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!

My friends and I went to Klong a few weekends ago. We had an 8:00 reservation, but weren’t seated until 8:30pm (the hostess was fairly rude about it as well). The décor is nice, although the place was packed and it was uncomfortable having to stand around waiting for our table. The food and drinks were well priced and some of it was delicious. The ravioli soup, as well as the chili chicken was good. All dishes had generous portion sizes as well. The service was terrible though. All of our food and drinks were not bought out at the same time, so we had to wait for everyone to get their food. Also, one of us got the wrong dish and the waiters denied she ordered her original choice. I would recommend Klong, but definitely not on the weekend without a reservation.

I've been here a quite often. The worst time to go is at night because it is so crowded and the waiters are so busy. However, if you go during lunch hour, it's fantastic. The waiters are attentive, you can hear yourself speak, there is no waiting and it's cheap to eat! I love coming here for lunch. The spicy basil noodle is my absolute favorite and i love the firecrackers and calamari. I highly recommend this place. I've taken many of my friends here and they LOVE IT. GO GO GO!
