A word from Kittichai
A poised Thai inspired design of dark wood, swags of jewel toned silk, and an orchid filled reflecting pool, set the scene for Kittichai's cutting edge take on authentic Thai cuisine.

Diner Reviews
  • "Went for restaurant week. Great food and great ambiance. Had a great time overall."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "Unfortunately this restaurant did not live up to my expectations. Kittichai bills itself as an upmarket restaurant and it does have a very plush interior. It impresses superficially. However, I did not like the attitude of the staff. I felt that they held a superior attitude towards me but they could not adequately inform me about the menu when I asked some questions. Also, on arrival we were left waiting 10 minutes for our table yet when we were taken through there were many tables for two available. Odd. So, the food does not deliver. The service does not deliver. To be honest, I have had much better Thai food from smaller less fancy establishments on 9th avenue. I will not return or recommend Kittichai."

  • "Had the tasting menu. Excellent and very filling. Service was a touch slow. Great ambience."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "I've been here a couple of times already and I've always loved the food, but this time, it really didn't live up to expectations. I'm not sure if it was a different person making the food, but it definitely wasn't as good as I remembered. Not worth the money."

  • "Great food, delicious cocktails and the service was amazing. We loved the pond in the center of the restaurant and the overall decorations made it a very romantic dinning experience."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Try the skirt steak and green curry. All great, no complaints. Those were 5-stars, but the organic chicken was just okay. Ambiance was a little too quiet for my liking, maybe some music would spice the place up a bit. Although really romantic if you just want some one on on time with your lover"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Bad, slow service, warm prosecco, twice. Food was very mediocre - wanna be thai. Not coming back"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "After an absence of a number of years, I am so glad to find that the quality and service has held up and the ambience is as lush and sexy as I remembered. Will be back!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "This restaurant has an amazing atmosphere and quality service. Nice calm ambiance with unique seating arrangements. The food was absolutely amazing! From appetizer, to dessert and drinks, everything tasted great. I would go back at least once a week to get the chili smoked hanger steak. Outstanding flavors, great portion and just yummy! I recommend this restaurant to anyone that likes Thai food or is willing to try something new. Definitely worth it!"

  • "always reliably interesting and unusual food treats for a night out. Not as trendy as in the past, but still four-star in our regard. Remember to check for spiciness of choices (if you're sensitive). Favorite of ours is the stick rice dssert."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Good food, good scenery - hostess was kind of cold (like we were annoying her) and the waitress was kind of pushy when we needed a minute or two to order."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "First we had a lady server that was speaking very fast and looked angry when I told her to slow down, then she disapeared and we waited a long time before being able to order the food and we got an indian man who was nice but added 20% service to the bill without asking which I always hate because this is what they do to stupid tourists... The food was OK but very spicy"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Went for restaurant week on a Monday - wasn't too packed but enough people there so it didn't feel empty. Got a few specialty cocktails to start which were all delicious. The pre-fix menu was mostly good, except the fish was a really small portion. The apps were all great."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "This was our second time eating at Kittichai and it was every bit as good as the first time we visited. As an added bonus, we were allowed up to the beautiful rooftop bar afterwards, which was the perfect way to end the evening!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "I found Kittichai on one of the internet's many "10 such ans such best lists." I love brunch, and a Thai flavored one was up my alley. Reservations were easy too book. The food was delicious. I had the pancakes, and my boyfriend had the eggs Benedict. We also tried the prawn cakes (skimpy size but tasty) and their bacon. Everything was full of flavor, and man, my pancakes were light and fluffy I swear I was eating a delicious cloud. If you can, sit outside. Then inside is horrendously loud."

  • "I went on a Saturday for brunch, and it was surprisingly not busy. While this worried me, I figured I'd stay and give the place a shot. The staff was very friendly, and the hostess/ waitress we had always kept our bottomless drinks refilled. For $25, you can get bottomless lychee belinis, blood orange mimosas, or bloody marys and a brunch entree (I got an egg white omelet with curried potatoes. Everything seemed fresh and nicely cooked). We sat outside, and it was lovely under their gorgeous outdoor seating area. I was impressed all around and surprised it wasn't busier."

  • "Been there for 2 times, and yes, food is still the same, yummy. Service is OK. will absolutely be back there."

  • "it looks like its shutting down !!! learnt that when we were at the restaurant ....sad loss"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "From the moment we walked in we were impressed! Beautiful decor, outdoor area, and waiting lounge. They were very nice about waiting for the rest of our party to arrive, and seated us promptly when they did. We did the $25 brunch special and very much feel like we received our moneys worth! The staff were all incredibly nice, knowledgeable, and on top of their game."

