    We had a delicious dinner with five people. We were not super hungry but got two curry dishes (the salmon and the noodle soup) along with the papaya salad. The service was spectacular and the drinks were tasty. I love the ambiance and the robust flavors here. Can’t wait to return.

    The food was fantastic. Pork curry noodle is now one of my favorite dishes. The service leaves a lot to be desired. Didn't know asking for a spoon would be a difficult request. Also, please clear the table before bringing the next round of orders.

    Always great. Market bowls are the best lunch deal around, by far. Brussels sprouts, sticky rice, bang bang sauce round it out. Toasted coconut ice cream was perfect dessert. Everyone is friendly, vibe is relaxed, restaurant is cozy, 80s sound track they play always makes me smile. I love this place.

    The meal started with promise because the appetizers were very good. The pork spring rolls in particular had a light crunchy wrapper and the filling was moist and delicious. The main dishes were too saucy and salty, and every main dish came out with cheap and conventional American broccoli as opposed to the Asian vegetables listed on the menu. Don’t get me wrong: the food was pretty good overall, and the loud group of young men having a bachelor party were having the time of their lives, but for $100 a person I expect a better food experience. The waiters were super pleasant and attentive.

    My friends and I were excited to try Khe-Yo for dinner during Restaurant Week. Heard from other friends that the food, especially the pork belly was amazing there. We were met with friendly staff and Gerard, the manager. The place was nice and cozy with ambient lighting. We were seated by the front window with partial view of a beautifully lit skyline. Table was large and comfortable for our party of five. Drinks were ordered, they came immediately. They were yummy. We then ordered from the Restaurant Week menu which had the option of the pork belly as a main course … four out of five of us ordered the pork belly entree - and it was truly disappointing. Pork belly was dry (maybe it was reheated?) and tossed in with some very heavily salted vegetables. If it weren’t for the side of rice that came with the meal, I would not have been able to eat the food. Appetizers of chicken and kale were rubbery. Kale was so salty that it was inedible. Did someone double salt the vegetables that evening? Felt like the whole meal was cooked in a very perfunctory manner. Will not be returning- really disappointing.

    Food was delicious. I had quail small plate and Salmon in Green Curry as entree. Both awesome! I was shocked at the treads on steps going down to bathroom. They were loose, there was no guard rail. This is an accident waiting to happen. I have to caveat my full recommendation of food with the steps safety concern. Shocked really.

    I love Khe-yo and have visited whenever we are over from the UK. Bang bang rice balls are a must and the dishes are excellent. This time I did notice the prawn sizes are materially smaller than with previous visits, but aside from that it was at its usual high standard.

    I came here 8 years ago during my previous NY visit when the place was still in its early days and on returning I was glad to see they are still doing well. Food was great and the tamarind ginger soda was a nice touch. The kitchen closes around 9 so best to get there earlier and have more time as we had to keep an eye on the clock near the end

    Surprisingly disappointing experience for the last of 5 nights eating our way through NYC. The “flavors”/seasoning of food were good so first but had potential….but then. Our party of three had the pork belly wraps and the Chile chicken. But the chicken was dry. And the skin on the pork belly had been cooked a little too long it had moved from the crackle stage to hard/not breakable-with-teeth stage. The “pork” section of the belly was either 50-75% fat. The vinegar/garlic sauce was helpful in softening the skin. The waitress never had suggested specials (which we overheard offered to guests later) - and not once stopped by to ask how dinner was even though the restaurant was not crowded at that earlier hour. Perhaps they had different staff that week. There are much better experiences on same block in Tribeca…

    The food and drinks are delicious, definitely a great place to eat with (to me) a novel cuisine. The place gets very busy and noisy, and they don't have enough wait staff to move things along, but as long as you're not in a hurry, it's fine

    While this is a super cosy, atmospheric place with kind waiters the food is really not very good nor are the drinks. My chicken laap salad has a few beansprouts but was lacking in herbs, fresh vegetables and that tang it should have from the sour fish salty dressing. The heat was flat. I couldn’t finish it. The prawn noodles were worse. Gloopy overcooked, and stuck together with a drizzle of sauce closer to American barbecue and weird pickled jalapeños to not mention the overcooked prawns that tasted of dirty grill. They exchanged my horrible Margharita which had clearly been made with some prefab mix. This is not authentic Laotian food. But if you don’t care about that the place is super cosy…

    A visitor from Wisconsin raved about Khe Yo so I decided to try their restaurant week menu. It was delicious! Quite a bargain, too, at $30. Fresh yellowfin tuna sashimi in a delectable peach sauce. Entree was a heaping portion of roasted hen of the woods mushrooms with a sweet chili sauce, rice noodles, lettuce, bean sprouts and cucumbers. So good I'll go back again and happily pay their regular prices! I went there at an off hour (4 pm) so the service was fabulous and the place was quiet. I have a hunch it is much livelier in the evening.

    Ive been to Khe-Yo three times now with large family groups and have loved the experience every time. Have always sat outside. The food is excellent and so is the service and ambiance. The shrimp toast is to die for and nothing like you would imagine it would be. Everything on the menu is outstanding except for the sweet and sour chicken which was a little too sweet for us. The other standouts are the fried fish and the beef stir-fry.
