As soon as we got to the restaurant, we knew we were in for a treat. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful. The food was so good. I recommend the fish cakes, beef salad, sizzling beef with honey, and duck breast. They all tasted fantastic. Make sure you bring your wallet though as it is expensive. But it's worth every penny! We'll go back.

Having lived in Asia for 5 years and with Thai food as my favourite cuisine of the region I had high expectations of the experience at Kittichai. What a disappointment. The restaurant looks nice enough and the staff are pleasant but the food is a disaster. A simple Tom Yum soup just tasted all wrong, the beef salad was just gritty and exactly what part of Thailand would Chocolate baby back ribs come from, they would be all right if they tasted good but they didn't? I actually came back to the place within 4 weeks but had the same experience, still trying to find a decent Thai restaurant in NYC.

I went for my boyfriend's birthday and this restaurant was excellent. I often go to asian restaurants (tao, asia de cuba, sea, spice, spice market) and this one was my favorite. The restaurant was small, yet lovely decorated. The food and drinks had great presentation and actually had a good size. I love this place and will def come again when an important occasion arises.

Nice, trendy place. That's about it. Food is decent but nothing to rave about.

Pleasantly surprised with the food and price at this much hyped hotel restaurant. My whole table had multiple drinks, appetizers, and entrees. Nobody had dessert and the damage came to less than 75 per person. In my world that does not seem out of hand. I had avoided going here for the last couple of months because I thought I would be disappointed, but the food was wonderful. I had the seafood soup to start and the wok fried chicken. Both were great. If you get the soup, just extinguish the heating device they serve with it. (my tongue is burnt) I tried the monkfish which was stellar. The beef and rock shrimp appetizers were both solid but unremarkable. The decor is wonderful and the tables are not too close to each other. The place is both buzzing and soothing at the same time. The one downside that seemed common from start to finish was the undisciplined and immature waitstaff. I really don't care about this stuff, but if you are uptight or out to impress a client, date, etc, then these things will bother you. And I am always bothered when I ask for a suggestion and hear the response, "everything is awesome". Thanks for your insight. Cool decor, good-great food, decent scene, poor service.

The places is real cool, but the food was average. Our waiter told us the must have appetizer, which was not very good. The main couse we had, one of the 2 was excellent (the braised spare ribs), the other a tolal let down...and desert was poor.

Great food fusions - I was overwhelmed with great flavors, I just wish it weren't so expensive! The chicken/quail leg appetizer was awesome, as was the rest of the foods we tried. The decor was great, service was snobby, but you'd expect that at 60thom/soho... I'd highly recommend esp if you're not the one paying.
