    The food was tasty, we really enjoyed the Gai Rad Preeg and a noodle dish. If you like spice ask for the spice rack, it has a few different spice flavors to add in. Staff was really nice and prompt.

    Som tom & Pad see eww are my goto Thai dishes and these tasted just the way i like. Thai Orchid martini was delish! I love creme brûlée, and theirs tasted good, but had lychee bits IN it = odd texture

    This joint has some amazing calamari. Simple tempura batter, lightly fried, and not tough to chew. Paired with a sweet plum sauce thats out of this world. Coconut sticky rice with mango is too die for

    Start with the peanut dumplings. "Gra Prow Kai Dow" was very tasty but also spicy. "Gai Rad Preeg" is a delicious sweet and spicy choice with lots of flavor. Get the Fried Ice Cream.

    The gai rad preeg, of mysterious origin and provenance, is addictive and delicious--chicken cut into strips and then stir-fried in a fiery tamarind-and-ginger sauce, served with bok choy and rice.

    A casual lunch place with both tradition and exotic dishes. We love the Bangkok street market-themed setting and go crazy for the curry puffs! They are so delicious.

    Great lunch special. Thai dumpling appetizer was good. Chicken pad Thai was amazing. Best I've ever had. Thai iced tea for the thirst of course. Good place.

    Kow Soy is the best thing you never knew you were missing, second only to the Kui Teiw Kua Ped. Wash away your shame with Thai Iced Tea. Check take-out orders carefully - they tend to forget things.

    Most wonderfully seasoned skirt steak I've ever had! Marinated in chili garlic puree and served with green tea sticky rice + perfectly sauteed vegetables. A must try!

    A good selection of two-course lunch specials is available for $8 (before tax and gratuity) between noon and 3:30 pm everyday, including weekend.

    Hard to find good Thai in NYC, but they do it right here. Vegetarians beware: many dishes and soups have fish sauce or chicken stock. Ask for them to make without.

    The hustle and bustle of a Chiangmai eatery. Great vibe, service and food. Loved the dumplings.

    Decorated like a Southeast Asian market this place has the quirk of one too - Here that means food far hotter, sauces more tart and even portions more generous.

    Ask special menu 'pineapple fried rice!' It is really awesome! And flat spice noodle! :)

    Pad Thai is really fantastic. Appetizers are cheap, plentiful and good. Awesome Thai and worth the trip to 107.

    It's unbelievably popular, especially with the Columbia crowd. So, it lacks a good selection of drinks, but you can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

    More than decent Thai for the neighborhood, even if it falls short of hardcore authenticity.

    Among the best pad thai I've had in the city. Not too sweet or saucy, with just the right of peanut.

    This place is so overrated. Talking about quality, I guess with this price you just can't get any? Taste was ok, but ingredients were just horrible. Won't come again, maybe for Thai ice tea..........

    I can vouch for the pad thai, green curry and panaeng. Thai Market could easily be mistaken for a restaurant in Pai.

    Una gran alternativa en el Upper West Side para comer comida tailandesa muy rica, a precios razonables y en un gran ambiente. Los langostinos picantes con ananá son todo.
