    Great ambiance. Authentic thai food. I ordered the BBQ rib and it is enough for one person. I recommend massaman curry for curry lovers.

    was a little hot not sure a/c was working that contributed. Food was good not outstanding although i really liked the short rib dish that my wife ordered. I ordered the roast pork bun - was crispy but only 2 buns not much of an appetizer. The basil thai noodles i ordered were supposed to be "extremely spicy" - not even close! but overall a nice atmosphere and very friendly staff.

    There wasn’t any air conditioning!!!!! We asked several times and they assured us they just turned it on. So we ordered “Happy Hours” hors d’oeuvres. I wish I had taken a picture of what arrived because a picture is worth 1000 words. To sum it up the appetizers were four dollars each so we ordered two of everything and it came on two tiny skinny plates. The tuna taco was the size of your thumb with diced day old specks of tuna. After being there for an hour and being told the air conditioning was going to kick in any minute we decided to move on. What a ripoff and being taken for a fool as we are all sweating is is not good business!! NYC is so awesome with so many amazing restaurants. Try a better spot with great food.

    Enjoying an amazing dinner and drink at Nuua, Thai cuisine, which means tasty and delicious. This Michelin plate award winning establishment is well worth a cost if you’re ever on the Upper East Side and in the mood for Thai cuisine. Lychee martini, Tom yum, 44 hour marinaded cornish hen with sticky rice, brussels sprout, eggplant caviar bam prik and finished off with passion fruit sorbet

    First thing I noticed when I walked in was the beautiful decor. I ordered the spicy basil noodle which was very delicious and the portion was perfect for me. The passion fruit sorbet was also great and very refreshing. Friendly service as well. I had an awesome experience overall.
