I stopped here for lunch and was very impressed with the food. I ordered the Pad Thai noodles. It was fantastic!! My husband had a miso soup with tofu and a cashew chicken dish. They both had amazing flavor without all the salty taste I'm used to with these types of dishes! The decor is cool and simplistic (Ikea-style). I will definitely be back!!

I went here a few times with friends. The food is very good from what we tried of the large menu - which is actually a drawback; larger menus generally risk being inconsistent with flavour. The wild mushroom dumplings are amazing! We tried dishes that were highlighted and were not disappointed. The drinks are ok, but nothing special. The service doesn't stand out much either. Overall, it's a nice place to enjoy food.

Ordered their lunch special Southeast Asian Sandwich with Flank Steak. I had high hope really. It turned out to be a bit disappointing.

The steak is a little dry and the sandwich really lacks flavor. I added on the green mayo that comes with it as well as some marinated pickle onion but that doesn't help the situation.

I guess maybe their other dishes will be better?

This is one of the many thai restaurants on 9th Ave between 45th and 55th streets.

It it purportedly thai-french fusion.

It was definitely cheap, between 7-11 dollars for an entree.

The interior is of the typical bright orange plasticy variety. The cups and flatwear are from ikea and say so on the bottoms. Quirky that they didn't go to a restaurant supply store.

My friend ordered the fake duck and she loved it. Two weeks later she said it was the best duck she ever had. I told her it was tofu.

The menu and check were music-themed, which I didn't understand. The menu was on a vinyl record and I can't remember how the check came.

I think we were a little ignored at lunch; we were the only ones in there. But it was hot that day and they had good air-conditioning so all was fine.

Cons: None

reading all these reviews makes me wonder what all the fuss is about. i went to breeze twice and i loved it both times. the wait staff was incredibly friendly and everything i ordered was delicious. i don't know if the people that wrote these bad reviews like thai food or if they are some kind of undercover restaurant connoisseurs, but their reviews are just plain wrong. when i went, i sampled the thai spring rolls and the crab and ripe mango summer rolls. both were delicious. i also had the seafood in banana cup, which is actually served in a huge leaf formed into a bowl. most of the seafood had been pureed with spices into a creamy broth, and it was incredibly rich and flavorful. i also had the beef massaman curry with thai roti. the beef itself was a little tough, but the curry sauce was well seasoned and the roti was soft and delicious. i would order this dish again, but next time i would substitute the beef for shrimp. all in all, i give breeze two thumbs up. i would, and do plan on going there again for affordable and yummy thai food.

Breeze may possibly be my most hated NYC restaurant experience ever. I used to live a couple blocks away and watched many restaurants move in the neighborhood, go out of business, and be replaced with another in a few days, and I always marveled at the fact that Breeze somehow survived. The place tries to charm you inside with its trendy/hip appearance, but when you enter you can see the decor is absolutely gaudy and generic (you can easily see that every piece of lighting, decoration, even their silverware, is from IKEA). They blast loud "trendy" techno music even during lunch. Their menu is printed on a freaking CD JEWEL CASE and on a RECORD (as in a piece of vinyl). Way over the top, totally cheap and cheesy looking. We actually just stayed because my friend wanted to pick up a cute waiter he saw through the window.

Decor is one thing, but what about the food? We ordered 2 soups, and although it was "fancily" served to us with the veggies/meat in a bowl and they brought the broth over in a separate container that they pour in in front of you at your table, both were so horrendously salty they were inedible. All 4 people I was with could not eat them due to the salt levels. The entrees we ordered were tiny and mysteriously bland. We sent the food back.

All I can say is the service was good, especially since they took their terrible food back and reimbursed us without argument. Do everyone in Hell's Kitchen a favor and stop patronizing the place so it can be replaced by another more worthy business.

My meal at Breeze was ok--my boyfriend's meal was absolutely terrible. He ordered the braised beef and the meat actually looked like something you would serve to a dog. The staff was nice about substituting chicken curry instead, but that turned out to be pretty lousy also. Then of course they put the hideous beef (which was more expensive) on the bill instead of the merely sub-par chicken curry which we had to ask them to change. I also didn't see where the "fusion" part came into the menu...seemed like pretty standard Thai to me. There are so many options on Ninth Avenue, I wouldn't ever bother with this joint again.

Stopping at Breeze for a drink after work was a wonderful idea...I loved the ambience and the bartenders were very sweet and helpful when I asked a million questions about their numerous martinis. The St. Louis was awesome, strong but tasty...I didn't have dinner here, but I'd highly recommended Breeze for an after-work or after-dinner cocktail.

Cons: It gets pretty crowded at the bar...many chairs for a not so long bar.

I landed up here for a friend's bday. I saw the place and was like wha? french-thai fusion? but I was very pleasantly surprised. The place has a nice decor, staff is friendly and the bar serves up an interesting assortment of drinks. I felt the prices are very reasonable, service was good and the food was delicious. Seems like it might be a nice date spot too. I will definitely be going back.

The menu is creative, yet you can have the standard Thai food as well. A lot of thought went into the sauces and the food is strong enough to call attention to itself. I am very particular about restaurants in NYC and this one is outstanding. A real Gem. Ive been back which is saying a lot.
You can pay more, but your won't find better.

The theater district is usually crammed with your standard fare, traditional restaurants. Breeze with its Thai food offerings and cool Modern decor is a welcome break in monotony. The restaurant is small but done in a cool white and orange coloring. Menus are inventive with cd jewel case serving as menus. The food is good but, not outstanding. I had the butternut squash ravioli in a thai yellow curry sauce which was very good but other items were avg. The waitstaff was outstanding. Overall, go for a meal, not for a special occassion.

what a pleasant surprise to find in the generally touristy and overpriced theater district this gem of a restaurant with yummy dishes prepared with a real sense of flavor and invention, and not the usual banal asian fare. This place is good for food before or after the theater or just drinks -- the cool and festive atmosphere adds to the fun and makes it a relaxing spot, not to be missed.

the food was quite good but the portion was small compared to the price you pay for it. the atmosphere is trendy, i think it's better to come here for a drink rather than dinner.

On the outside Breeze looks like a cool, trendy upscale restaurant. However, once inside the charm is lost. It is very noisy inside and the music is irritating to listen to due to a bad sound system. Unfortunately, the food along with the unhelpful service doesn't make up for the atmosphere. For the price I expected much more. Very disappointed.

If you don't mind the loud techno hammering in the background (which isn't really overbearing) this is a cool restaurant to visit. The food standard I think can vary depending on what's ordered. I had the bass with watercress greens and must say it was perfect in every respect - finished every last grain of rice with the flavorful sauce. My friends chicken breast on the other hand seemed dry so I wouldn't recommend that dish (although the sauce was good). Still, this small modern eatery with cool menus is a good pick if you're looking for somewhere near Times Square that isn't diner-like. Ask for a recommendation if you're not sure what to order.

The Breeze is over-the-top. The atmosphere is sheek and hip with candles and flat screen plasmas playing great music. The wait staff is friendly and fun and the drinks are unique, stiff and VERY good!! The food was the best!! Fresh and healthy and full of flavor. We highly recommend this restaurant.

what a pleasure to finally find a great place to eat in the theater district offering smart asian fusion fare, tasty but not overspicy, with a european twist. Refreshing cocktails too and a bar scene that heats up after dinner hours. Service is friendly and helpful, more so than in most area eateries -- prices are moderate considering the quality of the food. We were delighted and plan to return whenever we are in the nabe. Bravo Breeze!
