I enjoyed the restaurant the first time I was there, right after they'd opened their larger venue, so I went back with enthusiasm. Unfortunately, every dish we ordered was mediocre and disappointing. The duck in the warm duck salad was cool, and when that was pointed out, the whole dish was microwaved or warmed over, lettuce and all, and just thrown back on the plate, not presented piled up as when first served. The ribs appetizer was room-temperature, and needed to be heated; it was lack-luster either way. The worst was the marinated, grilled red snapper which appeared old and warmed over from the start, and tasted as much. Service is hardly attentive. It took forever to find out waitperson, and forever to get the food served and then returned after the complaint. Not a good experience all around. I don't think I'd bother to try them again.

If you're looking for some decent Thai food at a good value you may want to check this place out. The calamari app was great...the sauce it comes with made the dish. I ended up having the salmon dish. The sauce it came with was a little too sweet but overall i liked the dish. I've been to the one located near NYU and i thought the food, overall, was better at that location but considering this one is in my neighborhood, it will have to do. Not necessarily my first choice but would definitely go here again.
Really good Thai food

I've eaten at the Chelsea location on several occasions and it is consistently great food. I enjoy the typical thai meal, beef pad thai, spring rolls and the thai tea. The space is small, especially cramped in the winter time when the front of the restaurant is closed off, a little better in the summer with the sidewalk seating.

hi, we went for lunch and by accident they spilled iced tea on a friend. not only they took her coat to clean it, they brought a desert for the whole table (5 people) and gave us 20% discount. Great service. job well done!
