We visited the Land after a day of sightseeing in NYC. The food was excellent. Everything seemed freshly made rather than having canned sauces many other restaurants use. The restaurant itself has very tight seating. You are literally just inches from the next table. If you like to dine in quiet with space between tables, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for some really great Thai food and are okay with the tight quarters, you will not be disappointed.

As a group of five we were lucky to get a table in Land, as you can't book. As it was we squashed around a table for four by the doorway. The food made up for the slightly cramped conditions though- light, very tasty and fresh. Service was good and brisk but we were not rushed once we sat down. Even the desserts were delicious and we drank a decent white wine from the menu. The whole meal was extremely good value. Inside and outside was permanently full with a couple of people always waiting for a table and the delivery guys were kept very busy. I can understand why- if I lived nearby I would be a regular customer too!

We visited Land after having been to Top of the Rock. The weather was atrocious, but once inside this didn't matter. The restaurant itself is narrow and tightly packed-in. The service is fast, guests aren't hurried out, but once they have gone, the table is re-occupied with a minute. We ordered from the nicely varied menu and received our food quickly. It was delicious, hot and tasty.

If you like Thai food, this place is a must. Probably not the most ideal romantic setting, but we went there as a couple and had a lovely time. Rates as one of our favourite Thai restaurants and we look forward to a return visit when we are next in NYC!

Affordable and delicious Thai food. They give good portions.
Outdoor seating is available, but like I said, it does get crowded.
There is always a special, but you can take one of the dishes from the special and combine with something else. They're very accommodating.

We were willing to wait 40 minutes with no reservation, but were called back after 20 that a table would be ready. Service was great, food was terrific - our best meal in NYC. Definitely try the Crispy Calamari, Chicken Satay, Chicken Wraps, Green Papaya Salad and Shrimp Pad Thai!
