Always pass by this place and always wanted to try. Since there aren't really any Thai restaurants by me and I was craving, we went here. The portions were good sizes and fairly priced. The food was very good and the happy hour cocktails were not bad either. I hear they have a nice outside sitting area, but it wasn't... More

We got takeout last night. Chicken peanut curry and Panang chicken curry. Both were very tasty and a good size serving. If you don't like things spicy, the curry here might not be your best bet. I got the peanut curry because it was supposed to be not spicy. My daughter still struggled with the heat!

Not busy on a Tuesday. The $10 lunch special includes an appetizer and an entree. I had the crispy rolls (2 miniatures) and the chicken Pad Thai. It was tasty and filling. My partner had the dumpling for appy, and the Penang curry chicken and rice main. It was excellent. Great friendly service. Cool indie pop/soft rock music inside. I... More

It became our weekly Thai restaurant since we back living in NY. Place is very clean, food is delicious, and staff is very friendly! It's a small place but just perfect to make you feel very comfortable. Love it!

We went out with some friends with kids for New Year's Eve dinner. I have to say, for NY city, for anywhere really they have 5-star service with a smile, and for that reason alone they are worth the visit. When it comes to food though, I found their offerings to be a bit bland. The chicken satay was ok.... More

Pad Thai, soups, Crab Cake were also very delicious. The staff is very friendly and organized. The food was prepared very quickly. Special thanks... More

Their thai food is out of this world. I usually have the grilled salmon with pineapple fried rice and string beans. So delish. The ambiance of the restaurant is modernly beautiful. The staff is always super friendly and helpful. Price is pretty ok. Amazing place over all

Born serves up some delicious Thai food! Our group sampled the crispy rolls, chicken satay, the se-ew noodles, basil fried rice, and panang curry. All really well executed with authentic flavours ringing true. And don't forget to try the cocktails - they don't serve liquor (vodka, etc) but make some delicious sake cocktails.
