I've been ordering from Thai 51 almost weekly for a month. The food is great, and the delivery very quick. I have no issues with the portion sizes. I'm always full after eating their food, and, obviously and pleased enough to keep going back.

This is a great little nook of a place with pleasant service and quality meals. I live in the 'hood and go here once a week and have never had a bad meal or service. It is small and therefore can be loud so it's not really a great first date place. The decor and lighting does the best it can to help combat the lack of space. If you want good Thai this is the best in a 15 block area. They also have quick and good take out service!

The space is small and cramped. I felt like I was in a nomad camp, when the people piled on top of each other in the cramped space. The food was in small servings but quite tasty. I was impressed by the flavors, but the portions were very small. Most dishes were very good, but the dessert came to shock me as the advertised "mixed fruit" was from a tin can. I could tell straight away with the perfect chunks, that this was tinned fruit. I did complain about it, and they defended the dish, by swearing this is what thai people in thailand eat all the time... tin canned fruit. I obviously know that is false, as in thailand, you can pick the fruit right off the trees... It was at the end of the night, and to our horror, 3 garbage bags passed our table, door opened, letting in the bitter cold, and then 2 bikes passed in the door past our table, and then the lights were switched high up almost blinding me! I had to ask the lights be turned down so I could adjust my vision again to see my money for the bill. This is why I said a sliding board, as the beginning my friend and I had been impressed by the flavors of food, but then the dessert was canned fruit, and then 3 garbage bags passed by us, 2 bicycles passed by us with snow and muck dripping off them on the floor, then the lights switched on full. When my friend complained of the canned fruit, staff was defensive, and she was not impressed that they didnt appreciate feedback. I doubt I will be back, as they dont seem to appreciate feedback, and it was a dissapointment to have garbage bags pass while I am trying to eat.

I have been looking for decent Thai takeout in Midtown East and finally found some! I am a picky eater and they were very helpful and nice. My food came in 15 minutes and it was all delicious (I had green curry and veggie dumplings). Will definitely order it asap!

I work around the area, and Thai 51 was reccomended. I got the lunch special, a large dish that came with rice, soup and soda, all for only $10. I highly reccomend it.
