    I ordered vegetarian duck with basil sauce. Although it's a little salty and spicy, it's very delicious. If you have a big group, ask the waiter to let you sit upstairs, where is spacious and quiet.

    Skip the pumpkin red curry. Stick with the recommended dishes indicated on the menu.

    Decent food at low prices, but extremely slow service on a fairly quiet Sunday night. Worth keeping in mind if you're in any rush.

    Fried calamari

    Ordered the fried calamari and the pad kee mao. The calamari was served piping hot and was fried to perfection. The pad kee mao was very well seasoned.

    Green curry was too watery

    Food is not that great, but they usually have tables when other places nearby are busy. Don't get the Jungle curry - get the Massaman, Rendang or Pad See Eil instead. It is however, cheap.

    Don't miss the crab fried rice or the yum crispy duck. Ever.

    Came based on good things I heard about the oxtail soup. Maybe it was a bad batch but I was extremely disappointed. Much too fatty and the smell was awful. I felt so bad for leaving half of it.

    Cheap booze.

    Loud as hell on a busy night, but the line is shorter than other nearby Thai joints and food is authentic.

    Good larb. Decent curries.

    Nick Runyan · November 6, 2014
  • Nancy H.

    Pad thai and pad kee mao. Great flavors, although on the saltier side, and really hit the spot.

    Fresh thai food.. Veggie eggplant was good without too much sauce or salt, som tum also quite fresh without overpowering fish sauce salty taste. But not as spicy as I like.

    This place is past it's prime, Ox Tail soup was not great.

    Joshua Girard · September 21, 2014

    Pad kee mao.

    Best home cooking I've had in New York. No frills here, but the food is on point. Panang curry. tom yum koong, and Thai beef jerky are my go-tos

    Brook Frazier · August 30, 2014

    Once this was the best thai in Manhattan but it has long since been eclipsed by Zabb Elee, Larb Ubol, Somtum Der and others. Still, good for some unusual dishes (khao soi, anchovy rice)

    No joke. Waited over an hour for food because they were busy serving gone large party upstairs and take out orders. Multiple parties left while we waited...

    At Pam's, where sharp sour, salty, and fishy flavors are promulgated. Noodle dishes and yum are particularly recommended, as is duck with chile sauce. Read more

    You could skip this place. Ordered chix pad thai for lunch - got stale chewy flavour less noodles.

    Oxtail soup! Delicious for the winter time. Tangy and spicy.

    Julia M · January 16, 2014
  • Joel G.

    Come with a friend and split the Pad See Eil and the Kao Soi. Don't forget the Thai Iced Tea!

    They had me at crispy pork with brocolli and the Ox tail soup. They are amazing.

    Oxtail Soup: "This is the real deal. Herbs, chilis, fish sauce, tamarind, lime, and crispy fried shallots liven up the intense beef broth." Read more

    BuzzFeed says: "Oxtail soup for $11.99...truly spicy, exciting Thai food can be hard to find in Manhattan, but this is the real deal. Herbs, chilis, fish sauce, tamarind, lime etc."

    Amazing Thai. Best in HK.

    I'm a huge-ass Thai fan and when I say the curry puffs here are little fried drops of heaven U take my word for it. Padthai is good too. A bit to the sweeter side. Thai iced coffee is super chill.

    Sanjyot · October 3, 2013
  • Francis U.

    Very good food. I had one of the crispy duck dishes very unique and tasty although i thought the sauce was too watery. Massaman curry was also very good but on the sweeter side.

    jenny z · September 20, 2013

    Delicious, extremely fair prices, no decor - come for the tastes, not the scene

    Solid Thai for around $10. They take cards now too.

    Patrick Kanaley · September 17, 2013

    The ox tail soup is the best soup in the world, especially when its cold out. I still dream of it.

    Got the Tom Kha Noodle which was a sweet and mild creamy coconut milk chicken noodle soup. Their Pad Thai is different from what I'm used to but still good. The Pad See Eil looked delicious.

  • Eddie M.

    Tasty! Order the duck and the Pad Lee Mao.

    Richard Pelzer · July 22, 2013
  • Erika N.

    Seriously good, really authentic Thai, with menu options you won't find anywhere else in the city. And ignore the other tips: they DO accept credit cards, not cash only.

    Erika Nonken · July 11, 2013
  • Sophia K.

    Go straight for oxtail soup. Look no more. Recommended by a Thai foodie as one of the most authentic Thai in city.

    Sophia Kang · June 25, 2013
  • Serious Eats

    Not the best Thai food in the city but they do a decent rendition of the Northern Thai specialty khao soi.

    Serious Eats · April 11, 2013

    Some of the best Thai in the city - and they finally take cards!

    The papaya salad is quite nice, pork in basil not so much
