Good Thai food. Has a cozy atmosphere.
Conveniently located in NYC that gives it the extra appeal.
It's yummy-licious.

This beautiful, loft-like space with interesting art houses some of the yummiest Thai & Japanese in Brooklyn. Don't miss the noodle dishes and the sushi (especially the tuna)! The steamed mussels as an appetizer were a big hit.

This is the second time in three years that Planet Thailand had to close its doors dure to health code violation. You would think they learned their lesson the first time.

I will say the food is good but I have been there 4 times and only once was the service good and that was when it was REALLY slow. They act like you are a big pain in the butt if you ask where your drinks are after you have been sitting

I will start off with a positive... the food is tasty. but that's it. After waiting for 20 minutes for our drinks when we sat down, we then ordered our food. We finally get our appetizers, begin eating and two of the five entrees come out
