Land Thai Kitchen

Delicious Food! Arguably the best Thai in NYC ... this coming from someone who is a Thai food connoisseur. One of the things I'm most impressed with is the size of the Thai Ice Tea. Usually, when you order thai ice tea at a restaurant, they bring you a slim glass with heaps of ice, 2 schlurps of tea and you're done. At Land, the Thai ice tea comes in a huge ginger pot shaped vessel for lack of a better word ... it's practically bottomless! They've got a great decor, though it's a tight fit with the people sitting next to you ... totally worth it! There is usually a wait, but they've got a great deal with the bar next door, for discount drinks ... and then they call you on your cell phone to let you know your table is available.

Very flavorful food! I can't stand most of the places on this side of town, but this one is always a pleasure. I usually get it for lunch because the lunch special comes at an incredible price and portion size. You can't go wrong....especially with the veggie dumplings...yum! Only thing I have not loved is the pad thai...but pad thai in general is so tired an played out its like ordering a cheeseburger...so I can't truly fault them because it may just be me. Other than that I give it two thumbs up.

great atmosphere at this local spot, but tonight i had the displeasure of eating the blandest green curry this side of bangkok. they must've watered down the coconut milk with regular milk because the broth was almost translucent and with zero flavor. i'd give this place another shot but will definitely take a different ordering strategy.

This is a great little nook of a place with pleasant service and quality meals. I live in the 'hood and go here once a month and have never had a bad meal or service. It is small and therefore can be loud so it's not really a great first date place. The decor and lighting does the best it can to help combat the lack of space. If you want good Thai this is the best in a 15 block area. They also have quick and good take out service!

When I moved up to the UWS I doubted that I would find a great Thai place up here. Then on the recommendation of a friend I gave Land a try and I couldn't be happier. The food is spicy and definitely tasty, the delivery always arrives in 15 minutes, and the food is a very good value. The restaurant is too small to eat in on the weekend because there is always a wait, but it makes for great delivery!

I've been to a lot of Thai places, & this has got to be one of the best. The Pad See Ew w/ chicken was phenomenal. Plus lunch specials are only $8 & include an appetizer & an entree, which filled me up. I know that I'll be a regular.

Land is a literally a skinny hallway. Although the restaurant is small and narrow, it was lively and vivacious when you got inside. The stylish dim lighting give it an alluring, seductive undertone. Definitely go for the Drunken Noodle With Chicken, which is only $9.
