Very tasty, very reasonably priced.

We were running late due to traffic/parking and they called to see if we were still coming. Then they asked how ling we'd take and if they should hold our table. We were about 30 mins late and they got a seated right away -- that was super nice and much appreciated!

Every time guest would come in we would get a chill burst of air. I suggest to add a curtain to keep off the cold air from the door opening

We had tickets to a show at Lincoln center so we wanted a restaurant in the area. It had gotten great reviews so we decided to try. It did not disappoint. The food was amazing. It was a great neighborhood restaurant.

The food her was all fabulous and the service was attentive. We tried many of the vast menu of appetizers, which was like eating our thai food Tapas style! The wings, spring rolls, lettuce wraps, mussels were all excellently paired with delightful sauces. We also had a massaman curry which was nicely done. All in all delicious and staff was very attentive. Be sure to try the spicy lychee martini, you might want to ask for NO jalapeños which are diced very finely and add a nice kick but can be unpleasant surprise if you aren't expecting them. ;-)

I'd never heard of Thai72 before but was immediately charmed by the ambiance - there's a spinning water wheel in the back. Who doesn't love a water wheel? The food was light and tasty and well-seasoned. I didn't expect much from the dessert - who orders dessert at a Thai restaurant? - but my mom wanted chocolate, so we ordered a brownie with ice cream. Let me say - that was one of the best brownies I've ever had! Warm and fudgy, not too sweet - it tasted homemade. And the price was quite reasonable, too. I will definitely be going back there again and will bring friends and family!

Lovely restaurant with a beautiful water feature. The ambience was great, very relaxing. The food was prepared beautifully, and was quite good. We had a lovely papaya salad (terrific), Pad Thai, and an entire fish!
We would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes Thai food.

It’s amazing how when I specifically said this was a reservation for a birthday, and we arrived early as a courtesy they managed to seat us in the worst table in the whole restaurant, right in front of the drafty front door, when there were plenty of tables empty in the back room for the entirety of our time in the restaurant. This table was seated in a cramped spot behind the host station and the metal beam was constantly jabbing me anytime I moved in my seat. Very uncomfortable experience.

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!
