“Excellent Thai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2010

Not sure what people expect, but my wife and I thought this Thai restaurant was as good as it gets! It's not fancy, but it's nice a cozy and the food is wonderful and reasonably priced! I had the garlic shrimp and my wife had the Chow Fun noodles and both were excellent. Saw people coming in for take-out dinners, and, if we lived close by, we'd do the same on a regular basis! The restaurant is at the corner of 34th street and Lexington Ave, and right next door to the Affinia Dumont Hotel, so it's about a 10 minute walk from Grand Central Station. This should be rated higher than it is!

Tried the sesame chicken... Which tasted like plastic. The calamari was tasteless and chewy.
Will not be returning.
