“Aptly Named”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

We ate here because our son said it was the best Thai food he had eaten since moving to NYC. We agree, great choices on menu, good prices and nice atmosphere. We hope to come again someday.

“Luscious is a good description!”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

My husband, daughter and I were in New York City to visit a family member. We were out and about in the Upper East Side and wanted Thai food. We whipped out our phones and started searching for a nearby restaurant, which turned out to be Luscious Thai on 1st Avenue, between 60th and 61st Sts. To get there by subway, you can end at the Lexington Ave./59th stop by lines yellow N,Q, or R. The restaurant is .3 miles from the stop.

We went in at about 5:30 p.m., a bit early for dinner, and the atmosphere was soothing and elegantly understated. We were seated at a table by the back window, which was a glass wall looking onto a large, quiet courtyard. We ordered green curry and red curry, which is typical Thai fare, and it was sublime. Really worth going to this place. We are vegan, but there was a full menu of regular selections that looked really worth exploring.

The staff are lovely and so helpful, and the service was great. (I don't know what service would be like during a busy dinner, but my guess is that it would be just as accommodating.) If you are in the area and in the mood for Thai, do go.
