We have been to this restaurant many times and last night was the first time it disappointed. The pad Thai was gloppy and and overly sweet and the portion was too big. Also, the Som Tum (Papaya salad) was also too sweet, too much sauce and

Good menu for all tastes with fresh and generous portions. We were there on a Tues night and service was good. Adequate decor and comfort, so go for authentic food.

This is an easy one- really good Thai food.
We love Thai but sometimes it could be a hit and miss... but not in this place (at least for now for us) we went there a few times and everyone at the table were happy with their meal.

We went to Pam Thai Restaurant (20/03/10)
First time it was very nice place. After that we ordered food : appertize Grilled calamari it was good and oxtailed soup too. Then entree coming we ordered panang curry with chicken and kao pad kra paw with squid, both of food are very salty. Panang curry have just only salty taste, they mixed not too much a coconut milk. This is like a soup. I went here with my friends. They are Thai's people but they said "this is not panang: soup very clear". Then we asked the waitress, she said this is panang for foreigner eat but why you said this is a real Thai.
Then kao pad kra paw squid too. Very salty.
About the sevice waitress one very nice and another one she very horrible. My friends feel like a she look down us.

Becareful if you want to try a real thai food...!!!

Good luck...

This place is actually Pam Real Thai Food. It's very good food in a very simple setting. The pineapple fried rice with shrimp is really good. The service is fine and the prices are good.

We went to this place since I moved only a street away, but it was a horrid experience!
The food is very salty, and they charged me extra money for a veggie curry and then only put bamboo shoots in it!

Their online menu is also old, so beware, the prices the much higher than stated in the menus (a nasty shock for my friend who ordered online and the bill came for almost twice the amount stated online)

Think twice before going here, there are plenty of good thai places within 20 feet of this place....

I went to Real Pam on 10/31/2008 with my brother and his wife. We ordered 3 different dinners and there was hardly any chicken or for that matter any food in the dinners. I complained to the owner who stated to me that times are tough and his prices are low. He was very rude and disengenious. Well i was looking for a nice meal, and to have an attitude like that i was dismayed. I wasn't asking for a lowering of the check i was just trying to help him since im a loyal customer. Then the cook came out of the kitchen and was even ruder to me than the owner himself. Please check out your meal portions if you ever go there. I will never go back given the treatment i recieved. In my opinion these people are out to make money and do not care about their customers. I would rather pay more for a good meal than get screwed out of a good night. Remember check out your dinner portions.

Consistently excellent food and service. The duck curry is fabulous! The salads are also delicious. Always seated and served promptly, and the prices are great. The only downside is that they don't take credit cards..so make sure to bring cash. The ginger candy you get on the way out is also a treat.

This Thai place got a very good deal among all the Thai places in Manhattan.
I have tried a couple of menus. By the way I'm Thai so I really know what taste good or not.
Most of the Fried Noodle like Pad Thai and others are not that good. They cook it very juicy.
Like Rad Nah noodle is not good as well.
I order Pork Nam Tok today. The port is very hard and dry. They should use the B.B.Q. Pork to make it then it will taste better. If anybody has a chance should tell them about it.
Som Tum is good.
So for a good deal price when you feel like want to eat a Thai strong taste is not bad to try but don't order the ones I just mention about.

My husband and I decided to give this place a go based on all the great reviews. We went one evening last week and while we were seated immediately, it took our waiter a good five minutes or so before he actually came over and greeted us. We ordered drinks, appetizers and dinner. I had the Rama Shrimp, which was okay, but nothing special, and it was lukewarm when it arrived. The shrimp were also slightly limp and I didn't finish them. My husband wasn't impressed with his meal either. The one thing that really annoyed me was when the waiter did not bring us change and assumed it was for him. It was only a few dollars over what we would have normally given, but I found that extremely rude. We have eaten at several Thai restaurants in Manhattan and the Bronx, while this definitely was not the worst, it is not worth a second trip. If all you want is cheap prices, then go here, because it is definitely when of the cheapest places around.

