“I would go there again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

My husband had seen crowds go into this restaurants a few months ago. So we happened to be in the area and he suggested this place. I loved the authentic aroma and ambience of this place. It is not fancy, actually pretty cheap by NYC standards. Loved the food, would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a satisfying Thai meal. Regarding the food I ordered, the veg spring rolls were not stellar , but pad Thai was awesome.

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

This was our third visit to Pam Thai and we have yet to be disappointed. Reasonable prices and flavorful authentic Thai food. Take caution if you order the Kaeng Tai Pla...it is incendiary!

“Overrated, wouldn't recommend”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

I found this place on line, was on a top ten list for Hell's Kitchen so thought we'd give it a go. It's very ordinary looking but these are usually the best places. Not in this case though. Our starter ad both mains were very average, we had spring rolls and there was nothing in them, also think te sipping sauce was out of a bottle. A lot of the reviews say it's authentic but I didn't find that at all. I've been to Thailand a couple of times and the food is amazing, the food here was nothing special.

“Chanced upon by accident.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

Stunningly good quality food. Excellent selection of vegetarian dishes - mock duck was exquisite. And - it's cheap!

“Excellent, inexpensive Thai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

A busy place that seems to be able to cater to a large walk-in crowd. Not very assuming décor, but a very large menu, with a variety of excellent dishes, well prepared and delivered by smiling, courteous waiters. And not a lot over $10!. Great food, great value. We went back a second time during the week.
