"Zabb Elee" is a Thai saying used when a dish is extremely spicy (always in a good way)
Winner of Best Use of Blood in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! The nam tok is a savory soup that makes amazing use of pigs blood for flavor.
Pad Ped Moo Korb for something hot. Larb Ped for something cool. Brace yourself for something amazing.
The Isan Thai fare here isn't as good as it used to be, but it's still some of our favorite in Manhattan.
Not sure why ppl say they have bad service, but I've been here multiple times and they're always super nice, attentive and helpful. Best Tom Yum soup ever.
Kao Moo Dang: sweet glazed pork and sausage with rice, hard boiled egg, and cucumber. The trick is to cut up the egg and cucumber. Mix it up a bit. Pour a little sweet glaze over it all and chow down!
Larb Gai is super tasty - best I've had in Manhattan.
Medium spicy is pretty damn spicy
Regional (northeast) Thai food. Best pork-liver larb in Manhattan! The sticky rice is traditional in northeast Thailand.
Best crispy pork with basil ever.
One of the few completely undiscovered gems left on the east side
Amazing steamed shrimp. Great staff as well
Food was extra salty :(
You can't come here and not get the Papaya salad to start! Pukk Boong Fai Dang and Moo Tod Kratiem are super flavorful dishes.
No Americanized BS here. Yes that means no mild curries, no sweetish, tomato-y creamy sauces. All round authentic spicy aromatic goodness that warms my tummy and soul.
Everything is spicy so prepare your tongues.
Yum Kai Dao, pad ped proam are my favorites here. Beer Lao light, which can be hard to find in the city. Love this place.
Noodle soup = win!
Get the morning glory with crispy pork
Best papaya salad place I have had outside of Thailand. Stick to the Isaan fare ( spicy salads and grilled meats) that's their speciality.
Terrible service and very rude
Try the crispy whole tilapia, and duck larb.
Northeastern-Thai/Laotian style. One of the most flavorful and spicy of it's kind in Manhattan.
$7-14 thai food
Service is rude. Would avoid for this reason alone.
Som tum Thai and duck larb- authentic and some of the best in the city. Music selection can be improved.
Too spicy for Raphael Langenscheidt.
Ordered 3 most popular dishes. Everything is way too salty. Very disappointed.
Inexpensive northern Thai food.
Fermented crab salad is mad authentic.
First time: veggie duck, papaya salad, duck larb, watercrest, sticky rice. YUM
Pretty good Thai food, most dishes are spicy and more authentic Thai
Great authentic Thai food...
The morning glory is amazing, and the medium spicy papaya salad is phenomenal. So spicy so worth it!
Papaya salad was pretty good. Great authentic spicy Thai food. Love it :)
Pla Goong - steamed shrimp salad with Thai herb and chili lime dressing - Get this bouquet of flavors and spice! Delicious.
Get the Kana Moo Krob, Pad Ped Moo Krob, and Larb Kai.
Fried egg salad, faux duck curry are both craveworthy. They'll kick up the spice for real on som tom if you can handle it.
If you're looking for pad thai, you're out of luck. This place offers up a bunch of authentic Thai dishes with spice levels that'll knock your socks off. The larb is amazing.
excellent Thai in the east village. very spicy though, so be careful!
Try the som tum with peanuts and dried shrimp, pork larb, moo yang (grilled pork), or chinese broccoli with crispy pork (kana moo korb).
Pad ped moo korb ftw
