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!

The food here is very good : I've spent a lot of time in Thailand and this is the nearest I've eaten in NYC. They do actually put a decent amount of chili in their dishees which is more than I can say for the woefully underseasoned food in most Thai places here.. However it just took 80 minutes fo rmy food to travel from Klong to St Marks & A, it was cold, and they got the order wrong, but as it took so long to arrive I cldn't complain as I was about to collapse with hunger. They are terrible at taking orders as the restaurant is so loud that neither you nor they can hear properly on the 'phone. However, I wld happily reommend eating in there - so long as you aren't at the back where the water feature makes the room smell of damp caves. Oh & don't order the som tam (green papaya ) salad if you've eaten it in Asia, as there is no chili or seasoning in the version here. Odd.

Thai is my favorite cusine so I just love this place. What a selection (you can chose chicken, shilp or tofu in almost every dish). And interesting drinks too. This place is great for birthday parties.

I go to Klong whenever I get a chance and have taken all sorts of friends there and have never had a bad experience. I can't think of another place where the environment/service/quality of food is so good for so little. Many of the main dishes cost under 10 dollars and food is often delivered to your table before you can blink. My boyfriend recently recommended it to his foodie parents. Which comes as a very high compliment. Here's the Klong!

Don't listen to any of the negative reviews. I live on the upper east side, and have been going out of my way for years for Klong! The food is amazing and the staff while they may be a little on the slow side is very nice. Any great restaurant you go to during prime dinner hours is going to be crowded, and noisy. You can't beat this place, the food is amazing and unbelievably cheap for nyc! The drinks are great too, especially when they have half price happy hour(see website for details!). So, if you want a great thai experience in the middle of the east village at a very low cost, go to Klong!
