    Start with the Roti Telur and the Dumpling Fritters, followed with the Chili Crab and Char Kueh Teow (add shrimp!) - the most delicious meal and great date spot

    Not sure why this place has such a high rating. The food, service and ambience were all below average.

    Spiked Thai iced tea and a damn good menu! I've had a majority of appetizers and they do not disappoint. If you're looking for something spicy, make sure they know.

    Best belachan kang kung in the city. Nasi lemak was smaller than usual but still good. Ginger lemon martini is yummy, too.

    One of the few really quality Malaysian restaurants, featuring curries, sandwiches, noodle dishes, good imported beer, and drinks. Desert should boot be missed here either. Sweet coconut rice.

  • Belle H.

    Favorite Malaysian-Thai restaurant around union square. Roti canai is a must. Expand your palate and try the Malaysian curry served with squid, okra, eggplant and tomatoes in spicy yellow coconut milk

    Belle Huang · March 6
  • Giovanni D.

    Not a bad spot for a quick Thai lunch. If you like spice be sure to ask for it because they don't make there meals hot.

    Roti Canai is a must. Drunk man noodles were great but I like a little more spice

    Love their roti canai and coconut juice. Lunch special is great. Tried veggie tom yum soup. Veg spring rolls okay. Massaman curry was great. Get reservations if going for lunch.

  • Ms H.

    Nyonya vegetables were fresh & crispy but best with sriracha, $13 with white or brown rice. Red curry was medium spicy with tofu and eggplant, $13. Both recommended for a quick meal pre movies.

  • Meg L.

    Best Thai food in NYC! The Drunk Man is incredible. Staff is very friendly and the food comes out very fast!

    Curry Laska was amazing! I love eating spicy but usually cannot handle it! But this was amazing and just the right amount of heat for me! Nice comfortable environment for dinner with old friends.

    This place is horrible. Never been treated worse at a restaurant. Please do not support them ever!

    The curry laksa with fried wonton and egg round noodles is a personal favorite

    Really delicious food but super rude service. I don't appreciate pushy people who are practically ready to sit new people at your table while you're eating.

    Tom Kha veggie soup is my staple pickup item. Yum

    The best Thai food I've ate in manhattan!!

    Sagy Miranda · April 18, 2014
  • Justin W.

    The beef rendang was amazing. The sambal dishes also. The Roti Jala wasn't so good as the roti was more of a lattice and hard to handle. The tofu skewer also not a great choice as Deep fried tofu

  • Priyanka P.

    Free shrimp puffs when you check into foursquare as a newbie. You get only the appetizer or the dessert so choose wisely!

    Coconut cheesecake is champion.

    Our server was the most enthusiastic waiter I've ever encountered. Ha. He was very funny and sweet. The Massaman Curry was very good. Overall good experience!

    This restaurant made me think of my amazing meals in Malaysia (but not because the food was good here).
