Yes, very small space but food and good service make up for it. Best dishes: grilled chicken satay, jungle fried rice, grilled shrimp with bok choy. Ask for everything well done and 2 stars for a bit spicy. Get there 'early' because the place gets packed -- always a good sign with any restaurant.

Me and my boyfriend went to the pure Thai place. There were a lot of down falls to the place. For the place is small that you no space to walk. Second the wait so long you stand because hardly no seats. Third, the workers are greedy and selfish with tips. We gave tip and they wanted more. They make give tip or expect more. Lastly, the worker always touch their hair and other people and they don't wash their hands or gloves.

When we arrived we were told it would be a 45 minute wait. We were not in a hurry, so we sat on the long bench at the entrance of the restaurant. We were seated within 15 minutes. Our waiter explained several dishes to us, as we are not very familiar with Thai food. We ordered spring rolls, spare ribs, vegetable dumplings and chicken satay as appetizers. All were delicious, especially the dumplings. The main courses we chose were a variety of soup and noodle dishes. They were all tasty and the spice individually adjusted. Would definitely return.

Great food, great atmosphere, worth the short wait.

Went to Pure Thai last week for dinner. There was a line, but the wait not unbearable...maybe 15 minutes. My friend, who spent over a year in Thailand, says this is the most authentic Thai restaurant around. I've never been there, so I can't tell whether she is right, but in any event the food is quite wonderful. My appetizer spare ribs were generous and delicious, as were all other dishes. But make sure that you like hot when the menu indicates it: Thai hot is VERY hot (but very tasty)! The atmosphere is almost non-existent, but the staff are very nice and accommodating.

I live on the UES, so I have eaten at their sister restaurant, Land, many times. I was upset when Land closed over what appears to be yet another lease dispute (I perpetually aim my blame on the 2nd ave subway construction). Let me caveat this review with having been a take out customer. Not withstanding cooled down noodles, their Nakorn-Patom Duck Noodles rates as my top noodle soup in the city. That's impressive and especially considering I've tried most the heralded competition in the neighborhood...which I consider to be the Mecca of noodles. I will be back and certainly venture on to the other flavors in their arsenal.
