    This place is the real deal! Come here to experience true authentic Thai flavors. You won't be going back to your neighborhood Thai place again. The fried chicken/shrimp dumplings are everything!!

    Best Thai food outside of Bangkok. The menu is huge & intimidating but take your time and rest assured your food will be delicious. Best items: Crispy Chinese watercress salad & veg/tofu Penang curry.

    The hype is real! Hands down the best Thai in all of NYC. Lunch special is of great value and everything tastes fresh/delicious plus comes out quickly. Salivate over the dessert menu!

    Come to Sripraphai for a chance to try Isan Thai cuisine. Dishes are spicy, sweet, and bold - you've been warned. Order the somtum, the khao soi, and the crispy watercress salad.

    Why? Spices are less muted & the herbs fresher than at most Thai restaurants. Boldly flavored dishes, try the sauteed "drunken'' noodles, the roasted duck salad, the pickled barbecued pork Read more

    Where do I start? SPP is hands down the best Thai in NYC. Try the sautéed duck in basil and Massaman curry. Larp is also fantastic. Buy the chili shrimp paste to go and put it on everything!

    We great spot that is tucked away, for cheap prices and amazing service. We love how reliable and delicious the food is. For you noodle lovers out there we recommend the Northern Style Curry noodles.

    Try the crispy Chinese watercress salad. The star green in this salad is lightly battered and deep-fried to gently temper its bitterness. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011. Read more

    Get the lunch special. $13.99 for a lot of food -- appetizer, soup, entree AND thai tea. So good! If you don't like spicy, get your food mild.

    This is the best Thai I have ever had ! The roasted dick salad was excellent but spicy!! Eyes watering and nose running hot! The chee-she shrimp was excellent ! Worth another visit !

    Everything, but the papaya salad is especially worth dying for. If you're not into crazy spice, be sure to ask how spicy the dishes are and ask them to tone it down. Otherwise, you'll burn.

    Great friggin food and the menu has such a huge selection even the pickiest of eaters will find something. Also bring cash unless you want to end up washing dishes because they don't take cards.

    I'm on the crispy watercress salad bandwagon. Also had the fried chicken and squid chili lime dumplings, which, if you like that flavor combo are incredible! Such an incredible dining experience!

    Forget pokpok. THIS is the best, authentic Thai food you can get in New York. Try the raw shrimp or a salad for something tangy and spicy.

    Best Thai Food in NYC and yeah I'm Thai. Try something that you can't get in normal American-Thai restaurants e.g. crispy catfish green mango salad, rice noodle with green curry, or any noodle soup.

    I'm gonna keep this tip simple & plain -- SriPraPhai is the best Thai food restaurant in NYC. Not ONE of the best. THE BEST. Great portions, great prices, unbelievable flavors. 'Nuff said.
  • Condé Nast Traveler
    When the summer nights are hot, there’s nothing better than dishes like fried snapper drowning in chili sauce or bowls of fiery green curry- the roasted duck salad alone may be worth the subway ride. Read more

    Ignore talk of "pilgrimages" & "worth the trip." The best ethnic food is always where immigrant folk actually live. Over 20 yrs old Sri has kept true to its flavors from when it was a hole in the wall

    Get the crispy watercress salad. It comes with a sweet and sour lime juice dip that has seafood, cilantro and chili sauce for a refreshing zing.

    The watercress salad, chicken & shrimp dumplings, pad thai, panang curry, drunken noodles, and Chinese broccoli with pork belly are delicious. I cannot vouch for anything else.

    Cash only. Glad this place is still going strong and walking distance from me. Great food, and the outdoor area with fountain out back are a great during the warmer months.

    Try a) Gang Tai Pla (Southern; spicy) b) Sautee sator (Southern; smelly) and c) Gang Liang (Central). As for fish, Thai people generally order it fried with no topping or steamed w/ chili & lime juice

    The crispy watercress salad is a good appetizer, and paired with a dish you will be stuffed, even if you share the appetizer. Note: "mild"= spicy and "spicy"= hardcore spicy

    Cheap, excellent Thai food in the heart of Queens. Flavors are delightful. Don't expect great customer service. Just go for the food. And be brave to try them all.

    As far out as the Eater 38 ventures. Worth the trip, given that this Thai food is considered to be the best in the five boroughs. If you don't know, now you know: see-PRA-pie. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Many consider it the city’s best Thai food for peanuts (most dishes on the mile-long menu are $10 or less). It’s even more wonderful that you can have it outdoors in a simple but pretty garden. Read more

    Loved the Khao soy. It's massive and I ate the leftover the very next night. I wish it lasted all week long. 😓

    The decor may be a bit off-putting at first, but you will only have eyes for the scrumptious food once it arrives. Love heat? Ask for the salads "Thai spicy." Like it mild? Duck noodle soup's for you!

    Best Thai! Be ready to wait on weekends & holidays; feed the meter. Cash only. Closed Wednesdays. A gawker's delight with great acoustics if you want to hear others' conversations.

    Best Thai in NYC. Pass on Papaya salad and go for the Crispy Ground Catfish. Not what you expect but it's a seriously flavorful dish, and highly addicting.

    Lovely garden. Drunken noodles were good. The chicken satay was dinner portion size. Scallion dumplings, papaya vegetation salad and curry puffs were also good.

    I'm Thai. This is the best Thai restaurant in NY. Get the fried catfish floss salad. Any curry you get will likely be the best you've ever had.

    GREAT foodddd! Believe all the hype about fried watercress salad and soft shell crab. But it may be a little too heavy of a meal if you order them together.
