I'll be another 5 star rating diner for Pok Pok. The tastes are miraculous. It's just plain good. I hope they never change.

My Dad and I went here. I really liked it and he didn't. Might not be a good place for older folks, but is a good place for younger people.

I recommend trying lots of things. There is a wide variety of food dishes and the more you try the more you'll find one you like.

The food's great and everyone knows it. I love the circus-like street food atmosphere inside and we ended up staying for hours. Loved it.

Great food, I love the wings and the bbq ribs as well. I also tried the one in Brooklyn and have to say they are both excellent (the wait in Brooklyn was about two hours though..). Lots of options dine inside/outside or hit the takeout

Since most people Have had negative experiences, I was kind of worried. I got the boar's collar and sticky rice and my worries totally subsided. I would come here again just to see if it stand up to my 4 star first experience.

Okay, here's the deal.... expectations were high for Pok Pok, but in the end... well let's just say My stomach wasn't doing so well....
First off, this place is a haven for the hipster crowd. There is an attempt to be all Manhattan...

After having been sung its praises by several friends we finally made it to Pok Pok last night. A party of five, we tried several dishes and everything was good, but not 'over the top' great to my mind.

Positively the most unique Thai food I have ever experienced. Don't come here expecting Pad Thai. My friend lives in the area and recommended that we go here. I am so bummed we don't have a place like this in San Diego. You HAVE to try one of their cocktails with drinking vinegar. Sounds really weird, but one of the most refreshing drinks I have ever had! We had picked from a few things on the menu, including the Fish Sauce Wings, the Kaeng Hung Leh, and the Neua Naam Tok. The flavors were like fire works in your mouth. Also, make reservations if you have a party of 5 or more. It looked as though the wait would have been super long if we had not done so.

Out-of-control delicious food. It's nothing like the run-of-the-mill thai restaurants we're used to. Don't let the crowds and the wait keep you away. You have to try the addictive wings and the incomparable coconut curry chicken noodle soup. Don't be afraid of the pickled vegetables and condiments--they're what take everything up a notch.

So happy to be the first to recommend Pok Pok. I've been going there since they opened as a little cart on Division. Their wings rock - get them hot and spicy along with a crisp steak salad, some coconut rice and you've got an amazing meal. The drinks coming out of the bar are top notch. You can do no wrong at this joint.
