Very noisy club music playing
Poor service no interaction didn’t even offer us drinks just took the menus away without talking to us
ok it "looks" nice, but
nobody looks at you when talking to you
service is low grade
Appetizers : went for dumplings... dog food
Asked for a MILD (non spicy) meal... got a VERY SPICY meal: couldn't eat it
Do you think they bothered seeing a full plate when taking it away?
Do you think they where sorry?
Do you think they would not charge you for something you didn't ask for ?
People who score this place with 3 and above should spend a holiday in Thailand or a real thai restaurant ... to understand Obao is as good as streetfood in my opinion.
Sorry if I'm rough but I haven't had such a bad experience for a long time :-(
The food was good overall but the light fixtures in the front were covered in dust and kind of disgusted us...we would come back if it we're cleaner.
Affordable and gorgeous
Went here for Valentine's Day, waited 15 minutes despite having a reservation. Sat down, immediately noticed there was something sticky from the table, hair on my napkin, and both of us had dirty dishes. Took 20 minutes for a waiter to come over (they were understandably busy), took our drink and appetizer orders, weren't served or checked on for another 20 minutes. Finally, I say something to a worker standing in the corner, still waited another 10 minutes just to order our dinner, that took another 20 minutes, we had a 7pm reservation and wasn't served our meal until almost 8:30pm. Servers didn't even check on how our meal was which usually isn't important to me, but after making us wait so long, they were entirely clueless of the situation. That's unacceptable for a New York City restaurant. Food was good, but the service (or non-service) was horrific and I'll never go back. There are great vietnamese/thai restaurants in the city, this isn't one of them.
Great dinner, great drinks, nice ambiance, and close to the theater!
Felt rushed. Only concerned about ordering entree. We were surprising a family member and they wouldn't allow most of us to sit until everyone was there. Waiting area small. Overall I would not go back or recommend anyone to go there. Food was ok extremely small portions for the price. We left after apps since they were very friendly. Walked a block down and found a more welcoming place
Fast service, interesting decor and excellent food
the food was all delicious, good portions, good prices. We went for a 3:00 late lunch on Superbowl Sunday. Apparently they had a shift changeover at 4:00 pm in the middle of our lunch. So, while we were still eating, (messy hands etc.), the server insist we had to pay the bill and sign credit card receipts. That was a bit annoying.
The food was delicious. Portions were just right and the service was excellent. We really liked the steamed dumplings as an appetizer and the eggplant side dish was fantastic. The pho what was needed on a cold night in New York.
Nice, authentic Japanese food. Very nice & cosy atmosphere. Nice & friendly service..
The food was very tasty. The servers were fast and attentive. Certainly it is a place to come back.
Family get together of 6 - service was okay - but the food is excellent.
Very poor service including forgotten items and spilled drinks. Loud generator next to the table.
Expected more from the food but will try their other branch and see if it’s better.
