    Good Spot

    This place is the best Thai I've had in the East Village. I'm neither a Thai food expert nor an EV expert, but I haven't eaten a lot of Thai and lived in the EV for the past 8 months. I was disappointed by the handful of other places I tried. This place didn't blow me away, but it is solid and the price is what you expect. Considering the fairly low price, the atmosphere is good (if odd), the glass windows are nice for people watching, and the staff kept the water refills coming constantly, which makes my gf very happy. Might be even better in nice weather, I think it will be open-air.

    Just OK...

    Had been interested in trying this place for a while and had heard they had a good cocktail menu. Visit last week and was quite disappointed. The Papaya Salad (one of my fave Thai dishes) was pretty bad - just papaya, soggy beans and tomato, no peanuts and a relatively tasteless dressing. The Pad Thai was fine, but nothing fab. Thought the drinks were kind of expensive too - and they didn't have any bottled beer available when we went. Unfortunately, really cannot recommend.

    Will not maintain 1 star

    I was completely confounded after eating at Rhong Tiam and trying to rationalize the restaurant having 1 michelin star. I do not see how they will possibly maintain the accolade. It's not terrible, its just not that good. And the atmosphere is quite odd.

    Above and beyond Service

    We order from here all the time and have always been fans. Last night we ordered just before closing. Once our food arrived there was a problem with our order. We called to let know for future reference assuming that no one would be there. To our surprise the owner and head chef answered the phone, re-made both of our dishes and delivered them personally just before midnight, an hour after the restaurant had closed. The food was delicious and we were both taken aback. If that isn't good service then I don't know what is. One thing is for sure they definitely have 2 life long customers after last night!

    Nope

    Ordered delivery tonight, so cannot comment on decor. The lady on the phone did not instill confidence after first telling me something was unavailable and then saying that they could make it. It was a duck dish that was not good - I should have taken the hint that they didn't have the correct ingredients. The Pork on fire is only OK but is the most overrated dish in NY. The pork is not tender and it is certainly not on fire in terms of heat. The Tom Yum soup was not spicy or flavorful. Overall, I decided to pay a bit more to try this place but it was not worth it.

    WRONG-tiam

    We ordered Thai iced teas with our dinner and when the order finally came 50 minutes later, NO THAI ICED TEA. So we call to ask where they are and they're totally rude and say we never ordered anything even though we ordered online and they had our money which we still can't get back. Plus, my wife, who is from Bangkok, spoke with them in Thai and immediately heard in their accents that they NOT from Bangkok just so you know. Then the iced teas never showed up even after we called to complain. They didn't return the money. So that's fraud. The food was passable at best, nothing special, probably the 38th best and 3rd worse Thai food I've ever ordered. Woulda been better if there was Thai iced tea to go with it.

    delicious

    The food was excellent. Pork on fire is a must, green curry was great, curry puffs great. Chorizo was ok but not really my thing- my companion liked it though. Service was not slow but it wasnt full so it was easy for the 2 servers to cover the few tables. Much better than other thai I've had in manhattan... not cheap but not expensive and worth it...
