Nice little place with unpretentious vibe and food. Service is really great and suggestions are made based on what you tell your waiter/waitress. Music is prominent but if you love the urban/hip hop/gangstarap sound, like I do, it’s actually a plus. Overall: great spot for a good meal in the LES and there’s a really good cocktail bar right across the street.

The food here is fantastic! However, the rap music was deafening. I’d recommend Pig and Khao to foodies that can handle the noise level.

Good food, (Filipino) fair NYC prices, efficient and accommodating service (but not especially friendly). More a Gen X hipster scene; don't expect smiling languid Filipino hospitality. We were a party of six and we were well-treated. Sisig, prawns, ribs, crispy pata all good. Halo-halo excellent. Why no San Miguel?

Pig & Khao was amazing! Booked for a busy Saturday night and was blown away that we were seated right on time. Service was great, food came out quickly and the flavor combos were amazing!!! Ambience and music were very cool as well.

Everything was great, we had the chef's choice per usual and everything was amazing. Drinks were great, service amazing but the temperature was hot. Next time I’ll request to set away from the kitchen. Other then that it was a great night out.

Fun spot in LES with tasty food and a fun vibe. Looking forward to coming back for another visit to taste more dishes from the family-style menu. I do wonder why I was not able to get 100 OpenTable points for this reservation, however.

Really delicious - always delicious. It's my second time there and each meal felt like a feast. We weren't rushed and the prices are fair. Everything is delicious and decadent so be sure not to indulge before going there. The only thing is that we were in the back room, it was around 50F that night and the AC was on - we all had to wear our winter coats. Same thing happened last year.

Food was spectacular as was the service. My primary complaint had to do with the venue’s choice of loud rap music throughout the hour we were there. Rap I don’t mind so much, but if they can pick rap music that doesn’t include the “f” word every other verse, I’d appreciate it. Further, our server wore a gray sweatshirt on which was imprinted “F*** Off Pay Now” which in addition to being offensive, no paying customer should have to see. Last was the lack of a finished wall behind the bench on which I was seated; my purse slipped off the bench behind me, and the wall was not only all broken up back there, it was dirty.

I have been to P&K about six (6) times. I always enjoy the food, the service and the atmosphere. The food is fresh, spicy and delicious. This is the first time I drank something other than wine or beer, and I am glad to say, the drinks were great. Loved their tequila choices. Our waitress was wonderful. She was knowledgeable and patient. The duck was great, as was the octopus app !!! The only issue I had with the meal was our dessert: we ordered the very popular Halo-Halo and it just did not work for us. But otherwise, I will be back for more sizzling sisig, papaya salad and great music.

Every. Single. Dish. Was Ah-May-zing. Do yourself a favor and get the whole fish. Even if you’re dining alone. Get it. You won’t be disappointed. But everything was delicious. And the service was great and we drank too much wine and grooved to the 90s hip hop. ❤️

Loved coming here! Great space, amazing food, super friendly service! I felt the entrees were slightly too small but I was with 3 other people, think would order the same amount of food (4 entrees) for 2 people and would be stuffed by the end. As it was, felt satisfied but also could've eaten more (and wanted to because again, the food was incredible)!!

Had really high expectations going in so was somewhat disappointed with the meal. It was good but not great. We were also very put off by all the fruit flies swarming around - gross!

Been here a few times. The food is always solid. Be prepared, the food, at least what we ordered, is on the spicy side but oh so good. The one ding I experienced this time was a wait staff that didn't seem into us at all. we were a party of 3 sitting at a table for 2, we ordered a lot of food and 3 bottles of wine. it was an early dinner so the table next to us was empty and was so for our whole stay. the staff seemed to have a problem with us using the other table to hold our plates which I thought was odd. A big peev that they did was send us the bill without asking if we wanted dessert. We did and ordered 2!!
that said, Id still go back, I love chef Leah and her food!!!

Delicious as always! We did the tasting menu. Our server was so awesome. The meal wasn’t over until we were completely stuffed. Everything was so tasty and fresh. I was sad they no longer have the pork jowl Brussels sprouts but if we made enough noise about it, maybe they’ll bring it back. Water was always replenished and clean plates were offered. The food was and always will be delicious and amazing. Love returning here!

Came for brunch with 7 friends, made reservations 2 weeks in advance and had to add an 8th person 7 days in advance and they did their best to accommodate that. The party was split, not really sure why. Everything we ordered was delicious but the servers were slow to come around, made mistakes in who got what, someone who can’t eat pork for religious reasons was given a pork dish, and were very rude. If I pay for bottomless mimosas, I expect when we request a pitcher, for us to receive it. Especially if it is still within our time limit. If I ask a server what a certain dish is, I expect them to know. All in all an OK experience, best to be in the back room I suppose. Also, how can you run out of mimosas 1 hour before close? Poor form.

This place is pretty highly rated across the board, and we love Thai food, so we were pretty surprised that the chef's tasting menu was so ... terrible. The tasting menu is $55 per person and you get a lot of food for that price, but it was an overload of fried food that generally tasted pretty bad... like something you'd get from a dive bar. The service was good though and the ambience wasn't bad -- generally well suited for mid-20 year olds looking for some quick grub before hitting the club. I would add that the food around us looked pretty good. I won't be back but if you are planning to go - avoid the tasting menu!
