Lunch Pad

I skipped the noodle dishes and hit the fish. I was delicious and not overly spicy like so many other Thai foods. They also use lemon grass in moderation unlike some other places. TIP: They deliver!

I just wanted to pop in and have something quick. Lacking imagination I did have a Pad Thai. It's very modern, the service was quick, though a little impersonal, the food OK - good value for that part of town. I don't think you'rd regret coming here; but I don't think you'd be in ecstasy

Stumbled across this place by chance while shopping in Chelsea early one evening. It wasn't busy so no problem getting a table.Quite a small restaurant. The staff were very pleasant and friendly. I had a Red Thai curry and it was as good as any I've had. My partner had the Thai Special fried rice with chicken and she said... More

We stumbled on this place by accident one night, looking for something a bit different to eat. It's small, but very modern and quite busy for a Monday night. I ordered a dish that had a lovely name that I can't remember (something about a golden sun?) which had chili in it, and was a little too hot for my... More

I stumbled upon this restaurant by accident. There is a string of various restaurants on 8th Avenue between 14th and 23rd streets (Chelsea), where you sort of take risk with your stomach. Me and my date where pleasantly surprised by the quality for the food served at Pad Thai Noodle Lounge. As an appetizer, I had the "Lava Calamari" which... More

I remember going to this place over couple years ago under a different owner. The place went down hill. I never write reviews but the food was awful. Second time this happened. Ordered Spring rolls. Really dry and tough.( Supposed to favorites on there menu) sticky ricky with mango was too sweet and it wasn't cause of the mangoes. I... More

There was really nothing to rave about in this restaurant but at the same time there was nothing to be too picky about. The ambience and decor was nice and would have been an enjoyable place to dine if it were not for a very loud trio of people who didn't know how to use their 'indoors' voices - and... More

Found this by accident and were almost not going in as was only one table occupied. However, a guy outside told us it was very good and he was right. Very friendly staff and the meal was excellent. We both had lovely bird in nest which was wonderful. Would highly recommend.

If you ever find yourself on 8th Avenue in NYC run past this restaurant! Where do I begin, the front door has black duct tape on it (that should have been my first clue), the Rose wine was red and of poor quality (small pour and not cheap) and the food was awful. I had the Pad Thai, how can... More

Pad Thai not only has great food, but the price is reasonable, the service is excellent, & it's chic without the 'attitude'. It also stands out as a quiet place. Low background music, small enough to have minimal background noise. This is perfect for those who have impaired hearing or wear hearing aids. Diners can actually have a conversation, a... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
