Diner Reviews
  • "The decor was beautiful, but that was about it. The food was overpriced and boring. We had the crab dumplings which tasted like cheap and canned crab. We had the cauliflower appetizer which was bland and the crab curry tasted identical to a sauce I purchase at the supermarket. My husband had the ribs, I think 2 came on his plate. Overall, I would not recommend this restaurant."

  • "The restaurant was very quiet at lunch, and the service was great. (Not always the case; sometimes it seems like the fewer customers the less attention they get.) When I mentioned a signature dish (the purple blossom dumplings that I'd read about but weren't on the lunch menu, they happily provided them. The food was very good, and not just your typical Thai. The green papaya salad was also excellent, and not something I usually like. Finally, the restaurant is lovely, and if you go there, be sure to check out the sink in the restroom. Divine!"

  • "The menu was condensed to two pages and everything we chose had "ran out" for the night. When we got our dessert menu, 2 out of the only 3 desserts were also out for the night. It was a poor experience."

  • "I checked their website prior to booking the reservation but when we arrived it was completely different from the actual menu. The waiter informed me that they changed it at the beginning of the year (it was January 11th). The menu that remains was extremely expensive. The food was actually very good, but the portions were small. The crab appetizer was great, but you only get 4 sushi maki size portions on a giant plate."

  • "Not worth the time and money for Thai food lovers. The food bears only a slight resemblance to true Thai cuisine. It appears to have been significantly modified to better align with the taste buds of UES New Yorkers. Some food items meant to be served hot were stone cold my the time they reached our table. Not all items on the menu were available on the evening I visited. The service was friendly but extremely inefficient. The environment and decor are attractive and inviting."

  • "I really liked the ambiance inside. Never been to Thailand but I felt like I was there while eating. Everything from the Duck Bun and Crispy Calamari to the Papaya salad, Grilled Tiger Prawns and Pork Curry were delicious. I like spicy food and they happily increased the spice level at my request. Service was attentive and never intrusive. Look forward to going back."

  • "Crispy calamari was memorable and dumplings also absolutely delicious. Also had pork tenderloin in green curry - hard to choose, but all we had was delicious. Definitely try the pink grapefruit basil martini. Refreshing and not too sweet. Gracious service."

  • "We had walked by this restaurant several times but were always headed elsewhere. We finally decided to try it on Friday and so glad we did! The appetizers are preceded by a little shot of a chicken based soup and orange juice to clean the palate. Appetizers that followed were great: chicken dumplings and ceviche. And the Chilean Sea bass was superb. Service was there every time you needed them but did not feel like they were hovering. This is definitely now on our list of regulars."
