We did the multiple course tasting menu and it was awesome. Only complaint was that the food came almost too quickly. Would have been nice to have a little new time between courses to enjoy the experience. But we were there in a Friday night and they were busy. Probably ready to move in the next set of peeps.

I was looking forward to trying Kittichai for a long time and jumped at the opportunity for Restaurant Week. I was impressed by the overall ambience of the place, dark and romantic, plus great options for outdoor eating as well. The service was confusing. I was served by 2 different waiters which was strange and was not overall impressed by... More

I had the mahi mahi curry with a side of jasmine rice for 33$ total. This curry was excellent. Probably one of the best curry's I have ever had in a restaurant. It was lightly sweet, spicy & full of veggies. Service was good and the restaurant is beautiful. I will be returning. Also, the curry was gluten free. They... More

Had a bad night. Originally given a table where we were overwhelmed by paint fumes from nearby renovation. After complaining, we're moved to better table. Food average. One of our party ordered duck that was so tough it could barely be cut. I had ribs that were average at best. Shrimp tempura was greasy. Just an overall bad night. Would... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by our concierge at the Ritz Battery Park and it was great. The menu is interesting as it is unique and not your typical Thai food. The roti with peanut sauce was great, the stir fried veggies and rice dishes are also yummy. The ambience and vibe in the restaurant is upscale and classy.... More

At least they have tried to break away from the almost standard Japanese menu you see when you eat in one of these styles of restaurant. The decor itself was really nice. The waitresses were good and from a food perspective, they tried to be different. Interesting combination of flavours. Nice enough but wouldn't say spectacular. When we left it... More

A very enjoyable reunion dinner with friends here. The food was great and we all thought it good value. The ambience is pleasant (fairly calm and peaceful) and the service was good. I can't think of anything negative to say - and why should I, as really it was a great night enjoyed by all. Overall well worth it -... More
