Food is ok. I
EXCELLENT FOOD – I have been going to this place for many years and it never disappoints. Excellent food at great prices! The chicken pad thai is exceptional, try it once and you'll be addicted.
Worth checking out – A friend of mine brought me there. Even though I'm not a big fan of Thai food, I must admit this place is very good. If only I understood Thai food better...
I could eat here every night - if only I lived there – I had two of my three best meals in NYC at Pongsri. I like already liked Thai food, but this Thai was absolute perfection! The first time I stuck with my traditional favorites likethe Thom Ka Gai soup and Green curry, but on my return visit I branched out and tried something new and I was not disappointed. The manager, Tina ,was gracious and warm and the food delivery was paced just how we wanted it. And if that weren't enough, the prices here are very fair - I ate at a few other restaurants that were not nearly worth the money they wanted for their food. This place is a terrific value....excellent food that doesn't cost you an arm and a leg (or your first born) ! A rare find in NYC!
great thai food – i thought the food would taste like thai american but i was surprised that it was actually great. i felt that i was in thailand again..try the fish with sweet and spicy sauce or their phad thai..highly recommended for those people who love thai dishes.
Very delicious Thai dished – I went there with a group of my friends and found that this 37-year-old restaurant offered very friendly services and delicious foods (well, since they have operated the restaurant for 37 years, I would say they must have something good). The price is very reasonable and they would even go so far to customize their dishes to satisfy customers (e.g. one of my friend is allergic to many foods and they did not hesitate to change their dish for her). If you like curry, this is a place you could find many delicious special curry dishes (try Soft shell crab curry sauce). I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends.
Fish is not fresh – Ths soup was excellent. The fish was terrible, not fresh, left a bad taste on my mouth.
Not going there any time soon.
If you like spice, try this! – These folks are very accommodating within their own style of food, not to mention very nice. Tai hot has never quite satisfied me in other places. (of course I eat habaneros off the plant) It seems the warnings on most Tai menus are just there for show, but here you will find the heat you crave. Try the Jungle Curry soup and tell them to pump it up a bit too! WARNING:not for the faint of heart!
The best thing is that you can eat the way you like and so can your milder taste guest.
BEST THAI FOOD IN NYC!!! – I've been going to this restaurant for years. I love Thai food so you can't blame me for exploring other Thai restaurants in the city. However, I can't seem to find one restaurant that beat the authentic taste of Thai recipes Pongsri serves. I truly recommend the TOM yUm GounG soup. If you love hot and very spicy soup...you GOTTA ORDER the soup!! Plus, my favorite dish is Pad Kee Mao. The dish will bring you to your true senses.
Has my respect – I'm eaten at Pongsri for a number of years. Its one of the first Thai Restaurants I tried. Over the years, they have gotten better in terms of service and food quality. Would I recommend this place. yes! Their service is near the top in my book. Their staff is quick, friendly and professional. If anyone has my respect.. its this place.
