The food was well presented. The coconut rice was very good, the rest of the food was average. For the price, not worth the $350 (6 people).
They would not accept the open table gift certificate that we brought and made no attempts to accommodate the fact that they are part of the open table network that accepts the gift cards.
Great place! Food is amazing; arrived early and got seated immediately. Service is prompt but not overly attentive (which was ok). Definitely will go back.
I have never been disappointed with Kye-Yo. The food and service are wonderful and the atmosphere is terrific for conversation and dining. Chef Phet is super.
Everything so so good. The food is amazing, interesting but authentic. The environment is nice, and service was great. Impressive list of reserve wines (of which we did not partake), but the wines by the glass were good too. Loved it and can’t wait to go back.
To like Khe Yo you should need to like spicy. All the plates we ordered were spicy and extremely tasty. Quite different from all other Asian foods we have had. The crab was exceptional and the pork head (available on weekends) is quite unique.
Everything was great - as always!
Conflicted about my review for Khe-Yo. I had an incredible lunch here a few weeks ago and returned for dinner. The Dinner menu was complete different and challenging as we had a vegetarian and someone allergic to shellfish. Our waiter was super annoyed and showed it. He made it difficult for us to choose as he kept telling us what we could not eat (almost the entire menu) instead of telling us what we could order. We almost left until he said he could make a vegetarian salad for our starter. The food that came out was spectacular. I'd caution anyone that dietary guidelines to take a long look at the menu before coming here to eat.
That spice! Amazing. Our server Alex was great! Had the large table in the front for two on Valentine’s Day. Great service, amazing food and atmosphere. If you’re in the hood, check it out. We’ll be back!
The food was extraordinary and special! The chef is Magic!
We went for Valentine’s day and they had pre-fix menu. The choices were limited compared to normal menu. Our meal was ok but nothing spectacular.
Crab was too much work
Consistently the most interesting meal in TriBeCa. Keep it up!
Food is always great!
I went this place a few days ago. I am a huge fan of Thai food for a couple decades, and I can honestly say the food at this place was the worst Thai food I have ever experienced. Everything was completely over seasoned: too salty, too sweet, too spicy. Moreover, it was very expensive by comparison to other Thai restaurants. I don’t mind paying for good food, but when every dish is bad it’s very irritating.
The service was also mediocre at best, despite being nice people. Waited too long for our requests, lack of attention / no follow up to verify our experience, etc.
I can say, however, the ambiance was nice and the bartender, while I was waiting for my table, was very good
Started with Pumpkin soup for restaurant week which was excellent. I would return just for the soup. Then shared duck leg which was also very good. The main course was Tuna which was uninspiring. Service was excellent, lovely waitress and they let us share the soup with 2 bowls which was very accommodating. Rice pudding was very good.
The food was quite good, especially the pork belly buns and the desserts. But the service was abominable. Our food got cold waiting for implements. Drinks arrived after main course was nearly over. I cut the tip in half and the manager made a fuss. He accused us of occupying the table for four hours. That's ridiculous. Our reservation was at 7 and we were out by 9:30. No one was waiting for the table or we would have left earlier. I don't go out to eat to be insulted like that.
I’m not sure how many Laotian restaurants there are in NYC but this must be the best. Fresh clean beautifully spiced & presented with subtle panache. Just the sake list is worth the trip & I don’t even like sake.
Only 2 blocks from Chambers St station, Khe-Yo is a friendly resto with delicious Laotian food. YUM.
My partner and I went to Khe-Yo for Sunday lunch during New York City Restaurant Week, and we were really happy with our experience. We wanted to try a different cuisine that was not a fusion, as many restaurants on the NYC restaurant week tend to be. The food was wonderfully prepared, especially the steak salad and tuna steak, and it was bursting with flavor. The portions were not huge, but with three courses, we were just the right amount of full. The cocktail list is also very unique, and the bartender was happy to explain the different cocktails to us and recommend something that was uniquely Loatian and tailored to our tastes. The standout of the meal was the duck leg and steak salad.
One of my favorite restaurants in NYC. Inventive, intense flavors. I never had a bad meal here.
Khe-yo is always a home run. The food is delicious, creative and complimentary hot sauce and sticky rice is not to be missed. We have been here many times and it always delivers.
