Though this bi-level eatery near Ave B has a thrown-together look—faded tropical photos, bamboo accents, green neon lighting, and a blaring flatscreen—the kitchen is straightforward, cranking out consistent, zesty Thai dishes. And while the expansive menu offers classics like peanut-dotted pad Thai, Kefir lime leaf-scented prig khing fried rice, and fiery tom yum soup, lesser known dishes can be rewarding. Among the chef’s signatures is an oversized platter of crispy pork ribs slathered in a piquant tamarind sauce, making it a succulent, shareable starter. Other above-par options include a tender duck wrap served with a hefty portion of taro fries and an egg noodle-based bah mee gang gai entree drizzled with a tasty red coconut curry sauce. In addition to the standard desserts, Amaya also serves a sinfully sweet, honey-flavored fried banana with the perfect amount of crunch.Recommended Dishes
