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.

Went here for restaurant week dinner. The tasting menu was delicious. We were full by the time the third course came around, and everything that we got was amazing. One of those bite into it and you are immediately filled with happiness type of amazing.

The food is superb, and if I block out the hellish heat in which they make you eat, I would give Pig and Khao 5/5. However, the air conditioning at this place is terrible. I would not recommend going there in the New York summer; this place is better saved for winter time when ambient freezing temperatures make up for the lack of air conditioning on the inside.

I would go back for the Sizzling Sisig! The place isn’t over priced but too loud, probably because it was Sunday brunch time. Ambience and interiors aren’t plush, we went for the restaurant week deal but ended up just ordering a main each with OJ, we were full and paid less than the restaurant week!

Went for dinner during restaurant week with a group of friends. The food was delicious! Between us we ordered pretty much everything on the RT menu and everything was very tasty. Good vegetarian options for every course. Note that this restaurant serves 4 courses for their RT dinner and portions are very generous. We were all stuffed and couldn’t finish it all. Only downside was we were seated in the back part of the restaurant which was very cold and didn’t have as nice atmosphere as the main area. Service was also quite slow, especially for our drinks. Overall great place with a fun vibe, would come back again.

This place is definitely a neighborhood gem and definitely enjoyed myself during restaurant week. However, the taste and quality of the food can be easily overlooked by the timeliness of the food and humidity in the actual restaurant. After placing our order, the first dish did not reach our table after 40 minutes. We did however, was offered a complimentary glass of Prosecco which we appreciated after the server apologized for the kitchen mishap. Overall, if you don't mind waiting a little, sitting in a heated room close to the kitchen for good authentic food, I would definitely recommend.

So the place was a tight squeeze. Hostess and waitress/waiters were all pleasant. It was a Friday night so Super Busy!! Everyone stopped at the table to always check on us. Water glasses were full- Thank God because it did get hot in there.
I was there on a Friend Date and we wanted to try them during Restaurant Week. Food was ridiculously Amazing. I am not one who cares for anything curry. However it was phenomenal! Restaurant Week dinner menu was full of flavor and a lot of food even for 2 people. Both desserts offered were great!
Thank you for the great food and friendly service.

Second time going to P&K and the food was as delicious as the first time. The service is friendly, but the kitchen is right in the center of the restaurant which allows you to see the food being prepared and leave the restaurant smelling like your favorite dish.

Filipino cuisine with Thai and Vietnamese influences that combine to create something better than each of those cuisines individually. The menu is unique, the food is fresh, flavorful, and richly spiced. The food is out of this world, the venue - a bit ordinary, and the noise level - deafening.

Going to the LES these days is an experience in itself. To say that it's changed over the years would be an understatement. There are so many cool new restaurants, galleries and bars that have sprung up. It's a good place to spend some time. Pig and Khao has been on my list for a while. The food was good, especially the green papaya salad and fried chicken. The service was excellent as was their Thai spicy tequila/watermelon cocktail. On the negative side, the space is small, which wouldn't be a problem if it
weren't so hot.... I don't know if they have ac at all and there were only two fans blowing from a distance. The music is great and it gets a little loud. I'll go back but not before summer ends.

The service was great. However, I wasn't impressed with the food. I definitely had better Filipino food. The green papaya salad was way too tart. The malaysian fried chicken was good, but nothing to praise about. And the other dishes were just mediocre. My friend did enjoy the coconut rice. As for the halo halo, the small brown cube (not sure what it is called) next to the flan was hard. I don't think it add any flavor to the dessert, but instead just brought down the dessert. The halo halo was big enough to be shared between 2-3 people. The music kept getting louder and louder as we were dining which was annoying. It was difficult to have a conversation without leaning in towards my friends. The restaurant has an open kitchen and caused the restaurant to be stuffy. At least where we were sitting was very stuffy. Our table was near the kitchen and bathroom in the back of the main room. Overall, I don't think the food is worth the price.

Servers should suggest a salad or side vegetable, otherwise you end up with a meal of pure protein. Pure, delicious, rich, salty, fatty, crisp and chewy protein.
Cocktails are brilliant.
