Thai food here is incredible!! Would recommend getting the Siam fried rice, garlic shrimp stir fry, and chive pancakes. Service was quick and waiters were courteous. Only complaint was that the restaurant was a too dimly lit for our liking.

I love Viv. They have a great menu and the best pad Thai in NYC. Super cute ambiance, and a great daily happy hour. Try a Lychee Martini you won't be disapointed!

Sipping delicious cocktails in this dark and stylish restaurant before LOADS of rich, tasty and sometimes a little messy food arrived. Attentive service provided finger bowls.

Found this place on the off chance, does not look special on the outside but the interior is quirky and the food is incredible. Red curry was superb. Will return!
