On my first visit, I was rushed by my waitress because they were "busy," told that several items were not available, and then had to wait 40 minutes for a dish that the waitress had insisted that I order, and that turned out to be an utterly generic chicken-cashew stirfry. I agree with some other reviewers that the experience here is probably much different if you are a regular than if you are a newcomer. Which is great if you're a regular, but really good restaurants try to impress everyone. I actually got the impression that the better food, as well as the better service, was being saved for more special customers.
My top thai recommendation anywhere outside Thailand.

Look. I've been to Thailand, ate for a whole week the real Thai food â€“ not the sterile restaurants in Bangkok â€“ but in the countryside, where noone speaks english and you buy your breakfast and lunch for 50Â¢ in little plastic bags, and it's the best food you'll find in all of Thailand. Only one restaurant I've been outside Thailand is comparable to that, and it's Sripraphai in Queens. The far train ride from my home in Clinton Hill (G+7) gets more than compensated by with the delicious Lapkai and curries, fishes and everything else. It'll make your day.
Food isn't everything
By GoodFoodie on 5/5/2007
Been here a few times to get the real scoop. On weekend evenings, expect a wait before sitting down, but not too long, say 10-15 mins. Tasty food, decent portions. Decor is nothing special. The rooms, loud and crowded. Some might say "festive"; others, too loud. Entrees are $7.50 to $14+. WATCH OUT for overcharges on your bill--they've done that to us every time we've gone. It's intentional, since it's happened a few times. (Don't know about you, but in an all cash business, it really pisses me off to be nickeled and dimed.) Worst of all was our service. We waited 40 mins. for our dishes, while our waitress served her later-arriving "regulars" first. No one apologized, our waitress never returned to our table--not for water, nothing. We paid our bill through the busboy and left unthanked, unlike the regulars who departed amidst smiles and thank yous. Very disappointed. We'll try Jackson Heights for comparable food, better service, and cheaper prices. They shouldn't treat newcomers like this or they won't have any more regulars.

Best Thai food ever, great prices, and after their renovation this place looks amazing..look forward to their garden in the spring, fresh flowers, and the staff are very polite...always a good experience to go there...everything on the menu is worth trying, the flavors of the food are very intense and they always leave you wanting to come back for more on the next day..
