Thai72 was a great dining experience. The menu was quite varied for a Thai restaurant, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the service was prompt and non-intrusive. We were there early in the evening so it was very quiet and personal. The decor is clean and crisp with a classy touch of Thai! We had a delicious meal that was prepared to our liking. We will visit again!

Very nice place....attentive and friendly service. Had early reservation for a pre-show meal. We had the 5-Star Dumplings and Soft Summer Rolls to start.........dumplings outstanding, loved the sauce for the Summer Rolls which were tasty as well. For dinner my wife had a Calamari/Curry special that she said was outstanding. I went simple, pineapple fried rice with chicken. The rice was cooked perfectly with a great taste including tender chicken. We had a couple of drinks and a great time. Would definitely go back and recommend to others. As a side note they seemed to be doing a huge delivery business if you can't make it there in person.

Please note that our reservation was for a prime time on a Friday night in New York City.

Even with an 8:00 reservation we were not seated for fifteen minutes, not that bad, however the host station near the door got to be very crowded (but it was a Friday night).

We had a good table and attentive staff. Orders for drinks were quickly in front of us. One member of our group lives in LA and found the menu to be more expansive than Thai restaurants in LA.

Appetizers arrived quickly and we vacuumed them up. The main courses were nicely plated and tasty.

One of our party lives in the neighborhood, and didn't know of Thai72, he will be coming back.

This is a great Thai spot. They have a lunch special ($12+) including on weekends where you get an appetizer, soup or salad, and a main dish. The dishes are still large. Everything I have tried here is delicious!

I’ve been here many times but this is the first time that we had to wait fir our table even though we had a reservation. Understandable since this place is always filled and the food is outstanding, The servers are attentive and charming. Done if our favorite appetizers are the chive pancakes, pork skewers and the duck crepes! Leftovers of our entrees were easily warmed in the microwave. Can’t wait till the next time!

Our meal was fine and service was quick and attentive. The restaurant was conducive to conversation - not noisy at all - and the staff got us out in time to get to our Lincoln Center show. Extensive menu, with all the American Thai restaurant favorites and some unexpected specials.

Great variety of foods... best bets are the classiic Thai dishes. Apetizers very good, especially the dumplings and lettuce wraps. Only dish would not recommend is the fried snapper. Soups, braised port and pad tai were all great. Vegan member of our group was very happy with the many menu possibilities.

It was a great dining experience for a cold, windy afternoon to be in a cozy and relaxing restaurant like Thai 72.
The food was tasty and flavorful.
We requested for warm water instead of cold water since my throat was bad, but the waitress refused and I thought that was strange. She insisted that I ordered tea to have warm water.

I thought the pad Thai was pretty standard, not too sweet as some others have commented. The wait staff were pretty brisk but not in a rude way, and they were kind enough to let our group of 4 linger after we paid our bill — it was a Friday night but there were some tables open so not too crazy!
