“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

We had a wonderful meal in the outdoor patio. The food was authentic and very enjoyable. We had the satay, Masaman Curry, and a unique mango fish curry. I ordered the Masaman Curry at medium hotness. It was too hot for me and I like hot food. I mentioned it to my waiter and he took the dish back to the kitchen. After a short wait, the dish came back with lesser heat. I think the re-did the curry sauce from scratch. Our waiter was very friendly and knew the menu well. Other wait staff was always around to fill the water glasses or get you something you needed.

We came on a Sunday night and did not have any wait. The outdoor patio was very pleasant and much quieter than the main dining room.

Highly recommend this restaurant for those who like Thai food or want to try something new. Be careful with hotness of the food when ordering.

“very enjoyable food”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

a bit too pricey for thai food for me - but quality was very good and everything was fresh. Very nice variety and BYOB - $5 corkage fee. nice atmosphere. Street parking available.

“Great food, nice atmosphere. A+”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

We come to PA yearly and make a point to eat at Nicky's at least once if not more. Great food, lots of vegetarian and meat options, spicy and mild dishes; a bit for everyone in a party. We haven't had a bad experience at Nicky's yet. Staff is courteous and attentive, restaurant is cozy but not awfully cramped, decor is a nice touch.

We prefer lunch over dinner as it does get a bit loud when the floor is full. If you plan to come to dinner with 4+, make a reservation because Nicky's isn't a large place.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Nicky's has excellent Thai food - but the space is very tight. Be prepared for a long wait and to be VERY close to fellow diners.

“Lovely Patio”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

We recently dined at Nicky's Thai Kitchen on the North Side of Pittsburgh in celebration of our 15th wedding anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on their lovely patio as we sipped the delicious Riesling we had brought (it's BYOB)! We sat next to the wonderful fountain which just added a little something to our evening! This was our second visit to Nicky's and lucky for us we sat at the same table as our previous visit! This restaurant is located conveniently close to the Rivers Casino where we continued our celebration. My red curry with chicken was deliciously spicy! The service was a little spotty at times but the patio and food more than made up for it!
