    Their entrance is really nice. I thought I was walking into a Tao restaurant.

    Excellent quality food that reminds me of what I've had in Thailand. They also have nice $5 happy hour drink specials. Very nice decor too.

    Terrible. Both the pad Thai and pad see ew were over sauced and gloopy. The see ew was so sweet it was inedible.

    Like this place. Modern look and similar feel to other trendy 9th Ave spots. Food is ok, servers are handsome. Papaya salad is fresh and tangy, but fried tofu was dry, green curry not spicy enough.

    Friendly staff and good food. A bit too night-clubby for me, though.

    Quite trendy Thai Restaurant and Bar. Food was excellent and the portions are big. If you're alone you might want to skip the appetizer or you'll feel very stuffed after the main course.

    Try the Khao Soi, the Burmese influenced signature dish of Chiang Mai - Northern Thai egg noodles in a rich curry broth, chicken, shrimp, red onions & dried shallots, topped with crispy noodles.
  • Jeanette R.
    The massaman was delicious!

    Tired of curries or noodle dishes? Order another authentic Thai dish: Pad Ka-Na with Crispy Pork. Ask for sticky rice to soak up the flavors.

    You must order the delicious Chiang Mai sausage appetizer with its galangal and lemon grass flavors. The uber hip Pok Pok sells these for twice the price & for half as much.

    For a hearty appetizer, order the BBQ Short Ribs. The ribs are marinated in an Asian sauce and not BBQ sauce from the Kraft sense of the word.

    I'm not sure why crab rangoon is on the menu since it is an American invention from Trader Vics. The dead giveaway is the cream cheese. Try and find cheese in any real Southeast Asian or Chinese dish.

    Very authentic Thai dishes at one of the best in NYC. Even the decor transports you and makes you feel like you are in a club on Sukhumvit Road in Bangkok. (they can be forgiven for the crab rangoon.)

    There are few NYC restaurants that rise above Americanized curry & Pad Thai offerings. ViV is one of them. Not only authentic, but they serve Chiang Mai dishes & you don't have to pay Pok Pok prices.

    There are a lot of Thai places in NYC; but V{IV} is the best. Northern Thai food dishes differentiates then from other Thai places in the city. Never had a bad meal here.

    The Pad Thai was great until I found a HAIR in it! When I brought it to their attention, they didn't even offer to compensate. Needless to say, I lost my appetite. Tip: Be careful of HAIR in food.
