Found this place by accident, which shows some accidents can be good. Staff are so attentive, we had fresh water as soon as we sat down. We only wanted a light snack so picked from the set lunch menu. There were plenty of options on the set lunch menu with several vegetarian options. As it was the lunch menu we... More

2 adults and 2 teenagers, and we had a really great meal. Priced well in the area, with great portions, and you can turn up or down the spice, just ask. Very happy we stopped in here on a whim, was one of the best meals on our 4 day stay in NYC.

The Pad Thai is a small neighbourhood restaurant. It does take out, which is delicious. It's reasonably priced. Worth a midweek visit.

Fantastic authentic Thai food in NYC, with friendly welcoming staff. I'm always cautious of eating Thai outside of Thialand as it's usually a mediocre experience. However the Pad Thai Noodle Lounge served fantastic authentic Thai dishes, the pad Thai was great as were the other dishes. Definitely somewhere I'd eat again.

Four of us had dinner - one of our entrees was pretty good. One was sent back (ribs) and the replacement was average (Singapore Rice Noodles). Few customers on a Saturday night - always a bad sign - yet the service was far below par. I'd skip this place and seek Thai food elsewhere.

We were hungry and walked past this little gem. We're glad we did! As the name already says they serve Pad Thai. If you like this dish (and other Thai dishes) this is the place for you! The food tasted pretty authentic and the waitresses were quick and friendly. We really liked the interior as well. It's a cute little... More

Very nice decor, all-thai menu at a very reasonable price in Chelsea. Service is fast and efficient. Meals are on average very spicy, so make sure to point that out in advance.

The welcoming atmosphere of this restaurant drew us in for a weeknight dinner. Love the decor. Service was friendly and prompt, and the pricing is very reasonable (especially for Manhattan). The Jungle Curry was fantastic. Our server asked about the spice level, and we said spicy was fine. Pad Thai's standard is hot and I loved it but if you... More

During my stay of a week, I have been here twice. The Thai dishes are moderate spicy but also tasteful. Although I have not eaten them also Indonesian and Japanese food was available. The people who accompanied me the first time where also quite satisfied.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
