Land Thai Kitchen

This local place is really yummy and inexpensive, not quite nice enough for a big dinner out for a special occassion, but certainly a great takout place or a casual dinner with one or two friends, due to the restaurant's small size.

We've been ordering from Land every Friday night for the past 5 months and have never been disappointed by the flavorful and fresh entrees. I highly recommend the Green Curry with Chicken, Wok Basil with Beef and Pad Thai with Shrimp! The delivery usually take about 20 minutes, not bad at all.

This is great small cozy restuarant and reasonably priced. Nice ambiance and interesting bathroom. All six of us loved it. The servers are mostly Thai and are very pleasant. Land is the closest authentic Thai I found so far in manhattan, though they don't boost to be. How many places serve sticky rice in banana leaves? It makes a big difference! Note, the food is spicy! I love spicy food though. The papaya salad ... yes, someone who does it right! (well they are missing the small crabs, but that's forgiveable). Ok, now I'm hungry. In the cold New York winter, Land Thai will warm you up.

The food is average at best, as another reviewer noted, and the place is losing some of it fresh appeal since its arrival here. It's really too bad that this is pretty much the only Thai option in the area, and I think that really explains why they get so much business. Don't get me wrong -the food is OK, and it's not outrageously expensive. It's just that you'll get much better food and prices at other Thai places in town, and certainly places like Saigon Grill, Ollie's, and Penang on the Upper West Side (not Thai, but still good :) One tip for ordering - if you're not into spicy food, implore them to decrease the spice on the dishes, even those marked with one star.

The food is excellent. The chef is from Thailand, the food is delicious! Sometimes I order for lunch AND dinner. The atmosphere is divine. The bathroom sink is very unique. The Land staff is very kind.

Average, at best. The Tom Yum Guong soup was pretty good, with a couple good size shrimp and some zesty flavor. But the Massaman Curry with Lamb was weak - watery sauce, no real flavor and chewy lamb.

You can depend on reasonably efficient delivery. I've never been to the restaurant but they do make good "pad see ew" and the pea tendrils are a good side dish.
