Just wanted a quick bite and we decided to try this restaurant. I live in the neighborhood and always pass by it so decided to finally give it a whirl. I had the Mango Shrimp special and it was really tasty and delicious. It was served on a leaf of lettuce resembling a bowl--really cool. The white rice portion was minimal but that didn't dampen my experience. The comfy seat/cushion spans the length of the brick wall with back cushions positioned on the wall as a back rest. I would eat here again.

I decided recently to stop by to grab a quick bite for a hair appointment next door. It was a Monday evening and there were only two other diners ahead of me. After being snubbed by the wait staff for deciding to dine in alone, I ordered a Pad Thai with tofu. Soon, other diners started trickling in, but the restaurant was by no means crowded. As the minutes ticked by, I was very disappointed to see the diners who came in after me being served their meals as I continued to wait for a simple noodle dish. I tried to ask the wait staff, but they were preoccupied with the other diners and the take out orders. When I finally got the waiter's attention, I told him I had to cancel my order, which I doubt was ever placed with the kitchen. I can't believe that the waiter never noticed that I had not even been served by dinner.

I ended up going to my appointment starving. I will never again order from this restaurant. Next time, I will go to Em.

Ghang simply is great! I have been there at least 15 times and am still pleasantly surprised every time I go. I usually order the specials, so I always get to try something new. The service is so friendly, it's embarrassing. I do recommend to confirm the desired degree of spicyness for your dish, or you might be in for a fiery surprise. No problem for me, i like it hot. And best of all, they let you bring your own wine and/or beer, hence dinners turn out quite affordable. What's not to like?

This restaurant used to be Tuk Tuk -- at the time my favorite Thai place. I was concerned when I went back after taking a break and found it was now Ghang Thai. The place seems about the same, I'm not sure how much has changed beyond the name. Great food, great prices. One drawback I noticed when going there a few weeks ago: it's BYOB only. This is fine if you're prepared, but we weren't and we wanted some drinks with our dinner and it was a Sunday night and all liquor/wine stores nearby were closed. Great for lunch.

Cons: No booze, BYOB only -- which is fine if you're prepared.

This place gets pretty good reviews; but it is just ok. I think it has been over-rated. The food was good, reasonably prepared and inexpensive. We shared a shrimp jungle curry and a pick your chick with peanut sauce. The peanut sauce was particularly disappointing; it was mostly cornstarch, and the chain Lemongrass actually has a better sauce. The service was really bad. The waiters were inattentive and slow even though the place wasn't crowded. They didn't have any salad and the waiter didn't tell us this very smoothly. We asked for a napkin (missing from the table) two times and I finally got up and took it off another table because clearly they had forgotten. Then I practically had to beg for the check. I wouldn't go back here.

Tuk Tuk is my second favorite neighborhood Thai place (the first being Joya). This place, however, has a lot less pretension than Joya and the Thai food is still above-average. You rarely have to wait for a seat and the currys (masaman, green, red) are full of flavor and come super spicy if you ask for it. The Pad Thai is excellent here, as well.

My husband insisted on going there while we were circling the neighborhood in search of the "nice" place with good food. The food is good, service is good too and the music adds to the relaxing evening!
Interesting dessert, but small list to choose from

Tuk Tuk is one of those comfortable neighborhood joints where you know you will always have a good meal at a fair price. I've never been disappointed. While the menu isn't especially groundbreaking, everything I've tried so far has been well-executed and tasty. Service has always been friendly and efficient.
The space is a bit too small for live music, so on
jazz nights, it can be loud and cramped. Also, the place is popular with families, so if you're bothered by children running loose like wild animals, come later at night to avoid them.

I'm Thai and live in Queens, NY. Every Thai people here knows you can find good Thai restaurants everywhere in Queens. Tuk Tuk is one of the rare choices for me to go in Brooklyn. The food is great and authentic. Love the Jazz bands on Fri and Sat.

Pros: Authentic, Jazz music/ band, close to subway

Cons: , could be noisy

Thai restaurants are shooting up like weeds in Cobble Hill. However, don't be fooled by the wide selection. If you're determined to test out the best cuisine, Tuk Tuk is it. There are other restaurants in the neighborhood that are trendier, more well known (a.k.a. chain restaurants), but Tuk Tuk blows them all out of the water with regards to culinary expertise. I live in the neighborhood, LOVE Thai food, have tried them all and believe me, I ain't lyin'! Watch out for the spicy curries, though. You might think you can handle spicy food, but you most likely cannot handle what Tuk Tuk's kitchen considers to be spicy. Word.

this place... we stumbled upon it on labor day weekend. whoever the jazz duo was, they were on POINT. good music, great food, speedy service & affordable prices. even the wine by the glass was good. its a little out of the way if you don't live in the neighborhood, but definitely worth the trip from wherever you are.

The New York Times has reviewed this place three times already, you know it's going to be good. This is the only Thai place I go too in NYC, it's wonderful, and live relaxed Jazz on certain nights.
Authentic food and they have REAL service, not just the rush you get sometimes when they try to push you out the door. Live relaxed Jazz just tops it off ;]

Enjoy.
