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.

Just went here tonite. there was a happy hour. singha beer 2 for 1, but you can't share it with another person. The waitress told me that if I don't finish it, they won't bring me my free beer, what's that about? Anyway got the tempura calamari, too greasy. Some noodle dish in a light curry sauce, it was more like noodle soup, also not anything special. the atmosphere, nothing out of the ordinary, the cheap cafeteria like seats were too low for the tables. It's such an average place, decent prices though, but I don't think i would be craving to go back to this place. there are much better thai places to go and more authentic. but if you're looking for trendy i guess this is the place for you.

First of all Thai food is my absolute favorite. I've been to Klong numerous times now and have completely enjoyed it each time. The lighting is dim, but that is one of the things I enjoy about this restaurant. The atmosphere is romantic, but still trendy and hip. I think the food is very classic and tasty. Not my favorite, but very very good for the price (most meals are ~$10.00) and the portions are perfect. Not too much, not too little. I highly recommend anyone try this restaurant. And if you are a visitor to NYC, it's a great area of town with lots of other things to experience near the restaurant. This is where I take all of my out of town guests and I haven't had a complaint yet.

I simply loved it. Had dinner there on Sat night, and had to come back Sunday as I was craving it the whole day. Especially recommend grilled squid and tuna tartare which was delicious. Jade dumpling - very nice steamed vegetable dumpling, very tasty sauce. Also, try the duck!

"I love the name of this place. Everytime someone asks me what my favorite Thai restaurant is in the city, I throw back my head William Shatner style and yell it at the top of my lungs. Not really, but that would be funny. Not really. ANYWAY, this really is the best Thai place in the city. It has a seemingly out of place industrial feel to it, but for some reason I actually think it fits. The appetizers alone are worth a trip here: the fried calimari is perfectly tender and the sauce that comes with it is amazing, and the spring rolls are light and crisp while still having some real substance. The masaman curry, which I judge every Thai restaurant on, couldn't be improved upon. I didn't have dessert, but I assume that they do this just as well as everything else. I actually just suggested Klong as a place to go for appetizers and drinks, which may seem odd for a Thai place, but at their prices and portions, it's perfect for this as well as a full meal."

Klong is supposed "street" food, authentically from Thailand. But authentic it is not, their food is usually drenched in sauce when dishes are supposed to be dry (pad thai AND fried rice). my lad nah was swimming in a tasteless pool of gravy with very little noodle and meat. And when I asked for a common Thai accompaniment for the lad nah, they didn't have it! If you are trying to pass off as an authentic Thai restaurant, please have the appropriate sauces...Food is served in ridiculously large plates that make the already overpriced small portions look even smaller. My party's shrimp rangoon (which is a city in burma, so i don't even know why it's in an "authentic" thai restaurant) was served to us with bad shrimp! And i agree, the restaurant is way too dark in there. Never coming back again.
