Great food and cocktails, awesome vibe. I would recommend the Khao Soi, Sizzling Sissig, and Bangkok Fire or Tamarind Spice for drinks.

One of the best meals I’ve had in awhile ! The pork belly and duck were incredible! We will definitely be going back ASAP! Service was also amazing!

The flavors were excellent overall - dishes were well-seasoned and the flavor profile was pretty accurate for the Filipino & Thai dishes that we ordered. I appreciated that the halo-halo had no beans, but the leche flan should have been creamier - nevertheless still a very enjoyable dish on a warm night! However because it was a Saturday night and very busy, the dishes were *very* slow to come out of the kitchen - 20 minutes before the chicharon came out (something that can be made well in advance of service starting and should take less than a minute to plate).

Food was very good. The place has a nice vibe. Thought the service could be less rushed. There were no customers waiting but as soon as we took the last bite, our plates were taken away.

Creative, delicious dishes. Recognizable ingredients with a flair and depth.
Mixed drinks are also creative and refreshing and pair well with the food.
Felt it's pricey, but will definitely return for a fun, special meal.

There are hundreds of restaurants in the five boroughs that can easily be recommended for any of the attributes listed by Open Table. And, to be certain, Pig and Khao does indeed qualify for many of them. However, when I go to a restaurant, I go to eat, and if the food is lousy, there is nothing else that'll make up for it. This restaurant serves DELICIOUS food. I first went there about three years ago, loved it, and was not disappointed with my latest and second visit. It's comforting to know that in a city where even good restaurants come and go, that Pig and Khao is still around. Everything we had was flavorful, satisfying, and perfectly seasoned and cooked! I also had a drink named "Mr. Horchata", which was one of the most delicious cocktails I've ever had. Keep up the excellent work!

I've been to Pig and Khao for different occasions, from dining alone to the most recent, which was celebrating my birthday. I always have a wonderful experience--the food is fantastic, flavorful, and comforting, and the ambiance is fun (music is great). I love introducing this place to new diners--they always leave with the same feeling. Can't wait to find another reason to go back!

This is one of my favorite dining spots. The food was excellent like usual but the service was less than par, which was surprising. Food was delayed for a slow night. We had to keep asking for dishes that were forgotten. But the thing that urked me the most was that my dish was taken away while I was still eating. I had to ask the staff to please return my plate as I was still working on it.

great food i am pescatarian & they were very conducive & helped me find an option that fit my needs. it is definitely a small restaurant so i would keep that in mind if you’re looking for a place for a bigger group or dont like restaurants where they’ve crammed in a lot of tables. the restaurant has a great vibe & is very energetic which can make it challenging to have a conversation but i over look that for how phenomenal the food is :)

This is my second trip to Pig & Khao. I love this place. Small, a little warm at the chef's counter, and noisy in a good way. The food is delicious and I always overeat, I just don't want to stop. Other "Asian Fusion" type of food doesn't hold a candle to the inventiveness of the chef. The infusion of Fillipino into Thai and other Asian gives the food a kind of familiarity and yet it's very unique. I could probably be satisfied just with the Coconut Rice and peanuts, LOL! But we went tasting menu this time, well worth it. A steal for NYC. This is a go-to place for me in NYC! Long-live P&K!

Food was great but don't make reservations after 9pm, they will turn on the lights, blast the music, and do everything in their power to kick you out if you go past 10pm. Quite rude, we had to chug our drink and leave.

They tried to sit us in the corner near the bathroom. Which would’ve prevented some of us from sitting comfortably. It was also uncomfortably warm/hot inside. We didn’t even keep our reservation. Probably never doing back again. And certainly wouldn’t suggest this place to anyone.

Very disappointing

I grew up in the Philippines and was so excited to try this place out. A lot of my friends have raved about this place and it was finally my turn to try it. I was really impressed with the staff and how efficient they were in terms of making sure everyone was enjoying their time. I paid close attention to how they moved around the very small area since my friend was unfashionably late and I needed a distraction. Sadly, that was one of the two positive experiences that stayed with me.

My friend and I ordered a pork belly and spicy noodle dish and that pork was cooked to perfection. Everything else was just okay in terms of flavor. I still think about that pork belly from time to time, and it always puts a smile on my face.

The seating arrangement was disorienting. I know New York is starved of real estate but this place really crammed two-tops next to each other in a way where it feels like they're more interested in generating business than creating a nice experience for the diners. It's impossible to have a conversation when you can hear the next table's conversation as well. If I needed to leave my table, my friend and I literally had to move our table for a few inches so I can get out of my seat. I'm a very slim person but I felt like I had to flex my barely there athleticism so I don't knock out anything on mine and the next guest's table. It was almost impossible to get in and out of my seat without worrying if I knock down a plate or hit a person's face.

I probably wouldn't come back here for a sit down dinner but I would order food to-go so I can eat it at the comfort of my own tiny apartment.

I don't get to eat this type of food very often. I thought it was delicious, well...though the menu was a bit meat heavy in my opinion. Would have loved to see more noodle options in the future. We ordered 5 small plates including the curry noodles and the pork belly adobo. And loved the coconut rice with the steamed vegetables. The sisig was a bit salty, in my opinion. Loved all the dishes except that.
Restaurant can use a bit more ventilation. Our clothes smelled like the grill when we got home. But the price one pays for good food. Will come here again!

Tables are a bit close together, but not a huge problem. The modern spin on Filipino and other SE Asian cuisines makes up for it.

Most of what we ordered was extremely greasy - really disappointed.
The noodle soup (curry / khao?) was very good though.
Was not allowed to change table when most seats empty (but person who brought
us to table refused to ask anyone if it would be an issue) - sat next to someone who moved
his seat and forced the table up against ours, so we ended up having to deal with their very loud flirty behavior for our dinner - not good.

We chose this place in part because my son attends the culinary institute of America. The food was pretty good but the service was really bad. The prices were not commensurate with the service. They messed up our order. They forgot to input the vegetables that we ordered. So, we had to wait like 15 minutes while our entree sat in the table getting cold. No apologizes, no offer to make things better. Then they brought the check without asking if we wanted desert...which we did. When you spend $200 for dinner you expect at least the level of service you would get at Olive Garden.

Our waitress took 15 minutes to come over to the table with water. We were sat in the back corner and ignored for the time we were there/ We participated in the bottomless brunch yet were cut off 30 minutes early- with no warning- after only have 2 pitchers of mimosas between 4 people. If I'm paying for a bottomless brunch, I expect to have a full mimosa majority of the time there. That certainly did not happen. The waitress was rude and literally threw food on the table. One friend's dish came out 20 minutes 20 MINUTES before everyone else's with no explanation from the waitress. The food was tasty but overall not worth the price/rest of the experience we had. At one point, I had to get up and ask the bus boy for water refills. The appetizers we ordered never came either. Overall, I won't be going back and I would not recommend coming too this restaurant. The service ruined our experience.

Great place.....love the food BUT one BIG flaw!

....Why is it that they always suggest way more food than we can eat?

The waitress suggested (for 3 people) 5 appetizer dishes and 3 main dishes.
We orderd 3 appetizers and 2 main dished and didn't even touch the 2nd main course....way too much food.

It was a little obvious that our waitress was are concerned with selling more!
This is a turn off.........you would think that a restaurant like this would be smater than that.

I've been there about 5 times and same story....I don't think I will be going back.

The food here was absolutely delicious. We had the bottomless brunch option (not bad for $15) but they ran out of the lychee mimosas by 230pm on a Sunday. I was pretty excited about it because I had heard good things, but I would definitely go back again.

P.S. get a side of the garlic rice. You will not regret it!
