“Good service, mediocre food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

Generally order curry @ Thai restaurants as though there are variations from different states (from CA to DC to FL and NC) , it's usually a reliable,safe choice. Not here.

Quite disappointed with their seasoning and the overall taste. The appetizer of spring rolls were good though. With that said, really do not for see dining here in the future.

“If Locals Eat There...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

...you know is must be good! This is a place I consistently order from (very good papaya salad and fresh summer rolls), but you have to be quick when ordering. Some might mistake it for rudeness, but it is just a fast-paced restaurant. Five stars for the food, minus one for spotty service at times.

“Great red curry.....lovely food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Red curry was spicy and authentic Thai. Pad Thai was nice but not the best I had. But for a lunch time special the price was great and the food. Definitely go back again

“Great restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

Hoped in here one humid rainy summers evening. I was really hungover so only could stomach a couple of different starters. They were all delicious. The service was good too & very friendly and helpful. The night I was there, there was no AC on and I nearly melted. The door was open and the girl constantly walked around filling up glasses of water. Not sure if this was a once off or what, but it was the only negative. most places in NY in July are iced over from the AC.

Reasonably priced, nice friendly staff, great food. defo would return
