    I come here regularly because I live nearby. It's great. Nice selection/variety on the menu. Great appetizers-dumplings, chive pancakes. Udon basil noodles and drunken noodles are my go to. Very tasty.

    The food was delicious! And we were placed at a somewhat out-of-the-way table, so that we could actually have a conversation. We all loved it!

    We arrived late but called ahead to let them know. They were very accommodating especially since it was a Friday night. Unfortunately we were in a rush because we had theatre tickets, but the food was delicious and the staff were friendly. The sweet and sour chicken was delicious as was the fried rice with crispy duck! YUM!

    Delicious meal at Thai 72. At 5pm the place opened and was quickly crowded (we luckily had a 5pm reservation so we could make it to our 7pm Beacon Theater show). Their menu is interesting and held some interesting appetizers, including scallion pancake (yummy) and crepe-like dumplings (delicious!), One of our entrees--a chicken ginger noodle dish that was really like a soup--was so underflavored that we asked for soy and peanut sauce to flavor it. Lots of chicken but a most tasteless broth. Our other dishes--a traditional Drunken Noodle entree and a fantastic Tom Yum soup (entree size) were so very tasty! Decent service and not too noisy.

    Fantastic food! This was a great find for a quick and delicious meal. Lots of vegetarian options. Loved the Drunken noodles. The green onion pancakes are not to be missed. I'd go back just for them. The flavors really shine, although the spice is very mild. Definitely on our list doe a return visit. Hifhky recommend.

    We had a delightful, delicious dinner at Thai72. It began with two very good cocktails from the Happy Hour offerings. The menu was quite extensive with some interesting and different signature dishes in addition to all of the usual Thai dishes. We choose the chicken curry lettuce wraps for a shared appetizer and two signature dishes: Chicken BBQ and Bangkok Jumbo Shrimp. Everything was beautifully presented and tasted as good as it looked! The service was friendly and efficient. In addition to the wonderful food, customer satisfaction is a very important component of the Thai72 dining experience. If we lived in Manhattan, we would certainly add Thai72 to our regularly visited restaurants.

    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.
