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 had absolutely no heat (spice kick). Clearly Pam is no longer in the kitchen. This was our Thai sure bet for years...sadly no more.
great, fresh experience – 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.
Great option for Hell's Kitchen – 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.
salty food bad waitress!!! – 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...!!!
Very bad food and horrid service – 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....
NEVER AGAIN – 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 Great Food and Service – 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.
Good Price, Taste OK but not really delicious on some menu – 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.
Absolutely amazing and cheap (cash only) – I was extremely impressed by this place, I eat Thai food fairly often and this is one of the best! It is also incredibly affordable and the service was great!
Not impressed – 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.
