Bad news first: If you call to order, you will get a busy signal for at least 20 minutes, even on a weeknight. When (if) they pick up, they'll have trouble taking your order and may hang up before you, say, give your credit card info or complete your order. Then the delivery takes forever. If you eat at Song, the service will be surly and slow, and you'll wait forever for a sterile table in a weirdly stark environment. However. The food is pretty good and reasonably priced. Fresher and less greasy than comparable Thai nearby. Good specials. I don't know that it's worth all the hassle; if you're over Cobble Hill way, go to their sister restaurant, Joya, and eat outside on a warm summer night. A crisp glass of white wine and one of their curries, enjoyed outdoors in their garden, makes up for all the BS you endure to get it.

Just big gloppy plates of greasy food. I don't expect authentic thai at these prices but this stuff makes places like Beet or Mango look like the real thing (which they're far from being, obviously). Also seriously bad service. I guess it's so popular because it's so cheap but there are a lot of new places that are around the same price, so don't bother!

This place used to be good but after last night's meal there I doubt I'll return. Food was 100% mediocre and my noodle dish was actually a bit burnt. Service was poor. While I sympathize with a busy waitress, she was rude and kept forgetting everything we asked for. Atmosphere is dark and in its attempts to feel trendy ends up feeling sort of warehousey. That said, the food is cheap but I'd try one of the newer places on 5th avenue before I'd dine at Song again.

Cheap and amazing. Do it already.

The food is really good, but if you order by phone prepare to encounter 15+ minutes of busy signals after which you are likely to spend 10 minutes on hold.

Trying to call at night is impossible. If you are lucky to get the phone ringing, they hang up sometimes which means you are stuck trying to call for the next half hour again. Still, cheap eats and not too bad.

I don't live in the slope and pass several Thai restaurants just to get to Song. I've had food there/take out, easily, 100 plus times and I've never had bad service, never had a problem getting through, and the one time the music was loud I asked about turning it down and they did it happily. The food is great! The service is very good. And the price is unbelievable for the amount of food you get. They even catered an event for us and we had leftovers for days! I've been there on really busy nights where it's been packed and you can barely get out of the place let alone get in, and sure the ladies working the front are a little stressed but never overboard. Go alone and sit at the bar and have a great time or bring you friends and stuff yourselves in the dinning room. You can't go wrong! Give a fair shot before turning your nose up to one of the few gems in the neighborhood.
