A step above in terms of thai cuisine. Everything is just a little more carefully prepared, a little better seasoned and just a little better generally. Absolutely one of the best Thai restaurants in the US.

Everything was good at Erawan - sat us at our reservation time, attentive service, and tasty food. Our only complaints were that it was noisy, and the food was not plentiful. We ordered a noodle dish that had surprisingly few noodles, and the vegetable dish we had, while tasty, was a smaller serving than we expected for the price. I would still go back, but would order accordingly

Solid, conisistent food and service. The wasabi shrimp appetizer with the sauce is out of this world! Tried the Erawan steak with a side of pickled vegetables for the first time and this was amazing. My "go to" drink is Samui Island Martini - hello delicious coconut!!! Can't wait to go back!

Been coming to Erawan for many years. They never disappoint us with the quality of the food, drinks (Cosmos are the best!) or service. It's like going home.

I just love that place and the atmosphere ! And it was not noisy at all.

Just maybe mention more tofu options in writing on the menu for vegetarian people.

I definitely will be reserving here again! I’d been to Erawan before, so I knew that the food would be great. The food was amazing; workers were so friendly, but I did notice that the price was a little steeper than I remember it a few months ago. There are definitely cheaper Thai places to go to for similar taste, but I think for location sake it was pretty reasonable. I’ll be coming here again for special occasions only/when I have the money to

My husband and I have been dining at Erawan for over 10 years and always an excellent meal. We travel from Suffolk County to Bayside about 1x a month and have brought numerous friends with us. The owners are always there making sure everything is top notch! They are both great people! And their son is the bartender and makes a great Asian pear martini too! If you want great authentic Thai food this is the place!

Tossup between 3 and 4 stars.

Not bad for a typical Thai restaurant. The decor is somewhat upscale, and a lot of the menu is seafood. The menu has a lot of "choose your meat with this or that curry" type items typical of common restaurants, but also has some unusual choices as well like shrimp with spinach and tamarind sauce. There are also a lot of traditional dishes on the menu like pad thai and pad see-eiw (which we didn't try).

We had a papaya salad, a Thai dumpling (kanom jeeb), and seared scallops in a coconut milk and curry sauce (hoi shell). The papaya salad was probably the least traditional, most boring version of it I've ever had: very little spice, and I think no fish sauce in the dressing nor peanuts or dried shrimp in the mix. It was like they were trying to keep it vegetarian so that more people could order it. It tasted mostly of lime but nothing else. The dumplings also disappointed; while the filling was okay, the dumpling skin was over-cooked and far too soft.

However, the hoi shell (scallops) were in a sauce that everyone in our party of six enjoyed. The scallops were well done but were obviously cooked separately and dropped into the dish, so they had a separate, milder flavor. The two other couples at the table mostly enjoyed their softshell crab and fried rice (though in my opinion the soft-shell crab was overly salty).

Overall, the food choices are hit-or-miss. You might find a gem or a ho-hum dish. Service was a bit inattentive, but nothing to short the tip on.

The service was good. However, most of the dishes were bland - tasteless. Also disturbing was that only after we left the restaurant did we discover that posted on the front window was a sign saying that in celebration of their 20th Anniversary Erawan was offering a three course meal for $20 per person (including most of the dishes we were ordering) if ordered by 7pm. Our reservation was at 6:30. We did not see the sign before entering. But we asked our waitress before ordering if there were any specials and she read off a list but never mentioned the 20th Anniversary special. No did they have a Special insert to give us. We will never go back to this restaurant again. That is no way to run a business.

The appetizers were delicious however our main orders were messed up. We ordered 3 of the same chicken dish, one with no spice, one regular, and one with extra spice, however they all came out with no spice and were very bland. The chef should have prepared the food as ordered, or the waitress should have recommended another similar dish for those who wanted no or extra spice.

This restaurant was recommended to me and I am so glad it was. The Service was very good and the food was even better. I was with a close friend that was celebrating a birthday and when I asked the staff to help me say happy birthday, they went all out. It was just Great. I truly recommend this restaurant and will, hopefully, return for a second visit sometime in the future.
