New Year's Eve Special Menus & Offers
Khe-Yo is open on New Year's Eve from 11am to 10pm serving our typical menu with holiday specials.
Food and service was amazing! Definitely my favorite place in NYC
Khe Yo has been a regular place for us to eat for years. We love the menu, variety, & atmosphere. It’s also been kid friendly when we have our young children with us at lunch/brunch. Staff is pleasant, helpful & prompt.
Hands down one of the best Asian meals I’ve ever eaten.
Outstanding in every way. My friends and I were so thrilled that Khe Yo is back with its wonderful, kind, attentive and smart staff. Love love love this restaurant.
We chose to sit outdoors- but chairs ( metal without cushion) were not very comfortable. Good for cafe seating. Not up to Khe yo standards
Appetisers and entrees all arrived together so entrees were cold by the time we ate.
The hostess never gave us the bill. Just the cc slips to sign.
Definitely not worth a repeat.
I felt like I was in a Vegas Resturant — very dark room, music loud, and very expensive without including alcohol
Great outdoor seating area and good food. One entree was a bit underwhelming (poached bass) but rest of meal was delicious. My friend had soju cocktail and she said it was the best drink she's had.
Limited menu, staff seemed lost, didn’t even come to our table/bring water and saw other tables who arrived later served before us. If Menu changed/way you guys cook (e.g., fish) changed, please let customer know
Really loved this place before the pandemic, now its just a disappointment
We went on a Thursday night to try something new in the neighborhood. We had someone visiting and wanted to try a cool restaurant with positive reviews.
The service was very efficient, however, I wish the dishes and recommended way to eat them would have been explained by our waitress. The meal felt very rushed and I wish I had been able to savor the meal and the experience of eating Laotian food more.
The food was delicious and the ambiance felt very cozy and trendy.
Overall, it’s a cool spot in Tribeca with a great location and unique fare.
Nice selection of large and small plates to share-or not. The veggies were all greens the night I was there-would be nice to have a little variety. Nice atmosphere.
Haven’t been here since they first opened, food was better than remembered. Maybe we ordered better this time?
Service was excellent and the indoor space was comfortable. If anything maybe the music selection could be better and less loud?
The decor could be livelier ? Hey but this is Covid time, glad to be alive.
Khe-Yo is my go-to for Lao food and family-friendly vibes in the city. It's the perfect date spot or for a special occasion shindig. The staff, and most importantly, Chef Phet are always so accommodating and truly make you feel like family!
I promise this will be one of your most memorable meals, don't miss it.
Excellent appetizers but 2 of 4 main dishes were just ok. Pork belly was overly fatty. The chicken was nicely crunchy but a bit overly sweet. It was too much like General Tso’s chicken from a fast food Chinese place. One friend liked her pork noodles and the other was mostly happy with a fish entree. Would go back for appetizers and drinks if in the area.
Facility needs to be spruced up and cleaned up. A good paint job would help.
Food was great, drinks were great, service was great. Daniel handled our large party extremely well, would definitely come back!
The new outdoor chairs are not very comfortable, but the food is so good.
Wow wow! My friends and I ordered the crispy pork belly dish - it tasted delicious. The skin was very crispy. The sauce and side dishes were also amazing. Best restaurant in nyc we have tried. Loved everything about the dish!
The food was disappointing. Some of the dishes (e.g. Spring rolls) were very delicious. But too many were not. The shredded chicken was overly vinegar-y and piquant. The Pho had an unusual, bitter under-taste that lovers of good Vietnamese Pho will find unpleasant. The Crispy Chicken with sweet chili sauce had too much chili sauce which overpowered the delicate taste of the crunchy fried chicken. They had run out of ribs which we had wanted to try. We were there on a Sunday night - perhaps the lead chefs were off for the day.
Viet coffee was wattered down; lack of flavor and sweetness.
Food was Ok. Flies all over the place. Service was ok. Hard to communicate
Outdoor afternoon brunch was delicious. Brought a couple who haven’t been before and they loved their meal.
great staff great food
Terrible Service and pricy.
Food was decent as best. Not enough veggie options. Bathrooms were filthy!
The restaurant was billed as vegetarian friendly. I am vegan. There was very few vegetarian dishes on the menu. I asked if the chef could make a veg dish for me and he made a tasteless dish that was mostly noodles with a tiny bit of bok choi and onions...and it cost $29. I was stunned. I complained about the lack of vegetables and the waiter brought me more bok choi but it didn't really help as the dish was still tasteless. This restaurant is very expensive and most dishes were mediocre. Drinks were way overpriced. The service was extremely slow. The prices were high end and the service and taste was poor. I would not return.
Everything was lovely, except all waiters should be wearing masks at this point, even outdoors
Food was super salty and service was really poor. Large gap in between courses
Mediocre food and service. Our "large plate" was the same size as our "small plate", with 50% of the dishes taken up by parsley and lettuce (no, this was not a salad). Our waiter did not stop by our table beyond serving our dishes, never returning for our drink order, to check in on us, or drop off the check. This was a birthday dinner and unfortunately a sore disappointment. Next!
The food was not as good as I remembered. And the service was pretty average, not much excitement or passion from the servers - felt like a production line.
Salmon Curry and Sweet and sour chicken are the best!
The lemon chicken photo looked like it was chicken breast. I received thigh meat of questionable quality. The roasted eggplant was mushy. In all, not tasty. Perhaps the hot sauces are to mask the taste. The service was great tho. And the ice cream desserts were good and good value.
Pretty disappointed to be honest, lacked service, so many people didnt know what to do, restaurant week deal was a scam, i basically got snapper cat food from a can and two shrimps entree and a scoop of ice cream for $39 crazy!!!
Tiny portions and high price premiums make for horrible value. And the taste was neither unique nor interesting. Slow and inattentive service. And finally, sticky floors. Just fails all across the board. Skip this spot.
Came here to celebrate my brothers 25th Birthday during Resturant Week/Month. Both the service and the food was great. We were impressed with the cornish hen and the steak pad thai in both presentation and taste. Their drinks and dessert were great! Recommended to go there!
The food was overpriced and mediocre (and that's perhaps too kind), although the service was good and the outdoor patio set up was beautiful and relaxing.
Really exceptional food and very professional service. Bravo!
Restaurant week lunch @ Khe-Yo was fantastic! Delicious food, nice variety on the set menu (we didn’t do dessert), great service, nice ambiance, spacious seating inside (& outside) and at an amazing price (regardless of restaurant week or a la carte). Can’t wait to come back and try other menu items! Thank you for a great birthday lunch (w/ my parents and boyfriend who were also pleased with the food, service & ambiance)! This was my first time having Laotian food and it is delicious (w/ some nice spice)!! FYI-With the new city mandate, the manager gently checked everyone’s ID & vaccine cards before we were seated.
Our waitress ignored us for an extremely long period of time.
The quality of the food went downhill since the last time we went. Prawn noodles were soupy and extremely sweet, and same with the chili chicken - both sauces tasted like they had been just dumped from the bottle. The sauces with the sticky rice were also not very flavorful, and the papaya salad was extremely fishy. We could not finish our food, and it was definitely not the authentic Laotian experience we had 6 years ago.
Second time being here, and it was as great as the first time. Staff was very attentive.
