Description

Village Voice's Description

There was a lot of buzz about this slick place on the western edge of Woodside, which cultivates the look of a franchise fast-food restaurant, with colorful wall treatments and curvy Formica booths. The food is a grab-bag of Bangkok-style Thai, with some Chinese thrown in for good measure. The red duck curry proved excellent, swimming in coconut milk, with a few chunks of pineapple that we didn't mind. Chicken-stuffed curry puffs were also excellent, though the dish called crispy chicken was something of a sticky disaster. We quickly realized that the utility of this place lies in its willingness to make the food just as hot as you want it, and a chicken larb salad left us pleasantly bathed in sweat.

    Some of the best Thai I've had in the city, hands down. As if the food alone isn't enough they are super friendly too! Try the pumpkin basil soup...

  • This gem in Sunnyside has the best Thai food in all of NYC. Most importantly, they know how to SPICE it up, so get ready to shed a tear or two. BONUS: they know what VEGAN means!

    I love the Pad Thai here. Very good portions and cheap! Also try the pineapple fried rice and basil ground chicken.

  • Steph V. on 07/09/12

    Fav dishes- Pad Thai, Pineapple Fried Rice, Green Curry. Everything here is delicious! And you can't leave without having the Mango Tango!
