    Everything was delicious from saki to dessert. Really enjoyed the onion pancakes as well as the drunken noodles we got the appetizer platter that had a little bit of everything and that was delicious and my friends both got different soups with curry and love them. Definitely going back.

    I thought this was a great spot to meet up with a friend. I enjoyed the ambiance and the food was quite good! It was the best Pad Thai I had in a very long time. If I was local to NYC, I’d make this my go-to place for takeout. Perhaps it’s a couple dollars more than I’d usually pay but it’s worth it for the quality and portion size. Only tiny downside is that I wished the crab rangoons were a little bigger — but they were really tasty!

    Thai72 is a neighborhood gem. The staff is uniformly welcoming, friendly, helpful, and service is better than in so many places. They have a limited bar menu, but their spicy lychee martini is a WINNER! One is not enough!!! I dined with 2 others so we had a variety of options on our table. Everything was fresh, tasty, and nicely served. Nobody rushed us out, so we we able to enjoy our time together. Thanks to everyone at Thai72. We'll be back!

    Best place in NYC for Thai food. The food is delicious from appetizer down to dessert. Service is friendly and professional. They don’t rush you between courses which is a pet peeve of ours. Restaurant is clean. I stumbled across this gem years ago and had to come back.

    A birthday dinner prior to a concert at The Beacon. Not the first time I’ve been there, and I always look forward to returning. The food is consistently great. Highly recommend the scallion pancakes appetizer, just delicious. Pad Thai was flavorful, Drunken Noodles even tastier! And the service is terrific. Highly recommend Thai 72!

    Four of us ordered a total of about 8 appetizers plus Pad Thai. We all loved almost every dish. At least 2 of us liked the 2 dishes that weren’t universally loved. We’re going back with another friend tomorrow. It was pretty loud, but somehow we were OK with it.

    Food as always was excellent! However the noise level was quite high; perhaps there are some noise abatement steps that could be taken. The servers are quite polite and meals come very quickly. However for the third time we had asked for two checks versus one and we’re told that that would be accommodated but when the check came it was just one check. So for some reason there seems to be a breakdown in communication. Overall we would highly recommend this restaurant.
