    Much better Thai many other places...

    Went here the other night with a group of girlfriends for the first time. Nice atmosphere and location, but that is the only thing the place has going for it. Service was decent and the prices wouldn't be so bad if the food was good, as I don't mind paying more for a great meal. Unfortunately, it wasn't. Had the tuna tartare as an appetizer and it was flavorless. The tiger prawns as my main course were large but fishy and not good at all. Dessert and drinks were decent but nothing I would go back for. All in all a big disappointment and with so many other good Thai places that are a better value in the city there is no way I would return.

    Never Again

    First of all, I would like to say that I really like this place. Yes, it feels a bit pretentious but actually the service is friendly, the food is very good, and I don't mind a fancy drink every now and again. Now to my point... On my recent (and last) visit to Kitti, I and two other friends ordered the $65 tasting menu. Being a seafood-eating-vegetarian I asked to swap the chicken main with the fish main from the $50 tasting menu. This is the third time I have requested this and on this occasion I was told there would be a small surcharge. Although surprised, we accepted this, ordered our fancy drinks, and started to enjoy our meal. Then the bill arrived and they had charged us $5 each for the swapping the fish dish with the chicken dish. If you think this is ok, you are pretentious. I however call this blatant robbery! Sorry Kitti, but I will not go back to a restaurant that thinks that kind of stunt is ok!

    Too hip for me

    Too trendy...too hip. I might even say this place is on the verge of being a bit pretentious. Small portions, few menu choices and over priced. With so many really good Thai restaurants in Manhattan, this would be the last place I would go back to. Cool looking room but that's about it for my taste.

    not your typical Thai restaurant

    This restaurant is definitely one of those 'sex and the city' type restaurants, where patrons drink fancy drinks (i no longer use "expensive" as that is now a relative term in NYC) The food wasn't quite what i was expecting - i forgot that it is thai fusion...there weren't even noodles (i.e. a fancy pad thai or something). The starters are good - we had the sashimi(okay), the sweet and sour soup (good), the fishcakes (smelled kind of fishy), and the chocolate spiced ribs (excellent). We shared the whole fish in curry, and the tofu curry - both were good, while the whole fish was a bit messy. I would say this is a nice trendy spot to take out of town guests (as I was doing), or start a girls night out (the drinks are great) but if you want simple thai food, klong, jaiya, etc would probably be a better bet.

    Excellent Tasting Menu (Prix-Fixe)

    Kittichai is a superb Thai Fusion restaurant in terms of food, service, and atmosphere. If you order the tasting (prix-fixe) menu, it's a great value as well. Please note that you get full portions of every single item listed within that menu. Unless your appetite is much bigger than mine, you will almost certainly have to take some of it to go. The $65 menu (rather than the $50 menu) in particular has all of the restaurant's signature menu items, including the excellent Chocolate Baby Back Ribs, the Baked Chilean Sea Bass, the Pineapple Braised Short Ribs in Green Curry, and the Flourless Valrhona Chocolate Cake. In all, the meal comes with six appetizers, four main entrees, three sides, and two desserts. Every item was excellent, with the possible exception of the Tiger Prawns, which were good but smelled a little fishy, as another reviewer noted. None of the items were spicy at all, unlike at a traditional Thai restaurant. Note that the tasting menus are served family style. The $65 menu requires a minimum of 2 people and the $50 tasting menu requires a minimum of 3 people. Also note that they do serve Thai Iced Tea, even though it is not listed on the menu.

    downhill

    i agree that the service, crowd and atmosphere are top notch- but what happened to the food? very disappointed- appetizers were cold, ribs fatty, prawns had an overwhelming fishy smell- very sad decline.

    why the negative words of late?

    still one of the most beautiful and calming restaurants in the city. the staff are knowledgable and courteous. i ate there this weekend and had a wonderful meal. a lively , attractive youthful crowd. overall a very enjoyable experience. some sour grapes out there.
