Interesting menus, but several items not available and blackboard not updated to show that. In particular the only tofu was boiled or steamed, was rubbery and tasted of nothing. A bit hard when you have taken out and all the way back to your hotel....More

Found this place half a block away from our hotel. The Tom Yum Koong was excellent, lots of large shrimp and mushrooms. The Mango with Blue Pea and Sticky Rice was something the lady in front of us got very excited by, so we took...More

Super cozy and cute. You can eat in for a quick bite or take out on the fly. I popped in this place because it looked adorable and had a good sized menu. They allow customizations and are reasonable prices.

I have been coming here for the past 4.5 years. To begin, the food was on point and would get 5 stars. Lately, food preparation is rushed, they increased the prices and the food taste bland. They get 3 stars for having the meat being...More

You will not be disappointed if you order from Rhong Tiam for delivery. This is the best thai I have had in New York and my husband and I order from them almost every week! You cannot go wrong with the summer rolls which are...More

Flatiron District
Offering many of the city’s best restaurants and shops
