I will start this review by admitting that I've struggled in years past to find a decent meal with an urban feel on the Upper West Side and Morning Side Heights in particular. Thai Market has come in and changed the game. Atmosphere: The ambiance at Thai Market is fresh, kind of 'clubby' and slightly hip. If you didn't know you were uptown, you could possibly think you were downtown. For those of you who are tired of trekking the the East/West Village for a meal that feels like an adult experience, this is the place you're looking for. Also, the bar itself is also nice, so if you just want to have a place to meet you friends and have a few drinks, Thai Market won't disappoint. The Food: I will give the food an above average rating. As another reviewer mentioned earlier, there are so many Thai restaurants in the city. Many of them serve food that is sauce and sugar laden. Thai Market trends in this direction, but not as much as some other Thai restaurants I've been to in New York. I do say, I favor their Green Vegetable Curry. A tip: pony up the additional 2 bucks for extra vegetables. You'll get twice the meal for next to nothing. The Service: I've only been to Thai Market once, so please bear this in mind; however, I have no complaints about the service. When I went, it was very crowded. My friend and I had to wait at the bar for about 15 minutes, but when a table opened up we were seated promptly. Our server checked on us a few times before we were ready to order, and he was very patient with our indecision, assuring us we could 'take our time.' Even though it was busy, we didn't feel pressured to 'get it and get out.' Assessment: you cannot lose. We paid less than $40, including tip, for 2 beers, 2 appetizers and 2 entrees. The food and service were good and the price was more than right. If you like Thai and you live in the vicinity, feel confident in your choice to dine here.

We just came back from Thai Market and had 3 dishes from the daily offer. Everything was extremely fresh, and the spices were perfectly balanced. Great value for money!

Ive been eating here for over 2 years now and I've really enjoyed the food. I ordered a Shrimp Pad Sapparod today and it was different and better and great. They battered the shrimp (something I never noticed them doing before) and it absorbed the sauce well...it was the best shrimp I've had in ages! The cashews were so delicious, the beansprouts...I dont know what they did - but keep it up - it's an improvement on something that was already pretty good.

Given that Thai restaurants pop up in this city like McDonald's, Thai Market is a gem. It's definitely a standout and probably one of the best in the city. Food is imaginative and delicious, price is very reasonable and atmosphere is well, like a Thai market. Service is not amazing but what can you do? Go for the food - you'll keep returning.
