Bit of a squeeze but truly worth it. Great lighting, atmosphere and a nice buzz about the place. Warm, friendly service and totally delicious food. Wish we had somewhere equally 'cute' in London. Felt like a backstreet Bangkok outfit. Great value too. Search it out and wait in line!

Quite simply the best meal I have had eaten abroad! My wife loves Thai food and this was a delight! Well worth a visit - modestly priced, great atmosphere and very attentive staff! Would love for this restaurant to be in the UK!

OK, we didn't really find it. Tripadvisor found it for us. But it was exactly as promised - authentic, tasty, and cheap as chips. This is really good food at a steal of a price. We had the beef pad see ew and the chicken pad kee mao, as well as a special - green curry with shrimps. All were... More

Wanted to visit on the strength of TA & Ziggy's recommendation. First attempt there was a 60 min wait & as we were really hungry we went elsewhere. Made second attempt the following evening. As we had a show booked we got there early. Already a substantial query at 5pm but decided to wait. Luckily a few minutes later 2... More

Visited here as part of a Hells Kitchen food tour with "Eating with Ziggy" Its a tiny place with a really small store front, blink and you will miss as it! We had a small wait for a table which we expected. Inside, it's like you've stepped in to a street kitchen in Bangkok. I'm not very brave when it... More

The real thai experience in NY, small and cosy place, service is excellent with a 100% smiley staff, like in Thailand, and dishes are excellent: dumplings, spring rolls, red curry, noodle... order also a Singha Beer, close your eyes ans you will be travelling to Bangkok for a dinner... Negative side, we waited 1 hour to be seated...

Don't expect to be seating as in fine dining, but expect to get an authentic and real Thai experience.

We had a very good meal from Pure Thai! I ordered the Pad kee Moaw and spicy eggplant curry, both with chicken. The portions aren't huge but they were very tasty for the price. Best of all was how quick it was delivered to CitizenM hotel...within 20 mins! If you love Thai this was spicy and yummy.

I love Thai food and been a number of time to Thailand The food here is the real deal and worth the wait if you have to queue" and people do even at 10.30pm... It's tiny but u do feel you are in a little bit of Thailand here... As you would expect friendly service with a smile

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.
