This hyper-designed Thai joint is filled with mismatched modern art and funky light fixtures, and around its sleek wooden tables you’ll find families, couples, and groups of Chelsea locals communing over sweet Pad Thai as mellow music hums in the background. Authentic Thai cuisine this isn’t, but the atmosphere is relaxed and the prices are right. Pork dumplings are juicy and flavorful; they’re a better pick than bland summer rolls. Fresh grilled yum (marinated meats) are a limey, spicy complement to noodle preparations (try the competently prepared Pad Si-Eew). Steer clear of the overpriced and over-sauced entrees — duck with honey sauce is particularly disappointing, too tough and too sweet — and while the curries are sharp, the green version lacks a kick. Don’t come looking for a quick bite—service tends toward the slow.Recommended Dishes
