Loved the coconut rice, amazing. Its like eating a coconut rice pudding but its dry. I also had the pork chop, so tender and juicy and well seasoned. Definitely going back for more.

Moving to Astoria in 2006. This is the very first place I went. It feels like you are actually in Manhattan not Queens. Peter and Da are one of the best host/owner. They are like a family. Such lovely people and such lovely well planned menu. I love the Sesame Dumpling and Street Noodles with Duck. The servers knows exactly... More

We have been eating here since the restaurant opened about a decade ago. The food is always good as is the service. The owner is friendly and welcoming. Recommendations include the Tamarind duck entree, the bak choi and just about any of their tasty appetizers.

My wife and I have been eating at WAVEthai since it opened about 10 years ago. It has always delivered a solid dining experience (the tamarind duck entree, and chive pancake and calamari appetizers are especially flavorful). The service is normally prompt and friendly, and the prices more than competitive with other Thai restaurants in Astoria and surrounding areas. HIghly... More

Almost everything about this place suggests a hip Brooklyn address, but, no, it's Astoria. The decor, food presentation, even the cutlery. The music, however, is soft pop, instead of Thai or electronic. My Pad Thai was pretty good, but I would have gladly paid another dollar for a larger lunch portion and an upgrade on lettuce in the side salad.... More

Small and casual place which has a poorly lit storefront making it hard to find, but it is is worth finding! The service is extremely friendly and efficient and the food is delicious and everything we have tried is plated attractively and scrumptious! The decor is modern Thai and the bathrooms are clean and We have returned there again and... More

This restaurant offers tasty Thai food at reasonable prices. The restaurant is small and casual. The servers were friendly and efficient. I ate there with family, including my young nieces (11 and 14), who love Thai food. They had dined there previously and wanted to try different dishes. They were happy with their new choices too. We had dishes ranging... More

Given the good reviews, both here and on Yelp, I was expecting great things. Three stars is probably too high, but I'll be generous. The Summer Rolls were the best part of the meal, though a stray piece of Saran Wrap might suggest they'd been made beforehand..still nice fresh flavors and a peanut sauce that was OK. The "Mermaid" seafood... More