My mother was Thai, and a foodie, too. I grew up eating VERY good Thai food here, and in Thailand. Although I gamely try the Thai restaurants in NYC, I usually don't bother returning. Pam Real Thai is a totally different story. Pam dishes out the home foods, without fuss and without distraction. This is authentic-tasting, and very well-priced. My favorites: som tum, and chicken fried rice. Mmm...

Wow, Fresh & great taste. Very affordable we were a group of 10. Had lots of appetizers and entrees (all were yummy) + 8 beers. The Bill was $ 120. Not a fancy place, but its good to find a great food at a reasonable price in NYC. If one wants to go for food and not the decor this is the place

I used to work a block away and eat here at least once a week. I find the balance of the flavors to be excellent. The food seems very authentic. And less oily that you might find elsewhere. I love the green and red currys, the pad prik king, etc.--if you love thai food, this place is great. And you often see the chef, Pam, is in the kitchen. Okay, the decor is not that great, but Pam Thai is a labor of love.

We ate at this Thai place following the reviews but very unhappy with the foods. We thought that this place is using too much of MSG cooking in the foods. Why? They don't concern much of customer's health, just want to make money. please don't fool us.

I went to pams with my girlfriend, and i love it. I've eaten thai many times, and am very familiar with the cuisine. The Thai food is good. Its a nice quiet location to go eat a good meal, relax, be able to talk and have a very good time. The staff are attentive, and have smiles on their faces. A defitely must visit.

Went there for an office lunch. The location and ambience is Ok but the food is what makes up for it. There is a lot of variety even for people who eat vegetarian like me. Try green curry with vegetables. The quantity is also very good, you will come out satisfied. The service is ok, some of the people didn't get what they asked for.

I am not the most experienced person when it comes to Thai food, but my friend who took me there is. He has visited Thailand and is quite expert on the cuisine. It was wonderful. the salads are delicious, both refreshing and very spicy. We had Pam's special fried fish and it was amazing. too large for just two people but nothing was left. Unbelievable.

Stared with chive dumplings fried, which were not really crispy and bland: one of the three was still cold inside. I had the cashew beef, which was very good: it was not overwhelmed with nuts and also had carrots, lemongrass, pineapple, and baby corn. My guest had the chicken with chili paste and green beens. Unlike my dish, his was very dry and spicy--the menu does not specify the "spice level" and the service does not ask your preference. Service was mediocre, as they forgot my Thai tea and only one seemed to speak english. I think this place is hit or miss, but be sure to ask if you don't like spicy.

First of all, I would like to say that I am from Bangkok, Thailand. Born and raised there for 19 years before moving here. I went to eat with my friend. We are really disappointed with the food... we ordered Crispy Duck Salad, Fish with Garlic Sauce, Steamed Mussels, and Crispy pork with chinese broccoli. Everything tasted too strong. We asked them to tone down the taste a little bit after first bite of duck salad. They replied, this is how we cook the food here.

The portion of the food is too big. If you are going to order fish - make sure you have about 5 people to eat it. Just order 1 dish each. Appetizer size is the size of a main dish. Size of a main dish is actually for 2-3 people.

Definitely NOT recommended!!!!

Pam Real Thai may suffer from a painful lack of atmosphere but makes up for it with wonderfully authentic Thai food. This place is so special because they use combinations of taste that generally are not found in the more trendy, less authentic Thai restaurants in Manhattan. Their selection of Thai teas also cannot be beat. And on top of all of that, the prices here are great!

I've only eaten here once, but the experience was pretty bad. Let me just tell you: DO NOT GET THE VEGITARIAN DUCK! It's vile and not edible at all! I tried to return it (after barely managing to eat two bites) but they wouldn't let me. I ended up having to pay for the nasty stuff! I realize that this place has a huge menu and, therefore, will have some not-so-good things, but it's the rudeness of the service that gets to me. I will never EVER eat here again.

