    Poached salmon in a skillet with vegetables and sticky rice $22. Appetizer sampler is the right amount of 4 between 2 for $22. Book ahead.

    Food was tasty, service was slow. Good came with egg, which I asked not to have. They forgot the fries we ordered. Loud but I expected that.

    Love that their Pad Kee Mao's spicy level is on par with Thai-spice. Spicy level is no joke. They add really good vegetables like king oysters and fresh peppercorn.

    The food is absolutely delicious and top notch. Place sometimes is a bit crowded, noisy and subpar in maintenance.

    Pad Thai was great! Comes with chili powder though and I hate spicy food so I'll just ask for no chili powder next time

    The appetizers are really good. If you want spicy then make sure you get the Thai spicy. Other levels are pretty mild.

    Thai burger. Fries. Amazing! Want to try drunken noodles!

    Came here for lunch and had green curry, food was flavorful but tasted tons of additives. No salad for lunch special :/

    It is a shame but the lobster dumpling entree loses its charm when it is drowned in yellow curry. Not a dish I'd recommend given that it is the most expensive one on the menu.

    Pad Thai is delicious. Small portion made me wonder how small are their small dishes? In any case DON'T set at the bar you'll be forgotten. I probably won't come back.

    The food is delicious but better for delivery/takeout since the entire staff from the host to servers seem rude and stressed out/overworked/unhappy, and uninspired by the amazing menu.

    Avoid things you'd get at a basic thai place i.e chicken curry (small portion, nothing special). Go for papaya or zuc pad thai, kale/enoki salad, grilled calamari. kabocha fries are OK not amaze

    If you are looking for Thai for a healthier twist, this is the place. But I'm more for the traditional, greasy yet super fragrant Thai dishes in hole in a wall kind of places.

    Anglicized fun Thai food for the NYUers. Reasonably priced and pretty tasty but not particularly authentic. Chiang Mai fries are tasty but not at all fries. Skip the a watermelon slaw & weak cocktails
