I do love thai food, and I understand that not all places can be like Sripraphai (in Queens), but the food at Chelsea Thai is so bland and generally tasteless that it actually made me consider giving up on eating it, even though I was hungry. I haven't had everything on the menu, only the beef salad, the red curry, the pad thai and the curry noodle, and the only item I enjoyed was the salad (which is actually absolutely delicious and a great value).

I go to this place often, so often that I run through their "Buy 10 get a Meal Free" cards. When they changed cooks last year, I noticed that the quality of the food changed for the worse, with the cooks leaving out the garlic and spices on most occasions, but I hung in there figuring they'd get better with practice. They haven't got better. The food got greasy. They have this big window where you can see the cooks prepare the food and I watch them cook and I see all three cooks consitently ladle up a huge amount of oil into their woks. I can see the food drowning in the oil. It's unnecessary and leaves the food a slick mess that slides onto your plate and into your mouth. Just imagine the amount of fat and calories you're getting in addition to the food! Today was the last straw. Brought my container of Pad See Ew back to the office and the container had a small hole in the bottom. The bag was brimming with oil. I'm not going back there again for lunch until I hear that they have new cooks.

I have heard people rave about this place as I sit at my laptop in the Chelsea market. The food is Ok; you can tell they use a lot of butter in the sauce so be forewarned. They don't give you that much for the price - too much rice. I had the pad thai here once ,and it obviously had the taste of a plastic container/storage.

The food is great and i love the setting the place is small but it feels like you are at home. i think their best dish is the Pad Thai.

Located inside the Chelsea Market, this takeout joint serves some of the freshest, fastest Thai food in town. Call me crazy but I think their version of pad prik gao prow (basil chicken) is the best in the city.
