great food at a very reasonable price – I had lunch here today and was very impressed. The $8.00 lunch special ( !!!!!) Included either soup or salad ( I had the salad with a delicious peanut type dressing) and a choice of entree. The service was gracious and prompt, the food well prepared, and even included a cloth napkin.
Where can you get this for this price? Barely covers a sandwich and coffee at Starbucks.
The restaurant was rather empty and I hope they make it through this tough economy, it would be a shame to loose a little gem like this.
Editorial Review – Chelsea restaurant with hot curries, the expected Thai favorites, and the unexpected--like frog's legs and a five-item dessert menu.
One of the better restaurants in Chelsea – I've been here many times over the years, and I've never been disappointed. Service is always gracious, food is excellent, comfortable atmosphere, and prices are decent. I highly recommend the Thai dumplings and any of the duck entrees.
Great authentic food for a reasonable price... – I was turned onto this small neighborhood place by my boyfriend who spent many years living in Thailand. The food is authentic, well prepared with fresh ingredients, and delicious. The prices are moderate and well worth it (lunch specials are so cheap!). I highly recommend the summer rolls, the pad thai (which typically is a boring staple... but not here), and the deep fried crispy fish (both varieties... with chili sauce or sweet/source sauce are great). The waitstaff is soft spoken but attentive and very sweet. A definite GO!
Disappointment – my friend and I were visiting New York first time and cravying for some Thai Food. This restaurant was by far the worse choices we made in New York. We had Tom Yum and deep fried tofu for appertizers. The Tom Yum soup was cold so we asked to be reheated. Witress wasn't listening just gave us a chilli pepper to make it spicy. We also tried the Thai chicken basil eggplants and yellow curry chicken. Eggplants was not bad but oily. However, their curry chicken doesn't taste curry but watery. Overall, not recommended.
Mediocore Thai Food – The food here was pretty mediocore. I think the Cuban/Chinese restraunt down the street would have been more adventurous. My friend and I were craving some Tom Yum soup and what we got was a cold and bland soup; not even close. The curry was also pretty bland but it probably was made that way to suite mid-western pallates. The only reedeming dish was the eggplant.
Lick the plate delicious! – I have tried many Thai restaurants in both NY and NJ and this I must say is the best by far. There menu may not be large, but they will make a special dish if you like a certain entree. I was told that on Friday and Saturday evernings they are packed so I would call ahead now if you have not before. Mouth watering, lick the plate delicious.
Pad Thai! – Best place to go for lunch. The prices are moderate. Good service.
Yum Yum Yummy – This place was wonderful. Clean. Romantic. Great food. The hosts were wonderful. They seated us immediately and then moved us when we requested a table away from the kitchen. The masaman curry was excellent as was the tom khom (sp?) soup. The portions were big, and the vegetable tasted fresh. An excellent restaurant from top to bottom.
Fresh – I liked the down-key, welcoming atmosphere (no loud music to shout over, no pretense or exclusivity). The bathroom didn't give me the creeps and overall the restaurant seemed neat and clean (tableware smelled fresh from the laundry - kind of endearing). I had the vegetable green curry - which was excellent (the tofu wasn't fried and the mushrooms were actually fresh).
