I had one of the most delicious meals of my entire year (and I live in NYC) at Thai Chi. The service was absolutely amazing - including a complimentary massage before dinner! The setting is beautiful, the food is outstanding - it is an evening you will remember!

My expertise concerning Thai food is rather limited, so it's difficult to speak authoritatively about it in comparison with other Thai restaurants around the world; but I thought it was delicious, and was nicely presented by an attentive but not imposing wait staff. The decor has a terrific atmosphere with a nice feeling of privacy, and the context of being... More

the prices are exaggeratedly high considering the food. you ask for something from the menu and the answer is always "sorry there is not but I will provide something similar for you". then you discover that it costs 3 times the price in the menu. NEVER AGAIN. these kinds of tricks are not fair and i reccommend to do not... More
