A Gem in Chelsea

Happened upon this place as it was near our hotel. Do not be put off by the outside! The interior is smart, clean and the staff are so friendly and helpful! I had the Tom Yam soup followed by the mixed seafood with ginger and rice absolutely faultless. We weren't drinking alcohol but as normal... read more

My wife got the basil tofu. It was very over-sauced and swimming in oil. My fried rice was barely fried. I don't think it was unsafe to eat but certainly way undercooked in terms of what the dish calls for. Neither of us ate our food. Avoid this place at all costs.

I was quite disappointed by this place. I needed a quick bite to eat after returning from work and thought that I should try this place out because my usual go-to eateries would probably get tired of seeing me. I probably should have just gone to where I usually go after coming here. I had ordered the pad thai to... More

A delightful Thai restaurant in Chelsea. The mango salad is a burst of fresh flavors. Our entrees were just as tasty as the Thai food I have eaten in Bangkok or Chiang Mai. Portions were big enough that we had to decline dessert of mango sticky rice to my chagrin Service was exemplary.

Stumbled upon this restaurant walking around Chelsea. Had the special lunch menu. The meal cost around £22 for 3 people. Service was great and the food was as good as any Thai food we've ever had.

So fresh, authentic, great service. They deliver as well. There are numerous Thai places in Chelsea, but this is by far the best!

Originally planned to eat lunch at Chelsea Market, however wrong choice on Saturday. Walked around to look for a place to eat and found this wonderful little restaurant. Service was great and best Thai food so far.

Not a fancy place, but the curry was solid. Waitstaff was nice and the food came to the table super quickly.

Went to the Royal SIAM Thai cuisine for dinner at about 18:00. Food was OK, as was the service. Payed the bill with a credit card, and was going to leave a cash tip. I went to the bathroom with my 7 year old sun, but when I left the bathroom the waitress was waiting with my bill saying that... More

Standard Thai selection right on 8th avenue. Very reasonably priced given the location. Standard curry, pad Thai, dumplings etc...food didn't impress me. Service was prompt and friendly. Decent wine by the glass selection.

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.
