It was my 4th time eating
It was my 4th time eating eating dinner at Thai Select. Unfortunately, the food is becoming progressively worse ... But it's a convenient pre-theater restaurant, clean, not expensive and with a great choice of drinks.

My friend and I stopped for
My friend and I stopped for a quick dinner and I was happy with the food and the service. Very spicy (which I liked!) but my friend found a little too hot.

My third time at this restaurant, and the happy hour specials are great. The food is amazing. Big portions and not expensive at all! Definitely worth a trip. It is on an unbeaten path, but the drinks are great and strong, and service is outstanding!

Recommended for lunch
Six of us had lunch. We could hear one another without having to strain -- important if you want to talk to your friends -- and the portions were extremely generous. Not the most innovative Thai, but a pleasant little spot, with nice proximity to Javits if you have business there and prefer real food to convention center choices.

Nice Thai Restaurant - Convenient L
I was looking for a Thai restaurant near Penn Plaza, and pulled this one out of a hat using open table. I was coming in from Jersey and wanted something easy to get to from the Lincoln Tunnel. Tough out the traffic, and head to the parking lot a block south on the west side of 9th avenue. You'll pay about $20 to park there during lunch.
The place looks "ultra casual" from the street, with a kind of modern decor inside. The place was deserted when I arrived early at noon, but by the time my companions showed up at 12:30 the place was packed.
Food was delicious (try satay appetizer)...Duck specials were delicious...service is VERY slow....prices reasonable ($150 for 7 with no alcohol). Try it out!
PS $3/Singha Beer at Happy Hour

Great food and price
Found Thai Select on Yelp and I have to agree with most of the reviewers. The food is great and the service was wonderful. Not too loud at all and the price is better than most. Dinner for 2 with soups and main courses cost $32 + tip. Tough to beat in NYC and even outside the city. Can't wait to go back.

Lovely Hidden Gem!
A small group of us who hadn't seen each other for a long time needed a restaurant where we could catch up on each other's lives. I booked a table at Thai Select based on its location and menu, which is extensive. The space is beautiful--much larger than I expected--and the food and service were top rate. Our server was attentive but did not rush us, and the half price cocktails were also excellent. I will definitely be back!

Great food, so-so service
Arrived at the end of Happy Hour and the service seemed to focus on getting drinks out. It was more of a noisy bar scene than restaurant. We ordered Pad Thai with Jumbo Shrimp, Pad Thai with Roast Duck as the entrees, and Spring Rolls and Tom Kar soup as appetizers. When the appetizers arrived 30+ minutes later, I found the Tom Kar soup to be delicious with big chunks of vegetables and chicken. My colleague thought the spring rolls were good but not notable. The entrees were fabulous with the Roast Duck winning as must have next time. Even with the service issue, we plan to eat here again.

Great food and service - yet again!
Thai Select can do no wrong. Everything was perfect from start to finish.

This was an excellent Thai
This was an excellent Thai restaurant. First time we had been there and the food was excellent as was the service. Noise level was a little excessive at times, but overall I would go here again the next time I'm in NY.
