Tiny place. No music. Casual. No frills. Wouldn't recommend for large parties, birthdays or celebrations. But great for a chat, some BYOB wine with no corkage fee and tasty delicious Thai food. Don't ask for spicy though as it becomes inedible and we like spicy. We go here regularly and always enjoy the food.

A good thai place in the midtown area as there are not many. BEWARE: very small place. Only 6 tables for 2. They don't take reservations. Fried pork dumplings are tasty. Curries not bad but have had better elsewhere. Did came out fast from kitchen.

A group of 6 went during lunch time and it was the perfect place to have lunch and talk a bit with colleagues. the attention was good. The food delicious and the portions enough for lunch. I ordered duck and it was what I wanted. No complaints.

Tiny, tiny place (maybe 8 tables, max.) We have far superior Thai places in Houston. Food spicy, but bland. How can that be?

Craving Thai- which has been hard to find in mid-town- hotel sent us here. They do a big take out business- and can seat 12 people. Huge variety of choices- everything was great- except we should have shared an entree as they would have been great to take home - but no place in hotel to put it.

Here you can get a nice Thai dish but not one of the best in NY Service is way to slow and if you're in a hurry just don't go there you will never have your lunch in time Dessert are good and i particularly like the sticky mango rice

We visited here yesterday for dinner, after I had bought a Groupon. Wow, so good! It's very small but we were the only ones there. The two ladies serving us were lovely - very friendly and helpful. Service was excellent! The food was amazing - extremely tasty, very fresh and great big portions. The prices are really reasonable. One of... More

We love oriental/Asian food, and this place met of needs. The food was great and a very good value. Everything was fresh and quickly served. The staff watched us carefully and waited on us immediately. Overall, great food at a great price, We had red snapper, shrimp, and chicken, with dumpling appetizers...all great.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
