Good selection, delicious flavors and spices, small tight space but worth the wait. Appetizers chicken satay, chive roll, dumplings all very good. Entrees dancing chicken, drunken noodle, massaman curry all very good too, perfectly spicy, plentiful portions. Service friendly and attentive even though they were busy. Our favorite meal in New York, and (bonus!) the least expensive one! Recommend this... More

A few of our friends were there for dinner after a 2-day conference. The food is so good, specially the Swimming Duck. For appetizers we sampled everything in the menu and all was delicious.

FOOD WAS VERY GOOD!!! Restaurant small and intimate but very loud. It was definitely a relief when we stepped outside. Wait staff not on point. Got my dish wrong and I had to ask for the check when we were obviously finished.

Exceptionally good food, flavors all present plus the perfect amount of heat If you want it up a notch (heat), just ask....Service was good, portions appropriate and pricing was right, it was a bit noisy due to the fact that your rubbing elbows with the party sitting next to you. The dining area was a bit small maybe 25x30 but... More

Nice little restaurant near Columbus Circle and Whole Foods. A bit noisy but great dishes and fast service. Recommend calling ahead for a reservation. We had a mango salad (spicy), an order of spring rolls and a curry dish with tofu which was plenty for two people. They do make dishes with varying spice level so be sure to ask.

Excellent food and large dishes. Not expensive. The food is a little spicy, but lower than other Thai restaurants. Enjoyed my second visit there.

Visited last Thursday evening with my partner. Had the best pad Thai ever. Food served swiftly. Staff very friendly. Great athmosphere with mixed crowd. Good prices. Would visit again when back in the city.

My wife, two young kids and I went for dinner as we stayed next door. The girls (7/10) ate an order and a half of the dumplings each! Great vegetarian fare, particularly the appetizers. Lots of interesting entrees to choose from. A great Thai dinning experience overall. Try to sit in the front window seat for a great photo op!

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.
