As a thai in the city just for the summer, I was craving THAI. For fear of disappointment, however, I was too scared to try anything! But Klong hit the spot. The food is really authentic! The waiters were very attentive and the desserts - I recommend the khao-tom-mud - were divine! The drinks are amazing too - interesting concoctions you won't find anywhere else - try the frost in a bangkok nightmarket and the ruby of siam (the "bartendress" on wed nights is really cute!) plus. The decor is funky - hip - modern. Great date spot. Great for after work drinks. Great for dinner with friends. Recommend: duck salad, seafood salad, and papaya salad. Not too pricey but pricier in comparison to other st.mark's places (which are VERY VERY cheap) it's a little more. Give it a shot and you'll crave another visit.

Sir/Madam, I don't know if you've ever eaten real Thai food in authentic places or even Thailand, but the food they serve at Klong is certainly NOT thai food. Believe me, I've given them the benefit of the doubt many times thinking maybe I didn't order the right thing...but every single time I've been there (about 5 times), they have thoroughly disappointed me. I am an American born Thai who has lived in Thailand for months at a time and I can tell you that the flavors are definitely NOT robust. I had ordered a Laad Nah and it was extremely bland. They advertise as being authentic, but when I had requested a typical common Thai condiment, they did not have it. They've gotta be kidding me.

I have eaten at klong many times. I always bring big parties and groups to klong that end up spending lots of money. I called last night to place an order for delivery and because i live on 22st they wanted to charge me a $3 delivery fee (however free delivery to 20th st). Mind you, the money was not the issue. It was the principle that this could not be waived for me, a regular customer. I even spoke to the manager who was unwilling to waive this delivery fee. I feel that i help bring big business to this restaurant but because i was treated so poorly i will take my business elsewhere.

Do you even eat Thai? The food here is seriously the best Thai I've ever had in NY. The flavors are robust, the spices are just perfect and the waitstaff, although very busy, are for the most part courteous. There's a reason they're always packed every night. The value here is phenomenal and the food is just delicious and their portions are GIGANTIC! I wonder how they even make money sometimes! I usually have a tiger so I'm not sure about their mixed drinks, but to say their food is "blah"? What nonsense!

I was disappointed in the drinks - supersweet with little alcohol, and the food - blah. The restaurant had nice atmosphere and good service but the food was tasteless so I wouldn't recommend it.

My name is Tony Jaa. Some might remember me from my movie, Ong Bak, the Thai Warrior. Being from Thailand, I was surpised to discover that Klong made such impossibly delicious food! I combo punched/kicked the waiter in the face by accident when he surprised me with my singha beer (I have the reflexes of a cat unfortunately), but all in all, my experience was very delightful. I will be back.

The food is good, the happy hour deal is great, and the waitstaff are hotties. The only downside is that everyone seems to love this place and the volume level at dinner is deafening.
