Very good Thai food thought everything is a bit spicy even if they tell you it’s not (I don’t really have a tolerance for spicy food so it was a lot for me but amazing nonetheless). GREAT lunch specials as well.

I was a little hesitant when I saw a “B” rating in the window, but food tasted very fresh, they had a great variety of dishes and very reasonable prices for NYC. Cool space.

Good food, great price! Tables were very close together, and it was a very fast paced meal. Great for everyday dining to get in and out, not so much for a date.

Great place to meet friends for drinks and a bit to eat. Good variety but nothing extraordinary. I would go back.

It's often tough to find places to eat near the Theater District that don't cost an arm and a leg. Tasty dishes, prompt service--what more do you need?

Saw a recommendation on Trip Advisor and thought we’d give it a try. Loved the calamari and the chicken with cashews.

I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. The lunch specials -- which run daily (including weekends!) is an incredibly good bargain. There are a large number of choices -- all so good I would be happy to order nearly everything on the menu. The waitstaff are courteous and service is prompt. The food is absolutely delicious. I have returned multiple times and it never disappoints.
