The Thai and American couple behind this seductive Astoria spot have created a restaurant that feels like a sexy lounge, with alluring lighting, red-and-black walls, cushion-strewn blond wood banquettes, and a jazz soundtrack. The output from the kitchen is equally artful. Plump seafood, delivered daily, is wok-fried until just tender. Thai curries—red, green, massaman, jungle, peanut, and Penang—emerge pungently seasoned. Fried rice is crispy and flecked with basil; velvety coconut-chicken soup comes perfectly sweet-and-sour. And the peanut-rich noodle classic, pad Thai, arrives with its ingredients brightened by coriander and arranged side-by-side for the diner to mix like a Cobb salad. Dishes are conservatively spiced, but you can always request “Thai style” heat at your own risk—the results are fiery.

The Astoria lunch bunch

Wave Thai’s weekday afternoon meal is popular with local freelancers in search of a procrastination break. Seven bucks buy a spring roll, soup or salad, and entrée.
