This place is great. The pad thai bolan was outstanding. However, everything else I ordered could have been better. Excellent atmosphere.

The food was great. Excellent preparation, presentation and taste. Service was both friendly and efficient. I loved the fiberglass partitions. Add to the sad term and the ambience. Overall, I highly recommend.

Enjoyed the red curry and it was vibrant with balanced thai spices and just a touch of spice. Safe and spacious setup with COVID outdoor seating. Would absolutely return.

Our favourite restaurant, especially for the lunch time special which is great value. Wide noodles my favourite spicy & delicious, took friends today...so they now have 2 new fans! Don’t hesitate to try this, best Thai food in the area by far.

Their menu options are exceptional, and we have yet to find an item we haven't loved. They can make food extremely spicy if you want, but have plenty of classic Thai foods that don't rely on heat. Their beverage selection is also very good from what we've tried, and we look forward to trying more. Favorite Thai spot, and one of our favorite spots, period, in the area.

I had the Kao Soy with shrimp and it so so delicious. I would highly recommend. I had the mild and t was very spicy so be careful if you don't like spicy. The only drawback is I went with a friend who was handicapped and she had a hard time getting up the ramp entrance and we had to eat at the bar because there were stairs to the table. Something to keep in mind

When we arrived, there was a sign on the door “closed 3:45-5:30” and was denied entry. We stated that we had confirmed reservations. As the host was ushering another couple out, she pointed to the sign on the door. While we were not upset, we were confused and disappointed. We heard that the food is excellent so we may try again...before 3:30

I find it impossible — now on a number a visits — to order anything but the braised beef. It is delicious. But I wouldn’t be surprised if pleasures lie elsewhere on the menu as well.

Happily accommodated my last minute reservation change from 5 people to 16 people. Helped me to put together the perfect menu for my group (we ate family style). My party was almost entirely made up with Thai people and they all loved the food (they do not fool around when it comes to food!) Hostess was extraordinarily polite and helpful. Last but not least, the wait staff was tremendous. Everyone felt taken care of. This is a really well run restaurant. I coul not have asked for a better birthday experience. Highly recommended.

We went for first time because of reviews. What a disappointment. Pad Thai was like glue; curry puffs like potato-flavored wall board. Spice "fire" levels were all the same regardless of request. Presentation was appealing, and house-made lemonade mocktail was refreshing, but way overpriced at every level of the menu. Many better on UWS, especially north of 96th St.
