I just ordered green vegetable curry for lunch with green papaya salad - $9.95 (entree comes with appetizer) they wouldn't deliver for less than $15 so I ordered summer rolls too. The delivery came fast, but what surprisingly poor food!!! The papaya salad was wet. Spongy sour green papaya with cherry tomatoes. Curry - 20% curry 80% white rice. In the curry - 5 tiny pcs of bamboo shoots, 2 tiny pieces of bell pepper, 1 piece of mushroom and basil. Summer rolls came apart with dry chicken, dry piece of shrimp and greens that fall out of the rice paper. I am HIGHLY disappointed, and I would not recommend anyone to eat lunch there.

Walking down Lispenard Street to 35, named for its street address, one sees a mostly empty street old industrial lofts with shuttered storefronts mixed with newer luxury residences. However walking into 35 one is whisked away from a deserted street in Tribeca to a tranquil oasis. The soft leather banquets and sturdy dark wood tables are a compliment to the stone wall and muted purple and pink lighting; the music is present and calming but not too loud that you have to shout over it to talk with your dinner companions. The service was lovely and prompt, clarifying the differences between the curries and always filling making sure the water glasses were more than half full. Speaking of the water glasses, their oval shape was whimsical and fun. Now onto the food. The calamari was fried in a tempura batter which made it light but a little bland. A little salt could have gone a long way yet there was a nice little spice to it. The stir fry glass noodles with chicken at a spice level of 3 which was just the right amount of heat, just enough to get your mouth going but not so much that you start to cry. While the chicken looked poach and was flavorless by itself, when coated with the sauce it was flavorful with a good kick. The glass noodles soaked up the sauce and complimented the chicken well. The curry dishes were a big hit. The red curry with chicken was scrumptious and the green curry with vegetarian duck was just as delightful. Non-curry dishes satisfied also; the basil chili noodle was delish. All in all 35 is a nice little unexpected gem hidden on an empty stretch just a block from bustling Canal Street.

Ordered the Red Curry lunch special for delivery. The jumbo shrimp were small, the portion was tiny, there was no flavor and they forgot part of the order. Delivery was quick but I would not order from here again.

Food is delicious and one order is enough for at least 2 meals. The menu is not very flexible so they charge you for every substitution. I have gotten the Basil Stir-fry several times and it is always good. The service is not great and it's not very busy so you're better off just ordering take-out and enjoying some yummy thai at home.

Tried this place during lunch and ordered Green curry from the lunch special menu. I love the green curry taste. Seating environment is good. The service is good. The waitress kept refilling my water (it wasn't too crowded at that time). I will definitely come back and try another dish.

FINALLY, a good Thai place that's downtown and good . Nice interior thats not "dingy", like the other Thai places downtown...they also deliver to Battery Park ! cudos! Not the best Thai food I ever had, but pretty darn good. Great Panang and not too $$. I am a repeat customer. I repeat.

35 is by far the best Pad Thai in the city that we have tried, and trust me, we have tried a lot of places. We live uptown and go down to 35 everytime we want Pad Thai because nothing we have found compares to it. You have to try the Tom Kha soup - it is pure white heaven. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, usually candlelit at night and never crowded- a nice place for conversation over dinner. The service is fine and unassuming, we have never had any negative experiences. The value is very good for Pad Thai in Manhattan ($7.95 to $9.95), although some of the other dishes are a bit pricier. The portions are generous on the entrees, although I would not recommend ordering the spring rolls- they only give you two small rolls and it is not worth the price. This restaurant is a hidden gem on a side street. If you like good Pad Thai, check it out and try the Tom Kha soup, you won't regret it.
