A word from Aura Thai - NY
Ninth Avenue locals have known Aura for its refreshing cuisine and homely atmosphere. But what they don't know is… the fusion cafe is actually named after the matriarch of the Watanasuparp family, Nora; hence, NAURA. This minor misnomer is intentional and welcomed, though, because the eatery evokes Thai aura and flavor into every dish. While the Pad Thai is as traditional as Siam, the Jap Chae, Lemongrass Chicken and Pad Cashew Nut are as international as Korea, Vietnam and China. Like a treasure chest of Asian favorites, the menu offers fusion food with Thai flare so you don't have to travel to the Far East for gourmet food.

Experience the quality and taste, warmth and aura of Thai fusion in New York City. You'll witness some patrons hoping to be seated, and others, spilling into the sidewalks of Ninth Avenue, all waiting for their bit of Naura's – or Aura's – cooking.

Aura Thai - NY reviews from OpenTable diners
  • A group of us were looking
    Dined on 3/22/2014
    A group of us were looking for someplace close to Penn Station to celebrate a friend's birthday. We almost walked by the restaurant as the sign for the noodle restaurant next door is bigger. Varied menu, requested Thai spicy and it was awesome. Excellent happy hour deals until 8PM. Excited to find this gem in the Penn Station area.

  • horrible service w/ 19% gratuity
    Dined on 3/20/2014
    The service definitely lacked quality, we were waiting multiple times for him to just come around to our table, and it's not like the restaurant was busy (there was only one other group of 5 or 6 there). On top of that, they charged a group of us 5 as a group of 6, with a gratuity of 19%. Just beware of that.
    Special Features:
    fit for foodies, great for brunch, kid-friendly
