“Like other people have mentioned, it gets packed for dinner, and the servers tend to get a little forgetful/rude towards the end (slow on getting the check, etc.) but all worth it for the best massaman curry in manhattan.”
Tasty Thai cuisine!. First time here and my boyfriend and I both enjoyed our meals. Portions could be a little larger but the price was definitely right! Service was pleasant although our waiter forgot to bring our drinks out and needed to be reminded. We will definitely come back here for dinner!
Can you say AWESOME?!. Great prices & great food! Service was slow toward the end but thats because they were jam packed & now i know why : ) I don't even like asian food in general but this place was terrific - the sauces & seasonings were off the hoooook! I loved their fried calamari full of flavor ,very citrusy with a spicy kick to them srved with a great spicey honey sauce. We also had the kafeer puff-with ground chicken also awesome... then i had the pork chop - was so good - very tender, big chop and grilled to perfection ... also the volcano chicken was rather tasty. I will be back & highly recommend it... u can't beat this place - great location, food & prices - a real triple threat. Only thing is according to my friend its not "traditional thai" but who cares - it tastes damn good!
Good value for the village. You feel like a valued guest when you arrive here. The food is great and the service is not bad aswell. A little bit crowded in the dinning room, but what do you expect for a Saturday night eating out in the city. Looks like a good place for groups.
GREAT VALUE FOR GOOD FOOD IN A FANTASTIC LOCATION. I cook thai food often, and this place does it justice. It's tasty and all the entrees are ONLY $8. It's not amazing food, but pretty good. I particularly liked the Spicy Basil Noodle (Drunken Man Noodle) dish. It's close to the heart of the west village, near the christopher st stop. Really nice waitstaff. Great Thai Iced Coffee. Check it out!
Editorial Review. Sleek decor at restaurant serving Thai entrees, plus curry and noodle dishes, lunch specials.
Service with a smile. I had two parties at ILSE, the best thing was that the owner took really good care of us, we took all the menu's give them back and said bring out the food as you wish, all was wonderful, is as if you were home and mother is taking care of you.
great food--a real find!. This is a gem of a thai restaurant. The food is stellar, and the prices are incredible. The environment is also very serene and calm, and the food is presented beautifully. It's a far cry from most thai restaurants. I dined here in a group of five, and all of us loved our dishes. I especially recommend the drunken man noodles and the pork chops. They're a little different than the typical thai food, and they were very good.
great food, great value. The food is excellent to any palate, and friends who lived in Thailand for years swore it was authentic. The kitchen will cook to order if you prefer more or less spice. All the ingredients are fresh and very well prepared, and the menu has great options for vegetarians. Prices are low for the quality and quantity of food, especially in the area. The wait staff is patient and friendly and even accommodated our group of 10 with grace when I called ahead. Great service, great food, great value. Can't go wrong with Isle - some of the best Thai food in Manhattan! Definitely worth trying.
