Loved Hells Kitchen area for food and this Thai is great. Didn't book but turned up early as I'd heard it gets busy and it's quite small. 5 of us ate very well, lovely service, really enjoyed it :)

We sat at the side counter and it was a tight fit! But the service is wonderfully efficient and the food is really delicious. We had various noodle dishes (pad thai and pad see ew) and the chicken sate and everything was very well prepared.

The place was packed! Fortunately we were only two so we were able to get a spot rather fast. We had the beef noodle soup and it was great! Definitely recommend the place :)

This small eatery is very easy to overlook. Seats are very cramped. Service is surprisingly good. Ordered shrimp pad thai and liked it a lot. The taste is like a trip to Bangkok. Price is very reasonable in the City.

Yes, this restaurant is small and "hole in the wall" accurately describes it. It might seat 30 people max and by 5:45 PM on a Thursday. already had a wait line. The staff is friendly and efficient. You are not going there for the ambiance...More
