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.
Pho is always pho sho
Excellent pho, perhaps best in manhattan
Pork belly appetizer is delicious! This is one of the more authentic viet/thai restaurants I've been to.
Get the Pad See Ew! They throw in some Korean flavor with the galbi and mango kimchi goodness! The pad thai is really good too with a yolky poached egg on top for you to mix around!
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.
Normally i am not a fan of "fusion" but this place was a pleasant surprise. Love their spicy calamari. The other dishes are great too esp the shrimp dishes
Pork belly must have! They also have bun bo hue and I've been craving this flavor for ages. Pho Bo up to standard. Nice staff.
Food is great. Service is not.
Thai fried rice for the win!!
$1 happy hour shots?! heck yes.
Fantastic happy hour, with $2 beers, $1 shots, $2 appetizers.
Pad see ew with a Korean twist: Galbi and Mango Kimchi! What! So good!
Pad see ew with green mango kimchi
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.
Steam Dumplings are topper and the Tom Yum Seafood Soup is excellent. Great Pho Bo!
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.
Basically random pick something in their menu and that would not be a bad choice. Suggest the catfish and pho.
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.
one of my favorite Vietnamese places in the city, been frequenting since 2010. cannot go wrong with the kalbi, pad see ew or pho
The duck is delicious here
The Crispy Pork Belly appetizer is delish. The cuts have enough fat to give it flavor but not too much to be overwhelming. The skin is nice and crispy.
The food is excellent here. Best fusion restaurant I've ever been to. Try the Green Tea Panna Cotta and the sticky rice topped with passion fruit ice cream (the latter was special) for dessert.
The Fried tofu here is freat. Great flavor with a touch of chili for heat.
I stumbled across this place one night when our original choice was closed. I am very thankful for that! One of the most delicious meals I have in a while. Worth checking out.
The curry catfish satay is to die for! Make sure you try it out!
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 !
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.
Pineapple fried rice is pretty good!
Taste great and healthy
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!
The food is great!
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.
Get the pho Bo & the Bun Bo hue
Ottimo Thai. Consiglio Singapore Noodles.
