I had never been to NYC before and on top of that had Thai before.. so this was a welcome first. I had the garlic and black pepper stir fried chicken and it was one of the best meals I have ever had. Would recommend it to anyone!

I've been to Pongsri on 48th several times now while on trips to Manhattan. I get wicked cravings for their Pra Ram Long Song dish-- chicken or beef version-- because the peanut sauce is delectable. Frankly, I could eat a whole bowl of this lush sauce, independent of anything else -- it's that tasty. Finish it off with a palate-cleansing plate of freshly sliced sweet mango and a triangle of sticky rice, and you have the perfect meal. Atmosphere, service and price are humble and honest. Great value; don't miss it.

The food is delicious, perfectly prepared....and the service was great! Its the only Thai food I rat in NY and I've been here for 25 years and counting...

Just had a great lunch here. Great value and good food. Cant go wrong here. Lots of variety to choose from and its a big enough place to be seated quickly. I recommend this place.

My husband and I discovered this Thai restaurant almost ten years ago. We love Thai food and have been to many Thai restaurants. Our favorite remains to be Pongsri in the Theater district. We've been to the one near Chelsea and didn't think their food or ambience was as good as the one on 48th street. When we lived in NY we went at least twice a month. We even got friendly with the management and wait staff who treated us like family. Now that we live in South Florida, we find ourselves really missing the place. Whenever we go back to NY to visit relatives and friends, we ALWAYS make a stop at Pongsri. In fact, we'll be going again next week to NYC and you can imagine where we'll end up! We have tried many items on the menu and have never been disappointed. Not once in ten years! And you cannot beat the value. You certainly get quality and quantity for your money. If you aren't trying to get dinner before the start of a Broadway show, be certain to get there either before 7pm or after 8:30pm so you can avoid most of the heavy crowds. But be sure you do go, you won't regret it!

I recommended this restaurant to a group of people I was going to the theater with. It was the best part of the evening. The dishes were very tasty and nicely presented. The bill was palatable. The green tea wine was an adventure that I would not repeat. We wound up ordering too much, but not sorry about that. Although Asian restaurants in general are not known for their desserts, I have no hesitation in recommending the banana fritters.

We had the misfortune to discover Pongsri only at the end of our stay in New York - had we known earlier, we would have eaten there every night! As it was, we spent our last two nights in town there - and were farewelled on our last night with "see you tomorrow!" I felt like we'd become regulars! Being so close to Thailand at home in Oz, we have a large Thai poulation and, as a result, access to some of the best Thai food outside of Thailand. The part of town we live in has a multitude of Thai restaurants, so we've experienced a lot of Thai food - some magnificent, some not so much so. The food at Pongsri exceeded all but one place we've eaten at home, and believe me, that's a very high recommendation. The decor and atmosphere were wonderful - they made us feel so welcome! - and we couldn't fault the service. We'll be back in NYC later this year, and will certainly be back to Pongsri. Sawasdee kai!
