This is a terrific tiny restaurant that consistently turns out good, inexpensive Thai food. We've been going for years and have never had a bad experience. It's clean, the staff is attentive, and the service is very good. Since it's right around the corner from The City Center, It's the perfect place to go if you are attending a performance... More

This place was directly across the street from our hotel and already had good reviews plus #1 daughter said "lets go" and I'm glad we did. The 4 of us all ordered something different and dined "family style". Typical NYC restaurant with limited seating but our meals were served quickly and we could get out and touring quickly. We go...

Needed a quick meal before a matinee. Place looked good and "real" and had busy clientele. Ordered pad thai, choosing chicken, from the lunch special menu -- ten bucks plus tax -- figuring it would be quick. Was served what I think are puffed rice appetizer with a mild dipping sauce. It was fine. The pad thai came in under... More

We've been eating at Topaz for years and were never disappointed. Delicious food, many vegetarian and vegan options and reasonable prices. Highly recommended.

I had hot and sour soap and Green curry. The food is far from authetic thai. Soup had too much sugar.When asked for fresh chili pepper to balance the taste; mexican green chili were offered. Further a charge of $2 appeared in my bill for chili pepper. The food is not fresh, more like microwaved. There is no hint of... More

Can't believe it's located in my old neighborhood and I didn't come here for Thai food. Get the papaya salad! Order this! This is like must-have dish at this place. I liked the starter that's like the chips I had when I was little, shrimp chip! After the salad, I had shrimp Pad Tao Kak, Hubby had Pad Thai and... More

My husband and I arrived in New York after a long journey and after checking into our hotel were in need of something to eat before crashing out. Topaz was just around the corner and we were impressed by the reviews so we thought let's give it a go! We are soooo glad we did. We got a table right... More

We both love Thai food and were very hungry after a full days cycling. This was a neat little place down a not so busy street. Food had heaps of flavour and the entrees were big enough that we ordered 2 and shared. Definitely recommend!

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.