Good portions and delicious tasting menu for restaurant week. The duck was prepared perfectly and the hangar steak was cooked perfectly. Nice sauces .
Service can improve. Check wpuld come to the table without being requested. Table would not be ready at the reservatiin time and no complimentary drink would given for the delay.
It is always great dinning at kheyo
Retaurant week lunch. Pumpkin & coconut curry soup & crispy five spice duck leg were best. Grilled tuna main was seriously overcooked & dry- (they did give us $10 discount to compensate.) Desserts were good but not special. Grilled duck leg is not in their regular menu but should be.
I met up with a couple of friends for lunch during restaurant week. The interior is nice. The food was okay - crispy duck was appetizer was tasty and so was the rice pudding for dessert however the tuna was main course lacked the appropriate temperature and flavor. Above all the service was poor as it was super slow. What was meant to be a quick 1 hour lunch turned into 2 hours. We were charged in correctly and had to repeatedly explain the error. Not going to be back here again.
This was my first time eating Laotian food, and I absolutely loved it! I decided to be more adventurous with a few dishes, and it was well worth it. I would recommend the pork buns, ribeye, and crunchy coconut rice. It was also my first time eating frog legs, and it was delicious! In addition, our server was incredibly friendly.
It was very good to eat wonderful lunch~!! Service was also good.
Dined during restaurant week lunch and it was excellent!
Terrible service. The sticky rice was so dry it could make your throat bleed; it felt like someone stuffing sand down your throat. And most of the other dishes are over seasoned / salty and oily.
The lobster noodle was beyond salty as well as the ribs. It felt like the chef felt asleep when he was pouring the salt.
The only decent edible thing was the sea-bass and even that was a bit dry and overcooked. I didnt want to sound negative all the way. Haha. So thats that.
The pana cotta was so hard i thought i was eating frozen jello
Rigid policy and the foods were forgettable, so i really would suggest you save your time and try elsewhere.
Great place for a dinner, and the cost is definitely worth it. Great atmosphere, great food.
The hanger steak, sausages, and duck leg were all very good. Spices all on point for a Laotian meal. Service was a bit on the slow side which is the drawback.
Food is way too salty and the cooking is not very delicate. Been here many times but based on this restaurant week lunch, it is definitely going down hill.
Came here because I wanted to try a new cuisine and experience. I will say, they have some appetizers that are tasty, however, I didn’t like my entree. My server asked how was my meal? I didn’t care for it, it was bland and nothing was done to improve the experience.
Really nice place, excellent service and food of the restaurant week was amazing.
We went for the Restaurant Week dinner. Loved the decor and service was great. The bang bang sauce with sticky rice was the best thing we ate by far - super spicy but so tasty! The appetizers (frog legs and octopus) were both spicy and good - octopus was in a sweeter than expected sauce but still delish. The red snapper was flavorless and the biggest disappointment - not at all what we expected based on authentic Laotian fish in banana leaf preparation. The coconut gelato was good but nothing spectacular and the panda cotta was so over gelatinized, it was chewy. Disapponting meal overall but we wanted to like it so much we may try it again and see if the regular menu is better.
My husband and I discovered this place a few years ago, during restaurant week. We have gone several times a year since. When we realized it was restaurant week when we reserved we were hoping for a repeat of our first experience that had kept us coming back. The first thing I noticed was that the drinks menu was missing the wines by the glass and the cocktails and so we spent a lot more on a bottle of sake than we normally would have, which fortunately turned out to have been very much worth it. We felt rushed from the get-go when the appetizers came before the Sake. There were issues with my various dishes. The fermented cabbage that came with the frog-legs had a very off putting flavor. The frog-legs were cooked properly, though I enjoy the delicate flavor of the meat which was completely covered up by the overpowering spices and what I think was galangal. My fish came with large stalks of vegetables that were inedibly tough, though the fish itself was perfectly tender (these required very different steaming times but where steamed together). I felt like they were somewhat phoning it in for restaurant week here this year. On a positive note, we were running late and called ahead to let them know. When we arrived we were seated immediately. Our server was great too.
No vegetarian options, not very helpful servers also. I would skip this place if you have a vegetarian or a not so adventurous companion
