    Do not get put off by the tiny space and line. The food here is SO worth it. Get the pad thai, the curry puffs, the steamed buns, get everything. Service is incredibly efficient and quick.

    Chicken curry puffs are great,Pad Thai was ok, chili turmeric beef was delicious but I wish the taste of the lime leaf isn't that strong.Waiting time could take up to 30 mins, but the service is fast.

    Crab noodles is delicious. Homemade egg noodles and a bit soury sauce that's delicious. Prices are very reasonable but wait is typically very long because the restaurant is small

    One of the better Thai restaurants on 9th Avenue. Recommend the papaya salad - medium spicy gets you a nice bit of heat. Rest of dishes are fresh and flavorful. Plan to queue up to get a seat.

    First time here but I’ll be back. Quick, friendly service. Nice atmosphere. Pad see ew with beef is a touch sweet but delicious and nice ratio of beef and broccoli to noodles.

    Their Kao soi is solid and a nice compliment to the crab & pork dry noodles. There’s a wait even on snow days. Come during off peak (afternoon) to avoid wait!

    Other than the peppers in the papaya salad being extremely hot, it was very good. I also enjoyed the mixed appetizers, which includes curry puffs, curry dumplings, and spring rolls.

    Excellent option for hungry, ramen-weary folks near Lincoln Center. Cozy & snug at times, but the food is more than worth a few bump-ins. Great character, great spices & great for repeat visits.

    Excellent & very authentic Thai, not the usual Isaan or Bangkok style fare found in NYC. Particularly enjoyed the turmeric beef & the fresh herbs in all the dishes, particularly the salads.

    Still the go destination for street Thai food in Manhattan. In winter, noodle soup is hearty and warm try though easy to OD on carbs

    Top 3 Thai food in NYC and great value. Sukhothai Pork Noodles Soup and Wok Chili Tumeric with Beef are both fantastic.

    Definitely get the pork noodle soup. The papaya salad is good too. Authentic and the best. But don't get pad thai. I think its their worst dish..(lol) get it in a less authentic place.

    Good food small space. We were able to walk in during lunch rush on a Saturday so don’t skip it thinking it’ll be too crowded. Only negative is I wish the portion I had was bigger!

    Pad Kee Moa, steamed 🥟 ‘s, pork buns, and pad Thai. Can’t go wrong with this place. Great Thai food. There is always a wait though. Beware.

    Incredible food. As good or better as food we had in Thailand. Get the pad see eew or any noodle dish. Noodles are so fresh. Worth the wait & can't wait to go back again soon.

    Order the ribs, curry puff and papaya salad for appetizers. Pork and crab noodle is great and so does the sukhotai noodle. Pad see euw beef is tasty. Close it with mango sticky rice! Nyammm

    Everything is great. The sake that comes in a can is great. The ginger curry calamari is great. The pad see ew is...also great. And the mango sticky rice dessert- freaking great.

    The spicy beef salad is SO SPICY (but so good). The ratchaburi crab and pork dry noodles are also quite good.

    Get their signature pork and crab noodle soup - but with soup on the side and vermicelli noodles instead! You won't regret it!

    Our waiter was very considerate, he even provided us with a service cup of Thai iced tea, which was delicious. Their original thai beer Singha was a great choice. Lovely place.

    Eater: noodles such as the crab and pork noodles, or Nakhon-Pathom duck noodle soup. Curry puffs are the best in town, and the raw crab version of green papaya salad is a revelation not for the timid.

    For appetizers the chicken curry puffs and the steamed beef buns. The nakorn-Patom duck noodles soup is superb, lots of flavor. I found the crab and pork dry noodles too plain in comparison.

    Great authentic food but watch the spicy level, they make it really hot if you want it hot. Get the shrimp and calamari salad! Perfectly grilled!

    Hands down best Thai in NYC. Michelin star worthy based on flavor alone. Affordable and everything is delicious. Can get cramped during peak times.

    One of my fav Thai places in the city. The spices and flavors are balanced. Team your dish with the coconut juice and everything will sit well in your tummy.

    Divine - Duck Noodles & Shrimp and Calamari Herb Salad were out of this world. The Ratchaburi Noodles were good too, but a bit overhyped.

    This is the best Thai resto on Ninth Ave. Definitely try the Ratchaburi Noodles with crab and pork. I prefer it with soup, but it's great dry as well. Also, try the Chicken Curry Puffs!

    Had the jungle curry fried rice: rice was mushy (not crunchy like supposed), spiciness was taste overpowering. Som tam was great, like in northern Thailand. Music very loud, but Thai-pop ought to be.

    We waited about 30 minutes to have a seat... always a good sign when a place is crowed in New York! My duck soup was good, but I recommend you order something safe like the pad thai or pad see-uh!

    It's a pretty small restaurant, but the food is great. I recommend the Jungle Fried Rice, it's a medium spicy dish and it's very delicious. Have it with some Thai Iced Tea.

    Wok chili pepper with chicken and spicy grilled beef salad were excellent. Dressing on the salad had a nice sweet and sour bite going on.
