The place is small and cute. I ordered the drunken noodles and they were delicious. My husband ordered the beef salad and he had to order another dish afterwards because the salad was too small. Still it was delicious. Another negative point is that it was cold inside the restaurant. I noticed other guests wearing they coat while eating. Lao... More

This place is a hidden gem in Upper West Manhattan. It serves fresh, honest and great tasting Thai food. The pad thai is one of the best I have tasted and I have come back for this dish several times without being disappointed. Land is very reasonably priced and has good service.

What a wonderful surprise! I had the Jungle Curry with Steamed Tofu and Vegetables with brown rice and it was perfection! It had a three-star spicy rating but they toned it down to medium upon request. Nice chunks of tofu and mixed vegetables with cashews. I sopped up the curry with the rice and spoon--too good to leave behind! For... More

This is a great Thai restaurant on the West side. Much has been made about the fact that it's "always crowded,". However, on two weekday evenings, Land was busy, but not packed. The good news is that the decor is attractive in a simple understated way. The bad news is that the music is generic--Thai music would be much better.... More

We stumbled across this little Thai Restaurant on Amsterdam Ave, Upper West Side. What a find. New York is not the cheapest place to eat. ''Land' however represents good value for money and was not only one of the cheapest meals we had it was divine! The food is authentic, well balanced with fresh produce and good quality meat. We...

Land was listed on our hotel's list of suggested restaurants for Asian food. We were glad we took the recommendation. The actual restaurant is small, but there are more tables on the boardwalk. Service was good,the waitress confirmed several times that my wife wanted the dishes to be "hot" not mild. I chose dishes that were mild - and they... More

It is a small place and they won't seat you until your entire party has arrived but other than that I have nothing but praise for this restaurant. We got to pick from numerous first courses and second courses for our $9.00 lunch. We both got the pad thai and it was great. We shared our first courses (calamari and... More

The food was very tasty, good and authentic. It reminded me of my time in Thailand. I found the prices cheap, we paid around 15 dollars each for an excellent meal. I would definitely recommend

We tried mixed appetizer (good), thai pad (we disliked very much), crab meat and vegetables rice (son and so) and mix vegetables with tofu (not bad). We had 2 beers and spent 63 €. For us was a big delusion, what a pity.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
