This busy spot is worth the wait. And our wait wasn’t long because they put food out quickly. We had the steamed pork buns (presented like a typical bao) to start and two wok stir-fried dishes. Great flavors that were different from many Thai spots...More

We went here on the evening of the pride parade and expected not to get a seat but after a 30 minute wait at the bar next door we were seated swiftly. The menu isn’t huge, but the food was even better than expected.

Said to be one of the best Thai restaurants in City, we actually had lunch here twice while in New York. The reason is more than acceptable price and large portions
