The service was very offhand—they seemed understaffed. As usual, apps were great but my main course was tepid, and the broccoli was clearly on its last legs. Also, the lunch special included salad or soup, neither of which I was offered! Disappointing compared to other meals at Thai 72.

Excellent food - the portions were BIG and the flavors spot on. We had the pork chops, crispy duck and curry shrimp - they were all expertly prepared. The service was great too (and totally unobtrusive). Highly recommended.

I’d researched Thai restaurants & chose Thai72 because of its reviews & they ACTUALLY USE CRAB in their Crab Rangoon. I had high hopes. We were not disappointed. The service was good, restaurant clean, noise level allowed the 4 of us in my party to easily converse & the food was OUTSTANDING! We WILL be back! The Crab Rangoon only disappointed in its smaller than usual size but it packed flavor & CRAB & was delicious. We also had summer rolls & curry puffs for appetizers. Everyone loved all 3 of the appetizers! I asked for a not on the menu, traditional green salad with ginger dressing — it was huge & as fresh as I could hope for, as were ALL the salads. Excellent freshly prepared, tasty food! One tip might be to alert patrons of “hot factor” on some dishes as a couple people had meals much spicer than expected & we’re all regular Thai food eaters. 5 ⭐️ from us!

We were looking for a fresh & light Asian fare and Thai 72 was the perfect fit. We sat outside in a very nice semi airy space. The waitress was very attentive & upbeat. The menu offered a great variety and we had the summer spring rolls- so light & tasty. Then we had a mango avocado salad split between me & my husband as it was a big portion. We finished with tofu delight & green spring vegetables. The sauces were so delicious. We each had a glass of wine & an iced tea. Our bill was so reasonable - we can’t wait to come back here. This is a hidden gem you won’t want to miss 👍

We really liked the ambience and my date loved the duck! We definitely will be coming back.

I appreciate the restaurant’s hospitality and patience while my guest arrived 15 min before the kitchen closed.

Still they did not cease to amaze me. The food was amazing!

The food was great—lots of variety and good prices. The drinks weren’t great..my friend sent her drink back twice because it wasn’t made correctly. I’d say stick to simple drinks or wine!

The food was delicious. It was a little noisier than we would have liked. But, every table was full, so I suppose it was to be expected. Would definitely go back.

Subpar overly sweet Thai food. Nice ambiance but staff lacks training. The whole experience felt Very sterile. Our entree’s came while we were still eating the appetizers and there wasn’t enough room on the table. One of the main dishes was cold and had to be redone which resulted in my wife eating for 15 min while I sat there with no food. Waitress didn’t apologize and never checked on us. Definitely would not return here.

The noise level was deafening. The tables are jammed up next to one another and it was near impossible to hear my dining companion. As a result, all customers were having to yell at each other to be heard. The food and service were very good, but the sound level made the overall experience totally unpleasant.

Thai72 deserves its good reviews. The ambiance was pleasant, the service was excellent, the food was mostly excellent (we've had better pad thai), and the prices were fair. This is a restaurant to seriously consider when visiting Lincoln Center; it is a 10-minute walk and is not crowded.

We love Thai food & have tried many local restaurants, food here is by far the best. We asked for hot & it was just how it should be, large portions too, took the extra home & had for lunch the next day & it tasted even better! This is definitely our go to choice from now on.

Thai 72 is my favorite Thai restaurant. I like spicy but not burning hot. Their green curry is just perfect! It is very reasonably priced but very nice ambiance for special occasions. I highly recommend if you are uws!
