So I moved here from the midwest, but you'd be shocked to hear I've been struggling in of all cities New York to find great thai food. I've been spoiled by this really authentic sole proprietorship back home. Anyway, after trying dozens of thai places, I finally found one I'll be ordering from again. The chicken satay is fantastic and the pad thai is done very well. It's also less expensive than a lot of the other thai places I've tried before, so overall, I'd say try this place. As a caveat I've only ever ordered delivery and I've never gone to the restaurant.

This is my little Thai slice of heaven. The lunch special is amazingfor only 7 bucks, you can get a salad, appetizer and a delicious curry/fried rice/what have you. The waitress is a sweetheart and she is very attentive of her customers' needs. As for the decor, yeah it's trying and failing to be really trendy (to me it looks like the interior of a white lego) but I prefer the quality of the food over the trendiness of the space . I eat here once a week, and I have not yet tired of the food or the atmosphere. It doesn't break the bank either. Try Thai Terminal out...you won't regret it.

The food there is seriously par above the rest. I only order take out from here so I can't comment on atmosphere, but believe me, I've had the standard thai dishes (chicken friend rice, pad thai, etc.) at over 6 restaurants in the Village, and this one is the tops for the price. The only place I like better is Klongs, but it is pricier. I really recommend this place, you'll find yourself going back to the Terminal.

My husband and I kind of found this place on a whim and decided to give it a try because it was late and we were hungry. We were really surprised. The food was great but the atmosphere just felt like and airport (thus terminal.) I would definitely go back though because the food was so great.

By far one of the best thai takeouts in the city. The drunken noodle is unmatched! Best of all the service is friendly and weirdly fast. As for eating in, the setting is intimate and the decor perhaps tries too hard but nothing that takes away from a great meal!

I don't particularly like Thai food that much, and when I came here tonight, I was extremely impressed. It was, without a doubt, one of the best meals I've had in New York City, and anyone that lives in the city will testify that that is a huge accomplishment. It's very small, and apparently undiscovered, because it was no trouble to make a reservation for 10 last minute. Similarly, the service was superb, though they didn't bring all the food at the same time which was a bit of a drag. The waitress was very sweet, and the food was scrumptious. Definitely try the Pineapple Fried Rice w/ Chicken. And the Fried Ice Cream is a great choice for dessert. In the end my meal was about $15, and I will definitely be going back.

My boyfriend is a strict vegetarian and I'm a meat eater. While I like veggie food too, I was in the mood to find a place that had a balance for us both. We ordered the Vegetarian curry puffs and peanut dumplings for apps. We were going to get a papaya salad, but the waitress told us they were out of papaya. We had gotten to the restaurant late in the evening, so no big deal. We got the Curry puffs instead and both apps were great. I had the Pineapple Fried Rice with beef and he had Pad Thai with Vegetarian duck and we both enjoyed our meals. I've never had Thai fried rice before and really liked it. My only complaint is that there was a table of drunken, obnoxious fools across from us and since the restaurant is small, it grated on my nerves. The owner should have cut those idiots off, but served more booze. They were still there after my BF and I left, so I hoped they at least tipped big. All in all, a great meal for both of us and a great place to go to.
