    We recently had an amazing dining experience at Khe Yo in Tribeca! Let me tell you, it was fantastic. The flavors were out of this world, and the atmosphere was just perfect for a fun and enjoyable evening. We started with their chicken wing special, and oh my goodness, they were absolutely delicious! The wings were perfectly cooked, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The flavor was incredible, and I couldn't get enough of them. Next up were the steak noodles. Oh boy, those noodles were a real treat! The steak was tender and flavorful, and it paired perfectly with the noodles. The dish had a great balance of flavors and textures that kept me coming back for more. One of the highlights of the evening was the pork belly lettuce wraps. They were packed with flavor and made for a delightful and interactive eating experience. Wrapping the tender pork belly in fresh lettuce leaves and adding the accompanying sauce was just heavenly. And let's not forget about the Brussels sprouts! They were simply outstanding. Cooked to perfection, they had a nice char on the outside and a tender, flavorful interior. They were an excellent addition to the meal and added a wonderful touch of variety. Overall, the dining experience at Khe Yo was superb. The dishes were super flavorful, and it was so much fun to share them with my companions. I can't wait to go back and try more of their offerings. If you're looking for a fantastic dining experience with a great selection of flavorful and shareable dishes, I highly recommend giving Khe Yo a try. You won't be disappointed!

    Overall the food was very good. The "beef jerky" small plate was the least favorite of what we ordered. It felt charred and burnt rather dehydrated and flavorful. But all of the other dishes (brussels sprouts, tuna laap, pork spring rolls, quail) were all very good with the tuna being the favorite. Some of the portions were a bit small for the price but the flavors were very good. Service was kind but felt a bit rushed. Music was a strange playlist of acoustic covers that was on a repetitive loop, so we heard the same songs 3 times each which though not a big deal, felt very strange.

    Way to loud so conversations were difficult. Hard to get attention of service staff… service was good only when they were clearing the table. Food was excellent and tasty. I would go back only if I could sit outdoors.

    I use to order lunch frequently from here. When I worked a few doors downs. It’s been awhile and the food is still delicious and spicy. We both had the Smashed Green Papaya Salad, Bamboo Ginger Quail and Sticky Rice & Sauces Sticky Rice with Bang-Bang & Eggplant Sauces. Soooo good. The only complaint is the papaya salad had too much carrots, not enough papaya. Our server was a little green. And came over too many times to see how we were doing. But very nice and professional. All in all I highly recommend and will certainly be back to try other dishes!!

    Great little place but stay away if you dont like spice! We had the papaya salad which I could barely eat. The quail small plate was very tasty but beware the sauce on the side. The shrimp dish with toast was excellent ..plenty of shrimp in a delightful sauce -perfect for the toast to absorb. For a very small place it was incredibly noisy but that seems to be the ambiance at every restaurant in the city. Luckily my husband and I know each other but it would be challenging if you were trying to have much of a conversation.

    The menu and food are delicious and balanced, we’ve eaten here many times. Management needs to do the staff and customers a favor and train everyone on the floor. They are all nice and enthusiastic, but lack all the basics. We had a good ten minutes of silence after being seated. No water, no greeting, then the drinks took 20 minutes. Then another 10 minutes before we were asked to order. We’ll keep eating here because it’s a favorite in the neighborhood but you need to help your employees with the basic understanding of their function in the experience. Thank you!

    My Tuna was excellent but the shrimp dish was tasteless, or rather the Shrimp was. The sauce was good but the shrimp was very bland. Drinks-nothing spectacular. Papaya salad was spicy (they warned us) but not excessively so. But nothing was spectacular about the flavor.

    We made a reservation for four but ended up a friend cancelled so it was three of us. It was the last day of restaurant week and we agreed to try the restaurant week menu. I selected Smoked Chili Glazed Duck Leg Confit Pickled Cucumber & Toasted Country Bread for the small plate/appetizer. It was a little hard for my taste but it is tasty. The large plate/entree I picked was Berkshire Pork Spare Ribs, Smashed Long Bean & Papaya Salad with Cherry Tomatoes. They specified that the restaurant week version does not include the rice. The ribs were good but I am not sure the regular version is a good value for $35 as stated in the menu. I went with the waitress' recommendation for the dessert: Toasted Coconut Gelato. I liked it. The three of us also ordered a bottle of the sparkling Rose. We enjoyed it. All in all, we had a fun time and the place had good food. U want to highlight that the servers were very accommodating. They asked a lot of questions to suit our needs and made very sensible recommendations. They do have good food, just think that they are a little pricy.

    My girlfriend and I went here for a quick lunch and were amazed by the cool atmosphere and tasty food. I had the lemongrass chicken protein bowl with the Fresh Rice Noodles with Sweet Carrot Sauce, Peanuts, Crispy Shallots, Bean Sprouts & Black Kale base and I was happily surprised of how well it went together. If we come back to NY were definitely stopping back for lunch! Also the service was great!
