As far as takeout goes, the food is totally inconsistent. One day something can be okay - the next, same dish is totally flavorless. They need to do a better job. Portions are very small - the other reviewer was right on target. And you do have to pay extra for most items - even rice. Too bad the owner who is there all the time cant figure it out to make the place better, otherwise it would be a gem.

Which is saying a lot, considering how many Thai places can be found in this neighborhood. Fresh, delicious, fast, and incredibly friendly.

This place has fantastic Thai food. Awesome curries, authentically spicy dishes, and appropriate portions (hard to find in this country!). I've had nothing but success with delivery, which came - complete and correct - in twenty minutes after saying they'd be there in twenty minutes. I'm always surprised that it's not more crowded because this place is really a gem amongst the homogenized Thai/Chinese/Indian/Anything food you find outside ethnic enclaves in New York.

I love this place. It is another example of the Thai in Greenpoint being way better than any Thai I have had in Manhattan. Then again, I've never been to a super-expensive Thai place in Manhattan, but why should I when this place is cheap & uses such fresh ingredients that it's downright inspirational?

Ordered delivery from here last night for the first time. It had several strikes against it. They charge an extra 1.50 for brown rice instead of white and then give you about a half full container of it. If I had known I would've just skipped the rice entirely. Thank god i didn't though, because they give you such little food that if it weren't for the rice I would've had about 3 bites for my dinner. A bit too much oil was used in the cooking a well I feel, as I like my Thai light and healthy. The only pro was that they make the food authentically spicy which luckily I love, but if you don't like super super spicy Thai do not go here.

There are a lot of Thai restaurants in Greenpoint but this one is by far the best in terms of the food and service. (The more modern and hipThai Cafe across the street is way overrated and the food there is not as good as at OTT). We live in the neighborhood and eat here or get take out nearly once a week. Recommended dishes are: vegetarian spring rolls, garden salad with peanut sauce, vegetable fried rice, or pra ram pak curry. Strangely, the pad thai here is not the best. Otherwise, this place is highly recommended!

Relative to the other Thai restaurants in the neighborhood, a "5" is a well deserved rating. Not all the food is authentic (foodies should go to Jackson Heights for the real deal), but it's excellent nonetheless. For instance, there's no salmon in Thailand, but the salmon dishes at Ott(especially the "Salmon Jien") are really good! Another tip, if you're ordering in (the delivery is very quick, and the delivery guy is really nice): Ott has curry puffs, even though they're not on the menu. Just ask!
