This is hands down one of my favorite restaurants. My boyfriend and I drove down from Boston to try this restaurant and I would hands down do it again. The pork adobo with some coconut rice and the sauce so delicious. Highly recommend this place!

Been wanting to try for a long time. Finally did and it was ok. Small, cramp seatings. Service was good. Pricey. Food was ok. Our favorites were mushroom salad and corn elote. Portion was small but they tasted good. Papaya salad was very bland. Needs to stick with authentic Thai version. Overall, good place for meet up or a treat.

The food was phenomenal! Each dish brought a different flavor and was well balanced. The only dish that I didn’t enjoy as much was the octopus dish, I felt it was a little too salty. I would have preferred a noodle dish like Khao Soi or something similar instead. Service was excellent as well. Still thinking about the chicken curry in the spoon!

Six of us went for dinner to celebrate a friend's birthday. We requested a roomy table as we were knew that we would be ordering just about everything & we were seated at a rather narrow table on top of each other by the entrance. The place is tight... I would have much preferred to be along the banquette. I asked if we could sit in the back room where there were 4 tops & we could stretch out some. We made due, but in the case where we specifically requested it, I really wish we were prioritized. We ordered every small plate & some in multiples so there would be enough for everyone. All with the exception of the mushrooms, pork jowl salad & beef noodles. Our favorites by far were the pork belly in adobo (SO crunchy & mmm), the papaya salad (so refreshing) & the prawns in curry leaves. We found the octopus tough. (Being mediterranean we're tough octopus critics) The noodle dishes were tasty, heat level was on point. We ordered the sisig (no liver), but we much preferred the pork belly. Servers were VERY attentive, empty dishes were cleared promptly & not too hastily or while we were still eating. Plates & silverware were swapped out between courses which is a big plus for me. Our drinks were SO tasty & creative. Even the non-alcoholic sweet & sour cilantro soda was delicious. We ordered the fried chicken, ribs & duck X2 with some rice, those awesome BUNS & corn sides (so sweet!) Great sharing portions & very tasty! Highlight here was the DUCK. Sliced breast & crispy legs over rice. Beyond delicious. Not sure if the kitchen made an oops, but they gave us a 3rd order of duck for our table. Dessert was also very festive & interesting. We ordered all 3 & shared. We loved the music playlist here & not too loud. The bill was very reasonable for all the food & drinks for (6), we took care of our wait staff & it was a successful celebration sans singing & cake. Our only wish was for more elbow room. Well done! We'll be back.

We are Australian foodies who have a yearning for good ingredients treated with respect and imagination. We loved P and K for delivering original dishes sublimely and the staff made the experience all so very enjoyable. And to cap it off they cooked to our unreasonable schedule brilliantly! Full marks from us.

They cut the two hour mimosa special short by over 20minures due to “high turnover” - don’t offer the deal if you won’t respect or honor it.

JAMAL is the best!!! The whole staff is amazing. The food is unmatched in downtown in my opinion within the Northern Thai fusion category. It's my ultimate favorite spot with amazing music, always a good vibe. I've brought 14+ people here separately in the last 1 year and every single time it impresses them.

The waiter was so rude. Our reservation was for 11:45 am by one o’clock the waiter told us that we’re not able to order more food because he needs the table at 1:45pm for the next 45 mins the waiter completely rushed us out. He stood over our table and the table besides us and Constantly told us we had to leave. He gave us a count down and when 1:40 pm came, he told us that we need to leave right now because another party is coming in. I would like to say that there was multiple tables which was vacant. When my party leaf we noted that there was NOT another party waiting, NOT a single soul. I thought the waiter was rude, this was my birthday brunch and if I didn’t have the company of good friends around me, that waiter would had ruined my special day. I will never dine or recommend this restaurant. My decision Is solely based on the waiter.

Food was good, but had have had way better in Chinatown for a fraction of the price. I understand it’s a “ trendy” spot. However the food wasn’t anything special. There’s no soups at all, which we in Southeast Asia eat soups all year round and is a major part of our cuisine. Also, we had two servers, one female and one male. The female server was very sweet and polite, where as the tall male server was very cold. He asked us 3 times while we were still eating if we were done. I Thought it was very rude, also my friend got up to go to the bathroom and as he was getting up, he slightly bumped into the same server and after apologizing to him, the server rolled his eyes and walked off. I surely won’t be back.

Ah, the food was sooo good. Because our reservation was in the early part of the night, at 6:30, we weren't really hungry for a lot of food, so decided to order two small plates and a couple of drinks. My girlfriend ordered a pink-ish drink, which she said is one of the best ones she's had. I ordered the Lucky Buddha beer, which is always as refreshing!
For food, we ordered KHAO SOI and PORK BELLY ADOBO and we probably ate every last bit of it, which left us no room for either a large plate or any dessert (but the people next to us had the MALAYSIAN FRIED CHICKEN that looked divine: definitely coming to try that next time!) The Khao Soi, which is crispy egg noodles with chicken, was really good, but the Adobo was just mouth-watering: so crisp, tender and brilliant! I wish we had been a bit more hungry on the night, so may be will reserve for later in the night so we could eat more, but I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to go. Our server was excellent with explaining to us what different food items were and we're grateful for his service!

Until another time, Pig & Khao!

We came here for brunch with a group of 8 and really enjoyed it. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Servers were very attentive with food/drinks. They provided pitchers of our bottomless mimosas so we never ran dry! The food was fun and flavorful but overall too salty. Would still come back again though.

The service was excellent. Staff were very attentive and friendly. The vibe was hip yet casual. The Filipino food was delicious and authentic, especially the sizzling sisig. It is always great customer service when the chef and owner likes and comments on your Instagram post about your experience at their establishment. We will definitely return during our next visit to New York.

The food was really good and the server was nice though when we asked her if we were ordering too much she said no when we clearly had. She said she hoped we’d be lucky with the chef’s mood when we asked to leave off an unwanted garnish (???). Food came out in fits and starts - we had finished everything else and ten minutes later the last dish (which we really didn’t need) finally came out. Unnecessarily noisy in there - blasting music even when there a few people in the place. Ventilation could be better, too. We all reeked of garlic for hours after we left. A mixed bag experience.

I frequent P&K at least once a month and it’s normally one my favorite restaurants in NYC. This is the first time I’ve been disappointed. I just say the food was amazing as usual - absolutely no complaints there. Firstly we were rushed through by our waiter - we were in and out in under an hour. The waiter was also uncompromising when it came to the Restaurant Week deal. We had a celiac with us and there were sufficent options on the set menu which is understandable however the other 2 of us wanted to do it. Rather than being flexible and showing reasonable judgment It was a flat no. Had it simply been that someone didn’t want to do the menu then that’s understandbable but considering it was for health reasons the inflexibility was truly disappointing

Not such a great place for vegetarians. They had a special vegetarian menu for restaurant week but not available unless the whole table was eating.
We were luckily seated down the back as the main seating was super warm.
But overall the food is great & there is a cool vibe provided you don’t mind some noise.
