The cooked to order coconut soup is lighter than other Thai restaurants so less fat/calories. Lots of slightly chewy galangal which really works well in a soup. Also like that they resisted the urge to load it up with veggies more familiar to westerners like brocoli.

The soups and appetizers I've tried had a fresher taste than some other Thai restaurants. For a quick lunch the small portions don't bother me too much but for dinner Dee Daa is out of the question.

Overpriced for what amounts to run of the mill greasy take-out thai. The drunken noodles are advertised as having string beans and carrots in them (per the menu), however the actual dish didn't contain any of these veggies,just a little baby corn. As others have mentioned, the noodles are cut into very small pieces--not appealing. I have yet to find good Thai in east midtown.

The restaurant has modern looking but the food tastes not so good and the portion is too small for a meal!

We tried this place the first week it opened and were seriously disappointed - the portion sizes were insanely small and we all ended up eating cereal as a snack two hours later. We went back a few weeks ago and it was okay, so we went again today for the third (and probably last) time. The two major problems I see with this place are portion consistency and the chicken quality (note that I've never gotten any of the other protein choices). How much food you're going to get for your $8 varies wildly and you really have no idea what you're going to get. Looks like today I'll be having a mid-afternoon snack of cereal, since my takeout containers (one of rice, one of curry) were both roughly half full, though slightly less on the curry one. They do seem to fill the containers significantly more for the dine-in customers, since I guess they would be able to notice immediately that they were getting ripped off. Takeout customers, not so lucky. The other issue here is the chicken, which appears to be boiled and then tossed into the curry afterwards. Boiled chicken simply does not taste good, especially when it's dry and overcooked like this boiled chicken. This place is a skip, hands down.
