Now I understand why people are ready to wait for a table here. This had some of the best Thai food we've had in New York yet. Despite being initially told that the wait would be 40 minutes, we were seated within 20 and had our food on the table within another 20 after that. I really enjoyed the standard... More

Great ambience, packed with many diners, great food, great service. Four glasses of Pinot Noir and Malbec, calamari starter, bean dumplings starter, spicy green chicken curry and vegetable Pad Thai all together for $70. In NYC! Will definitely go back.

We had dinner here a few weeks ago and can recommend the food which was very tasty. Previous reviews have noted the 'glitzy' interior and I would say that due to the hard interior finishes the restaurant was quite noisy as the sound is reverberated around. Staff were friendly and left us to enjoy our meal.

If you like Thai, you have to visit this restaurant. The decoration with a "night club touch" could make you expect this is an expensive place but not at all. Food is well served, good flavors, and very small prices for NYC. Highly recommended place, you won't regret it.

Its the best thai food ive ever had. There were five of us and we each ordered something different so we could share. Amazing presentations of the dishes. Flavors were great. My favorites were the pineapple rice and the pad thai. A must eat when I visit new york again.

We had a cute little booth at the side of the restaurant and had a great view of the other tables and the centre piece large chandelier in... More

My friend and I visited this restaurant after her glowing review to other coworkers. She did not disappoint! This restaurant is in Hells Kitchen among hundreds of other restaurants, but is definitely a hidden gem. I had the spicy Thai Basil noodle dish and it was hands down one of the best Thai dishes I've ever had. The sangria is... More

After seeing a show we walked to Room service on 9th Ave near 46th St. at 10pm it was crowded but we only had to wait about 10 minutes for a table for 4. The restaurant is long and narrow with a very large (maybe 5 foot square and 7 foot high), glass enclosed, chandelier in the center. I asked... More

A New Yorker recommended this place as a great value "swanky Thai" restaurant. I completely agree! We had the tuna tartare and the shrimp hot pot, and both were delicious. Presentation was elegant and prices were very reasonable.
