Bringing you a unique twist on Thai and Vietnamese comfort foods, OBAO bridges the gap from the streets of Southeast Asia to the streets of New York City.
i'm in love. the bun bo hue was more than legit. Bangkok chicken is a tasty KISS type of dish.
The beef spare ribs on sugar cane skewers are pretty dope
Mediocre service and food. Pho bo was too salty. Just worth coming for happy hour.
The pho is okay. What's really worth getting is the shrimp pad pad thai. So nutty and delicious!
The shrimp pad thai is one of the best in Manhattan!
Delicious! I recommend the Michellin foods
Pho is really good here!
Awesome pad see ew. Awesome pad ki Mao.
Pho good. gr8 broth. Good early bird special 4-6:30pm
Pad sew ew was scrumptious. Kimchi fries were delicious. Chiang mai noodles is really tasty!
Pad Kee Mao > Pad See Ew > Pad Thai
Decent but I can't jump on the bandwagon here.
Really amazing pork belly and veggie dumplings were awesome !
The spicy lemongrass broth is really good. Put half of your spice in and give it a taste first because it can get very spicy.
Come on a cold day for the lunch deal- add a steamed dumpling or spring roll, both solid choices. One of the better tasting Pho Bo places in Manhattan.
Get the pho Bo & the Bun Bo hue
Pineapple fried rice is pretty good!
Taste great and healthy
Steam Dumplings are topper and the Tom Yum Seafood Soup is excellent. Great Pho Bo!
Lemon Grass Short Ribs are EPIC! Perfect blend of flavors and spice
Way too sweet. Might be good Thai for New York, but for a guy from Sydney who knows his way around holy basil this was not my cup of tea and really made me miss home.
Pork belly == yummy!
The best pork belly in the entire world!
Get booth in bk of this hip & zen SE Asian. My faves: Clay pot shrimp, crispy spring rolls, spare ribs on sugar cane, hand cut daikon cake, & Chinese broccoli. FiDi & HK offshoots are just as cool!
Super super good lunch specials. A heaping amount of food plus really cheap alcoholic/nonalcoholic drinks. I haven't found a bad meal on the menu.
The food is great!
Carbs carbs and more carbs. If your down for that, you've come to the perfect place to stuff to' face. Pineapple fried rice was yummy.
Deceivingly roomy! Can easily seat a party of 8. Food is good too!
Surprised no one here has mentioned the laksa, cuz it is awesome
Great spring rolls, shrimp thai pad and ginger chicken. The service was excellent!
People tend to overhype this place a lot. Come here neutral minded and you'll experience great food. Come with high expectations and you just might think it's average.
Ottimo Thai. Consiglio Singapore Noodles.
There's a $15 credit card minimum.
Best pad thai according to roommate
Looking for something different and tasty? Get 2 orders of the pork belly appetizer for sublime slabs of mouth watering pork.
Delightful meat dishes with a BBQ touch to everything.
Avoid Singapore lasak, it's served with soba noodle
Lunch special till 4 pm
Spicy kalbi was so good!
Do get the short ribs and the pork belly. They have an early birds prix fix for 11$ that includes an appetizer, entree and drink. Solid stop in midtown east.
The lemongrass BBQ short ribs are AMAZING.
Good Pho Bo. Cool thai spot in midtown. Extremely busy for lunch.
Muy buena comida.. precio solidario
The last soup noodle in the menu! Mmmmm yummy
Basically random pick something in their menu and that would not be a bad choice. Suggest the catfish and pho.
OMG everything here was amazing, from the Vietnamese coffee to the chicken satay to the pho. Probably the best dumplings I've ever eaten, even better than Mandoo Bar. Pad see iew is to die for.
Bun bo hue is not for people who does not like strong herbs.Beef panang could be too spicy for people who have moderate spicy tolerance. The golden wings and lemongrass kalbi short ribs is very delish
One of the best lunch deals in Midtown (even on weekends). Go for the Pho Bo ($8) to heat you up on a cold day. Ask for extra noodles and make it two meals.
All night happy hour until close Mondays through Wednesdays!! Amazing! $5 cocktails
