It was a cold cold day in New York. We landed into this place for some noodle soup and we were not disappointed. They offer many choices of noodle, stir-fried or with soup. The price was very reasonable for such location. I am sure we will go back for more noodle!

Finding this restaurant was the perfect place in Manhattan near Broadway which not only was affordable for Manhattan standard but was tasty , quiet and service we excellent. Was looking for something for my birthday that was intimate and didn't need a reservation and looked very formal with a casual atmosphere. Without alcohol this restaurant is easily a great price...

This was the perfect place for a quick but delicious dinner before a Carnegie Hall concert. It was raining/sleeting when we arrived and stepped down a few steps in to Topaz. It was very warm inside, and as other's have said, it was dark. The walls are covered with dark wood - the real thing - not some tacky paneling.... More

I can say that this is a phenomenal place for either dine in or take out. While not all the dishes are “traditional”, the food is full of flavor and do present great takes on traditional dishes. They have always gone above and beyond in not only providing the traditional fare, but also infusing innovative touches to standard dishes. The... More

The Thai's are famous for there spices and the way they incorporate them into the food. Topaz neglected to use any spice in our food. Even though we asked for extra spicy 🌶

We went for a late lunch and ordered our usual fare of pad thai noodles, spring rolls and some tom yum soup. While they are tasty, of course it cannot compare to Thai food we get in Asia. The spring rolls were rather bland. Having said this, the restaurant has good ambiance, it is really busy and seems to have... More

I rstrongly recommend to try this restaurant. It has a quaint style of dining with Thailand decors in a dim light resto. They sure serve the best Thai food. It is almost like a fine dining but the price is good with the quantity of food served. I would go back here over and over again to try every dish.

I have been frequenting the TOPAZ for the past 20 years. Can't be be beat for value and NYC ambiance. Yes, it is small and cramped but I think that is part of it's charm. Food is good and affordable.

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.
