Really very nice Thai food, slightly different to your normal Thai food. Do not take reservations so be prepared to wait for a table or bar table - there is a reason it is popular. Small restaurant with few tables and easy to miss if...More

We loved everything about this place. The starter of vegetable dumplings (green dough and a spinach and nut filling) was divine. The Thai ice tea is unmissable. Service is prompt, atmosphere fun, there's a great choice of fresh dishes and we're planning our next visit...More

Went on a Friday night and had a 45 minute wait. Very friendly service. Amazing food is made from this tiny spot. Crispy fried tofu, green papaya salad, rice noodles with duck...delicious and will go again.

the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
