Food was delicious, but as we were there longer, it became louder and louder and felt like the music was turned up way too high. By the end of dinner, I could hardly hear the individuals I was sitting with.

The duck and the khao soi were my favorites. The khao soi was spicy with the curry but very good. The duck was so tender.

Pig and Khao has a great vibe and the food is delicious. It's some of the best Southeast Asian food I've had in New York (speaking as a Malaysian). Always a cool place to bring friends.

The place is cozy and there’s an open kitchen that made the place smoky and humid. Reminded me of Manila hahaha. Don’t let that put you off because the food is AMAZING! The ribs, pork belly adobo and sizzling sisig were worth every calorie. Will definitely go back to try the other entrées

Food was good but almost everything was very spicy. I asked the server about heat level and he said it was mild but it definitely was not as I couldn’t really eat most of the food due to spiciness. If you like spicy - you would really like it.

Favorite place on the LES for flavorful and clean Asian food (mostly flip dishes)
Took my flip husband here, and he was pleasantly surprised. Great 90's hip-hop playlist a plus, as is seeing the celeb chef Leah Cohen onsite often. Love the baby octopus and coconut rice!

I have been going to P&K for almost 5 years now?? sometimes multiple times a month and always on my birthday (halloween) Outstanding service and excellent food.
I tend to bring new people with me all the time and they always leave more than satisfied. After much debates amongs friends, I can cast my vote, that this is hands down, overall (food/price/service) the best location for dinner in nyc. The staff is welcoming and always polite, specially the host. Its just fair game, which is rare in NY, and EVERY SINGLE item on the menu is delicious. You won’t be dissapointed.
My onlyyyyy feedback would be, bring back the curry wings lol.

This place is fantastic and one that I take many, many people too. This isn't your traditional Thai food, and is a small but perfected menu. An excellent choice for adventurous eaters.

This was our second visit to Pig and Khao, and this time, we took a friend so that we could all get the tasting menu. Our waitstaff was lovely - explaining every dish and making the evening and meal a lot of fun. The food was flavorful and thoughtfully prepared. Highlights were the chicken wings, pad Thai and actually - everything - plus the two desserts. The beer selection was great. We each found something that we felt would taste great with the food. We hope to return soon.

Food was good...sisig seemed to be a small portion, so was the adobo. Loved the crispy pata as it is boneless. A little pricey for the small plates. Wished there was a little more choices on the large plates

I keep trying to go back there but I can’t anymore the tables are just too close together. It really spoils the whole experience you can’t help but hear other people’s conversations. It is also very uncomfortable making people move so that you can get in and out of your seat.

When you're tired of the same old-same old...give these guys a go. The sizzling sisig is not to be missed, and the pork belly adobo is the stuff of legend! Bartenders crank out fantastic and unique cocktails as well. If you really hate loud rap music, bring earplugs cause they blast it non-stop. But believe me, it's worth enduring for the awesome grub.
