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.

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.

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.
