This is the 2nd time that the restaurant cheated on us. We ordered a small dish of food and they charged us large one to get more money. On top of that a cashier even suggested us to tip 20%. The food is not that great and expensive I don't know why it's packed. Is it monkey see monkey do in this case? We'd not go there any more. We will go to Nha Trang instead. It's more family oriental.

After having read such great reviews about this restaurant,we decided to go there for authentic vietnamese food. I was born and bred in vietnam and having just been back form holidays there as well,the flavours are still in my head...so when we went for the traditional pho ...turned out to be one of the most diappointing pho ever tasted in my life, it was everything but pho which i have become an expert on it since it's my favourite dish. we ordered spring rolls and again absolutely disappointing, their banh cuon was nothing like the original recipe and futhermore i m sure it was almost off. you would think the service is good...the waiter sighed to our every single request and showed unhappiness in being there. The herbs that are supposed to come with the pho were not even in full and between the two of us we only had barely 3 branches of it ,when i asked for more,it seemed a real problem! definitely not worth it

Normally I won't disclose my name for reviews, for obvious reasons, mostly for the fact that 99% of NYC restaurants are overrated. With that said, IMHO Thaison is by far, the best Vietnamese in NYC. Especially their Pho and most especially their Seafood Pho. Everything on their menu is made with obviously fresh ingredients, you can taste and see the freshness on every single plate. Anyway, you do not have to worry about eating here and wondering if this place is as good or better than that other Vietnamese place, because quite frankly it is the best.

a friend introduced me to this place and it is now the gold standard. the atmosphere may be lacking what with the greasy floors and florescent lighting but who cares when the food is this inexpensive and that insanely good? for under 10$ you can have yourself a delicious and hearty meal consisting of shrimp summer rolls and an enormous bowl of pho, redolent with herbs and spices. they don't skimp on the meat either. anytime i'm in the area, i make sure to stop in here for a fantastic food experience that leaves me happy and well-sated.

A friend from out of town just asked today for suggestions on where to get some good food. Of course, I suggested my two favorite Vietnamese restaurants, Thaison, being one of them, and Pho Grand (which I just finished reviewing). I've been coming to Thaison for 12+ years since my college days. The food is delicious and fresh, the staff always friendly although quick moving. It is so good. I've dined alone on many occasion stopping for a quick bite while running errands in the neighborhood, to celebrating with big groups here. I will always be a loyal customer.
