“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

We ordered in from here on a couple of occasions and it was fast, delicious and a good price. You must try to spring rolls, chicken/rice/ginger soup and the panang curry. Some of the things that we order back home, were deconstructed here (e.g. rice paper rolls, red duck curry) and we had to put it together ourselves. Not a problem, though - just unexpected!

“Outstanding and Authentic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

Viv is a fantastic find.
The food is delicious and the service is fast and friendly!
The value is also fantastic.
We have eaten there on three occasions over the last few weeks and have never been dissapointed. We love Thai food and this is really good.
Thoroughly recommend!

“Surprisingly good value Thai food in NYC”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

We stumbled a cross VIV Thai after visiting the Empire state Building. The decor is quite chic and has been quite well designed being a narrow shop front. Our server was welcoming and helpful. The food was good value and quite authentic ( ask for Thai style). The Singha beer was cheap, nicely chilled and a welcome treat after hours slogging it around the tourist attractions in NYC. We dined several times there during our NYC stay. Best dish was the Penang curry.

“Nice look but poor food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

Looks like they are lost in the fusion concept. The food is no thai nor international. Service is ok the interior as well but what normally metters in a restaurant is the food.
Go elsewhere

“Great Thai in Hell's Kitchen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

There were five of us on our first visit to V(IV). Everything we had was great. The Papaya salad is excellent as are the curry dishes. Beware, if you ask for spicy, spicy you׳ll get! The decor is better than most Thai restaurants and the service was excellent.
