the spicing was slightly Americanized. We like very spicy Thai food and we had to... More

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.

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.
