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.

Very good restaurant, but bring back the chicken soup!

They took less time than they said they would. The food was spicy, delicious. I wish the portions had been a bit bigger.

This is absolutely the best, most authentic Thai food I've had since I got back from Thailand. Seriously spicy. Enjoy!

There have got to be a dozen Thai places in this area (that's counting Yum Yum Bangkok as one, not three) and Pure is by far the best. While the others all serve versions of each others dishes, Pure stands alone. The flavor is robust, the ingredients fresh and the authenticity unmatched. A warning to those with weak palettes: when they say spicy, they mean it! But while others may be all heat, even their hottest dish provides a mouthful of flavor. Do NOT miss this gem. I've lived and worked in the are for over a decade and there is no equal. Toss all your other Thai menus and enjoy exploring theirs. You will not be disappointed.
