Best Cheap Eats for Lunch in Midtown – When I used to work in Midtown, my friends and I would go to this restaurant for their lunch special. For around $6.95, you got soup, salad, and your choice of protein/vegetables and sauce. Nowhere in Manhattan could you find such a bargin!
I would always order the same thing - Prad Prig Khing, but would mix up the proteins - sometimes I'd have chicken, sometimes I'd have tofu, sometimes I'd have seafood. The dish was always cooked perfectly, the spices tickling my senses, and I'd never leave the restaurant with a to-go box!
Now that I'm living in Florida, I really miss this place and try to go there whenever we are visiting friends who are still in Manhattan.
Great Little Thai Place – Its cheap, its small, and its good. There is not much more to be said about this place, given the expensive area and down to earth service.
Little Bangkok – I agree w/ everything Deannagail says above. You can zip in and out or linger, never a problem getting a table. Just good cheap thai food in an informal atmosphere, great before going to a show at Roseland.
A simple slice of Asian Heaven – Decadant surroundings are unecessary at Little Bangkok. The food is made to order; you pick a base (meat, veggies, etc.), then choose the sauce. Plates arrive hot and fast, with little fanfare and servers so quiet you barely notice their presence. The prices are reasonable (generally under ten dollars), and the restaurant itself is rarely crowded. It's the kind of place where you can sit and linger without the staff giving you that "hurry up, we need to go on a cigarette break" look. The seafood pad thai is refeshing, laced with the flavors of lime, curry and other spices. My favorite is the basil noodles, a delightful dish that's perfect blend of sweet and spicy herbs, freshly made noodles, and sauteed peppers and onions. If you're looking for an extravagent dining experience, look elsewhere, but if you want good food, plain and simple, Little Bangkok's the place to go.
