Food was quite good, service was excellent. We had the Chilli Prawns, Beef Pho, Beef jerky, and Papaya Salad. Entrees were better than the appetizers but all in all was a great meal.

The service was great, food was fabulous, this has become my new go-to spot. I love their curbside set up with weather coverage and heaters. They have a modern wall-mounted thermometer. They take COVID safety SERIOUSLY.

Our table wasn’t prepared when we got to our reserved time. However, the manager gave us free drinks and a free dish. Even when the kitchen was closed, the manager went out of his way to let us order additional entrees. Would def come back here again. Not just the service was great, but the food was amazing.

Admittedly we were a largish group of 9 at Khe-Yo, but our experience of food and service was underwhelming especially for the price point. The crispy whole bass and the brussel sprouts were really good as were a couple of the drinks, the rest of the dishes we ordered were unmemorable.

Absolutely fantastic food. Killer lunch. Even the Berkshire pork dishes felt light on their feet and vibrant. Everything was delicious. It's been awhile since I've been dining out but I need to make this one of my regular stops.

Fresh, flavorful and ambient. Brought our 12 and our 15 year old girls here for dinner and they loved it. We had the pho, pork belly wraps, sweet chili chicken and papaya salad (hot). Added to our favorites list.

I’ve been eating here since it’s opening and I expected it to be lacking something due to the Covid outbreak but both me and my partner believe that it’s gotten way better. We felt so healthy after eating here and that is very unexpected because it is and east Asian restaurant with spices that can be intense. I felt like the flavors were unbelievable especially in the salmon curry. They were aromatic and had multi layers of flavor with each bite.

The wide rice noodles with shrimp dishWas also amazingly flavored. The shrimp were delicious and the grill flavoring gave it a smoky element that I did not expect. The vegetables that they offer Are beautifully seasons. The brussels sprouts were absolutely delicious with a medley off sweetly brined peppers. The baby bok choy was also really well flavored with tiny slivers of ginger. If I had to critique one thing I would say that any person ordering dishes should ask if the vegetables that they ordered for their appetizer are heavily featured in any of their entrées. The bok choy was heavily featured in my entrée and I got tired of it because I just had a large appetizer portion of the bok choy 🥬. But that would be my only critique and really the critique falls on the person who is ordering. The drinks are also amazing there is a daiquiri drink on the menu and I had two of them which is rare but the flavor in this drink was also multi dimensional.

A bit on the pricy side. The lemon shrimp and pork ribs go well with the rice. But if you are on diet on carbohydrates, they are a bit too salty to go alone.

The food at Khe-Yo was some of the best food I've eaten in the Tribeca area. I would definitely recommend this place to others and can't wait to be back. A little bit on the pricey side but well worth the price in my opinion. Great food!

Went there for Valentines dinner. The curried salmon was very good but the sweet chili evans chicken was disappointing. I was expecting something better than a dish that is comparable to panda express with a 29 dollar price tag.