On my second trip to pam's, and after a visit by some friends, on my recommendation, it became apparant that this restaurant needs to hire some decent help. They act as if they are doing you a favor, and with such small tables, they should keep the tables clear of unneeded glasses and plates, which they repeatedly did not do. Also, forget the whole fish (too dry) and the BBQ appetizer (portion was way too small).

For those of us who do not want to spend too much in any of the touristy restaurants around the theater district before a show... this place is PERFECT. The food is just above average for Thai food, the service is great and the location is key.
It is BYOB - which we didn't know until we arrived but you can walk in with your own six pack of Bud and enjoy a beer with dinner. The food is ab it oily but all Thai food is oily.
The appetizer we got was just ok, my boyfriend wasn't a big fan of his duck but my Pad Sweet & Sour Chicken was extremely yummy! The place isn't much to look at but it is a great find.

I love this place. Great food, Great price. Most of the menu seemed in the 7-8 dollar range. Which is impressive, because it is so good. However, It is a really basic, dingy atmosphere, far from romantic. The food was pretty salty, seemed like a lot soy sauce (You could probably fix that, by asking for them to cut back the sodium when you order). I like the sodium, but some might not. Besides that, I couldn't believe how good it was for the price.

Like a lot of places on 9th avenue, the food is good and the price is right. A fifteen minute walk from my Times Square hotel got me out of the crowds and away from the tourist prices. I had the Pad Key Mao (spelling from menu) and a Thai Iced Tea. Yummy! Level of spice was just right. Not too much seating, so you might want to get there early or late for dinner. Don't miss it if you're walking North on 9th Ave. It's on the southwest corner, but not the corner store, just further west. Cash only...make sure you've got enough! My wife and I ate for $21 including tip.

I have to agree with all of the others -- I just came across this place yesterday, even though I have lived in the neighborhood for years and I am so so happy. This is the best thai food I have had in in the city. I am very picky and I actually called a bunch of my friends today to tell them how good it was. The bonus is that it is cheap and the staff is very friendly

My friend lives around the corner from this place and went here often and I can now see why! The place itself is ok - nothing fancy. But the food is SO good and inexpensive. It's incredible that you can find a place like this in NYC. This is somewhere to go for cheap good food, not a date or with anyone that you're really trying to impress...

With so much competition from other Thai restaurants in the area, Pam certainly holds its own. May not be the best but definitely up there.

Food is mouthwatering delicious. Definitely not Americanized in any way. Service is friendly although the decor is your typical hole-in-the-wall look. Try the anchovies fried rice... actually pretty good. The anchovies are not the pungent Italian kind which some people do not like (I actually love them!).

If you are looking for a simple place to relax and have good home style Thai food, try going to Pam's.

I've visited there on several occasions, usual for dinner and the place has always been packed with nice customers.

What I am not crazy about is the Tom-Yam-Goong (Thai hot and sour soup). Tom-yam (expecially home style Tom-Yam) is typically spicey and very herbally, aromatic, full of kaffir leaves and smell of sour lemongrass. Pam's version is rather dull. But try the Duck curry and Crispy Pork with Chinese broccoli. Both very affordable and very tasty.

A cheap and no-frills place for Thai food.

But try the Duck curry and Crispy Pork with Chinese broccoli. Both very affordable and very tasty.

A cheap and no-frills place for Thai food.

Pros: Affordable 25 under!, Quality ingredients, Has Take-Out

Cons: Crowded at times

Pam's Real Thai Food is a jewel in the rough. The food is amazing. I've been twice in the last 8 days (and may again tonite). The pork with Chinese style brocolli was great, and the crispy whole snapper...nothing short of perfection. You can bring your own wine/beer and the service is fast and friendly. You can't beat the prices. I was not crazy about the fish cake appetizer...I'm sure that's the way it was supposed to be, just not for me. Pam actually works in the kitchen and will occasionally come out and say hi and see how you enjoy. This is a definite find. Go!

Simply the best Thai food I've ever had in the city. the duck was a little tough, but everything else I've eaten has been fab-- and cheapity cheap! Not to mention the fact that it's BYOB. No ambience, but who cares???
