You're not going to go here for the atmosphere or the service. You come here for the FOOD! Went with my boyfriend and we got the chicken Larb, BBQ pork, and the drunken noodles. All were very good. The larb was my personal favorite -- spicy, not greasy, and super tasty. We also took an order of pad thai to go and it was the weakest of all the dishes since I can get pad thai that's just as good elsewhere. But overall, I definitely recommend it for a casual, inexpensive, and really really tasty meal. Enjoy!
Best Thai food in the neighborhood

not impressed with their service but their spicy food is exceptional...try fried crabs, ground cat-fish with mint & lime juice or chicken with shrimp dumplings for appetizers...yummy and try their fish entree...good stuff

You have to try this place! It's the best Thai I've had outside of Thailand! They have great lunch specials too.
You MUST eat at this place!

I haven't had Thai food this good since I went to Thailand. I had heard so many good things about this place when I moved a couple of blocks away and want to hit myself for taking almost a full year to visit. The service wasn't that fast but they were swamped the night I went so it's totally understandable. They were all very friendly. Want to experience heaven? Order the green curry with duck. Absolute bliss!
Best bang for your buck

Eat there at least once a month and the food is excellent. I have not found a better value in New York. The service is extremely quick, but do not expect to hang out for hours on end, for it is an extremely high volume restaurant. The decor is extremely simple, so do not go there expecting white linen. The bottom line is it is if you want a quick lunch/dinner, exceptional Thai food, at an extremely cheap price, this is your place. Suggestions: Order family style; my favorite dishes include roasted duck salad, fried soft shell crab with shredded mango, curried pork with string beans, soy noodles, drunken noodles, and sauteed fish with garlic and lime. As a heads up, they are closed on Wednesdays.
Decent food, but service too terrible to tolerate... go somewhere else
By lisie846 on 8/31/2009
Food was decent (I've had better in Manhattan -- not really worth the trip to Queens), but the service was horrible. Appetizers went ok. Then when it was time for entrees, out of a party of three, 2 of us got our entrees and our third friend had to ask twice for hers. By the time she got her entree, we had almost finished eating... and waitstaff was completely unapologetic about the error. Within five minutes of finishing our entrees, we were asked to pay and then told we needed to leave our table (on the back patio) because another table was waiting. I understand asking a table to leave after they've been sitting for an hour+, but we had just finished eating! To make matters worse, we walked through the restaurant to leave and it was 70% empty -- but rather than tell another group they needed to sit inside, we were kicked out of our table after we had given a generous tip. The manager was unapologetic. It is not worth my money to eat run-of-the-mill Thai food and be treated so rudely.
I had a lackluster experience...

...I don't feel like repeating myself, so you can read my blog post: (http://strollerkill.wordpress.com/2009/06/19/an-outer-borough-experience-sripraphai-for-thai/). Suffice to say, I'll be sticking with Pam Real Thai in Manhattan.
Best Thai I've had in NYC!
By CassieStevie on 4/12/2009
I've been on a very serious hunt for good Thai food in NYC, and have been shocked by the dearth of it. This is easily the best I've found so far. The crispy watercress salad my date and I had for appetizer was a bit dry, but I suspect this was because we got seated after the restaurant was technically supposed to close. (We showed up at 8:30 PM on a Saturday night, and had to wait more than an hour on line. You're really trying your luck if you get there after 8 PM.) I really enjoyed my drunken noodles and the massaman curry, and the lychee ice cream was a nice way to finish. Another big plus: a bottle of wine (though nothing a sommelier would enthusiastically recommend) can be had for $20-25. Both rieslings on offer were $20. The place was packed, so I didn't judge the hostess too harshly for marching us to our seats and dropping the menus on the table without any eye contact or a word of greeting. I would be interested to see what happens on a slower night though. Will definitely return!
Best Thai Food in New York
By vwoolworth on 12/12/2008
So when I moved to NYC I went to a a thai place on the upper west side. The guy noticed that we knew about thai food and that my girlfriend was thai. He came back to us and asked if we wanted to know where the best thai food was and of course we said yes. It was very odd that he would tell us of another place but we said ok. We have been there 10+ times and we love it every time we go. Every dish we have tried we love. For those who say the place has horrible service I have no idea what you are talking about. We love the service, they always fill up our water and bring us our food on time. Love this place!!!
