My wife and I ate at this place because it was recommended to us and it was a huge disappointment. My wife is Thai and we asked for our food to be as spicy as they could possibly make and my wife even asked them in Thai to YES make it crazy spicy. The food came and it wasn’t spicy at all. The curry was super sweet nothing like Thailand and the Tom Yum Goong was not good. It’s very disappointing that there are Thai restaurants serving food like this and calling it Thai.

The title says it all. Whenever I'm meeting friends midtown I suggest we meet at Breeze. The food is phenomenal and reasonably priced. The restaurant has a silly motif and is very well hidden on 9th Ave but the amazing Thai/French fusion definitely makes up for it. Try the spring rolls and the Veggie Duck Pad Thai or Naked Pad Thai for an amazing dinner! Also, they get busy before show time so get there early if you want to squeeze it in before a show.

In early Oct. my wife and I wanted good and interesting Thai near our hotel (the mediocre Milford Plaza). I've been to Seeda II a few times in that vicinity but there seemed, from a quick look on the 'net, to be a small enclave of moderately well reviewed Thai places nearer, including Breeze. We'd had lunch at the brilliant Esca that day so were not in need of anything massive. We trotted off to 9th to review menus and looked at the three than popped into view immediately. The last was Breeze which is a bit disguised but it looked OK as we read over the menu and peeped in. It still felt OK when we entered and friendly if a little bit "weathered". Indeed after I sat down I noticed just how mucky the place was. The menus proffered were quirky (CD holders) and also a bit grubby and worn. The appetizers looked fun so we ordered a few. The Wild Mushroom Dumplings were quite tasty and well done although seemed as though they were cooked a while before. Breeze Tar Tare was tasty. Papaya salad was brilliant. Then the downhill slide started. First the Summer Rolls came and were completely devoid of flavor. Then the beef salad we ordered in our second round was OK, beef a bit tough and overall not tasting of much and not remotely spicy (we ask for 15 on a scale of 1-10 hot). Then the real hideousness appeared. Crispy Red Snapper. Crispy it was. It looked good but OMG, the smell. An absolute honker. At first it wasn't completely obvious but once opened, yikes!!! It was awful. We took a mouthful each and then I shoved it to one side. Even the attempt at a spicy sauce could not mask the shear unpleasantness of this experience. I asked the waiter to remove the thing and described how I felt in no uncertain terms. I asked immediately for the check. When it arrived the waiter said that he was sorry I didn't like the fish. At that point I was near exploding but my wife, who hates a scene (although I've known her create a few!) told me to just pay and go. My only recourse was to omit service but they should have removed the awful thing from the bill. We'd had a fab day in New York. It was sad that it was marred by this unfortunate incident. I'd say, judging by other recent reviews something has gone badly wrong with this place. We shall not be returning. There's plenty of competition so hopefully others will vote with their feet. And judging by the shabby, quite dirty state of the place the health folk should have closed it down before the lack of custom does.

I went here with my boyfriend last Friday. As we were walking to the restaurant, we noticed at least two other Thai restaurants in the neighborhood. The place has nice decor, is very hip and has a very Ikea-ish/real world set feel. We ordered the mushroom wonton appetizer--it was fine, nothing spectacular about it. I ordered the steak sandwich and boyfriend ordered the duck. The steak sandwich was okay--a little too charred and "done" for my taste. Honestly, I just wanted a dish that came with fries so that is what I ordered. The boyfriend said the duck was okay but liked the squash wontons (that came with it) better. The food was pricey and the quality did not reflect the engorged prices.

Breeze used to be my favorite Thai food place and I had not been there for a long time. This saturday, I took 4 of my friends there. The apettizers were good.One of my friends who is a chef himself ordered a dish with beef. not only was it not tasty, but also not freshly cooked as well. We complained and said that we would not pay for that dish. The general manager came. She was very unfriendly and said nobody else has complained. This is no excuse. We were not even asked if we want coffee or desert, rhe bill was placed on the table right away.We were politely asked to leave. If the general manager had been a real professional, she would have dealt with the situation in a different manner. Attitude makes a difference.

I consider this one of the best food deals in the city. Every dish is unique and full of surprising flavours. This is high quality food served by very attentive staff in an unpretentious, cozy atmosphere. I definitely recommend this.
