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.

We've been coming here for about 6 years. The past year, it has gone downhill. The portions are much smaller, and the sauces just aren't what they used to be. And why do they insist on using those huge plates to serve a tiny pad thai? We are disappointed. It used to be consistantly great, and now NOT.

honestly, i used to love this place. have eaten here at least 8-10 times, i've recommended it to friends, colleagues and family. but tonight was a huge disappointment. appetizers were great - charcoal beef and curry puff = dope. massaman curry, however, was way too thick tonight and didn't have a very good flavor. what was most puzzling about this experience was the service. it was like they didn't care whether people felt this was a well-run establishment or not. they are all super nice people - but after our dishes were cleared we waited a half hour for someone to come by to ask how we were doing. we wanted dessert, which finally we asked for and that took 25 minutes. a piece of pecan pie - really? then, the check process took another 20. sat down at 7, had our meals cleared at 7:30 (apps and main dishes). didn't leave the restaurant til 9pm. on a monday night. klong, you're gonna need to do better than that. new yorkers are too restaurant-saavy, dawg. still like the food, and it's obviously in a great area. i'll be back, but i hope they fix the issues. khap kuhn khap!
