If you care more about finding a really cheap meal than good food, this place might be OK for you. They have very cheap for New York dinner specials...ranging from $10.95 to $15.95 or more depending on the time you arrive, and include several courses.
We had been going here since discovering it at least 8 years ago, and it seems to have experienced a management change along the way or simply cutting costs and quality, but it has definitely gone downhill and declined in quality since we started going there. We went back on our Jan. 2013 trip after not having been there in about 3 years. There used to be fresh orchids at each table, and a clean, white airy feeling to the room. The room has been changed and now has an ugly dark bar taking up half of the front of the room, which is strange since they actually don't have a licence, at least not when we were there. Perhaps they had one but lost it at some point? Not sure why else you would install a huge bar when you cant serve alcohol. Back wall now has an ugly mirror all over it and big ugly dangling chandelier that definitely doesn't go with the clean, spare look the place used to have.
We ordered the pre-theatre special, for about $15. 95 includes spring roll or dumplings, soup, salad, main course and dessert. But the quality of the food, which had so impressed us when we first started going here, has sadly declined. My coconut soup was mostly broth and had only a few pieces of chicken and tasted too salty. Salad was OK if not exciting, with a lot of peanut sauce. My main course, chicken with cashew nuts, was drowning in an extremely salty soy sauce dressing that left my mouth burning from the high sodium. Nice green tea ice cream for dessert. I realize that for $15.95 in new york, that's a steal, but just wanted to warn people not to expect great Thai food. IT will fill you up but I've had far better and will probably skip this place on my next visit. There must be better Thai in the area.
