If you want something offer than pizza and BBQ food this little gem of a restaurant is the place for you! It offers mouth watering food which took me at least two glasses of wine to decide what to have as it all sounded delicious! In the end I went for a duck dry noodle dish with their HOME MADE...

A tiny hole in the wall with authentic Thai cuisine. Easy to walk by - great food - great service - a must if you love Thai! Pad Woon Sen - off the chain. Steamed vegetable dumplings - amazing !

Upon recommendation, we gave Pure Thai a go. The restaurant is very small, there was a 45 minute wait to get a table but it was worth it. We ordered the spring rolls and signature Pad Thai. Food was great and service super fast. Pricing was more than reasonable.

although they are great at everything, the coffee here is just to die for. I know coffee.. that's what I said. the Thai iced coffee is a must have when you visit. I promise it wont let you down.

Excellent Thai food at a little "hole in the wall" in Chelsea. This place is small and does a raging take out service, but we were lucky to get a table at the back just after the lunch rush. We had the steamed dumplings and pork buns to start, which were fresh and very tasty. I had the PadThai which... More

The flavors were "off" to me. I am from Portland, Maine where there are plenty of Thai restaurants some really stand out as authentic. (My husband loved his selection but he is not writing the review.) We stood in line waiting for the restaurant to open at noon. We got the second to last table because people cut in line.... More

Excellent Thai! Check the menu for specials. We had a Tom Yum and a beef dish that included an omelet, both specials and TO DIE FOR. Arrived around 7:30 and would have had a 50 minute wait so did takeout because our HomeAway apartment was only a few blocks away. Glad we didn't skip it!

In a neighborhood with tremendous amount of Thai restaurants, Pure really stands out as extremely authentic and friendly Get there early as the wait can be rather long as it is pretty small on the inside

I have been to this restaurant many times and always had a good time. Yesterday night I decided never to set foot in here again. We were seated in a 8 seat table (we were 3 and there were 2 other people + 3 empty seats). After being asked 100 times in 10 minutes if we were ready to order,... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
