“Fabulous!”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

Best Thai food we ever had! Everyone at our table (8 of us) totally cleaned our plates. The prices were very reasonable, the ingredients very fresh and flavorful. The service was also top-notch. We will definitly eat here again when we are in town, highly recommended!

“Nothing special to wait for. ”
Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

Before we left, I called them to make sure they were open on a Sunday...we arrived and there was a closed sign from 4-4:30. We decided to wait for them to open because of their great reviews. The food was not spicy. If you are brought extra rice beware that you will be charged for it. They were also under staffed, so it took us a while to place and receive our order. Food was just ok.

“Delicious Thai Food - perfect for those gluten free and vegetarians!”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

Small, casual and a bit crowd, but worth it. My daughter had the traditional pad thai with rice noodles and I had the gluten free, vegetable pad made with zucchini noodles. The sauce was so delicious on the zucchini noodles I needed a spoon! It was a bit pricier than average Thai food (About $26 for the two dishes), but the portions were very large. We brought home enough food for another meal. Great for a tasty, healthy meal.

“Excellent Thai food, Nice Atmosphere, Reasonable Prices”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Tried Ngam for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed it. I have eaten at more that a dozen Thai restaurants and this is the best so far. The menu is varied and inventive and it has a nice atmosphere. The service was very friendly and prompt and while the prices are higher than some Thai restaurants, it is a good value for the food they serve up.

“Best Thai food in NYC, beautifully presented”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Best Thai food in NYC, expertly prepared and beautifully presented. I am so excited about this place. Everything we tried---Autumn Harvest Basket, Chaing Mai fries, papaya and apple salad, Tom Yum soup, Cutie Duckling, Calamari with squid-ink noodles--- was absolutely delicious and spot-on. I loved the fact that they made the papaya salad authentically, with plenty of fish sauce; too many restaurants cater to the blander "American" palate and compromise their taste. Cocktails were also inventive and refreshing. The service was quick, efficient and friendly: a great combination. What a great find!
