food is decent for the price but the service is a drawback. i've called in numerous times to get take-out orders, half the time the line is busy; often they don't pick up. even when they do pick-up, sometimes they put you on hold for several minutes, then forget about you. when you call in, they'll usually tell you the food is ready in 15 minutes. however, when i arrive 20-30 minutes later, the food is often not ready; even when it is ready, they make you stand in line waiting to pay while the person is still taking phone orders. they have one person trying to take the cash for payments as well as take phone orders at the same time, so it ends up taking forever. ordering from this restaurant is one frustrating experience and the only reason i even eat there anymore is because it is close to where i work, and the food is decently cheap.

This Thai restaurant has a great midtown location. Recently, my friends and I went to get some dinner- and we got these huge portions and ended up having to take the food home because there was so much. I recommend avoiding lunch rush- though it's nice to have Thai food as an option while at work.

My partner and I visited this restaurant for lunch on 5th Feb 2007, and we were definatley not dissapointed. The food was the best we'd had since visiting Thailand last year. We got chatting to the waiter about Thailand and how beautiful it is, he later came back with a couple of books about different destinations in Thailand that were worth visiting (which he gave us free of charge). People are far to quick to criticise and slow to praise. This restaurant is definatley worth a visit for the fantastic food and welcoming staff.

That's not true that Thai people do not use chopsticks. I am half Thai, and was taught how to use chopsticks at a young age. In Thailand, they only use spoons, knives and chopsticks. Forks are rare. If you request chopsticks at the restaurant, you will get them. This is America. This restaurant is in America. They are catering to Americans. If you order in Thai...they'll give you a spoon and chopsticks. This place is one of two restaurants in NYC that has great Thai food.

In response to someone saying, "How can an Asian restaurant not have chopsticks?" FYI, the Thai people don't use them.

That's the only comment I have...obviously catering to the tourists of Times Square. 2nd Ave. Pongsri is so much better. How can an Asian restaurant not have chopsticks?!

My husband and I made our annual trip to NYC in February 2006 and discovered Pongshri for the first time. We ended up eating here 3 times during our week vacation. The Pineapple Fried Rice is second to none! We are planning our vacation for January and it makes my mouth water to even think about it. The food is delicious and the price is among the most affordable that we have found in NYC. Try it!
