My husband and I frequently have lunch at Royal Siam. We usually order from the lunch special menu. This restaurant has a very nice atmosphere it is not one of those places that seem to be designed to amplify noises. The waitstaff are very courteous and efficient. There is a Thai menu as well as Japanese one. They also have... More

One of the best values for lunch, Thai food or maki rolls are made to order. Excellent food with service to match.

Here's a good choice in Chelsea on 8th Avenue. You have a choice between Japanese and Thai cuisine. Unlike most of the neighborhood, the prices are reasonable and the food very good. I had a dinner bento box and was quite satisfied. I was a little disappointed that an Asian resaturant served tea with a teabag - otherwise everything was... More

We've dined here twice in a week. The staff is great, food is amazing and ambiance is serene. We love the Thai dumplings, the vegetable pad Thai and spring rolls were also delicious. The place is clean and the prices reasonable.

Should have been wary as the place had just 4 diners on a Saturday evening - seemed to be busy with take outs- inedible Pad Thai, Overcooked salty Sea Bass - Sushi special was also bad-

We went in by mistake, confusing this place with Spice, which got great reviews. The place stinks. Literally. The smell was so awful I felt nauseous. But we thought hey, the food's got to be amazing if this stinky place got such great reviews. Well, no. The worst Tom yum I have ever had.

Good food. Panang curry or fried rice are tasty. However takes over an hour to deliver when ordered on seamless even though we are almost next door.

i have had just about everything from the menu and everything is perfect! Only issue I have is the small amount of rice they give unless you make two orders of it.

If I lived in Chelsea, I think I would eat here at least once a week. They've recently added a sushi bar to their delicious Thai offerings. Never a line, always a pleasure.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
