Larger than expected appetizers and a Bombay Pumpkin and Chicken dish I can't stop thinking about.

I had to chime in because of some of the other reviews here. I work near Klong and have it at least once a week. I don't know what the previous reviewer had, but I can't praise the lunch specials enough. They're $6 for a big portion of an entree and an appetizer, and everything I've ever gotten has been fantastic, especially the Spicy Basil Noodles, which are out of this world. The service and ambiance aren't much, but who cares when food is this good and this cheap? As for the "Americanized" claims below, this is no more or less Americanized than any other standard Thai restaurant in the city or in the area. But, for my money, it's considerably above average in terms of food, so despite how much better someone might feel after making this claim, it's not just for students and tourists who don't know better (the fact that St. Mark's is home to some of the city's most authentic Asian food weakens this claim even more). If you want to be pretentious about how authentic the food you're eating is, go elsewhere, but if you want wonderfully tasty food at super low prices, Klong is absolutely the best choice in the area.

my sister recommended this place to me and i have been a patron for years. however, i only order the appetizers because nothing else on the menu is good. they do have a huge selection but i made the mistake of ordering a lunch special. DO NOT order the lunch special! appetizers to try- DUCK salad, fried calamari, firecrackers, honey wings! prices are worth it too. my friend and i ate there for about $40 but only ordered the appetizers!

The location on St. Marks is great, and the decor and staff is perfectly nice, but this is very Americanized Thai food - a huge disappointment for those who know and love authentic Thai cuisine. The use of typically Thai ingredients and flavors was scant - almost no Kaffir lime leaf aside from 3 or 4 hair-thick slivers, no visible galangal in the Tom Kha to speak of - and the curries were very sweet and lacked spice/chili. To boot, chopsticks were packed in the bag - Thai food IS NOT EATEN WITH CHOPSTICKS. Thai food is consumed with a fork and spoon. This seems very much for the tourists, the NYU students who are used to middle america strip mall Thai/Chinese restaurants with names like Asia King, and the young crowd that has never experienced genuine, tongue-awakening, and not always sugary Thai food.

Not offering special, nor suggestion on the food. They were very impolite and pushy. By the end of the night, the waitress dropped the check without even offering dessert. By the time that We paid a different server came to the table demanding a better tip. Lousy service. I will never gonna come back to this place. There is much better places on the same block.

I love this place! Great food, beautiful decor, great cocktails, fast service and also fast delivery. I could eat here every day honestly. Highly recommended!

I love Klong. I always order the spicy basil noodles with shrimp or the chicken ravioli soup, the fritters, and the pad see ewe. It's SO fast once you order. Sometimes the wait is a little tedious, and it's annoying that they don't take reservations for parties under 4 people, but there are good drinks at the bar (albeit a little sweet). Try the tamarind saketini - yum.
