Food was very good. It took me longer to decide on the food than to make the dish. Nice menu. Only complaint is acoustics of the restaurant. I sat in the 6 top that looks out onto the street and I swear it was like all 10 tables were right there with me. It was a full restaurant just too... More

The bright yellow awning attracted our attention, and as we were in the mood for Thai but didn't want to trek too far before the theater, we popped in and were very pleasantly surprised. From the fresh noodles to the excellent spring rolls to the peanut curry, the food was fresh, tasty, and manageable portions. We got there early and... More

My daughter and I were looking for a great, quick meal and found it. This is a small restaurant tucked away behind Carnegie Hall. Food was good, atmosphere was nice and the price was nice!

This place is ok for a quick lunch. It wasn't as flavourful or as spicy even though we did mention that at the start. The Phai Thai and curry puff were disappointing. There was hardly any hint of lemon grass, ginger or lime leaf in the Tom Yum. They were clearly not working with fresh herbs. The peanut sauce for... More

Having read the reviews and loving Thai food we went to Topaz. The place was busy but we were able to get a table right away. The appetizers were delicious and the main courses were tasty as well. The only unThai aspect were the size of the portions. They are huge! All in all, I would recommend this place for... More

This is a tiny restaurant which happened to be next door but one to our hotel. After a busy day sightseeing, when we didn't want to want very far, it seemed that this would be ideal venue. We knew how small it was so made sure we booked a table for the evening in question. We arrived at the appointed... More

Topaz is our fave restaurant in NYC. Great Thai food and reasonably priced. Chicken pad thai is $12. Definitely a go-to place for us every trip!

We love this place. We've been coming here for years. Anything we order is amazing and tasty. Our favorites include the thai tacos, the panang curry, calamari, thai iced tea, and the clay pot shrimp. We've only had one experience when I ordered the spicy basil noodle with shrimp. The shrimp had a funny taste in my opinion and I... More

My partner and I went to dinner at TOPAZ THAI AUTHENTIC. What an excellent experience it was. The restaurant is very small, maybe at best 15 tables. The service were excellent, the food was exceptional and very very yummy. We order the calamari and the spring rolls to start with. For the Main course we ordered and we ordered Dancing... More

Best meal I had on our trip to NYC. I had a dish I don't see on the web menu, chicken diced with an asian pepper sauce. Not too spicy, great flavor, served with rice and great broccoli cooked with a great texture. Spouse had a red curry with vegies and tofu and he also like my choice better as... 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.
