    My boyfriend and I came here with a restaurant.com coupon and are in lovel!! The food is outstanding. We started with the curry puffs and dumplings and house salad and oh man, it all was just perfect from the peanut sauce to the way the dumplings were boiled and not too greasy. We got three dishes to share (and on purpose to have leftovers! ). We got the pad thai, pineapple fried rice with brown rice and the tofu curry (forgot the name but the first on the menu I believe. I think I can say it was the best fried rice to date. That brown rice was so hearty and incredible and added that special crunch. It all was superb and we will be back, coupon or not!!

    I was craving Thai food so I made the reservation through open table for 3:30. It took me about 20 minutes to even find a parking spot, which was about 3 blocks away. When I finally got to the restaurant, there was a white piece of paper on the door that said "open at 6:00pm" It would've been nice to know that in advance instead of wasting my time.

    A great selection of delicious food for good prices. The only down side is the small size of the restaurant space itself.

    The restauant is really small, which some would call "romantic," but the ambience is not romantic. The decor is very typical of a Thai restaurant: funky, eclectic, and cool. The food menu is very small, much smaller than a typical Thai restaurant, which actually surprised me. We ordered the steak and a half roasted chicken (see, not really Thai!) and it was okay. Not special and too expensive for what it was. Also, the spring rolls were fried - I'm used to them being fresh so that was disappointing. The drinks were AMAZING! The waitress is also the bartender and creates the drinks with a nitrogen tank to cool the glasses. I'd say go here for new and interesting $12 drinks and order a few appetizers, before going out.

    When to Glow Thai for a pre concert dinner before Paul McCartney at Barklay center so I was geared up for a good time no matter what. But I would return again nevertheless. The standard curry was delicious and rich. The apps we had were exquisite. The drinks ample and we caught happy hour.

    The Pad Thai was delicious, more so than the Pad Thai I tried at another Thai restaurant. The appetizers (curry puffs and mixed dumplings) were delish too. Definitely will be coming here again. It's a tiny restaurant (prolly seats no more than 20-25) but the ambiance is great and the waitresses were attentive and helpful with the menu.

  • I went to Glow Thai with 3
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012VIP
    Dined on 9/11/2012
    I went to Glow Thai with 3 other people. The restaurant is small, but was basically empty. It has a nice atmosphere, but it was very hot in the restaurant. I ordered the Green Curry extra spicy and I loved it. The two guys I went with did not particularly enjoy their meals (skirt steak and a half chicken dish). My other friend got a Pad Thai dish, and she was happy. I do not know if the guys opinions are fair/valid, as they have never had Thai food before, and it is possible that the just do not enjoy that specific cuisine, but I thought it only fair to give all opinions. Overall however, I was pleased. The prices were fair, and the food was good
