Pig and Khao Ratings and Reviews
Dustin took foods that were familiar and made them wholly new! P&K is a gem. I had wanted to come in for quite a while and I was not disappointed. While the menu is Southeast Asian based or inspired, it was not just another Thai/Pan-Asian. For example, the green papaya salad was familiar but had some undefinable difference that set it apart from those I'd eaten in the past. Every dish was wonderful and the flavor combinations worked no matter what we mixed and matched. I have a new favorite in NYC and it is Pig & Khao!
I cannot say enough about this place. The food was outstanding. Bold flavors and ample protions. The service was exceptional and not what you might expect for a neighborhood place. And the atmosphere was relaxed and enjoyable. This is a place that you must stop by nad enoy. You will not be let down, especially if you love food.
Server forgot to put in order so took over 40 minutes to get food. He comp'd us a free dish but was too full by the time the last dishes came out that we couldn't eat anymore. Still love the food there but the service was mediocre as the server didn't apologize but rather said there were computer problems.
My second visit to Pig and Khao reinforced my love for this place ten-fold. The first time, we sat at the bar and loved watching the plates come together and Chef Leah Cohen add the final touches.
This time around, our group of five ordered two large plates (ribs and duck), three small (ramen, curry, and pork belly adobo), two sides of rice and the market vegetables, and we ended with two orders of turon for dessert. The portion sizes were perfect for our group. The drinks were delicious (Tamarind Hall, tequila plus tamarind?! An amazing combination!!) and the food was phenomenal. The filipino dishes were rich, the thai dishes, flavorful...
Such a great experience! I was running late for my reservation and had called them to let them notify. They were super nice about it and had no problem with it. In addition, our server, Richard, was great! Bottomless mimosas are a most as the mimosas were so great and he was always there to make sure we always got our share of refills. He was super funny and attentive to my friend and I. Definitely made us feel welcomed and made us want to come back.
As service was amazing, the good was great also. The open kitchen was also interesting and also gave the restaurant a great vibe. Overall, a great experience and would definitely recommend!
Everything we had was delicious. We had brunch and they have bottomless mimosas for $15: get the lychee flavor. We had the corned beef hash, papaya salad (my personal favorite), a ramen dish whose name I forget, the red curry where I simply wish they had more soft noodles in it, the sizzling sissig (sp?), and the doughnuts (which I didn't try because I was stuffed).
Pig and Khao was great, as always. We opted for the tasting menu and were completely satisfied - perfect amount of food, good variety, lots of great flavors, and a decent value.
We had a reservation and still had to wait about 15-20 minutes for a table, but the restaurant bought us a round of cocktails while we waited. Great service.
First time at this restaurant and I must say the food was delicious. I love filipino food and the ones we ordered did not disappoint. It's the familiar filipino dishes w/ a twist. :) The portion was good enough for two of us and it's very filling. We ordered the pork belly adobo with egg and also the pork sisig. For dessert w/ had the turon with salted caramel ice cream, so good.
This is a place I would recommend to my friends when they visit NYC and I look forward to going back in the future. One thing that can be added to the menu is veggie dishes. I did not see anything listed.
Great service, food came out quick and very tasteful and yum.
I Wish they would allow you to modify your options when ordering. I like my eggs scrambled but they refuse to have it scrambled which is unusually, but to each its own. I wont be returning the drinks were great I tried the peach mimosa ,the sausages was a bit salty but tasty and the garlic rice was ok.
We ate at Pig and Khao and had a lovely dinner. Everyone loved everything we ate. We ordered some small plates as a starter en a few big plates as a main. Really good Asian Fusion food. We eat Asian all the time, we're Indonesian ourselfs, and loved the whole meal!
Food was great as usual, however new staff may need some more training or assistance. Waiter was nice overall. But 15+ minutes for check then another half hour at card machine as the young lady did not know how to use machine. The she charged us the wrong amount thanked god we review check before we gave back signed receipts. Still love pig and khao food just service could've been better, it's usually is 🤷🏽♀️
As a Filipino-American, I am thrilled to support a restaurant that serves Filipino food reimagined in a creative, modern, accessible way. There aren't many places that highlight this cuisine, which is a shame because there are many wonderful aspects to it, and as far as Asian cuisines go, it is usually underrepresented in the mainstream. So kudos to Chef Leah Cohen for bringing a great sampling of Filipino's finest fused with the ever-appealing and crowd-pleasing Thai flavors. Please stop by and patronize this Lower East Side gem if you're looking to try something new, exciting, surprising, and just damn good!
I'm pretty sure when this restaurant first opened its doors the food was extraordinary. Like most things, it didn't last. The food was absolutely mediocre at best , it either had no flavor or was too salty. I walked away feeling robbed of my hearing and money. Why is the music so damn loud?! Why is the only memorable thing that spicy tequila cocktail with watermelon? Wouldn't recommend eating here which is sad bc the menu was so interesting
