The thai food here is delicious. The location is great and the atmosphere inside the restaurant is very cool. The restaurant is family owned and you can tell that the food is very authentic. I recommend this place strongly.

My favorite Thai place in NYC. Everything I have had here (and I have had many items from every category) was better than most places, and some truely exceptional. Favorites include Tom Ka Gai and Tom Yum soups (spicy chicken chunk soups with or without coconut milk), the vietnamese style summer rolls, and the Pad Prik King (spicy beef with green beans).
Portions are generous and your food will get to you fresh and without excessive waiting. The only thing I don't like is the tables not having enough legroom, but just work around it!
It's true that they are reluctant to alter the spicyness of their dishes on request, since they have been around a while and ""perfected"" the dishes.
Be sure to order the ""brown rice"" (rather than the plainer white stuff). It's is especially good with the spicier dishes.
Very reasonably priced. No experience with delivery - only ""dine in"".
I can't believe the negative reviews of this place. No idea what happend there....

This was my first time in this restaurant. I ordered a salmon dish. In the first bite my mouth was full of fish bones. Each bite had various amounts of fish bones. Sometimes the bones got stuck between my teeth, and I had to pull them out. Each bite of the fish was an adventure in danger. It seems that I spent more time taking the bones out of my mouth than chewing and swallowing the fish. The flesh of the fish was mushy and had an off taste. The sauce was bland and tasteless. Ordered tea. Was given a cup of hot water and a tea bag--for self brewing, I suppose.\r
This was my first time in this restaurant, also my last.

Make a reservation to be safe. The waiters cart around their wares, maybe a bit too much, but you can always tell them that you have enough food! Get the sticky rice and the spring rolls. But everything seems to be good.

I ordered the lunch Chicken Noodle Soup, it tasted a bit average, a little bit too much sugar and salt were flavored into the soup and they didn't make it spicy enough when I ask them to.

Have had a great experience with their other locations, but a terrible delivery experience with this place. They completely mixed up our order and then refused to send the corrected order, instead arguing with us about the original order and saying it might be a problem to deliver the corrected items because they were less than the $10 delivery minimum. Unbelievable.

I love thai food, my brother owns a restaurant in Thailand and I am very picky about the taste of the dishes. Their Pad Thai is tasty, but their curries are their best dishes. I highly recommend the massaman curry, it has the perfect balance of curry to meat/veggies, and you get a huge portion for the price. The atmosphere leaves much to be desired, but the staff is attentive and the service is very quick. I usually get delivery and it is fast and very hot when it arrives.

Thai chains aren't all that popular in the city, but this particular chain tends to crank out decent Thai for little money. Their delivery is better here as its closer to my office. The staff is nice and very accommodating.
