We'll make a separate trip into the city just to go to Nicky's! They have some of the best Thai food I've ever had, with interesting dishes and specials that many restaurants don't showcase on their regular menu. The appetizers are more than enough to share, and the sizes of the dishes are very generous. The staff is friendly and... More

We were visiting Pittsburgh and happened to be in the neighborhood. Hadn't checked out the reviews or heard about the place, just happened to be walking by, the restaurant looked promising. As soon as we were inside, I knew we had made the right choice - quite packed, nice atmosphere. We had the green curry noodle soup, chicken black (with... More

Three of us dined here. We all loved the food. The cocktails were just right. But, it was a warm (not hot) day and the restaurant was too hot. We were sticking to our seats. So I would like to visit again, but when it's cold outside! Haha!

This restaurant's food is so good that when I asked staff at neighboring restaurants about it, the staff consistently said that this restaurant has devoted followers. Of course then I had to try for myself...and now this restaurant has gained another devoted follower.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The appetizer sampler was superb, as was the Shitake Duck. This is clearly a place that makes a lot of people happy, as the place was both packed and festive. We'll eat here again.

All Thai food is created equal? Not really! When I eat at a new restaurant of a cuisine that I have eaten before, I usually order the same dish so I can compare apples-to-apples. No different in this case at Nicky's Thai in Pittsburgh. The fresh Spring rolls were some of the best I have ever had. The chicken satay... More

Very busy place but definitely worth the wait. The prices are reasonable and the place can be noisy. Nice ambience with buddha figurines all over the place. Food took about 15-20 minutes from ordering to arriving. Not a big place so a reservation ahead would help, if you're short on time. The hotel I stayed in provided free shuttle to... More

Wow - we were told about this place by someone at our hotel. The space is a bit tight, but the food was seriously amazing. The food was fresh and well-prepared, with just the perfect amount of spice. Would highly recommend!

Had to wait till it opened at 5 pm, but it's worth the wait! After I ordered the food, it came within 10 minutes and totally met my expectation! I ordered Gaprow Lad Kao with pork and spicy level 6. It came with two fried eggs crispy on the outside and little running in the inside. Perfect Asian way of... More

Went with a client. The food was outstanding. It's a small place, and I wonder how the fire marshal doesn't shut them down at lunch time. I don't know what the max occupancy is, but as close together as the tables are, I have to believe they're over it, no matter what it is. Maybe the Thai culture is more... More
