Profile

Pichet Ong is better known as a pastry chef, but his Thai restaurant, Qi Bangkok Eatery, makes quite the statement. Nestled into bustling Times Square, the stark white décor here provides a dramatic contrast to the flash and chaos outside. With Lucite tables, elaborate chandeliers enclosed in glass, and alluring dancing Shiva artwork, the overall impression is a kind of futuristic Thai palace, though it must be said that the ambiance is a bit offset by the rather lackadaisical service. There's a wide array of food to choose from with three distinct dinner menus—even a secret, rather cryptic menu written in Thai. Though there are a few innovative fusion dishes available, Qi does best with its more traditional options, namely the trademark pad Thai, a mélange of vermicelli noodles, seafood, and the usual suspects of bean sprouts and crushed peanuts, all wrapped in an egg crepe. The crispy duck salad is enlivened by the addition of mangoes, pineapples, and mint, making for a unique and refreshing appetizer. Given Ong’s background, ending the evening with a sweet touch is a must—the caramelized bread pudding, garnished with raspberries and a generous scoop of Bailey's ice cream, is a wonderful finale.

Recommended Dishes
