The food was very good. I often have Pad Thai, but the dish here was much better than most other places I have eaten it in. My friends also enjoyed their choices.

A tiny, delicious Thai restaurant very reasonably priced. You won't be disappointed if you want a satisfying meal.

The city was fairly empty on this Satuday afternoon and I had wanted to stop in to have lunch here for some time. I had gotten a take out menu the week before and it looked appetizing. I was seated immediately and given a menu. The menu is varied [as are most Thai places] including appetizers, soups, salads, fried rice... More

Ate lunch here while attending a conference at John Jay College. Small, narrow restaurant that seats no more than 22 customers at a time. Friend and I both had a lunch special, choice of soup or salad. Soup was just vegetable, not very flavorful. We both had the green curry which was very good. Came with white rice, and was... More

Staying at the Holiday Inn on 57th Street in Manhattan New York has one advantage, the restaurants and bars on 9th nearby. Across the road from my hotel, a short distance to the right is this Thai restaurant. Tiny space, good spicy Thai cuisine with some lovely old time funky music. Smiling and warm service too. Had a good lunch.

This place was excellent. I left wanting more. The food was fresh, flavorful and not over cooked or doused in fry oil. The massaman curry, spring rolls and thai tea were awesome. The thai tea was not too sweet and tasted like the same tea I had in Phuket. I highly recommend a stop by this hole in the wall... More

Charming little place with terrific service and great food. We had pad thai with shrimp, the noodles were al dente and had a nice tangy flavor. We also shared the chicken der krung - crispy deliciousness. With happy hour wine and beer pricing, this was a really delicious and affordable meal. Highly recommend!

While here on business, I went to this place back to back nights because of the amazing Drunk Noodle Pad Thai and $2 beer happy hour.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