  • "Went here on a low-key date night with a Groupon. We started with the Snapper Sashimi appetizer (cilantro-tamarind vinaigrette, candied cashews, trout roe), which was delicious. He had the scallops. Presentation was wonderful but they were not to my liking. (soft puffs of creaminess sitting on wooden spoons) Our mains were the duck 2-ways and Mahi mahi. The boyfriend was not a big fan of the overpowering ginger/curry flavor of the Mahi mahi. I enjoyed my duck. We also had the Riesling which was refreshing. Dessert was delicious, I had the Thai "Affogato". Hit the spot since I was craving some coffee. Ambiance was great, we sat by the little indoor "pond" with floating candles. Waitress was nice and attentive."

  • "Food is extraordinary. Best Thai food I've tried in NY and 2nd best in my life. Creative and unique cuisine. Modern and elegant ambiance. Service was not as good as food. My suggestions: mushroom dumplings, Seabass with soy and brown sugar sauce, snapper with curry (hot)."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "I have been here many times! I have never experienced such abominable, inattentive and downright neigent service! Forgot to put in order, repeatedly having to remind what we asked, billed for food never ordered or never delivered! No apologies after patiently explaining the situation! Not going there again, nor recommending it to anyone!"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "I've been taking friends to Kittichai for about a year and a half. We always have a great time- love the food, the atmosphere and the bottomless brunch! This was the first and only time the service has been poor. All of the other times the service has been great so this one bad experience won't stop me from going- I just hope that was a one time thing! It happens. Otherwise, our experiences at Kittichai weekend brunch are fabulous and continues to be a great tradition among my local and out-of-state friends."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "We were enjoying the outdoor seating until we heard rats squeaking behind the trellis on the deck. It's NYC and rats love here but it was really unnerving. Service was slow as they were slammed with parties. Staff are models not waiters!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We were a party of five celebrating our friend's bachelorette & all ordered the tasting menu w/wine pairing. Our waitress came over maybe once to check if we were ok. We were seated closest to kitchen. If there's one thing I HATE it's being seated next to the bathroom or kitchen esp when the reservation was made a week in advance. Not to mention there were so many other empty tables close to the lili pond. It was a bit insulting. I regret paying $500+ in a resto where we are put in the least desireable area of the restaurant for a table of 4 w/an extra chair (yup! classless). I would love to take my friends & fam who come to visit NYC here but I wouldn't give business to kittichai after a slap in the face experience."

  • "If you have a seafood allergy this is not the restaurant for you"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "It was really great to come here for brunch. I really loved the decor. The food was good but i should've stuck to thai. I hadeggs benedict which had thai flavors but didnt mesh well with the western food. Nonetheless it was still good. Would go back again. Really great bloody mary!!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "This was my fourth time at this place in less then 2 years. The ambience is still great. But I would mention that the food quality has definitely changed. I wouldn't particularly say that it has deteriorated but has definitely changed. This time it was all vegetarian fare. I would recommend their Carrot Croquette, they were amazing. We ordered pretty much all the veg dishes (they only had 5 options). My friends loved it, for me it was different. Would I go again? Maybe!! Not sure, unless the food quality improves tremendously. Thanks."

  • "This was one of my favourite fix price lunch restaurants last year. Now they do not offer anymore such opportunity! They allow 35 dollars fix price dinner only until 7:30 pm. !! We were there at 8:00 pm, we spent a lot of money for almost nothing. I hope they will get back to last year setting!"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Asian Restaurant Month (ARM) was advertised on OpenTable so we decided to go to Kittichai for the advertised $35 prix-fixed three course dinner. We walk into the beautiful restaurant and asked to be seated outside because it was a lovely night. Waitress comes by and we ask about the special for ARM. She says that menu is only valid until 7:30pm. Confused, we asked her to send the manager over. In the meantime, we looked for terms but on OpenTable and Kittichai website but found nothing. The manager came over and we explained to him that we were there for the $35 ARM menu. He was extremely rude and said he didn't even know what ARM was that he couldn't do it. When it came down to it, the food was subpar and I would not return."

  • "The decor and location are great, but the food is mediocre at best. I was especially disaapointed by the Black Cod "Noodles" - turned a beautiful and delicious fish into a bland, tasteless gooey noddle. Why?!"

  • "Fantastic restaurant! Food was outstanding, ambiance was perfect for a couple or group and your glass was never empty. I'm not sure where else in manhattan you can have a delicious entree and bottomless drinks for 90 minutes for $25?!? I recommend the kittichai Omlete or the Thai Eggs Benedict. Can't say enough about this place, went way beyond my expectations!"
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We had been to Kittichai last year and had a wonderful dinner. Although service was good and attentive, this time, the food was very disappointing. The sea bass was hard and rubbery and flavors among dishes were repetitive. We are not coming back"
